Welcome Back!

I apologize for not getting this up and done sooner. Needless to say the forums, and the front page got hacked, we since then have locked things down, and things appear to be better over all.

I was able to get the front page done sooner, but the forums with all of its data was MUCH more difficult to deal with. Needless to say, I just finished it! YAHOO!

Just in time with Facebook about to take a nose dive, and doing other crazy things to people. (Censorship, etc etc).

    Hello again everyone

    Finally, I have finished rebuilding and fusing together two of my older system into one "newer" rig! Why I say "newer"? It's because technically speaking, nothing much has changed hardware wise. What I have done was I took some of the parts from my old and disassembled Cosmos S Bloodlust rig as well as leftover parts from my CM 690 II Euphoria rig and fused them together in a new shell. As you will see, almost nothing has changed with the exception of the GPU and the case. I had a few strong reasons behind my decision to not upgrade to either socket 1155 or 2011, primarily of course financially, it is a huge investment to swap chipset, something I cannot do right now. Another would be that gaming wise, the X58 and the 950 can still handle newer games well enough to not warrant an upgrade. The final reason, well, I just love the look of a watercooled north bridge, something the new era will never see again.

    As I had mentioned, spec wise, nothing really has changed from the bloodlust build I had about 2 years ago, just putting it back in commission. Below are the specs:

    Hardware:

    CPU: Intel Core i7 950
    MOBO: Foxconn Bloodrage X58 chipset
    RAM: 6GB (3x2) Mushkin Blackline DDR3 1600 *currently running at 4GB due to a bad stick*
    GPU: Primary - Zotac GTX 570
    Secondary - EVGA GTS 250 512 MB as Physx Card
    PSU: PC Power & Cooling Red 750W Custom white paint
    SSD: Adata 64GB
    HDD: Primary - WD Velociraptor 150GB
    Secondary - WB Black 500GB
    CASE: Corsair 700D with Side window
    FAN CONTROLLER: NZXT Sentry LX
    DVD - LG Blu-Ray Burner x10 & Pioneer DVD burner

    Water-cooling Components:

    CPU Block - Swiftech Apogee GTZ
    GPU Block - GTX 570 - EK Waterblock for Reference GTX 580
    GTS 250 - Swiftech MCW60
    RAD 1 - Swiftech 360mm
    RAD 2 - Swiftech 240mm
    Reservoir - Danger Den Rad Reservoir
    Pump - Danger Den CPX1
    Fluid - Feser One Red
    Tube - Primochill White 1/2" ID 3/4" OD

    And with that, here are some pictures of the rig. I hope they aren't too big to be viewed. If so, please let me know and I will resize them.








































    I hope you all enjoyed viewing this build. I tried something unique and a bit different and thankfully it works well enough. Thank you for looking.

        Very impressive.

                Great job Sean, looks really nice. I especially like the fillport setup on the back feeding directly into the reservoir. Really neat idea.

                Now get some Ivy Bridge hardware in there

                    Thank you very much everyone It took me some time to come up with the layout and the flow and to make it work. Initially, this was not how I planned it to be. In the beginning, I was intending to use the cylinder as a splitter instead of just a reservoir lol. The reservoir was suppose to be outside by the fillport using a fillport reservoir attachment. But after much calculations, I figured that using the cylinder as a massive splitter would have a huge hassle and might impact on the flow pressure throughout the loop, so I discarded the idea and settled with this

                    @YMAA: Thank you I always thought that why bother drilling a hole for a fillport when you already have a premade hole behind the case that you can modify to make it work with a fillport. And coincidentally, it just works with the layout. And about ivy bridge, I'll consider it when I get more money or when hardware prices start dropping Too bad this will be the last build I will ever make that will involve watercooling the northbridge, since there's no longer a NB on intel boards, unless I go with AMD lol.

                    And speaking of Ivy bridge, I've a got a small surprise for u guys here I'll upload the pics later hehe.

                        I really like the fill/drain setup, always one part of a build I never put much thought into.

                        Looks great!
