    Well my sponsored display system is complete. All final components are in and thought I would share :) Huge thanks to all the sponsors that were involved and will enjoy showing this off at events around AU.

    Main specs are:

    Asus Maximus VI Formula
    i5 4670k
    Cooler Master HAF Stacker
    Cooler Master v1200 Platinum
    Cooler Maser Nepton 140L
    Asus ROG Poseidon GTX 780 x2
    Kingston Hyper X 8GB 2133mhz
    Kingston Hyper X 3k 120GB SSD x2

    Before people starting mentioning "why the AIO" it was a requirement from CM to have this. As it the time it was fresh off the press and needed to be display.

    I must say for a display rig. It is handy having no priority gear on water. Means I can just turn the pump off at any time and the system will keep going. It really comes in handy for reviews etc on different components :) But if this was a full 24/7 primary rig it would be different.

    And as this is a sponsored build I have to cover the cost of everything else which does add up to quite a lot. This is a display build for my events and other events. It is not my primary build and is rarely used at home. Not worth putting in the extra for the cooling which isn't needed. Which is why the front bay pump/res is in there.

    Also the bottom HDDs are not connected up. They are there for display purpose to show people how this case can be utilised.

    Looks great, having the cpu under a AIO is pretty smart when you think about it, lets you get great temps on the cards and chipsets without going stupid with the amount of radiators, i reckon it neatens the build right up to.

    Nice work Stuey.


    I would be rather worried about the system being so tall with such a small foot-print.

    Oh man...you should have tagged NSFW for this computer porn. :)

    Looks so good, didn't know you could take the front HDD compartment out of the 935 stacker.
