with the setup pictured i dont think i ever went over 55 on the cpu at 3.8ghz, the new setup isnt complete and I also plan on adding the gpu into the loop. three rads 360,240,120 should be more than enough for a 4 plus ghz overclock on the cpu and hopefully hit 1ghz on the gpu, and be silent at the same time.

Sorry for the lack of updates here's a crappy cell phone shot of what I've done.

Acrylic floor
Drain setup
240mm rad mounted up front
Will take some better shots tonight with the dslr, just got a new lense so I'm excited lol.



Running the tubing was tricky up front because I still need two drive bays, although I'm thinking of using an external dvd drive and mount the hdd sideways beside the front radiator.

The
Any opinions greatly apreciated.

Looking good man, what lens did you get? I wanna see some glamor shots

I'd like to get some shots of the acrylic floor, how did you secure it to the case?

It looks like you have the 240 rad going to the top rad which has the inlets towards the front of the case. Seeing as how the inlets for the 240 only take up one drive bay I would suggest to re-arrange your loop so 1. reverse the top rad so the inlets are at the rear of the case instead of the front, and 2. have the tubing for the front 240 rad lay parallel to the floor of the case so it only takes up that bottom drive bay (does that make sense?)

That should free up some drive space.
