    Test Bench/Open air case

    Well, I always wanted a test bench. While the Little Devil test bench would be a great choice it was a little out of my budget. So I went ahead and ordered an AeroCool StrikeX-Air

    I have had a Phoyba 200mm rad for a year and a half now that has been screaming to be used. So my plan is to try and use it on that main 200mm fan over the motherboard.

    I just bought a new 3770k that I will pair with my Z77 Mpower in my TJ11/caselabs and I have a 2600K from previous that I will pair with a cheaper 1155 mobo in the test bench.

    MSI Z77 MPower | i7 3770K | Corsair Dom Plat 16GB 1866 | Samsung 840 Pro 256 | 2 x OCZ V3 120GB | 2 x WD Black 1TB | CorsairAX1200 | Silverstone TJ11 | Caselab Pedestal | GTX 780 Lightning SLI
    EK Supremacy CPU | 2 x RX480 | MCP35X2-W | BP Z-Multi 250 | AP15's | BP Fittings | Distilled + Mayham Clear UV + Silver |

    From the reviews of the case looks like I will have to strengthen that top fan holder. It seems to sag already by itself. Oh and its not Timmys coffee just the mug. Coffee is from freshco

    Well since Daz got his custom cpu block, looks like a good time to grab one for this.

    Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD4H 2600k

    Testing ram thought I had a bad stick so I removed the ram waterblock to test 1 at a time. It turned out my new MSI Z77 MPower had a bad ram slot, doh rma time.

    H60 is temp until I grab my new waterblocks.

    Also I'm looking for ideas on a res/pump combo (no bay res). Pumps type doesn't matter. Any ideas on where to mount it?

    New pics, new camera Nikon D3200 (new to dslr photography):








    CPu power cable was not long enough.
