Finally finished mounting all 5 GPU blocks. Just waiting on the racks to arrive. Time to flex some of the hard work.

Now I know why it takes so long for them to make a block for my 3090, they've been busy making all those parts for you! :classic_laugh:

But it's looking really good, can't wait for the next update!

Ha! Doubt it, I literally had to blow some dust off of them when they arrived. I don't think there has been a demand for 980Ti blocks in quite some time.

Accepted ! Not sure how far I will be able to push mine as they will be on air, but we will see.

One of the 3 cases came in last night. This case will replace the open air rig housing the air cooled Teslas. I got busy using the trim on all the razor sharp edges, I must say it makes a world of difference. The case did not come with any feet, so I drilled into it and will be recycling the feet from the Meshify C that I saved. They are a perfect height, though I had to dremel each of them to get a  little bump to allow them to be flush.

I have some extra rubber feet that has a screw in the middle from replacing the ones on my couch if those don't work. They're adjustable. I leveled my gpu tray out with them.

That's a nice windtunnel you have there, I bet the Tesla's will love those 5 fans blowing right into their intake fan :classic_biggrin:

For sure. And over the next few years, it will make a great open air WC chassis as I find newer cards and phase out the Teslas.

...at first, I thought I was looking at an older BMW M5 V10 block 😂

Ha! Yea I can see that, a V10 block would be a great WC chassis idea. Seriously though, I LOVE the trim from https://www.mnpctech.com/products/u-channel-rubber-trim

 

I love it so much, I bought another 50 ft of small and 50 ft of wide trim. Going to use the hell out of it.

Excited, the mountain mods case should be here courtesy of Fedex tomorrow and I will finally have everything I need to build. Got the feet installed and they work out great, it's nice being able to recycle salvaged parts. Got the I/O plates installed on the Tesla's, they are all ready to install. Figuring maybe next weekend will be the time as I have my daughter this weekend.

Well looky what just came. For some reason, I swore I ordered black. But oh well. We will see how this monster looks with pedestal. This case is HUGE. There are so many configs for water cooling.

That is massive, what are the dimensions? 

And I thought the other case was a windtunnel, when fully rigged up with fans this thing will blow the caps from the motherboard :classic_laugh:

So far so good. The dual 7" screens fit perfect, I couldn't figure out how I was going to secure them, luckily I don't have to. I will decide whether or not to fill that gap at the top, will involve measuring and cutting some of the aluminum sheets I have.

That is looking great.  I didn't know that MM was still making cases.  I sold my MM case more than a decade ago.  It is awesome to see an OG enthusiast company still around. 

 

Now you've got me configuring a custom case for my server. lol

Interestingly enough, this is my first soft tube build, I started with hardline. I must say my OCD hates it, but my practical side loves having the QDC's. 

 

05/03/21 Change Log:

 

- 7 GPU's total; 5 Tesla M40's, 1 Quadro 4000, 1 GT710. 

 

- 2x1000w Super Flower Titanium PSU's mounted.

- AC D5 with BP 100ml res & Swiftech D5/EK topper mounted.

- Pump out temp 5 micron filter added.

- GPU tube run completed.

- Fans mounted to 2xAcool ST30's, 1 Acool XT45 360 rads. 

- Quadro 4000 position changed to accommodate res, 2x 3 ft HDMI and HDMI to DP converters arrived. The Q4k will be driving the 2 screens on the front of the case.

I thought this case was huge, however It will be VERY full by the time I'm done with it. Stay tuned. More work coming this weekend. I plan to get the loop together for air leak testing prior to wiring anything.

I plan to get the loop together for air leak testing prior to wiring anything.  This may have been put elsewhere but I assume the screens are for stat monitoring ? If so will you use something like AIDA64's sensor panel ?

 

Jealous ! Looking awesome man, love the case, certainly affords for some great cooling and configuration.

Is the Quadro 4000 also for F@H?

That's always the same, even with the workstation build I'm doing now :classic_laugh:
