2x 9660 under Danger Den Copper blocks (4GPUS 2GB ram each) both are ASUS References.

Storage:

LSI MegaRaid 9260-8i

8x Patriot PI60GS25SSD (60GB each) for 450G in Raid 0

 

Cooling:

Dual Danger Den full card blocks all CU (They no longer exist)

Custom EKWB North Bridge (Acetal + EN)

Coolance EN CPU Cooler (Water Block)

Dual Radiators (Alphacool 140 x 3 Thick on the Top Danger Den 2 x 120 in the front)

Dual MCP 655 (new controllers) sitting on the floor next to the Swiftech reservoir in the bottom

The big column in standard cu pipe used in a home with two adapters to 3/8"

The curved cu is 3/4" HVAC loop bent to fit manually.

Custom copper, same pipe as in your AC and home depending on when your home was built; about 3 feet of it. Lots of 3/4 (3/4" outside 1/2 inside dia) tube as well where the pipe could not bend.

Cooling Loop is: Resivoir -> Pump 1 -> Pump 2 -> Veritcal Cooling Pipe -> Radiator on Top - > CPU - > North Bridge -> GFX Cards -> Radiator in Front -> Resivoior

Only moving parts are the fans and pumps which make about 18 - 28 decibles of noise.

Everything is closed now so air bleeding and loop design is quickly becoming a lost art.

 

#Wishlist

2 Radeon R9 ARES? Samsung SMX951?

Dual Acetal Block cover for my pumps?

4K Curved Monitors

+ MORE COPPER!

Right now it's my backup rig. Sorry about the cables I'm too preoccupied with life to organize them.
