Absolutely amazing!

If Global worming will rising and whole world sink under water i will consider purchase this rig.

By the way, How much does it cost?

Looks really nice. When are you going to dip those 680's in it?

ok here is the current build, prices have dropped since i purchased most/all of these items. i think my grand total is around 3500 USD. and the oil and case alone were about a grand.

AMD FX-8150 Zambezi 3.6GHz Socket AM3+ 125W Eight-Core Desktop Processor OC'd to 4.4 GHz

MSI R6950 Twin Frozr III PE/OC Radeon HD 6950 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 Crossfired x2 and i have them both at GPU clock 900 MHz and Memory clock 1325 MHz

XION AXP-1000K14XE 1000W ATX SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80+ Bronze Modular Power Supply

CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) I got the low profile version so it would fit under my Phanteks PH-TC14PE_BK 140mm UFB (Updraft Floating Balance) CPU Cooler, i have that because this was a air cooled rig before i submerged it.

ASUS SABERTOOTH 990FX R2.0 AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

Dual 1920x1080 Acer Monitors at 75 Hz

G510 Logitech Keyboard and a Razer Naga Mouse.

Samsung 120 Gb SSD

WD 3 TB 7200 RPM Drive

WD 1 TB 7200 RPM Drive

Moderator : i have run in to a small problem with the 680's. them being 3 slots big and this case only having 7 slots along with the way the Sabretooth 990 FX by Asus PCIe slots are set up, I d'ont think I'll be able to get them to fit...

Stay with Windows 7. Drivers aren´t that great with Windows 8 yet.

You can still use the Win 8 upgrade package to do a fresh install - you don't need to do the actual upgrade from Win7.

I'm loving 8. Starts in seconds and stable as hell. Never had one problem with it.

Btw, awesome build, dude.

So what are your temperatures like and how noisy are the fans in the mineral oil, presumably it's very cool and quiet?

very cool. CPU idle sits at around 40 C. the outside GPU (Farthest from the CPU) also sits around 40.  The inside GPU rests at 45. Because oil doesn't change temperature fast, it takes about 8-12 hours of full load testing all components (CPU, Memory,Graphics) to reach peak. It pulls about 850 watts under load. the CPU peaks at 51 and the inside GPU 57.  the outside GPU is usually 5-8 degrees cooler then the inside.  if i just run the pump for the radiator and all the inside fans (you can't them so i keep them on always for visual) it sounds as loud as a quiet fish aquarium (very quiet rumble from pump).  If i run the radiator fans (9 120mm single speeds) then its pretty loud.  I've heard of guys buying dual speed or 3 speed fans and on the lowest setting it is quiet but those fans are expensive when your buying 9.
