Spent an hour playing cable ninja. Ended up with this for now.
Side fan throwing up air is a 250mm Antec tri-color on random mode so it makes a variety of cool colors.
Lighting is done via BitFenix LED aqua strip. It is pretty friggin bright too. That was the backlight for the LCD I was working on. Was being the keyword, the IC that connects to the LCD panel fried on me so it's dead project unless I replace that board and the ribbons to the panel itself. >_<
Sorry guys, server was flipping when 2 were created and now they both seem to have deleted.
Here we go again. Sorry for that.

cheers mate. i just put together a rough build, so i didnt look too much into it, other than for the purposes of getting a rough price. that particular mobo is something im set on, for its 7 pcie slots. though do let me know if you find other board that have 7 or more pcie slots. doesnt matter if they are x1, x4, or x16, as long as the total combined slots are 7 or more.
at this stage, before i can continue, ill need to purchase some tools, and build a workbench. i have placed the order for that yesterday, so it should be delivered either later today, or tomorrow. the plywood will be assembled with hinges and caster wheels, so the workbench will be able to be folded flat and wheeled away when not in use.
so, ive started planning phases for my next computer. this will be my biggest and most expensive project to date. wall-mounted, and with more GPUs than you can poke a stick at!
so what could i possibly want to do with 10 GPUs? folding, of course! most of this rig would be for distributed computing applications, and i expect it to run up to $8000 (rough idea of parts). unless i can get a sponsor. that would be nice. expected power consumption? 4000 to 4500 watts. the equivalent to running a portable industrial heater.
if youre wondering how i could afford to throw so much money away on something like this, its because my total living expenses are about $10 a day, possibly even less. im hoping to start the base and design in a few weeks, and the computer itself in a few months.
Hey Hii, glad things are going well for you. And this project sounds like it's going to be awesome+epic; I will be watching.
Heads up in case you don't know this but Haswell E, i7-5000 series CPUs use socket 2011-v3, which is not pin-compatible with the original 2011 socket. So if you do decide on a Haswell E chip then you'll need an X99 motherboard.

eh, thats a bit of a stretch to compare the two graphics...
but yes, its homeworld.
Sep 28, 14 at 1:13pm
Because the logo looked somewhat similar in concept. Or is it something to do with Homeworld which is where your username comes from (iirc)?

that was back in sweden. thankfully im out of that frozen hellhole.
also, managed to put the other two pieces up, so all five sections are there!
it will probably be a week or two before i have any more updates. busy roster and all. i will be buying the acrylic after this time, along with a router, chamfer bit, and either a router table, or materials to build one myself.
also, why does everyone think its got anything to do with destiny? never looked into destiny, so i dont even know what its about, but the design, which is the same as the one in my avvy, has been there since i joined neo

Thought you worked in a petrol station or something. Having a Destiny wall thing made to cover it up?
i just came back from a flight, so im tired as all hell. im probably going to stick up the final two sections after some rest.

...What is your job, who do you work for?

a while back, world community grid released seven potential cures for a common childhood disease known as neuroblastoma that have gone into testing phases, based off distributed computing results.
dont forget that everything is baby steps. cures wont happen overnight. in the meantime, smaller discoveries and observations are made that may seem insignificant to us, but find another piece of the puzzle for them.
as for my savings, its not that my job pays a lot. its that my job pays for almost all of my living expenses. my base salary is 4040 AED, plus an additional 55 AED per hour of flying. im rostered for about 120 hours this month, which means about 2900 USD in total after conversion. based on all the receipts i have kept since arriving here, dividing all the money i have spent by the number of days i have lived here, my average spending is $10 a day, which equates to $300 a month, leaving me with 2600 USD of savings, coming round to roughly 3 months worth of savings to afford the computer. this doesnt even take into consideration that we get additional money to spend on layovers, so if im in, say, russia, i would get enough money to afford three meals at a restaurant for every full day i am there. i normally bring my own food, so that is extra money saved.
speaking of which, im leaving for tanzania in a little over four hours. i think im just going to stay in the hotel for the whole day, given its a malaria risk country, though, hopefully they have free wifi...or any wifi...
