450

So basically either a 250mm in between the case side panel and the graphics cards (just thought of this, but the SLI cable might be in the way), or a 160mm reservoir above the top graphics card, in between the radiator and the card.
I think it would look really good, UV Blue frozenq liquid fusion res at that location.

Or maybe this? Considering the amount of heat OC'd GTX 470 put out, it might be better to cool that water before going into the CPU.
Any ideas, anybody please?

A little update, for people who actually read this log. Got 45 degree rotary fittings in today, so I was all excited to finally fit my radiator. Well, it fits, sorta, but the fitting is applying a lot of pressure on the PS/2 ports. Now I don't give a rats ass about the PS/2 ports anymore, but I am wondering if this is going to cause trouble. It's definitely not ideal. Also, there is no way I can make the 4-pin power connector fit at the top, unless I cut off the "clicking" mechanism. There certainly is space to fit the cable, but not with the secure-lock click (whatever it's called). I could of course not use a fan in that location, but that defeats the purpose of having a 420 radiator.... In hindsight, I wish I chose a 360 rad, oh well.

450

Probably not too clear here, but the fitting is putting quite some pressure on the PS/2 ports... You can also see a temporary DangerDen reservoir I picked up at the local Microcenter.

Bought a dremel today, so I am going to cut the top part of the bay out later, so that the 3rd fan from the back will have some useful airflow. Also, I ordered two GTX 480s (only $420, how could I resist) and got two DangerDen full cover waterblocks! These will arrive somewhere next week. Now I don't think my 420 rad will be able to keep all of those cool, so I am looking at a 240/280 rad for in the bottom. Probably going to be a 240, because I have 120mm fans lying around.

I would also like to make a fill/drain port. On the back of the top radiator there is a port that I could possible use as a fill/drain port. If I would want to drain the system, all I would have to do is turn the case 90 degree and open the port, and let gravity do the rest. Hopefully this picture clarifies.

450

I would drill a hole and put some sort of G1/4" plug in there for easy filling/draining.

So basically, is it a good idea to remove the secure-lock mechanism from the 4-pin power cable? I'm afraid that it can just get loose while the PC is running and that obviously spells disaster. I really don't want to lose the fan.

Leak testing. Can't fit the 4-pin power plug in the top, will need to cut the secure-lock mechanism off or remove the fan. Any advice?

No reason that cutting the latch off would cause an issue since you won't be messing with your cables after its assembled smile.gif

Yeah, problem is, I was going to rma this psu cause it makes a bad noise when playing games...it's odd. Anyway since I couldn't wait I cut the latch and booted. Obv no leaks and everything running smooth. i7 920 @ 4.2ghz, 75 load with only 3 fans pull on low rpm, not too bad.

Still a lot of work to be done, but at least I'm finally making some progress.

Oh, and yate loon medium speed fans are too noisy for me, and undervolting makes am awful sound. So I need different fans tongue.gif

Probably coil whine from stressing. You could RMA if you want, but the replacement might do the same thing :/

Why would the replacement give me the same trouble? It only happens when a lot is being rendered on the screen. If I look at a black sky, the whining stops. I made a thread about this but the only somewhat useful reply I got was "It's dying".
After this WC ordeal I don't really have the cash to spend for another PSU.

My loop is set up as the first one you suggested. I haven't had a chance to max my OC on either the GPUs or CPUs yet. If I do that soon, I'll let you know how my CPU temps look.
