The res is the EK x3 400ml. It's huge. it's the biggest i could fit in the case. it came very close to not fitting but luckily the bottom is perfectly flat so I was able to let it sit on the mid plate and then I only had to use 1 bracket.
The res looks much better now because I filled it all the way to the top and now that it's been running the coolant looks a lot more even then it does in those pics. I had just filled it up so it looks a little funny.
I still need to get some cable extensions which I will order from Lutro Customs. I also got 2 more bitspower 90 degree fittings so all the fittings will match.
The only other thing I want to do is figure a better way for the tubing to enter thru the midplate into the bottom compartment. Right now there are three tubes that pass thru the midplate into the bottom compartment and 1 I just cut a hole with my dremel and the other 2 I used the pre-existing tube routing holes. I need to find some sort of fitting that will allow that. i think it will look so much nicer.
I also need some better lighting because the tubing around the mobo area is very dark. I have a desk light shining onto it now and it looks amazing.
But the performance right now is incredible. My cpu is at 4.8ghz and both my titans can game at about 1200 core. With the full cover blocks I was playing borderlands 2 last night for hours and both cards stayed at about 30c the entire time. The temps are amazing with the 3 rads.
