    SR-2 STACKER - WINNER of Coolermaster 2011 Mod Comp



    I know its been way too long and these damn 840's have been breeding

    Some serious cooling needed for this EVGA SR-2 board and although the 840 is a pretty big case it was obviously going to be to small for 3 loops so lets get "stacking"

    Anyway, i was looking at my separates under the TV and liked how they stacked with the round silver feet showing in between so decided to do something similar with the two 840's and make a stacked rad box to fit on top.

    I'm thinking a couple of EK 480 radiators up top - one for the CPU's and one for the full board block and and a couple of MIP's RAM Freezers.

    I'm removing the hard drive caddy from the main 840 and will be mounting two EK 240's there for the graphics cards.

    So, i did a bit of a crude mock up with bits of chewing gum just to see how things look

    MINI 840 anyone

    System Spec:
    Coolermaster ATCs 840 Chassis x2
    Intel X5650's
    EVGA SR-2 Motherboard
    12GB Crucial RAM
    SSD's TBA
    PSU TBA

    Watercooling Spec:
    All TBA

    Is that how it's gonna stay? Or are you going to merge them?

    I definitely like the idea of your mini 840. I'll be interested to see how this build turns out.

    Cheers guys......long way to go yet but you get the idea

    BIG thanks to Crazy_V shipping me a brand new SR-2 board over and going above and beyond with updates, even though she's had her own issues to deal with.

    I got to hold one of the early samples at CeBIT in March but i forgot how big they actually are but none the less it, what a fantastic piece of kit.

    Anyway couldn't resist sticking a few dual PCB 295's in there just to see how it looked

    ......blocks all ordered

    Looking good. Yeah that thing is really huge, but the good part is that you still got space for one more GTX 295 on that monster

    I settled with one GTX 295 on SR-2, tho.

    First thought when I saw the picture....."You're missing one!"

    But it probably wouldn't fit in the case right?

    so are those GPU's going to stay on the final build? because you can't do a 6-way SLI with gtx295's. unless you're like me and have 3 gtx295's in there without SLI just for crunching/folding purposes

    Hey coolmiester, how much mod do you need to fit the SR-2 in ATC 840? Do you have a shot of the MB inside the case?

    @miahallen
    You are right, 4 double-slot GPU won't fit in a ATC 840, but it would be possible in the right case. A couple of 10-slot case are out there already.

    At this point, i have absolutely no idea what cards i'll be using and just added the 295's to see what it looked like

    Well i finished off fabricating the rad box and got it riveted back together so decided to test fit one of the 480 rads which fit perfect so all the measuring paid off.

    The whole top will be replaced with a 6mm thick piece of aluminium with a vent that will match both sides of the box but more on that later - just added the original top to see how things were looking and i'm well chuffed.

    And finally, i couldn't resist a photo next to the mini H20 Cosmos

    hahaha looks sick, made a little radbox! is it gonna stay on top or ?

    Another thing I find funny is AMD/Intel would snipe any of our Moms on a grocery run if it meant good quarterly results, and you are forever whining about what feser did?

    Cheers guys - yeah it will be staying on top as more an extension to the 840.

    Nothing to see really but couldn't resist firing this thing up on the table

    I didn't think i had a PSU that would work but found a new Coolermaster Silent Pro M 1000w which has 2x CPU 12v 4+4 Pin and 6x PCIe 6+2 Pin and works a treat though not tried any 295's yet but booted and loaded W7 on a 74GB Raptor with a 285 and all seems well.

    Time to play
