And staining doesn't matter that much as long as you don't want to change the colour lol

It looks good, I don't see any problems. How long did it take you to bleed with the res at the bottom of your loop?

No need to spend money on RAM and NB waterblocks. You'll be better off spending that money on better components (PC and watercooling). If you are using 200 CFM fans you can use a Black Ice GTX 120 for your next radiator.

The only reason im going through so much trouble to build this is cuz i will be throwing it in my next system...8 Core Bulldozer

i wont NEED the RAM block but it'd be nice to have. And as far as the NB...i definately need it, even now my temps on NB are 70C idle....

and the BI GTX 120 is exactly what i was looking at

Do you have an XSPC pump? If you are going to add that many blocks you might want to upgrade your pump to a MCP355 or MCP655. The XSPC should be fine for a CPU/NB loop but once you add the GPUs, RAM, and the restrictive GTX it would be time for an upgrade.

i will be running the GTX on a seperate loop but i will be using the same res. just gunna put another two holes in it and have an additional external (as in not in the resivoir) pump.
If i had more room i'd get another res and put it in HDD bay but i wont once i get the 120/140 and an additional pump.

edit: i will prolly be running the MB block through the second loop with the GTXs

You might want to just run the pumps in series as the water will be mixing in the res anyways. Have the outlet from the res/pump go into the inlet of the external pump. Multiple loops isn't the best solution with amount of rad your working with.

Another solution is to buy an XSPC res that can take the new pump and sell the pump/res you have now. It would make your loop less complicated and you won't have to upgrade later on. Here is a couple of bay reservoirs that can take a pump:

XSPC MCP655 Res

how powerful is the pump you're talking about?
what's the LPH or GPH?
post #19 of 26
Here are the different pumps that fit in one of those reservoirs:

MCP355
MCP655-B (Basically the regular one stuck on 4, 5 being the highest speed)
MCP35X (Speed is controllable through PWM)
MCP655 (Has a 'knob' on the back to control speed 1-5)

which do you recommend for high flow?
