    Well guys, I am throwing in the towel, this will become a partial part out (I will just keep some stuff for my next desktop iteration)

    So here is what I am going to sell out of this desktop along with the respective pricing. Price includes shipping and all items will ship with the original packaging and accessories.

    2x Watercooled HIS Radeon 5870 CrossFireX (with Asus vbios on them) SOLD
    Watercooled Asus Rampage II Extreme (waterblock included) $160
    Intel Core i7 Extreme 965 SOLD
    2x 6GB Kits DDR3 1600 Dominator (all 6 sticks matching IC versions) $60 each
    EK SLI Bridge System (and adapters) SOLD
    Swiftech Apogee XT CPU Waterblock SOLD
    EVGA GeForce GTX275 SOLD
    Intel G2 120GB SSD - Retail packaging $160

    Please do not make offers on other parts as I am keeping them.

    I am selling my water-cooled desktop. It was built this January and is in outstanding condition. The system is 100% operational. I have only overclocked the cpu lightly for a couple days, otherwise the system has been left at stock speeds since it was built. Everything is in excellent shape. I put a lot of thought and time into building this system so everything looks great and is very neat. It has lived in a pet and smoke free house its entire life. This system total has cost me $3600+ to put together not counting my time.

    The parts are as follows:


    Corsair 700D with side window

    Watercooled Asus Rampage II Extreme
    Watercooled Intel Core i7 Extreme 965
    12GB DDR3 1600 Dominator (6x2GB all matching IC versions with Dominator Airflow fan - CMFAX2)
    2x Watercooled HIS Radeon 5870 CrossFireX (with Asus vbios on them)
    EVGA GeForce GTX275 for PhysX
    Intel G2 120GB SSD
    WD6400AAKS
    LG BH10LS30 Blu-Ray Burner
    Corsair AX1200

    The watercooling parts are as follows:


    XSPC RX120 Radiator

    HWLabs Black Ice GTX 360 Radiator
    2x EK FC-5870 Waterblocks with backplates
    EK SLI Bridge System (and adapters)
    Swiftech Apogee XT CPU Waterblock
    Swiftech MCW-NBMAX Northbridge Waterblock
    Swiftech MCP-355 Pump
    EK DDC X-Res Top 140mm
    Feser 45 degree G1/4 adapters (many where needed)
    Enzotech 1/2" ID 3/4" OD G1/4 Compression Fittings throughout the loop
    4+1 Scythe Gentle Typhoon AP-15 1850 rpm Fans (4 installed 1 spare)
    Lamptron Touch Fan Controller

    The whole system is tubed with Feser 1/2" ID 3/4" OD Active UV Tubing. I have only run distilled water in the loop with a couple of drops of "Dead Water" to avoid algae growth.


    There are also 2 Antec EasySATA bays installed for easy hot swapping of hard drives. The system would ship as-is with the loop drained (you will need to fill yourself upon receipt before use). The system is completely leak-free currently but it will be recommend to check everything as you fill it to be safe - this is not my liability. The system will be shipping with a fresh install of Windows 7 Professional 64-bit with all system drivers up to date. If desired I can ship along any requested accessories to parts included in the system. I have all of the original packaging and accessories for every part installed. The shipping of parts besides the system will be subject to additional shipping charges.


    I have heatware under the username scook9 and have been active in multiple forums as scook9 (XtremeSystems, [H]ardForums, Notebook Review Forums, EVGA Forums). I have ebay feedback under the name secook88. I have a feedback thread on NBR here.

    I am selling this because my girlfriend will be moving in with me and I will not have the room for it anymore unfortunately. It is a great system and deserves a new home. If you ever have any problem with it feel free to contact me and I will offer assistance the best I can.

    This will be shipping from Northern Virginia (USA) via UPS Ground and insured. If other shipping preferences exist we can arrange that. I am only shipping this to the 50 states of the USA (sorry international people, this is just too expensive to worry about overseas shipping).

    For payment I will accept USPS Money Order and Certified Check prior to shipment. If you are close enough to meet in person cash is also accepted. I will provide a receipt if this is done. PayPal will be accepted at my discretion depending on the member.

    I am asking for $2100 USD for the desktop with free shipping. If additional accessories are requested there will be an additional shipping charge to be determined at that time. I can downgrade parts if needed to help you with pricing!

    Please feel free to make me an offer but be considerate - low balling will only waste both of our time.

    Sorry for the off-topic question but I'm running xfire 5870 cards as well on my gaming desktop. I realize this likely isn't the place for my question. Did you notice any notable game improvements with the nVidia card handling PhysX? I've been considering making the same move with mine for some time now. Thanks for any info you care to share and good luck with your sale on a very nice system.

    I added it because I play alot of Unreal Tournament 3 which utilizes PhysX. When I have hardware PhysX enabled without the GTX 275 the graphics were choppy and annoying but everything is butter smooth now that I have the GTX 275 in there handling the PhysX :D

    It made smoke and particle effects look alot better imho

    Free bump for an awesome desktop. I love it. I build alot of desktops for my business, but never one with a separate GPU for PhysX. Never crossed my mind.
