Description

It was the first time I was building a computer with a full watercooling loop.
Not every parts are into the list.
Both CPU are engineering sample.

This workstation is mainly used for photography, video editing and video games.

Ummm...I don't know if it will be able to handle the games (sarcasm applied of course). Wow. Nice!

wow, it's very pretty! The matching of the coolant and the PSU cables is spot on! +1!

Don't think I've seen a full custom loop dual Xeon build before. It looks very clean.

Aren't engineering samples illegal to buy? Cause I remember looking into getting one and did a bit of research on them and found that out. Not that a cop is going to walking into your house and pop off your CPU coolers and look at what CPU you have lol. Really nice build though. Ok love xeons.

Why are they illegal to purchase? Serious question here.

IIRC there's nothing wrong with buying them, totally legal. You're just not supposed to be able to buy them because someone isn't supposed to be selling them in the first place.

They are intels property. It might not be illegal to buy one but it's definitely illegal to sell them. One guy got arrested on eBay for selling them. I was thinking of buying one myself but the stuff I read turned me away. The chances of getting in trouble for owning one is probably pretty slim but I'd rather me safe than sorry.

Honestly, this is the most interesting part list I've seen in a while. While I'm not a fan of soft lines for water cooling, I do appreciate the color selection and I think it looks amazing with the dual CPUs. Great job, this is indeed "Le Grand Bleu" - or maybe better "L'Énorme Bleu" xD

Now that's an impressive and probably necessary custom loop build. +1

Hey Man,

Can I ask where you find OEM/Tray CPU's as I cannot find them anywhere!

Cause I am not ready to jump to those retail prices lol

I found them on Ebay. You have to write something like "Xeon V3 ES".
