Hello everyone, sorry for the delay! due to out of stock issues I haven't been able to get my hands on a CPU until now. but it has finally arrived! Once I recieve the new fans, radiator and a few other parts I can commence the modding. as I need the exact measurements for the hardware to start. That should be in the next update. Until then you may enjoy some pictures of the build in its current state.
I've some cpu to resell, left from a very tight binning done for extreme overclock purpose. The idea is reselling left cpu offering some services with them, since the cpu are basicaly new, i'll try to offer a good deal for a fear price.
For give you an idea of the difference you can see the screenshoot here: -BEFORE DELID
HARDWARE INVOLVED: -Motherboard: Z170m OC FORMULA -Cooling: Raijinteck Triton 3x120 AiO -Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws V 3600mhz xmp -Videocard: Nvidia GT 710 -TIM: Thermal Grizzly Konductonaut between IHS and AiO
After Delid process, the cpu will be tested under stress for 30 minutes with prime95 in 1344k mode, for give to each cpu the proper value (binning):
CPU Type D = 4900Mhz CPU/4200Mhz CACHE @ 1,350V or less CPU Type C = 5000Mhz CPU/4200Mhz CACHE @ 1,375V or less CPU Type B = 5100Mhz CPU/4200Mhz CACHE @ 1,400V or less CPU Type A = 5200Mhz CPU/4200Mhz CACHe @ 1,450V or less
For each cpu (except type D cpu) i'll test also the possibility to run 5000Mhz CPU/5000Mhz CACHE/ RAM XMP 3600Mhz, still stress under prime95 1344k for 30 minutes.
The price cover the shipping cost for Italy, within EU will be 10€ more to add at cpu price.
CPU is BOX version, 3 years direct waranty from Intel. I'll don't take care of your RMA if necesary. As waranty of the performance i'll give you a screenshot taken during the test with cpu ID on it. Still i can't waranty you can run on your system with same voltage as on my system. Frequencies achieved can be ±100MHz.
-i7 7700k - CPU TYPE D - 380€ / Availability: 24/01/17 -i7 7700k - CPU TYPE C - 395€ / Availability: 24/01/17 -i7 7700k - CPU TYPE B - 405€ / Availability: 24/01/17 -i7 7700k - CPU TYPE A - 420€ / Availability: 24/01/17
Gold rush is an exotic project with 24ct gold plated fittings, Backplate, and whatever else i can get my filthy paws on The case it's self will be, cut up, and resprayed in a white/gold flip paint. Featuring a parallel loop and a gold mine on the shroud, this project will be a show stopper.
Special Thank You
I'd like to take this moment to thank some of the greatest people who made this whole project possible.
From ASUS ROG ASUS Maximus IX Formula Z270 Motherboard ASUS Strix GTX 1070 Graphics card
From Cablemod (Can't discuss at this time)
From KLEVV (Can't discuss at this time)
Other parts Intel Core i7 7700K
i've never been very good at 3D modeling software, so i do my best in words to describe the mess in the image lol.
Now a few things to point out. The loop under the GPU will no longer be zig zagged, it will be a straight 45 degree angle from GPU to Shroud. Around the base of the reservoir and where the fittings meet the shroud, there will be pyrite fools gold set around them, like gold is forming around a hot chamber. The name ''gold Rush'' will be cut from the shroud, and filled with pyrite (Fools gold) for a more authentic look.
Sponsor logo's on the front will be made from real 24ct gold leaf. The gold triangles you see on the case will be cut outs, and meshed for looks and ventilation. The mesh will be gold too.
Time Frame I'm guessing at 4 weeks, as this is the biggest project i've undertaken yet and by all means the toughest work yet.
Media Over the next 4 weeks i'll be doing a VLOG of the build progress, out on the road, at home, wherever i need to go, be sure it'll be on video. i expect 4 episodes 1 for each week.
Don't fret, as pictures will be uploaded as i go for the project logs and social media.
All parts are on route to me as i type this, so expect work to begin in just a few days.
