Once I actually get my cooling stuff, then I'll look into making a custom system of my own, using those things.

Nah thats no water block. Thats only a full cover heatsink thumb.gif

It can be done, but for me it's waste of money wink.gif
Custom loop will be more expensive, but it will be way better option. This isn't as complicated as it seems, go for CUSTOM biggrin.gif

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!

There's not enough place for 2x240 I think, single 180 on front will do the job. Also let go 120 at the back. 240 on to and 180 on front will be fine.

Please lookup Dwood on OCN. He makes a bracket for this exact purpose.

I'm thinking of running only a single rad in my build (gtx 680/3770k) with this: 

 

Alphacool NexXxoS ST30 Full Copper Slim Profile Dual 120mm Radiator - Custom Painted White

 

Is this a recipe for disaster? My goals are to only dabble in overclocking, but the loop itself is mostly for aesthetics. I'm going for a very roomy inside. I'll be pushing air out thru the top with 2 fans. My loop will be:

 

pump -> gpu -> cpu -> rad -> res

 

If push comes to shove, I might put a single 140 rad on the back between gpu and cpu. Advice?

You've got powerful CPU and GPU, single 240 won't cool it enough. 200/180 on front of the case would be a good idea wink.gif

Yeah as I stated I am not ready to do one. I have not been able to work so I am trying to get some WFH gigs on the side. I already put enough money in my system and my wife would not be happy if I put more in on a custom loop frown.gif Besides this will be my first dabble at WC and I know from what I have seen and read it isnt difficult to do biggrin.gif

HAHA I already did thumb.gif He already made my backplate and case badges. I will be working with him on making sure I can get the right size that holds a standard fan in place to cool the heatsink as the heat disperses thumb.gif I want to be able to put my panels back on--once I get them back tongue.gif

EDIT::::: For those of you waiting, the product I needed to start molding better legs came in!!!!!!! I will be posting pics and I will start a new thread outside of my build log in the coming week or so!!! More info to follow!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO cheers.gif

I really don't like how much space that takes up in addition to fans. I really wanted to make use of a 230mm case fan as intake on the front with fans on top and back pushing hot air out. I am nervous about the 1 slim radiator handling the whole loop. So I'll at least put a 120mm x 45mm rad with a good fan between the gpu and cpu.

You will be able to mount a 230mm fan to a 200mm rad. The bitfenix fans are designed in such a way it is possible!

If you are doing no OCing, you will be fine...I would add another 120 or 140 rad to the loop though.thumb.gif
