Will that CSQ bridge fit on any EK block or just the CSQ blocks?

Just CSQ. The clean CSQ blocks have a different style bridge.

Unfortunately there isn't an acrylic bridge option for the new clean CSQ blocks. People have been asking for one for ages, but EK said they were having difficulty machining the acrylic bridges. They may release one in the future, I just haven't heard anything about it recently though.

I gotcha, well there is always the HD tube bridge i suppose. It's really not so much that i need a clean bridge i just wish the CSQ was compatible with the clean block i have on my classy.

Do you have one or two cards? If two, I would just go with crystal link between the cards. Looks better than EK's bridges imo smile.gif

Dig the avatar btw. True Detective ftw (assuming it's not from some other random movie with Mathew Mcconaughey looking disturbed lol)

I don't yet but i've given thought to holding off on the loop and just picking up another 780 Classy then continuing. I doubt that happens but i see another 780 classy in the future probably towards the end of the summer. Been wanting a multi-GPU setup for some time, especially running this 144hz monitor. I had originally planned to do quad-fire or tri-fire 7970s, a triple monitor 120hz setup, the works lol. That fell through partly because i don't have the means to keep a rig that requires that much GPU power going, secondly i got my first 7970 december of last year. I love the 7970 but it was on it's way out by then, so the 780 came out then Hawaii and with the 7970 still around 300-400$ i didn't figure i was about to drop that plus a 100$ on waterblocks for such an old card. Caught a deal on this classy with this EK block for 510$ only six months old and only been OCed on water with stock volts to 1200 on the core. Couldn't resist. So here we are. Picked up a swiftech MCR-320 quiet edition, four sp120s, still have an EK 120mm to get, Bitspower EF summit, bitspower fittings, D5 top upgrade kit, swiftech MCP655, Koolance bay reservoir (i want two reservoirs for show) and need to decided on 1/2 x 3/4 or 3/8 x 5/8 tubing. I had initially always been a 3/8 x 5/8 kind of guy but recently really want the thick tubing. After seeing yours i'm unsure again lol.

Yeah it's True Detective, if you click on my profile you'll see the wallpaper is True Detective. I love that series it will remain my favorite for quite some time. Sucks McConaughey and Harrelson are gone frown.gif Wish i could change the PC gamer title to what i have on EOCF and Guru3d forums which is "The World Needs Bad Men" hehe

Great deal on the classy, I wouldn't mind having a couple of those instead of my HOFs. Sounds like a nice little loop you've put together as well. Which version of the EF do you have? I have two of them in my collection (the nickel one from this build and a white acetal version) but I'm using my Supremacy in my new build since the EF won't fit with the full cover mobo block on my maximus vi extreme.

Know what you mean about the tubing, I like both 5/8" and 3/4" just depends on the case and what style of plumbing I'm doing. If I have lots of blocks connected with loops of tubing then I prefer 5/8, but with straight runs in a big case I like 3/4. Went with acrylic this time though.

Yeah true detective is probably my favorite show right now as well. I'm bummed about the casting change too, but hopefully the new actors will be able to live up to the quality of the 1st season's cast. Speaking of which... Alexandra Daddario drool.gif

Here's the card. I gave serious thought about acrylic, no plasticizer issues is a huge plus. Despite it's thin body it's seriously great looking IMO. I felt i don't have an intricate enough loop to pull off a decent acrylic build. If i was going to incorporate the chipset/memory in there i would probably do it. Or maybe i'm too lazy to get into the whole bending part lol. In your build the 3/8 x 5/8 looks perfect size, maybe it's like you say given the size of the rig, it's contrast to the case is perfect. Mine will be in an 800D, i'm going to try not to incorporate any bends, so it has somewhat of an acrylic look in that sense. I'll have to take a look at the 3/8 x 5/8 hose on my Glacer 240L when i get back to the apartment and finally decide what i want. Oh BTW you haven't had any issues with pastel? I know most don't i'm just curious seeing as you did this around 9 months ago.

I'm really bummed about them replacing McConaughey and Harrelson. I think the director set too high of a precedent to simply replace them and expect this series to retain it's quality. Though from True Detective's success Cinemax is looking to come out with a very good series. The Knick Directed by Steven Soderbergh starring Clive Owen, it's a mini-series about the early days and advancement of surgery in the knickerbocker hospital in the early 1900s. It looks great IMO, though it's a very different tone.

And yeah Alexandra Daddario....drool.gif sweet jebus

Nice looking block, wish EK still made the full cover acrylic SE blocks. It would look awesome on the Classy. Dunno if you're big on overclocking or not, but there's an EVbot for sale on ebay that would be a nice addition to your card.

The 840 is a pretty big case, so I think the 3/4" tubing with angle fittings will look really nice. I'm sure 5/8" would be clean too though. I'd probably stick with the bigger tubing if you've already got the fittings.

Nope no issues with the coolant, I only ran it for around 5 months before tearing down the build but I didn't have any problems with staining or color changes. I did a really slack job of flushing my rads too lol. Of I did again I would do a better job, especially since I've read about quite a few people having ph unbalance with their alpha cool rads. I'm running aquacomputer AMS rads now so I don't need to worry about flushing them beforehand since they are modular and don't use solder in the construction.

I almost went back to flexible tubing because I was kind of tired of seeing so many acrylic builds, but I already had all the rotaries and stuff so I stuck with it. I wouldn't have done the bending method since I kind of suck at it lol. I just hate how expensive it is using fittings for bends. I've got like 50 rotaries not counting all the extensions and multilink enhance fittings... could have done some serious hardware upgrades instead of spending all that cash on fittings tongue.gif

I hadn't heard about the knick, I'll have to check that out. Soderbergh and Owen have both done some great stuff in the past so it does sound promising. Thanks for the heads up thumb.gif
