Intel LGA2011 -Version 1- with Asus RIVE

After successful selling all of the parts in my last build I embarked on a new adventure with Intel latest chipset, X79. This was my first actual planned out build. The specs were as followed:

  • Intel 2011 3930K
  • Asus Rampage IV Extreme
  • G.Skill 4x4GB 2133Mhz
  • Sapphire 7970
  • Syrillian Custom Bench
  • 3x XSPC EX 360s
  • Lamptron FC-2
  • Koolance CPU 370
  • Koolance RIVE Chipset Block
  • Koolance 7970 Block
  • Dell 3007FPW-HC
  • 2x Dell 2405FPW
  • Silverstone ST1500W

This was a really fun build, I learned a lot from putting it together. It was done in honor of a forum buddy, Syrillian. He built custom benches and I was lucky enough to get ahold of one. He passed away from cancer this recent fall and this build was done as a dedicated folding@home rig. However I ended up selling all of the main components in order to build a 48 core server which was a lot more effective.
