Good looking build, what are you going to be doing with it, the 3770k might be a little overkill imo.

That PSU won't fit cleanly in that case as it's 6.3" or ~ 160.02mm, I have the AX750 and I needed to use some bolts and nuts to make some spacers for the plate - just fyi for ya.

Also you should be good with a 200mm rad and a 240mm rad, I don't think the 120 will be needed; also have you checked to make sure those components will fit in the upper corner where the 5.25 resides? Are you planning on push/pull?

You should definitely check out the Bitfenix Prodigy club and make sure those WC components work well together - I'm pretty sure the phobya is the one people go with but just want you to get the right stuff the first time thumb.gif

Edit:

Also you'll want to have a fan controller of some sort, all counting you'll have at least 4 fans:

- 2 on the 240, what fans are you going with for this?
- 1 on the 200 (may be able to 7v mod this one and let it run without control)
- 1 on the back for airflow purposes to exhaust, which this is your zalman?

If you get PWM fans you could do splitters and run off of the CHA fan port on the ASRock mobo and run volt fans on the CPU fan port and use something like SpeedFAN for software fan controlling - works pretty well.

Thanks for the reply!

Yea 4-6 zalman

I would push/pull rear for exhaust. 2 zalman ( ijust picked the zalman because the clear blades and copper rads) i didnt think about pwm

Planning on mounting 240 outside on top, if I can find an all copper rad(maybe radgrill and trim it)
Top would be 2or4(if i need push/pull)

the other is front, obviously.

thanks for the input!

Hey np, Alphacool makes all copper radiators, you could probably strip the paint off of them but you'd have to worry about getting oil on the rad or even an all copper rad grill and it turning green.

In my experience push pull will net a difference of about 3c, with the setup you're getting I think you'd be fine with pull with the fans on the inside, perhaps even the rad too that way you could still use the stock fan filter.

Good luck with your build.

That 5 1/2" is completely removable, I just removed it from my prodigy, you should be able to fit 2 240's in there with a little pushing n shoving.

I love the components list, I don't think I'll fork over the grand for a 690 or a titan, but I'm still considering it in my prodigy biggrin.gif I decided to use the H220 when it comes out as the pump, since any other pump you'll need a res / pump separate, but AD2 or H220 gets it all on the closed loop, saves you a lot of space in the small form factor. Has the added bonus of being expandable, so you can add another 220-QP or XP if you want a bit more performance.

If you haven't looked at it yet or purchased your stuff, I would consider it. The kit comes with an 8 port PWM, so you can put all your fans you can fit in the case on the PWM, and have them (and the pump) all tune off of 1 mobo / ATXU setting.

considering the xflow rads(for flow and short runs), but someone said they cool like a single(need more investigation on this)
http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=4540:6189024ac7dc2c4948d00ee97bf175ab

read my edit tongue.gif

The H220 comes with an 8 port PWM, 3 of which is occupied out of the box, if you put 2 fans on the other rad, and another 120, you still have 2 ports left on the PWM. All of those can and will run off the CPU pwm header on your mobo smile.gif 1 stop shopping for all of your stuff to crank up, just a little bit smile.gif

Its been confirmed by a test box, and by some of the hardware reps on the boards from Swiftech that the pump in the H220 is quiet enough, yet powerful enough to handle 2 GPUs and 3 rads in its loop. I'd say your loop fits in it just fine.
