This is my rig in it's current form. My rig always changes, due to testing of new parts, upgrades etc.

 

The specs of my rig is as follows:
Intel Core I5 3750K at 4,2GHz
MSI z77 Mpower
Corsair Dominator Platinum 2x8GB 1600Mhz
Asus GTX 980 4GB
Corsair AX860i
2x Corsair Force in RAID0
2x Western Digital Black 1TB in RAID0

Watercooling specs:
EK Supremacy CSQ Clean
EK FC980 GTX CSQ Clean
EK-D5 x-res 140 CSQ
Alphacool VPP655 D5 pump
Alphacool Nexxos St30 360mm
Phobya Xtreme 200mm V2
Variety of EK fittings and angled fittings.
Mayhems Pastel White.

 

Mods I've done to the case / hardware:

Cut out the top out of the case to make room for the 360 in the roof.

Modified the radiator bracket on the 200mm to allow a better positioning.

Cut a 13mm hole in the 5.25" area to route the hose in a neat way.

Modified the screws from the graphics card block, so that I could mount it with the EVGA backplate.

Modified the hard drive cage to mount the pump, along with a hole to route the cable from the pump.

Included this pictures to annoying all you OCD guys. But it was the best way I could mount it in order to hide the wires in a good way.

Looks quite good. Although I would suggest you route your PCI-E cables a little higher like maybe in the second from the top rubber grommet. It'll look much cleaner that way.

 

Solid build overall though I like it. Very stealth look internally.

 

I like it.

Great looking build. But who keeps recommending the Havik cooler? Expensive, loud and not that good performance...

It really does :) I wanted to paint the yellow stripes, but I'm not really sure how I should do it yet

IMO keep the yellow stripes, they add just a hint of colour and it looks great.

Thanks for the comments guys :)

 

 

Damn that's sexy. Planning SLI anytime soon :P

Sadly that won't happen anytime soon :(

The cables used to be like that with my old PSU. However since the PSU/cables is new, it means the cables was pretty stiff. So I wasn't able to do that properly. But the next time I take the machine apart, I'll most likely reroute that cables :)

I'm happy with the cooler. In my experience non of those are completely true. It's not that expensive compared with other coolers and their performance. It's pretty loud when the fans are running at 12v, but most fans are loud at 12v. Though mine are running at 5v, along with all my other fans. But even at 5v, the performance is very satisfying. It's compareable with the Noctua nhd14, obviously not as good. But also it's alot smaller, making room for non lowprofile RAM.

Hmmm, interesting... Thanks for the response, I will have to look at it a bit more.

I tried to take the top part off of my 600t but that one clip right next to where the 8-pin wire goes will not pop out

Very nice build, what's the noise like on that 680?

It's not bad. The 600 series was and still is fairly silent. I can barely hear it in idle, but when I play a game I can somewhat hear it. Not too bad though :)

Yea that clip is really tricky. Think I clicked all the others out first, and then I could wedge the top piece while doing some magic to get it off. :P

I bought the 680 right when it was launched. However I would happily exchange it for a 780 :D

 

I'm sorry, I had to.

Looks good though!

Haha that's so awesome! Can't believe you did that :D
