Heya all

Long time lurker first time poster.

I have just recently ordered one of CaseLabs excellent STH10 cases for my new custom build. http://www.caselabs-store.com/magnum-sth10/

Since its the basis of nearly a total new build I decided I would be Santa for myself this year and going to go the whole hog with a custom water cooling setup.

System this is for: (only gonna worry about the stuff thats I will WC

Intel Intel Core i7 3930K at 4.5 at least more if I can keep it cool on a Asrock Extreme 9
2 Gigabyte GTX670's OC windforce 30s stripped of there air coolers and using XSPC Razor GTX 680 Full Coverage Waterblock (the fancy newer blacks ones with leds) running at 1240 or so atm getting to hot right now going to have to down clock them for summer.

Still being rather raw with larger WC setups I was wondering.

Fitting a XSPC Twin D5 Dual Bay Reservoir Pump Combo in the top chamber so I can easily pop the room to get to it for refilling since I have found I need to top it up every 2 weeks or so when summer is raging here and that I found with some of my other WC builds of a smaller scale that bleeding air out of the system is infinitely easier when the res is above the rads.

To combat the shocking air temps here in Australia over summer I am planning to fit 2 black 420 or 560 black ice GTX rads in the bottom chamber running full 12 to 16 fans in a push pull setup.

Now as you can see its a massive amount of case between the Res and the Rads to save having to run tubing all over the place would a setup like this work out?

RES/Pump > CPU > GPU > GPU > RAD > RAD > RES\Pump

Basically have the RAD's nearly working as one ultra giant 840 or 1120

and since I never built a loop of this size aka amount of tubing to move from top to bottom chambers will my choice of the dual d5's be enough to move the water around at a decent flow rate.

Trying to setup the loop like this so the case can be modded and painted in a specific way with solid chamber plates at the top and the vented ones at the bottom.

Any ideas or advise you can offer would be great before I drop big cash and have it fall over:P

Thanks for reading.
