WIth your graphics cards in that orientation, PCIe extenders are obviously required. Are you not worried about the EMI between them?

I definitly am. The ribbon cables are a nightmare for the signal this fast, even dougth they are differential. I can shild the cables with conductive foil and ground it. When it doesn't help I have so spend 100 $ to buy a professional riser like 8KC3-0726-0250 from M3.

This looks neat as hell, definitely subbed.

EDIT: This are renderings of the first version. I will leave them here for historical reason.

 

I let my PC render a few hours....

still looks cool as hell, now do it with a amd card  :lol:

When I'm allowed to heat up the card to 95°C I can get rid of ~30% more heat. But the PSU will have a hard time and you migth burn your hand on the heat sinks :)

But think about about the possibilities: You could have a barbecue while gaming :D

This is awesome. Having not done CAD work to this extent I was wondering if you created all those parts yourself or if you downloaded them from some sort of parts library?Specifically something like the psu or gpu.

To be honest I donwloaded and modified a lot of them. I get the models from www.grabcad.com, its a grat site. The manufacturer of the heat sinks also provided the .stp model. I'm electrical engineer, not a draftsman. My skill in CAD work is limited. Therefor I'm glad I can use pre-done elements.

I'm a mechanical engineering student so I would love to throw together prototypes like this over the summer. I'll be sure to look through that site thanks.

Oh cool. When you are eager to draw a model, I suggest you make a Asrock Z97M OC Fromula. ;)

With the passive system I'm using rigth now, I once defrosted a buffer from the refrigerator. After a bit of rendering the butter had the rigth temperature me girlfriend could make cookies ^^

Update 1: 38 kg heat sinks ordered

 

So I got some quotes from swiss resellers for the heat sinks. But they are all ridiculous. I'm not paying 1500 CHF for three heat sinks....

Now I ordered directly from Slovakia, for one quarter of the price. Normaly I try to buy localy, but four times more? No way.

 

Anyway I ordered 38 kg of heat sinks now ;)

I also changed the size a litte bit. Theay are taller now (400 mm).
