    If anyone is having trouble calculating how much power they need for their next build you can use this website as a guide

    The site also has a quick flow guide which can help you map out your water loop!

    Hi guys and welcome to my build log. My name is Stuart and I'm the owner of GGF. First off I'd like to thank Thermaltake for selecting me for this global invitational competition.  Now lets jump in and see the wonderful sponsors who are supporting me in my Double X Project. Just a note to add that I'm still talking with unconfirmed sponsors and will add these up later.
     

     
    Playing host to this competition. We aimed to keep everything Thermaltake as much as possible. This included the required Thermaltake gear including Case and Cooling. We also opted for Thermaltake PSU and Riing fans.
     
     

    When it comes to Motherboards and Video Cards Asus is always our number one choice. The flexibility and endless support they provide make it that much easier to build customisations.
     
     

    Having Asus on-board is only part of the process. With NVIDIA's support we wouldn't have the foundation for the video cards being used in the build.
     
     

     
    A hardcore build needs hardcore memory. Avexir makes some of the best looking memory around. They are provided a HUGE 64GB Raiden kit for this project.
     
     

    As SSDs are becoming the norm. Most people are forgetting the good old Hard Drive. We haven't forgot which is why we use hard drives in most of our builds. Including this one. WD also provide the largest range of drives for just about every purpose.
     

    ModGuru are relatively new to the scene and we're happy to have them on-board. ModGuru are helping to supply LED strips and connectors for the build.
     
     
    100% of this build is performed by me. Painting, cutting, drilling, all done in my house, either in the garage, backyard or shed. I'll be putting up a final write-up once the build is done with pictures of the tools used for my build. I feel the purpose of this project and competition is tell help close the gap between modders and beginners. I'll be showing you that you don't need thousands of dollars worth of high end equipment to do modding.

    Spy vs Spy
     

     
     

    The Following was obtained from the History section of the Spy vs Spy Headquarters.
     
    http://www.spyvsspyhq.com/history.html
     
    Simple yet meaningful is one way to describe the wordless black and white comic strip that makes up Spy vs. Spy. The cartoon created in 1960 by Antonio Prohías, depicts the antics of two distinctly different yet similar spies who try to get the best of each other with clever yet strange schemes of espionage and deception.
     

    Published in Mad magazine since 1961, Prohías began working on Spy vs. Spy in Cuban, but fled to the United States in 1960 just days before Fidel Castro took over the last Cuban free press.  When Prohías came to the United States he knew almost no English, but Mad magazine readers and editors quick accepted him and loved his work.
    Before he got the job at Mad, he worked in Queens at a clothing factory by day and drew by night in his cramped apartment.  His earlier works “Erizo,†“Oveja Negra,†“El Hombre Siniestro,†and “Tovarich†would not work in his new country where the idea of communism was not as prevalent or well taken by pleasure readers. In Cuba if you were not a supporter of Castro you were considered a spy, and this is where he got the idea.  Prohías considered himself a spy and thus the idea was born.
     
     


    Prohías submitted his rough pencil concept and design sketches to MAD’s editors on normal 8.5 x 11 paper and would latter redraw the entire carton twice the size for reproduction  in the magazine.  He would go through the comic strip with pain staking detail and make sure all edges and lines were detailed in his dark bold pen and would almost never ink over his pencil drawings. 
     

    Spy vs. Spy is now a national icon, symbolic of the Cold War representing good and evil and the struggle for equilibrium.  Prohías would stealthily sign each of his Spy vs. Spy cartoons under the title panel, in Morse code, which spelled out the words "by prohias."  This is one of the most overlooked details in his work. -••• -•-- •--• •-• --- •••• •• •- •••
     
    Antonio Prohías passed away February 24, 1998.  His masterpiece concept of the two spies battling it out lives on in the continuing work done by his successor Peter Kuper.

    The whole idea is to put two complete systems in here all cooled with one large liquid cooling system.
     

    The first shipment of parts has arrived. 2 x Core X9 Cases, 2 x Commander FX 10 port fan hub, 1 x 550w DPS G Modular PSU and 1 x 750w DPS G Modular PSU.
     

    To give you an idea of the size of the double stacked X9. On the left of this pic is the chassis from a Thermaltake A-71 Full Tower. Each Core X9 is 1 inch taller and twice as wide.
     

    Here we have One intact X9 and one completely disassembled.
     

     

     

    The Core X9 has this built in plate that can be removed from the bottom panel so you can install a massive radiator in push/pull. However this is not going to work for what I have planned. For what I want to do the entire floor has to be cut out.
     

    Remember kids always use proper safety gear when working with power tools and hazardous chemicals. It doesn't matter how careful you are. Things Happen.
     

    The bottom of the top X9 has been cut out. 
     

    Now after stacking up two empty X9 cases and lifting them both a couple times I quickly realized that once all the hardware and coolant has been added this thing is going to be extremely heavy. Therefore I am going to add casters. Each caster is rated at 150lbs.
     



    Yesss much better.
     

    The rest of the gear from Thermaltake has arrived.
     

     




    EVGA sent two gorgeous Z97 FTW boards for our project.
     

    Time to get these bad boys fired up on the test benches.
     

     
    Alright Time to get started on the prep work for our paint.
     

     
    This is what your case should look like after your preliminary sanding...Do not take it down to the bare metal.....Just take the shine off of it. it should look dusty like its been sitting there for a while.
     

     
    Two of the rads are getting prepped for paint. They are going to be painted white.
     

     
    Time to get started on cutting the Motherboard mounting plates ready for the Floating Motherboards.
     

     
    Remember kids always wear the proper safety gear when working with power tools or hazardous chemicals. We don;t wear safety gear because we are not careful. We wear it for the things we can't control. (#### Happens!)
     

     
    After the plates have been cut this is all that's left of them. Just enough to hold it in place.
     

     

     
    And there we have it a Floating Motherboard.
     
    Alright time to start shooting some paint.
     





     
    I was worried that the additional white would not work well with the light ring...Glad to see I was wrong. It really makes the light pop.
     
    While I waited for the paint to dry I got started on the sleeving.
     

    I have two PSU's to sleeve. This 750w DPS G and another 550w DPS G.
     

    Going to be using some Telios Sleeving from Mainframe Customs(http://mainframecustom.com/) Provided to me by the guys over at Sanctum Sleeving(http://sanctumsleeving.com/)
     



    The double wire didn't quite come out as well as I hoped. Still not too bad.

    One 24-pin down a hundred more wires to go.
