I'm guessing that I'll find out... They "Lamptron" say it'll control the pumps, flow meter and or fans....

I'll use it for the three pumps, two temp sensors and and a flow meter....

Like you I'm not %100 certain about, but I'm hoping!

That is a massive overkill pump setup; I'd get a single Swiftech MCP35X instead, which will still move more than enough water for your loop, and remain quiet enough doing so.

I'd look into Koolance blocks for both your CPU and Titans. As it stands now, the CPU 380i from Koolance is the best CPU waterblock out there, thermally. Titan blocks are all pretty close, but the Koolance Titan blocks just look fantastic, and match the 380i.

Where exactly would the Phobya 1080s go? There aren't really any cases that support the 1080; I'd look into getting some nice Alphacool Monsta 360mm and 480mm rads instead, and putting them into the MM, Case Labs, Little Devil, or whatever you end up getting.

Also,why 20 fittings? You will only need 12ish if you use an SLI bridge.

Even though radiators are not nearly as restrictive as blocks, I would still definitely go at least dual pumps for redundancy.

Don't want to risk all that money in hardware on one pump.

$492.48. Total Amount: $660.36

For my fans I chose the cougars since they seemed to offer up good specs along with reliability.

If you check the last couple posts I made there's the description on my rads I bought. I didn't end up going with the 1080 phobyas since I chose the caselabs magnum sth10 instead of paying for the custom fits from MM not to mention the wait for the "custom" job.

Unbelievable how much info is on this site!! Researched quite a few of my items from here before before purchase!

One of which was the fan grill filters for the sth10.

It's all starting to come together now..... Still waiting on that damn case from CaseLabs and then I can "figure" this thing out....

Didn't want to take a pic of all the fans.....yet. having to pull all 40 plus of them out just to put on the table didn't appeal to me.

Okay now a question to all the liquid cooled gurus/afficianatos!!

The pressure that is in my reservoir when the pumps are on is enough to substantially lower my water level. What is a good thing/rule to go by when "capping off" my reservoir?

Do I do it when the pumps are on and the liquid is at its lowest or do I do when the pumps are off and then cap the fill port on the reservoir???

I just want to make sure so as I do not have unesseccary pressure in my loop?

Let me just say that three of these pumps really move some fluid even on a monster loop like this!!

Can anyone answer this as I do not know what the difference is and how I should go about figuring it out.
