Thnx spend all day putting it together sadly my x99 classified and intel 6960x did not come yet so i had to put my x79 in it for now

The 2 gtx 980's will be replaced by 4 980 TI's when they show up and teh new mainboard is gonna get 64 or 128 gigs of ram ...dunno yet if i should drop 1500$ on ram if i can get a titan z for it

The current mainboard has 64 gigs on it as well

The first 1600 t2 PSU that i got on Sunday blew up in my face as soon as i plugged it in so i ordered another one which came today

gotta send the old one back to evga .

They where absolutely cool about it and gave me a free advanced rma with return shipping label so as soon as the new one shows i send the old one back

I love EVGA customer service they never let me down ...I called em once at 3am with a 580 that caught fire

Still it does look nice, Mine I'll be starting on in or around Jan 1st, right now is a central gas heater repair by an electrician(a new breaker, this is something I can not do, I can't stand long enough) and property taxes.

The 1050w psu needs a new 24 pin connector, I tried to repair that and I only made it worse.

The Gigabyte 590 was bought dead, so most likely a mosfet(s) is(are) blown and need to be replaced, if it's not repairable, then it's only $50(what I paid for the 590) plus a minimal cost of $31(diagnostic fee I'd guess), then I'd need to find a working 590 or just get a 690, since Koolance blocks for the 590 and the 690 have identical water port locations, I know this cause I asked Koolance.

Still, I'm going to try, a 690 with a Koolance block can be $375 total, the 590's all have Koolance blocks.

I have three good 590 cards and four Koolance 590 v1.1 water blocks, a 690 would be a substitute, since 590 cards are hard to find now, remember these are all dual gpu cards, that's 16 wu's at a time.
