Hello everyone, Sgt here.
 
I've been lurking here during around 2 months, and now, I've finally decided to come out of my cavern. 
I was thinking, which is the better way for me to introduce myself than doing a build log ? So lets do this :)
 
I'm sure i'll meet a lot of nice people here :)
 
I'm an huge fan of Portal games, so my idea with this build is to build something pure with a little touch of color here and there.
 
Here is the color scheme :
White, Orange, Light Blue, Black and Nickel
 
Luckily, all my hardware parts match to this color scheme, as well as my cooling parts.
 
Now you might want to know what's the parts list ? Well, here you go :)

How much did all this cost because I'm planing on doing a very similar build but with 2 titans.

That case is gigantic! I can't wait to see where this goes.

 

It is !

 

 

How much did all this cost because I'm planing on doing a very similar build but with 2 titans.

 

A bit more of 10k euros (case had a major impact, since the case only + some accessories costed me like 800 euros).

Colors will be added from fittings, cables sleeving and leds (those from the motherboard (blue) and some from Monsoon Lightport (orange)).

 

Quick teaser for you :

- 4 x PCIE 8pin

- 2 x PCIE 6pin

 

Here is some pictures !

Ah, a fellow Caselabs owner, nice to meet you. :)

They really are phenomenal cases, and despite this:

A bit more of 10k euros (case had a major impact, since the case only + some accessories costed me like 800 euros).

I have no regrets, it was absolutely money well spent (mine was slightly less at around 720 EUR).

Very much looking forward to the rest of this, cher monsieur. :)

Ye, CaseLabs cases quality is just... worth the money, and i like the fact that their cases are made in the USA, unlike others company where its made in China. (no offence of course, i have nothing against China ^^)

I will !

 

I've ordered some coolant yesterday :

- 3L of Mayhems Ultra Pure H20 - so I can flush my system correctly

- Biocide Extreme - I'm not sure if the PH of the Ultra h20 is neutral.

- 4L of Mayhems X1 Clear - Performance cooling, nothing to add :)

 

Hopefully everything will be delivered this week so I can work on almost every part of my build while my loop is flushing.

Oh, that sounds intriguing. If the paint job is done right that could look very nice indeed.

Are they still under warranty?

What's a warranty ? :D

Enthusiasts doesn't know this word haha

Hehe, true that! :D

I'm kind of dreading the day when I will paint my SR-2 though, I'm not so sure if I could find

a replacement if things go wrong, they're kind of hard to find these days.

You can still check on B-Stock @ eu.evga.com - they have a lot of SR-2. 

B-Stock come with 1 year warranty but no accessories. I suppose that you have bought your SR-2 normally, so you're supposed to have the accessories already :)

 

EVGA price it at 270€.

 

I spend my time on the b-stock part to buy old series GPU, so I can do Ln2 benchmark with hardware that are not available anymore, unless you buy them on Ebay etc..

Screen Idea update !

 

Back to home, so i worked on my idea, and removed the plastic bezel of one of my monitor :

 

med_gallery_15108_188_327680.jpg

 

at the bottom left, you can see the Touch pcb, which allow you to power the monitor, adjust stuff etc. I'll have to tape it so i won't paint over it.

 

Yes, i tested it and it work :)

 

med_gallery_15108_188_112962.jpg

 

Now, lets do this to my second monitor, i'll let the last like this so i can still play on my computer. i'll do the last monitor (the one i'm using right now) when at least one of my Bezel Removed monitor will be done :)

 

Hope you enjoyed this update guys
