A while back now I posted that I was mid build of a new machine to replace my aged dual xeon(northwood core).

Specs are final, last orders have been placed.

For the Hardware I settled on the following :

  • Intel Core I7 950
  • EVGA X58 LE
  • 12gb OCZ 1600Mhz DDR3
  • EVGA  Nvidia 285 Super Clocked
  • Aeca ARC-1222 8 port SAS card
  • 4x 1tb WD RE3 SATA2 HDD
  • Pioneer Blue Ray Writer BDR-203BK
  • Logitech Cordless Desktop MX5500 Revolution
  • Zalman ZM850-HP 850W (custom sleeving)
  • Zalman Multi Fan Controller Plus Black
  • CoolerMaster Cosmos S (custom pain job)

All cable and PSU have been sleeved with red sleeve. So much for warranty!

Heres the detail of the H20 Kit I've put together :

  • Laing-DDC 3.2 Pump
  • XSPC Laing DDC Top
  • EK-FC285 GTX v2.0
  • RX360 Radiator-Triple, Black
  • HeatKiller 3.0 LT ,I7 mount
  • Alpha Cool 10mm OD tube
  • Bitspower black compression fittings

You can see pics of the progress here. I will upload some more of finished sleeving of the PSU and other cables.

Final build should take place within the next 3 weeks.
