Ok my plan so far dual 480s up on top chamber they will be cooling 2x 780s (now 11 minutes into the STH10 review of TTL he has a 140.4 rad mount on it, was that modified?), on bottom chamber I guess one side would have to be 140.4 and the other 140.2 (I like the quiet operation of the 140mm fans) rads that will be cooling the CPU and Mobo, the pump will not be hid it will have the RES right on top of it in the middle chamber.

Sounds good. Which 140s you going with for fans? Also, check out Seanimus' build here on OCN. Quite thorough and with a lot of pics for this case.

Alright I'll definitely give it a look, the fans that I'm looking into getting are the xigmatek FAX series fans they look cool, quiet, & move a good amount of air

cool. try the NB's too..depending on your color scheme, these look good on a 560 biggrin.gif
probably won't be able to load a lot on one fan controller due to max volts, but could probably go through some gymnastics with usb strip to connect to a fan controller while being powered by 12 v separately..etc

My color scheme is black, this rig will be dubbed "Black Mamba" so I'm making everything black. So far what I have is:
Motherboard: MSI X79 Big Bang Xpower II
Motherboard Waterblocks: Bitspower ICE Black for Big Bang Xpower II
CPU: Intel Core i7 3930K
CPU Waterblock: Bitspower Summit EF ICE Black Acrylic
GPU: 1x EVGA GTX 780 (will have another 780 in the near future)
GPU Waterblock: Bitspower 780 Waterblock (this is still in development they have a Titan version and are working on a 780 block this has been confirmed on their Facebook page I asked and they answered me literally today that they are working on it)
I have more bits here fitting will be black, coolant will be black, hose will be clear, reservoirs will be clear but you get the point I'm going all black thumb.gif
