Great, glad I could inspire you!
It was my plan to for the maximum amount of rads in without losing any capacity of any area of the case
The drilling of the holes was the only bit I had to consider how I was going to do carefully, and a hole punch seemed to be the best., rather than a horrible hole saw

Yeah I know the tubing run from the bottom rad to the top is a bit ugly, I spent ages trying to think if another way but couldn't, as I couldn't turn the top rad round cos the ports would then be blocked by my bluray drive

The only pic i got but its a 30 mm thick rad so it is some breathing room between the hdd rack in back position and rad and enough room in the front to run tubing up to the odd bay like this:

-My 780's w/ waterblock are 10.5" long
-The 2nd card in slots 4 and 5 clears the res bracket by 7mm

Posted pics some pages back



but again, why does mu 10.5" card fit and your's doesn't ? ....not watercooled ?

Well, upon getting home tonight I went back and read your past info on this exact subject some 20 pages back and then opened up my system, pulled out my bottom gpu, shimmy'ed the reservoir bracket into place, then kinda "eyeballed" where the base line of the bottom card will be once the acx cooler is removed and replaced with a waterblock.... and I think you're right, I *think* it will just barely fit. I'm willing to bet the bottom right edge of the waterblock will rest on the diagonal edge of the res mount, but I think it should have enough clearance to sit level, if tight. I stopped short of removing the acx cooler, installing the waterblock, and sticking it in my powered-down system just to be absolutely certain -- that's more time & energy than I can muster on Tuesday night after a long day at work. But I'm gonna do just exactly that first thing Friday night, that way if all goes well and it fits I can move forward with stage 3 of my build on Saturday; and if not, I can just run to Ace Hardware and pick up a dremel -- what's another $80 at this point? LOL

As always, thanks for the insight & advice, without you guys to talk me down off the ledge from time to tim this build would probably have me pulling my hair out by now. lol

Oh, and btw, I picked up a dual-layer photo quality decal of my avatar today from the FedEx Store (I think they merged with Kinko's? they do full service printing now). 4"x4.5" to be mounted on 1/4" plexi (being custom cut this week) and mounted in the small window lit by LED backlighting (and the black border blacked-out so only the image glows). Like a BOSS. devil.gif

p.s. even with just my existing hardware and radiators in place (no watercooling installed yet), and cable management still half-baked, this thing is freakin GORGEOUS. heart.gif

No, it cannot be purchased separately yet. Word is it will be available as an accessory sometime in early 2014.

Mark my words - it will *revolutionize* the fan segment.

Speaking of the fan hub.... Did you know it doesn't even have to be connected to a PWM fan header? It works off any 4-pin fan header even if that header isn't REAL pwm. It's widely known that only "cpu fan" & "cpu opt" on Asus mobos are REAL pwm; all others, despite being 4-pin headers labeled "PWM" in Asus documentation, other "chassis" & "option" 4-pin fan headers are use the fan's reported speed to drive voltage control - not quite the same as PWM. Nonetheless, the Phanteks hub works perfectly attached to these. smile.gif

LOL

I went thru the exact same process.... went from the Photon to the Stacked EKs ..... but bought just one 780 / WB to do final measurements.....and found out it wud fit...... so all was right with the world.... went to see the folks at FrozenCPU.com today and picked up my res, 2nd GFX WB, CPU, WB, .... way too much money's worth of fittings.....and when I got there, they told my last remaining item (backplate) had come in.....yeah I building on Wednesday !!!!!!!]

NOT !

Not everyone has had the same experiences as you have with using other PWM headers other than CPU_FAN with the Phanteks fan hub ...

Doesn't make a difference whether i connect the molex cable or not...

[edit]
okay, connecting the fan hub to the CPUFAN works. why!? do the SYSFAN ports not support PWM? the manual says the do...

Guess you're not using Primochill's rigid acrylic tubing, because you sure don't need anything like that, or need to file/sand anything other than cut it to length with their tube & fittings, and the cut doesn't even need to be all that straight or clean even and it works just fine. Plus with Primochill's compressions you have a few extra mm's of play you can adjust each tube a bit that you won't get when using push-fit fittings, and in my practice runs so far that has often (read: usually) been the difference between whether the piece I'm working on is perfect, or garbage.

HERE. I had one in my Amazon order i placed last week. I deleted it at the last minute when i saw the upcoming Monsoon HardLine Accessories tongue.gif

There's a bunch of similar ones on Amazon. Just search like Pipe Reamer, Pipe Debur, Acrylic Debur, Acrylic Reamer, etc. I found like 15 different ones
