This is a mod that is currently about 85% done. I am waiting on some vendors to ship me some last minute changes, but I would still like to share this with the Zoo. Basically this is my mod that I'm exiting the market with. Build something that I will not have to upgrade much in the future, and something that will be a pleasure of building, as it is my last. I love the simplistic style of Lian Li's so much. I have used LL all the way back to Citrus. This build is only possible due to someone commissioning me to build another of my Fire PC for them. Modding for me has gone through a lot of waves. From the ups and downs of modding intensity to the schemes themselves. So far this mod includes the following. Lian Li v1200 Plus Asus Z9PE-D8 Dual Intel Xeon E5-2650 8C/16T 2.0/2,9ghz Crucial Ballistix Tactical Tracer DDR3 1600 OB Crucial M4 64GB SSD Kingston HyperX 3X 120GB SSD 8tb of Hard Drive Storage Cooler Master Silent Hybrid Pro 850w MSI Radeon HD 7870 Hawk Edition Cooler Master TPC-812 Gentle Typhoon AP-15 x2 Gentle Typhoon AP-29 Cooler Master Blademaster x3 Scythe Server Kaze Controller MDPC-X Sleeving MNPCTech 120mm Fan Bezel Bitspower 360 Radguard And the pics. Serene Teardown Mainly the existing cooling and some cables. the old fx 8150 and UD5. this already has a new home. messy modular cables. need to clean those up mmm some lian li brushed awesomeness CM excalibur fans. these actually push a nice amount of air. this is my TC 6870. cannot up the voltage so it stays right at 1000mhz core. around 8000ppd the empty chassis. the mobo will fit exactly right on that tray. i will be adding a new midplate and other metal touches. old modding at its finest. Holes cut for something i never finished.... Mobo should be here tomorrow is UPS doesnt screw up, and then i can get the case all ready.
It may not seem like such a big deal that Intel's CPU roadmap has been leaked, but this time it is a bit more important... it may be showing us the end of socketed, upgradeable, customizable CPU's. Haswell is slated to be the last chip on the LGA (land grid array) style socket, and the following Bradwell processors are looking to move to BGA (ball grid array), soldered straight on the board. If this happens, it would be the beginning of the end for swappable CPU's. It's also possible that they will continue socketed CPU's in parallel with their BGA chips. Everything is speculation at this point. Source: http://www.extremetech.com/computing/141443-leaked-intel-roadmap-shows-the-end-of-socketed-cpus-the-end-of-upgradable-pc
