hmmm im gone take the optical drive out and leave the top 5.25 empty I only need the drive once a month maybe, for those times i can always open the case and plug it in directly to the mb if it goes for the drive ive got no issues atm but if its gone start acting up ill get rid of it

what do you think about the build itself?

to be honest, if your going a single loop, id skip the bay res, and go tube res with a dual pump top.

Mount the tube res next to the motherboard .
Have the pump hard mounted to the tube res.
And then go from there..

Skip the bay res in entirely... i mean yeah.. i love them..
But... for a first build, a tube res = less headaches.

ok guys, im about to pull the trigger and order all the parts for this build before I do though i wanted to check two thing, first what do you think about swapping the 800d for Xigmatek Elysium? I really cant mod stuff and i think the later would fit a 480 rad up top and a 360 on the bottom. Second thing is the loop it self, im gone go with a single loop for the time being and swap to a double one if need be. What do you think about going, pumps/res to rx480 (rx360 if 480 wont fit) to cpu block, to rx120 to gpu blocks, to rx 360 (rx240 if 360 wont fit) and back to the pumps/res?

thanks Robby, but its not as much the budget as size+wife it cant be much bigger then the 800d
post #37 of 38
I think the elysium would be better then the 800d for rad space, I think it's a 360 top and a 480 bottom this may help
