Well...after some deliberation and some consideration into a couple of industry people helping me with the build, I went with the GTX 590 x2 video solution. For the pricing I got of the 2nd card and the two water blocks, worst case scenario is 6 months from now I sell the setup.

Took my current (know to be 100% working) GTX 590 out of my current build and got straight to work.

Unboxed the Enermax MaxRevo. I have always been a big fan of Enermax and their customer service. Quality cables...just too bad their cabling isnt all black or perhaps sleeved with simple black.

I am still waiting on a few parts and I have decided to go with 3 total XSPC EX480s. So the 3rd one is on order with some added fittings.

Just some progress shots...nothing yet set in stone in terms of placement.

So this side with have top and bottom EX480s. The other side will have the 3rd EX480 on the top.

I am going to need something to add some "height" to the mounts for the EK Tube reservoir. Not enough clearance behind it for cables to pass under it.

Thoughts, comments, reco's welcome.

Don't know if you have turned it on yet - or if you haven't if you have used them before - but how loud are four of those Feser fans?

I plugged them in when i first got them individually, very quiet when compared to the 6 various fans I have collected over a number of builds for myself and friends (including gentle typhoon).

However, tonight I plugged them in while mounted to the rad...QUITE is an understatement + the amount of air it was moving was impressive. I have 4 sythe kamas in my current rig and they don't even compare to how quiet and how much air they move.

But arn't they kinda overkill? I doubt you will see any noticeable temp differences over other fans. How many rads did you say you were going to have? Nvm; found it. Why not just go more rads, less fans?

Some go push pull on a rad (on a 480 that would be 8 fans on one rad) I went with just pull. I will have 3 x EX480s, so 12 Triebwerk TK-121. I wanted quiet and I got a good price on them (comparable to gentle typhoon pricing).

As for overkill...I joined OCN because I thought the "O" was for overkill smile.gif

EDIT: I did rely quite a bit on this review of various fans.

I would not have gotten them at the $30 price point.

Well personally, I would go five rads and less fans. Or 7 if possible. I plan to have a build like this someday, but that is dead silent and all black.

New question... what color sleeving for SATA and Power Wires? Keep it black...or introduce a color. Red? Grey/Silver?

I asked Martin about the Triebwerks, back when I started to update my loop, and he said that they were not really better than gentle Typhoons in terms of airflow through a RAD/noise. So for how big they are, I sent them back and got GT's.

I really liked the idea of them, but when I found out that they're not better, it was a bit meh.

Love your build, though, and they look massive, even in the TH10 biggrin.gif

I would probably agree on the "meh" in terms of air movement and noise. Outside of the price I got them for, I did like the "scale" (in terms of size) of them in relation to the case. I'm comforatable with the notion that actual performance in cooling will be on par with GTs. If it were -10% in performance, it would be a disappointment.
