Doing Mobo and mosfet blocks are what will murder your flow, not adding another radiator. They're usually VERY restrictive relative to everything else in the system. You may even have some trouble using the 655 since it's not great with the high pressure of a lot of blocks, that's actually where the 355/35x tend to shine.

Your 655 will do fine even with that much restriction.

This. Rads aren't very restrictive, while NB/mobo blocks are. They're basically eye candy anyway, unless you're rocking some crazy overclock you don't need them.

I added my mobo to my loop because I actually did need it. My NB was idling at 84C in BIOS. And during gaming, the interior of my case turned into an oven pretty much. After I would quit back to the desktop, my NB would be at ~90C




EVen adding a 40mm fan didn't really help much. That NB heatsink was heating up the tubes near it as well

You will still need to add another 120 even though a 240 would be ideal, you dont want the gtx's to heat up and crash, if your going to dump the money into the computer, do it right the first time, so you're not disappointed in the end.

Alright I think I will just add another Thermochill PA 120.3 externally. Any good/cheap radiator stands out there?

It'll work but you'll find better temps with an additional rad. I'd suggest a 240mm @ the bottom.

This. Rad is enough when the temps are good enough for you.

btw, nice loop! I like your white tubing

Thanks. Alright guys I am definitely adding an external radiator. Is it a bad idea to mount a rad to the side of the case using velcro?

Yes, putting a 240 at the bottom of your 800D would be perfect.

Even just another 120 at the back of the case would be fine. My friend has a SR-1 360 + SR-1 120 that is cooling 2x5970's, mobo and CPU with great temps.

I wouldn't do it because if it falls off something bad may happen. You could mount a rad off of the back of the case.
