I'm rockin' a single GTX 460 and I don't see any need to upgrade. I play my games at 1680 x 1050 everything turned up.

I'm really becoming more of a PC enthusiast and less of a gamer as of late. Older you get the more you work at home and the office. So finding myself having less and less time play games.

Much rather build, bench and just try new tech out.

ETA:
Totally understand where you are coming from, Fermi is still enough for Ultra 1080 settings.

Speaking of which, when is the next e-peen contest?

Just bench your new rig. Create a baseline for yourself and track your progress in a spreadsheet as you become better at staying stable.

I say bench in April/May, we should start doing a Quarterly e-peen since our rigs are always changing.

I have like 1 main rig but 3-4 other rigs in the house, Blue literally has a whole different set up for his main rig every month.

Update:

2 x EK Blocks from FrozenCPU arrived
1 x New EK Bridge

I was going to add it to my current loop right now but decided to wait until the 2nd Titan arrives along with EK backplates. My 2nd Titan shipped yesterday and the back plates ship out on the 7th.

So until then.. lame photos..









..and a teaser shot of the SM8 in progress. A lot will change from just this set up, have a 2nd D5 to add and replacing the 150 X3 RES with a 250 X3.

Yea I hope so.

I really haven't done much but sleeve the pump and install RADs and fans. I stuck the res there to just see. Going with a 250...

I was thinking about putting a D5 on the bottom where it is and a d5 straight up vertically lined up with the bottom pump and res.

Going with mayhem pastel black for the fluid, what do you guys think about yellow maybe?

Tubing will be black and sleeved with carbon fiber color. Only time u will see fluid is in the SLi bridge and res.

Just piling on. Have the water blocks for my 680s and the backplate became available from EVGA last so I ordered those. The water blocks are so heavy I decided to wait for the backplates for installation. I'm using Dragon Ice fluid right now. It looks awesome but I will probably switch over to Mayhem as I've heard it causes a lot less problems with the loop.

Then my MC35x will have to work at least a little.

I think some of you spend more time building PCs than actually using them to play games.

Lookc cool though, Coyote.

Yea that is true as of late.. I work a ton of hours at the office, so I rather come home to build something than sit in front a desk again.

Mostly only play on weekends now.

I would and always wait for backplates just because you are unscrewing the same screws twice. Plus you won't have to remove them from your loop.

I love backplates, since it is the part of the gpu you see the most.

What blocks did you buy?

Eta: what are using using for a bridge? Parralel or serial?

I'm Curol on Steam. No Skype.

I have EVGA Classifieds so I had to buy the blocks and plates from EVGA. Nothing else fits.

I think the loop will be parallel. I have one Swiftech rad/res in place already (360) and I have a Swiftech 240 rad/res that I should probably add to the loop. I'm doing it to eliminate fan noise from the cards. My temps are fine.

Did you have the fractal arc midi or R4 before this case?
