Chris..... are yu doing rigid ? Seems the US is outta E22 tubing and if I was going to order from overseas, figured might as well get a group together.

No, I originally wanted to do rigid acrylic tubing because I really like the aesthetic, but after careful consideration I decided that was one extra complication I didn't need on my first wc build. I'm using regular 3/4" OD Masterkleer tubing this time.

I'll make the switch to rigid acrylic on my next upgrade (a few years from now).

p.s. I saw on Monsoon's facebook page recently that they're coming out with a set of acrylic pipe bending templates. They look really useful if you're going that route, check them out.

Acrylic tubing is easier to use than it looks like, trust me. With a right insert, and temperature, you can bend the tube with hand without using anything. And if really want to use something, we all have stuff laying around at home that can be used to accomplish bending without any issues.


Plus acrylic tubing from places like mcmaster are dirt cheap so its okay if you mess up.

For my upcoming build with this case it looks like I'm gonna have to go dual PSU for what I'm trying to accomplish. On the backside of the case, is there anyway to fit 2 PSU's back there? I'd like to keep the front available for a 480 rad.

What is Monsoon's facebook page? Can't seem to find it or any mention of it on their site.

Very interested in the case, but I'm wonder about the maximum thick for a radiator if it's installed using the side bracket. As I've already got a 240mm Monsta and would like to also have a 480mm on the bottom, I've seen 30mm, but I've seen people using 60mm thick rads on the side bracket with a 480 on the bottom. Anyone got an accurate measurement?

Look at Jesse's build over at the Modzoom.... he put 2 PSUs in ....

Putting this in a new post ..... It's the pic some of ya'll been waiting for:

Asus GTX 780 w/ EK Water Blcok and Backplate WILL FIT IN SLI with 3 slot spacing and reservoir bracket in place. That's the card in Slot No. 4 and 5. There's about 7mm clearance between the end of the card and the bracket at its skinniest point and just about 30mm to the centerline of the holes. IOW the 60mm res shoud just fit.




Slot 1 and 2 - 1st GFX Card
Slot 3 - empty
Slot 4 and 5 - 2d GFX Card

NOTE: Figured I better come back and report this ....literally came to me while sleeping smile.gif

If ya have the EK Water block that I do....the "clean one", it fits:



If you hAve either of the other ones, it don't





Notice the part where it's not as wide on the right side..... that will hit the slanted part of the res bracket for the lower card in SLI if ya have 3 slot spacing

Still testing for leaks.
Question: Is it normal to hear those gushing sounds when I turn on the pump? Or is this a sign there is some air left inside somewhere? The sound doesnt seem to come from the pump itself but the radiators / blocks / reservoir (hard to tell). After a couple of seconds with the pump running it goes away but I am new to this and want to make sure. I followed the advice of repeatedly starting the pump and tilting / shaking the case in all directions. I should have hit the gym before with this case rolleyes.gif
