My apologies. I missed that. There just isn't many options for the Pump/Res combos.

Yea, that is one of the problem, as I stated above that I thought that a in bay res with a back mounted pump (mcp 655) would be his best option, but most of the single mcp655 ones leaked and you don't want that. The only ones that didn't leak were dual pump ones, and that is how we go here.

Wow thanks for the link to that threat FunwithOC! Don't know how I missed that. It's beautiful.

I'm not married to the idea of an inbay res/pump, but I figured that would do away the potential problem of having to relocate my hard drives (shame on me for not mounting the SSD behind the mobo, it's on the to-do list). I didn't even realize that it's possible to mount the hard drive bay closer to the PSU - that looks like the solution. That lets me use the front for a rad as well....

I had planned on buying high end radiators, as I know that's one of the most important parts to the cooling system.

Is there any type of formula used to calculate the actual amount of radiator needed for an individual setup? I found this link: http://daemonkin.hubpages.com/hub/Choosing-a-radiator-for-pc-watercooling but math was never my strong suit, and I'm a few beers in right now lol. I'm sure there must be some type of tool on the web that does this.

About my cables, they are actually sleeved (poor picture I know), they are the "metallic graphite" color from Corsair. I have a black extension for the 24 pin but haven't installed it yet. Thinking about routing them up from the bottom.... the power connectors on these cards are not in a very good place.

I think it would be a good idea to get away from the inbay res/pump if you can. It would help you and save you money. As he said above get a res with a pump attached to the bottowm as a custom pump top. That was in the build he sent you and I think will work nicely.
