My System Specs

Default Procyon II - Last Upgrades 2013

So anyhow, been a fair few upgrades to my Rig this past year:
1. Swapped out X58 for X79 (Evga Classy for RIVE & 980X for 3930k)
2. Swapped out SLi 580 Classy's for Tri SLi 680 Classy's
3. Swapped out TRUE for H100i

Now, here's the final 3 pieces:

4. Swapping out TJ09 (yep had it for almost 5 yrs) for Corsair 900D (considered the Cosmos II, but like the features on the 900D)

Corsair Obsidian 900D ATX Super Tower Case w/ Window 4X5.25 9X3.5INT USB3.0 No PSU

5. Swapping out H100i for Swiftech H320

Swiftech H320 Quiet Power PLUG-AND-PLAY Liquid Cooling System 4 Pin 3x 120mm Fans 3/8 Fitting

6. Adding a Lamptron FC9 Fan Controller

Lamptron FC9 5.25in Bay 4 Channel 50 Watts Per Channel Fan Controller 7 Colors LED - Black

I know the Case is huge, but this one will likely be around at least another 5 yrs and if I do decide to start meddling in Custom WC I'll have plenty of space ;)

Gonna run the Swiftech 320 in push / pull config with 6 x Noctua NF F Series Fans

Anyhow, should get the gear early next week, will post up some pics.....hey this is in lieu of no 4930k ;)
Hopefully I can bring my temps down enough to push the 3930k to 4.8 - 4.9 Ghz !!

Cheers

Okay guys....bloody busy week, trying to get so much done before heading off to work next week...spending the days working on my patio...repairs, pressure washing and staining....spending a few hrs in the evening putting Procyon II back together in its new home.

Anyhow...upgrade is complete, 900D is enormous....hate the mounting of the GPU's, friggin impossible to get at the securing screws.....does the back come off of this thing for access to GPU Bracket screws, anyhow managed to get a single screw in each.
Cable management is...well...no cable management really....the thing is so ginormous you can do whatever you want with the cables and it looks "neat" :)

Love the Lamptron FC9 Fan Controller....hey....need more Fan 3 Pin Splitters !! ;) Very smooth control and subtle lighting, nothing too obnoxious!!

Okay..the Swiftech H320 seems good so far, temps seem slightly cooler than with the H100i, although I havent gotten back into the OC'ing yet, perhaps this weekend once the Deck Project is done.
All 6 Noctua NF F Series mounted on the Radiator push / pull with all 6 Fans controlled by the FC9.....very nice....with all the Fans running full bore just a nice wooosh ;) Certainly a tad quieter than my TJ09....

I'll get some pics up over the next few days :)
