It should fit just fine although you would need to get rid of the fan clips on the GPU side or bend them so they don't block the PCI slot, which shouldnt be that hard I guess. It will be a tight fit there will be literally no space between the cooler and the GPU pcb.
In the end I switched to Asus P8Z77-I and a Noctua NH-U12P SE2 because of better performance and OC capabilities.

thanks, i'll look into it

Actually its locked so no OC'ing at all. Asus is best all around in terms of stability and being able to fit extra large coolers

i can overclock the cpu to 4.2 ghz or so just by increasing the multiplier

You can go as high as you can get without bumping the voltage smile.gif 4 seems like a realistic number.

Anyone willing to Help with loop and measurments?

Im thinking of trying to get

2xblack ice stealth 240 xflows in

292x133x29.6

the dimensions look OK" w250 x h310 x d340 case"

If I had to, I would mount one on top outside, and one inside front.

Also thinking of one rear 120, think i can get that all suffed in with some fans pulling?

any help is great!

Watch out with those xflows, they're single pass only meaning that the water only goes through the radiator once (this is because the ports are on opposite sides). Normal rads are double pass, so the water goes through twice because the ports are on the same side. This means more time in the rad, more time being cooled by the fans, which leads to lower temps. So hypothetically having 2 xflow rads is like having 1 normal, which may not be enough for a gpu+cpu loop.

Just something to think about...

I am using the MCP-35x with PWM control ... i also have the bitfenix recon and i was wondering if i could use it just to control the speed of the pump since i am going to be powering it with the molex connector .... i read somewhere that you shouldn't connect the pump to the fan controller at all but i wanted to ask here first because i dont want to mess it up ....

If anyone has some info on this i would appreciate the help

Thanks

you can oc on the gigabyte board - but it's a lot more limited in comparison. and there's no voltage control lol

The only reason why this club has not gotten bigger is because they cases are sold out EVERYWHERE. Man, what a win for BitFeniX!
