    [Build Log] Project Abyss



    Sponsored By



    This is my first massive build, I am constructing a new desk to house 2 separate computers, one for Gaming and the other as a small home server. the desk itself will house 2 computers one on either side of the desk and in the middle all the HDD's from both computers. On display will also feature water-cooling reservoirs and multiple temperature LCD's. The Water cooling of the rig will Chanel down under the desk into 2 large radiators that will be housed inside a tiny fridge to keep the water temps down around 0-10 degrees Celsius.

    Rig 1 (gaming)
    Mobo: ASUS Rampage IV
    CPU: Intel Core i7 3820
    Ram: undecided will be either corsair or g.skill
    PSU: OCZ fatal1ty 750W
    GPU: 1x Gainward GTX680
    HDD: 2x Samsung 840pro 256gb SSD running of a raid card
    HDD: WD 2tb Green

    Rig 2 (Media Server)
    Mobo: ASUS Sabertooth x58

    CPU: Intel Core i7 930
    Ram: G.Skill Ripjaws 12gb @1600mhz
    PSU: Thermaltake 450W
    GPU: EVGA GTX 550ti
    HDD: Corsair Force 60GB SSD
    HDD: 2x WD 3TB Green
    HDD: 1x Hitachi 2TB
    HDD: 1x WD 1TB Green

    so here is the start of the desk and some of the parts that have arrived will keep you updated as i work on it.

    Quick little update

    Finally found some time to get into the city to pick up the rest of the parts on order.
    I have decided that since i wont be going all out with 3 or 4 GPU's in sli that there was no real
    need to get a the ASUS Rampage IV Extreme so i have chosen the Formula motherboard. I'm hoping
    over the next week or so i will have the rest of the motherboard slots cut and ready to put the
    top coats of paint on.

    few quick photos bellow

    One of the last parcels to arive








    The 2nd layer of Undercoat on finally





    and the rest of the hardware still need to get in another Samsung 840Pro 256Gb Drive








    And this is just about everything i need just have to get my arse into gear and get some
    glass cut and finish the desk


    Hopefully end of the work week will post some more

    Yeah im an aussie not too obvious ive been using the x58 set up for the last few years and figured why not give the x79 a try i know its dated now but all new parts should get at least 3-4 years good use out of it. whats your scratch build going to be?
