    Seeing as we're all a bit bored waiting for the case to come home, here's some more hardware:

    Tease mode activated

    A box arrived



    You said flap



    The largest usb flash drives known to man and some awesome sauce:



    Sometimes the front view is better than the back:



    Opening a door:



    Socket 2011 is bigger than I thought:



    Inside the box is two more boxes:



    - Curiously only a 2x CFX cable, but yet 2/3/4x SLI cables
    - The sata 6gbps cables are black with partly white connectors as opposed to full black for the rest of the cables.
    - The OC key that plugs inline with your monitor doesn't support high res monitors - bit of a fail there Asus. Shouldn't affect me as I can use the USB cable from my other rig anyway
    - It would be nice if the back of the backplate was also black rather than the shiny tin foil like other boards



    And the last tease for the night:

    Had some time for another photo session seeing as the cpu doesn't get here for a few days:

    Took the board out:





    Took the ram out, seems to be the fastest I've seen at 1.5V with 4GB sticks.



    Installed the ram, note that the polarity is reversed on each side, which makes sense if they flipped the pinout on the chip.



    The paint job on the fins wasn't that even - some sticks definitely got more coverage:



    Time to take off the heatsink in preperation for the EK full cover block:



    Only the VRM area had thermal pads on the back and front of the heatsink:



    Looks like Asus have moved away from that horrible yellow TIM they had on the R3E:



    The VRM area with heatsink removed:

    Chip arrived, motherboard and ram blocks don't come until tomorrow though.

    SSD is actually for my wife's rig. I don't have an ssd on my gaming rig. I only use it for games so I wouldn't see that much benefit from a boot drive. I use my workstation for web browsing etc as it's on all the time. I'd need a 512gb drive or so to cover my games, so I'm waiting for prices to come down more



    Batch on the 3930K is 3152B448, we'll see how it clocks soon

    Thanks dude - you can get em from caselabs.net, this case isn't in the webstore yet but if you call Jim he can hook you up. They have a forum on overclock.net where you can see more photos etc

    Another update:


    Suddenly a wild EK party!



    Nickel plexi because I want to run some red dye (on special occasions only for all you dye haters out there)



    Finished cleaning the TIM off the south bridge only to find a piece of tin foil with more TIM underneath. Weird.



    Pretty easy to install when the block is in two parts, the single piece blocks are much harder:



    VRM area:



    Full board:



    and one more:



    That's all for now

    No comments? ROG peeps don't like water? Then you may not like this


    With ram blocks, the fittings aren't the final ones, just more for planning. I'm working with Monsoon free to see if something special will make the tube routing super clean





    the ram blocks remind me of battersea power station:



    Now adding in the gpu makes it look ugly and busy The copper and green pcb really don't match. I called a nickel plating company to get a quote on plating both copper GPU blocks and it was $175 for both! So that's not going to happen. I may switch to the other acetal/copper block and paint the edge of the copper silver. I have another idea for the PCB



    Much better with the gpu off again
