The recommendation for extra speed is to have overhead for warm days and because slim fans lack static pressure most times.

Even the fan should fit from the HG10 just going off a spare 120mm regular fan I have placed on top of the current GPU. So if the Arctic Hybrid II for some reason doesn't work, the HG10 should. 


I will take a look and see what I can find and get more precise measurements once the new 980Ti arrives. However, from the specifications and what I measured based on the currently installed components, they will fit. It might be a tight squeeze for looping the pipes but I won't complain as the FT03 is a small case anyways so having two separate AIO liquid cooling systems was likely not in the design plan.

The extra speed probably won't hurt as you said. Right now, the fans operate at 700RPM (System Intake) ->800 RPM (Internal Fan) -> 1200-1400RPM (Liquid Cooler outtake). Speeds vary + or - 100RPM usually except in Winter where they run + o - 200 or so RPM.
if you plan for the hg10 then you also need to check that the card you bought will fit since its specific to the pcb like a full cover water block. You can check comparability in the tech chart on the corsair webpage.

Rain is correct..the corsair..hg10 is a great thing which came because of "the mod"
but its aimed design is for gpus that although say oc..or acx 2.0...use the "Reference pcb layout" = the mounting holes and component positioning..
Otherwise its a 50/50 gamble mate.
It still baffls me..why do manufacturers always do this..it is not that expensive to add additional brackets to a aio kit or to tap a few xtra holes into a mounting plate..they call it universal but its only at most 60% universal..

If you really want clean looking in a small space..get gpus i saywith that gorgous titan style ref cooler..which is the norm nowadays..mod the center acrylic..or make a new one ..put the aio in..and be happy..
Or buy gpu with pre.installed units..evga etc.asus...oh id love to see your build in that small case..two gpus? Ouch..thats a lot of heat.

If I could do it all over again, I'd get the swiftech h240x and the GTX 980ti poseidon GPU.... It would have been so easy.....lol

The EK Predator looks crazy awesome. I like all the block is a real full over block, prefilled and all the hoses and things attached and sealed.

The difficulty when making a full cover block (and the manufacturers really try to make them to fit as much as possible) is the fact that on non reference designs there are often capacitors and other tall things that are placed differently than on the reference boards. This creates a big problem since, if you build your block to acomodate for all these things you ill be cutting away material that holds the block together and you can't add material in other places either since it's going to crash with the reference design if you do. Some manufacturers like EKWB do make a lot of blocks for non reference designs and I'm sure Corsair wanted to make a universal block as well (let's face it, the more cards you support, the more customers you get), but there is a limit to what you can do when making a full cover block (in Corsairs case the full cover block is actually a full cover faceplate).

I know of one exceptions to the rule however, like the Alphacool Nexxxos GXP. There are several designs for each card and while one may be directed towards reference, it does support a plethora of other cards as well since it's a big heatsink with cutouts to accomodate for such things.

Anyways, if you want full cover you really don't have a choice other than to check the compatability between the block and card before buying. The good thing though, it that they trake up very little space so someone like @Guardian Hope can mount his card in there right nup to the Audio card that he has with only 2 slots clearance total.

I figured as much: the thinner the profile the less pressure it can provide in the same area of space. Not only is the fan thinner, but without being able to confine the fan's airflow and compress it you aren't going to get the same performance of a fan with a greater surface area. It's a rule that applies to aerospace design too. While we aren't talking building a jet engine here, we are still taking away the total surface area for the air to flow through - from 25mm to 15mm.

 

This will definitely be an interesting project to say the least. I would say perhaps I should have bought the ASUS 980Ti that comes with a built in liquid cooling system but than it's tied to the card and it's not really modifiable. Heck, I'm not even sure if that card would have fit.

 

I'm actually looking forward to getting started on it once the new card arrives and I figure out the [best] parts I need but by than it could be possible that Pascal is out in which case you can figure where I'm headed.

I don't even think the Corsair HG-10 is out yet. At least, I can't find it available on Newegg, Amazon, or even Corsair's site. That's really an option of "last resort" for me. Like I said, this 980Ti is really just a holdover until Pascal but if Pascal releases before I can apply the mod as it were, than I'll have to figure out a liquid cooling solution for a Pascal based GPU. I have no intention of sticking with a 980Ti - it's just my other cards died an unfortunate death. 

 

Although this MSI 980Ti has LED lights. I've always wanted a GPU with LED lights so it might be painful to tear off the OEM cooler.

 

Personally for me, my next stop is whatever case that Maingear Shift uses. Heck, it might just be a Maingear Shift if I don't have the time to sit down and build a system myself - I'll just be grabbing every part of my current system that is still useful to me and take it with me. It's just there hasn't really been any real "leap" in the Core i7 line. Or at least it doesn't feel like it. 

 

I have many Xenon servers from Supermicro and some of what's coming down the pipeline for Xenon has me excited but they are two totally different applications.
