More updates







This is what I was talking about when I said I wanted the drain coming off of the GPU. I don't think that it looks to bad. This might be it for the night.

Where to put the 90's



I was playing around with how I want the loop and I either need more 90's or need to find a different/better looking way to make this loop work as is. You should notice I have 20mm extenders on the 480 to use the 90's up there. It looks like if i got 2 more four the gpu It would look better. Thoughts?

I think it's looking good, and fun! Would love to be working in that case. If you wanted you could change the fitting above your drain on the card to a 45 or a 90, and then where is it going from there? into the res? Would be more of a straight shot into there with an angled fitting.

Yeah its going right to the res. Im really considering adding 240 rad to the loop I have plenty of extra fittings (old fittings that would work for now. I have a UT30 but I would atleast need a ut60 or maybe even just go for the monster.

UT30


EK 240 from Kit XT


Or just stick with what I have for now and get a pedestal when I want to get another gpu and cool the motherboard? Or buy a UT60/ Monsta like I said above. With the bottom rad mounted this way I still have room in the front for another intake fan just waiting on my CL shipment.

I would go ahead and add a 240 to the loop....but make it a Monsta to match the top 480. thumb.gif With a giant 480 and 240 in there, if in the future you decided to add another card, or cool the motherboard, or do it all....the two Monstas are going to be plenty for that kind of setup and there never really will be a need for a pedestal. Unless you just trying to go all out and live up to the overkill.net standards. wink.gif

Actually the top rad is only a UT60. I have room for the Monsta but I only went for the 60. It looks like a monsta next to anything else I have. I would like to go all out with a pedestal eventually who knows would probably go for the AQ5 setup first. Does it look empty without a bottom rad? I would have to re work where I have the drain port really wouldn't make sense where it is now then. I would probably have to run it off of the 240. If I got the UT60 or anything larger it would have that front port would just have to get another angled fitting.

Two options





Im back and forth between these two options. Moved the 90 from the block to the gpu in the top one. Bottom one is adding another rad and making the drain off of that rad.

Honestly, I know I was one of the ones that told you do away with the 240 in your loop last week, but I think it would look so much cleaner with the 240 in there (especially where the drain will be located) and running it the way you are running it. I think that now because I can actually see it instead of trying to imagine what it would look like, single rad just looks bare, and like mike said, if you ever want to add a second GPU you are all ready to go. So +1 for the second picture for me. thumb.gif

Second pic is just a old rad I had laying around. I'd have to order the UT60 240 more fans and some more fittings (I don't want to use the ones I have flaking). PPC's is out of dual 's I must have bought them all. I need at least 2 more.
