I also used a ton of Enzotech fittings on my 800D and they are top quality just like Bitspower.
I look foward to more updates.
i love modding things to make them my own but i would love the day when i find out i wont need to cut anything up to make it work for me! enzotech's stuff is great! glad we agree

thanks man, i thought the mid panel was pretty slick but i love that i cut out holes for the fans
that did it for me lolUPDATE - 8/20/12
okay so this log is in desperate need of an update so i will back track a bit so you can actually SEE some progress be made.
about a month ago this beauty showed up on my doorstep
i had a couple days to wait for the waterblock so since i had received the koolance drain the same day as the 7970 i decided to install that along with the 7970 and see how it par'd up with the dual 460's
and the drain plug
realizing that i should have definitely included a more solid drain solution than just throwing one in the back of the case was hard on me because of all the work i put into prepping this thing
but i might redo it a bit when i parts i had currently ordered come in.
i thought since it was just a video card change i didnt really need to mess up the loop that much, so thats why i just threw the drain port in the back.
then the awesome sauce waterblock came in along with the backplate.
gpu went from this:
it looks SOOO GOOD.
infinitely happy with my choice of block and backplate.
here it is installed:
(camera doesnt do the leds justice)
and my current gaming setup:
threw some sleeved extensions in there to make it look better than the solid black wiring
last week i ordered what i think will be the last of the build parts for this rig, watercooling wise.
xspc ram blocks
120mm sr1 radiator
120mm enermax tb silence fan
mayhems emerald green dye
and some more sleeved cables to make it look pretty
let me know what you guys think!
