Don't sit on the fence, simply get a rotated design into production ? biggrin.gif

With the current 540, I highly doubt it at this point, it cost a lot money to retool a current design.

If something like that was to get implemented, it'll be for the future cases wink.gif

Here is my custom build. Just added the water loop. Put the pump/reservoir outside the case because it was bigger than I anticipated. I was a little bummed out about the EK parallel block. It was extremely limited in how it could be configured, especially since the EVGA 970 power connectors are in a poor location. All in all I'm really happy with the loop setup, and the only one I've seen with a 140x30 rad on the rear exhaust. It also has 280x30 rads on front and top. System stays nice and cool. My 4790k is running stable at 4.7GHz at 1.24v.

Looks good thumb.gif Would love to see some clear pics of how you brought the tubing in through the case if possible. I assume you had to cut it - did you use a bracket or anything for the tubing? Thanks.

Cheers.

I just removed 2 of the expansion card plates and cut out the support bar between them. It's not very pretty, but it does the trick. will probably make a custom plate to go in there eventually, but for now it makes draining the system over the sink a piece of cake.
Sorry about the blue hue in the pics. My phone's camera doesn't like the blue LED light.

Cool, thanks for that thumb.gif I've been wondering about ideas for using an external res and I"m not much of a modder so something like that might work well for me. + rep

My fix for the Hue light strip falling:



About $3.75 or so at Homedepot, Walmart etc. I forgot what I paid and I just bought it yesterday. rolleyes.gif

Cut to the first notch on the tip. Applied 6 inches or so at a time and pushed down the light strip. Then applied electrical tape to hold it in place. (Slippery stuff) Says 24hrs for full cure. So That's how long I'll wait to take the tape off. Good for up to 400*. If the inside of my computer gets near that I'll have other problems to worry about I think. tongue.gif

So this is what I ended up with.



4pm tomorrow I can pull the tape off then hope for the best. If it didn't work I'll just peel off the silicon and get some of that 3m tape crap that doesn't hold up after time. Been there done that with the side window on PSP. mad.gif

@scgt1

I've got the Hue and the light strip has just started coming loose too, it is a little long for the case though. I've got it running around the same place as you as well I think.
I may have to get some araldite on it (2 part uber hold glue)
