yeah possible, but I bought the vertical mount especially to mount the reservoir where it is now. biggrin.gif

Actually, when the case is closed, it is perfectly lit up from the window;).

Cool ! took a look coupla pages back, and I see what you say about the closed door look. I caved and bought the vertical mount, so I can at least see an option. I hate doing that, but how you gonna know otherwise, you have to see it in person, doncha !

People are buying the 680's because, while the 7970 has caught up a lot in performance, and even beats the 680 in a number of things, the Nvidia cards are just smoother and scale better in multi-GPU setups (SLI > CFX), not to mention they have far fewer issues when running dual, triple, or quad cards.

But I wouldn't buy either of them, I'd recommend the 670 FTW from EVGA smile.gif Full compatibility with reference 680 water blocks (which means you can get the beautiful, amazing, wonderful, and best-performing 680 block: the HeatKiller GPUx3 680, and I recommend the "Hole Edition" or the "Ni-Blk Hole Edition"), way better than average overclocking, modded BIOS available to push 1.21v instead of 1.975v (good for another 50-120Mhz), and of course the phenomenal EVGA warranty and customer service not to mention build quality.
Right now on the 'egg they are going for $379 + $20 MIR, which for a card that out-of-the-box is 0-2.5% slower than a 680 thanks to the (relatively mild, actually) factory overclock and which will more than likely be able to hit ~1284-1348 on the core and ~6850-7500 effective memory speeds, is quite a dam good deal!


As for sleeving colors, looking at your setup as a whole I'd go with something like 30% B-Magic, 20% White, and 50% Grey. Actually, the picture you have with those three colors is pretty much perfect! I think it'd really turn an (already) awesome rig into a truly beautiful one!


With the way you have your radiators positioned, the only way I can see to shorten your tubing runs (thus cleaning up the loop) would be:
- Have the pump go to the front rad instead of the CPU
- Then the Front Rad to CPU
- CPU to GPU
- GPU to Top Rad
- Top Rad to Reservoir Top

With some angled fittings you could do pretty much your entire loop with perfectly straight lines smile.gif

HERE is a quick Paint.Net sketch:
(I included the sleeved GPU cable and a few misc others wink.gif )

I can second this, the 670 FTW is a BEAST of a card. Mine boosted to 1300 mhz right out of the box! Still messing around with overclocking, but it's currently stable at 1370/6900 with only 1.10V

nicely done thank you Nleksan !

I'll have a look wink.gif

Only problem I see is :
- the reservoir top was for filling the loop
- won't it make a lot of bubbles ?

You can use a "Y" fitting or something similar to allow you to both fill via the top AND have the rad line come through the top smile.gif

What you need to prevent bubbles is a Bitspower Cylinder Reservoir Inlet Tube-thing (shiny, metal, and tapered) which allows the water rushing in to be below the water line (you'll have to run the water "more full"; but it'll just look better anyway)

thanks for the answer !

Guys I'm thinking about changing my GPU now because I may get 3 monitors and my video card would not cope !
I don't want to put a lot of money on it because I want to wait for the new cards from either Nvidia/Ati later this year.

I could get my hand on a GTX 590 for cheap (like $250-300), It seems to perform equally or better than a GTX 680


What do you think ??

First of all, there won't be any new cards from AMD this year, been already announced. Only a 7990 from swe.clockers - of course, that may change, but the fact that AMD announced no new cards are planned ....

I haven't seen an official word on the "780" line of cards from Nvidia. A 590 has problems with the fact that it has 2 gpus on the pcb, generate too much heat, and only 1 set of vram is used - 1.5gb. While SLI drivers are better than AMD Xfire drivers, AMD cards - 7970 - outperforms the 680. From what I've been reading the last few nights/days, it appears that in an SLI install with 1 monitor, 1 card uses its vram, while the other does not. That was what I was seeing last night on my own rig, noted in my own thread.s

A Titan solution is gonna coz headaches budget-wise. Word online is that a 2gb 680 in SLI, or its cheaper version, the 670 - will perform as well as the 4gb cards in SLI. I find that hard to believe. But since I just got started last night with 2 4gb 680s with that Asus 144Hz monitor, I can't really say much from experience.

So its stay away from the 590s.

Hi !

I Forgot to mention later this year or next year.

It was actually a question of price

Here the 680 is still really expensive (like $400 - 500 for a used one! )

And the 7970 has only one dvi therefore I'd need to buy adapters from displayports to dvi

The 590 seemed the best choice, I wanted to watercool it. But hey, actually a lot of people say stay away from it on the Internet.


I guess I'll have a look at the 7970 then !
