It was fun working on my 800D build, so like looking at 800D build threads. Make me want to more mods on my case. Good luck on your build. Can't wait to see updates.

I think that much rad is overkill for just 580 and cpu unless you are doing crazy overclocks. Also loop order does not really matter only Res>Pump everything else should be put in what ever way to use the least amount of tubing.

I was originally going to water cool my dual 460's but decided it wasn't worth spending the extra money trying to find full cover water blocks. So I opted for the 580 instead. I will be adding a second one soon anyways. You can never have too much! tongue.gif

In order for me to overclock higher on my cpu, I need more voltage and being on air was preventing me due to heat. Hopefully this setup will help me achieve 4.0+

That looks like a pretty long tubing run, I think I'd swap things around a bit to clean it up. Maybe a loop order something like:

res > pump > 240 > gtx580 > cpu > 480 > res or
res > pump > 240 > gtx580 > 480 > cpu > res, depending on which you prefer the look of. I think the second would be preferable, personally.

I think I would've went for a bay reservoir / pump top combo to clean things up even more, you could've gone res > pump > cpu > 480 > gpu > 240 for a much cleaner run.

Funny you mention this order. I drew up a sketch with your first option.I'm liking the second as well.looks like I would use less tubing coming from cpu . I should have went with a Res combo but its too late now . Thanks man!thumb.gif
