Also, I have two recommendations:
One, I think you should upgrade to a 1000 watt PSU. Here's a well-reviewed and relatively cheap 1000 watt PSU.
Reason being is because if you ever choose add another GPU, or more components of any kind, eventually you may be wishing you had some extra juice. It's a good long-term investment and I would, personally, not consider anything lower than 1000 watts for a true "gaming" rig.
Two, I don't like that samsung monitor. I don't know what you ended up buying (Catleap???), but I would HIGHLY recommend a Dell IPS panel.
I have one of these Dells and I absolutely love it. I did a lot of research before pulling the trigger on a display and in the end, the Dell IPS won hands down. Look up some reviews, and consider returning that Catleap or whatever it is you got because this monitor is that good.

Is op running four 680s?? You can SLI 680s on a 650 watt. If you're messing with the voltage then go with a 750 watt. Anything more then a 750 watt is wasting money unless you have a dual socket CPU or something like that.

The specs say 680, not the 580 that's in the comparison. These new 6 Series Nvidias have made a decent jump in power....

So....
Resurrection.

My build has so far more or less stayed the same, with a change of a 680 to 780 Ti.

I'm encountering a problem. I'm getting tired of the T-virus reservoir, and I'm having a problem replacing it. It sags, and just don't like how it is not really secure. I have a VPP655 pump, and so i was thinking of going the bay reservoir route.

tl;dr: What good bay reservoirs are there for the VPP655 (D5 pump)? Or, a better way to stabilize my pump in the case (maybe some stand?)

Pictures below to help show the problem:



Here, you can see how the pump is supported really by the tubing (and also some velcro on the bay drive). Kinda ghetto, but it was fine for my first build without prior experience.


Also, I'm looking at this res: Alphacool Repack Dual 5.25" Acrylic Reservoir - Clear
