    Nvidia Charity build

    Time to get the Nvidia/Intel/Crucial/Danger Den/Silverstone/Performance PCs/Smooth Creations/Out of the Box Mods charity build completed. It will be auctioned off with proceeds going for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. MUST have the build done by the end of the weekend.
    My buddy, Paul, from Nvidia asked me months ago if I would do a mod for a charity (the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society). How could I say no. At the time we both thought it would just be a modest build and might raise a little money for a good cause. Well, things sort of went beyond what we thought with all sorts of vendors helping out. Here is a list:
    Nvidia: Single PCB 295 GPU (I will have to ask who the AIB was), 3d Stereo glasses kit, Samsung 22" 3d Stereo monitor (thanks to Samsung as well)
    Danger Den: Double-wide Tower case, full water-cooling including two Black Ice SR1 360 rads, pump, GPU block with custom green top, MC-TDX block with custom green top
    Intel: 975 Extreme Edition Proc
    Crucial: Two 256 gig SSDs and 12 gigs Green DDR3 Ballistix Tracer ram
    Asus: Rampage II Gene mobo
    Silverstone: Strider 1 K PSU
    Performance PCs: ALL the accessories and custom sleeving services
    Smooth Creations: One killer paint job on case, rads, psu
    OutoftheBoxMods(me): labor

    Anyways, let's start out by checking out the case (just got it mostly assembled)
    Painted Panels:



    Assembled (will take better lit pics tomorrow)











    Got to get the waterblock installed and do some sleeving before going further.

    Isn't it cool, that even in the down economy, some companies will recognize an awesome charitable opportunity, and all of the sudden the project that was "not going to be much", turns into something like this??!

    Love it. Genuine feel good moment.... right here.

    Didn't get as much done today as I had hoped. Did paint the optical drive, sleeved some, installed water-block on GPU, installed a special water feature in the case, and did a few other things. Also tested all the hardware on one of my new test benches.

    First, my lovely test bench (just did a quick build to test and install the OS) from my buddies at Case Appeal (http://www.caseappeal.net):



    Installing the awesome Danger Den block on the single PCB 295 (Nvidia made it much easier to take the GPU apart). This block has a custom UV Green top.





    Sleeving (had to modify a few of the cables but thanks to Performance PCs for pre-sleeving some of them - if you hate sleeving consider using Performance PCs as they do good work):

    All the cables are now sleeved. Off to the gym, then when I get back time to plug it all in, fill the coolant, and fire it up.
