just dont do like me, have an alan key or a torqx available, if you need to take the socket cover off to change the backplate... Yeah charlie3.0 you can laugh.

The xeon backplate is perfect for the screws on the swiftech XT.

Torx T20 is required to change the backplates.

Actually, that derailed my build a bit as I couldn't find my torx set. A quick run to Canadian Tire and I got me a freaking 95 piece "screw anything and everything" set on sale for $19.99 (previously $99.99). I think I might have gotten screwed... since I only needed the T20. It looked like a good deal when I was there? :(

Here's what I do in that situation... go to Home Depot, buy tool, use tool, go back and tell them it was the wrong size, get $$ back This works great for something you'll only ever need once. My buddy who was a manager at my local store told me almost always works.

Well, it's a 95 piece set.... it comes in pretty much any size you can think of But I get the idea I'll probably just keep it, could have gotten much less for $19.99 even though 85% is probably redundant as I have most of those anyhow.

EDIT: Alright, Nina 2.0 is now up and running. Currently some stress tests, need a couple of 6-PIN extension cables so I can tuck most of them at the back. This thing is huge! I should be able to do optimization tonight and if everything goes as planned, I should be able to start folding as well.


What case?

Lian Li PC-A77FB. Wanted it all black interior but it's hard enough to find something that will accommodate the SR-2 in the first place. I was gunning for a PC-P80 at first but then NCIX had the PC-A77FB on sale for $229.00 (before tax) so I jumped on it

Any mods needed?
I have an 800D sitting in my closet but I am not sure the SR-2 will fit without much monkeying around.

800 D will fit, but you wont have access to all PCI slot. Wich for me is not a deal breaker. Look at what XEVEN . He will be using PCI-E 5 and 6.
