Very nice setup, I have a question as to how you have the RP452x2 setup. I have the rev 1.3 and I cant get my system to work. Are you planning on using the loopback kit? if so are you using the included acrylic piece and are you removing the long plug? I will definitely want to know what trick you used to get your system to bleed properly.

Lastly for the 580gtx. Mine came with a diagram that showed the 6 pin power connector lacking the top center pin. All my pci-e cables have the full 6 pin setup, and the only adapter my card supplied was a molex adapter with the proper pin heading. Did you have the same diagram I wonder?

I'm keeping the long plug to split the reservior in half, but doing series pumps with alternate combined loops like Martin's image below.

As for the GTX 580 6 pin plug, in researching... I've been reading people using the 6+2 PCI-E cable that comes with the Corsair AX1200... and they leave the +2 dangling. Since I sleeved my PCI-E cables, I just left the +2 wires out of the connector that using for the 6 pin header... to keep my cable management clean. Yes, I do have the same diagram in my GTX 580 manual, but it seems like a lot of people still uses the PCI-E cables that come with the Corsair PSU.

I can't help but think your wife must be incredibly understanding. That being said, I have some serious respect considering this is your first build and you are simply leaping all out into water cooling.

Something I always thought about - I don't like having the graphics cards in series. I've never done a full WC loop (I personally find them incredibly more expensive than what they're worth) but if I did do one I'd have the graphics cards get the same cool water at the same time -- meaning, have the tubing split into two (via a Y adapter?), enter the cards, come out, and join back together via a Y adapter, so that the second card isn't stuck with getting the first card's heat. Does that make sense?

Just something I thought of smile.gif. If I ever did a WC loop, I'd make it fully redundant with 3 loops redface.gif.

Instead of a y adapater, just run the graphic card's cooling setup in parallel?
