You do know how restrictive those Rasa blocks are ? http://skinneelabs.com/universalgpu-nv480/8/ Might be a good idea to to get couple of Y-connectors also if you need to put them in parallel configuration.

Hm. I was contemplating parallel, but these two threads scared me off. I guess with my smaller GPU Core-only block, stagnant water shouldn't be a problem if I were to go parallel.

I don't want to rain on your parade, but EK make a full cover block for your card so I would suggest you check it out...

Yeah... That is nice... and gorgeous--but at $115 each, roughly double what I paid for my RASA blocks + memsinks. Ironically, a friend of mine linked that to me (on FrozenCPU) just a few hours after I bought mine. I assume the Rasa will give me better core temperatures, but obviously much worse aesthetics and RAM / PWM temps. Oh well. I bought a ton of small BGA heatsinks, and I will put them all over the place. Let's hope my non-reference PWMs don't explode. smile.gif

Also made another purchase. Just bought a 4x120mm Radiator Shroud from Koolance along with four of their 120mm grilles. Now to buy a dremel... Although I've watercooled in the past, this will be my first time cutting a case open. Ever.

Very nice! I have the 360mm shroud and it looks really good on my 800D. I would suggest keeping a fan aimed at the heat sinks but it is possible to hide the fan so it looks really sleek inside a case. I too need to find a dremmel but first I need a job smile.gif

Awesome. BTW, how did you cut your case to use the shroud on the 800D if you don't have a Dremel already? I ended up buying the Black & Decker RTX-B Rotary Tool, which is supposedly better than the low-end authentic Dremels--and most importantly, is compatible with Dremel bits. I also purchased these Aluminum Oxide Dremel disks from Mnpctech.

Regarding the rig itself, looking at the flow charts again and again, I've decided to swap GPU blocks to EK Supreme HF. I picked up a pair of those, and I anticipate slightly better cooling, with much better flow. And given that I'm on a 655, the EK blocks should be much more suitable.

Now, I just hope that Xoxide will be willing to accept my unopened return. Alternatively, if anyone here wants a pair of unused Rasa GPU blocks on-the-cheap, PM me. tongue.gif

Edit: Woohoo! Xoxide will accept my return, despite it being their policy to not accept watercooling returns. They're making a special exception for me since mine are unopened. Talk about good customer service. It will surely incur a 15 or 20 % restocking fee, but I don't mind that at all versus having to sell them off.

I went with the XSPC Raystorm (Rasa successor) for the CPU since it's a few degrees better than the EK Supreme HF CPU block. Went with the EKs for the GPUs, though, because of better flow characteristics (and ~1 degree better performance) than the Rasa GPU blocks. smile.gif

Also, this is the fan shroud that I purchased. I hope it fits... I noticed that the silver and black variants had different inter-fan spacing. =X

Oh, and hopefully I get all the parts this week!
