Which water blocks did you go with for the 780 Tis. I have the same cards and I want to use PCIe slots 1 and 3 and in this scenario the water block needs to either be partial or a really low profile full cover block to fit within the indentation provided on the Enthoo reservoir mount. I'm curious if you took that into account or if you're planning on a PCIe 1&2 installation.

I'm kinda lost now....

1. With the 360, you don't use the Res mounting bracket .... so what were your rad screws slipping thru ?

2. If your 360 is 120 wide and my 280 is 140 wide ..... That musta been one hell of a dent the UPS gorillas laid on you.....20mmm .... That's almost an inch (0.8")

Love the white rads BTW, now all ya need is the white EK Res to match smile.gif

The screws fit through all mounting areas:

There are a few spots the bottom pedestal blocks screws, this might be solved by moving the rad one way or the other but by the time I found out I had cut all the tubing to length.

WP_20131130_012.jpg

The rad is very snug in there, it scraped the paint off when I forced it down. As far as I know, the UT60 white is no different than the Monsta of regular UT60 as far as width (it is for 120mmfans).

I should mention, that I removed the rubber grommets in the lower area to make sure there was enough room for the rad. Also the trick is to get all the rads in before your mobo or anything else.

On the alphacools, I hate that too, and what i do is use 2 rad screws per fan, and then use 2 fan screws to hold up the fan to the chassis. makes it easy to install.

I got the EK-FC780 GTX Ti waterblock, simply because it was the only one in stock for the next 2-3 weeks. I had thought about that res bracket, but I originally had an R9 so I wasn't expecting it to fit anyway.

I guess I'll see on the 12th wink.gif

The EVGA GTX 780 TI Superclocked which I bought actually fits fine in slots 1 and 2, it's slot 3 (the one I want to use so I can get x16/x16 out of the cards) which looks like it'll need a really thin water block. I'm pretty sure yours will fit fine with the Enthoo res mount in place but the full cover version of that water block (EK-FC780 GTX Ti - Acetal+Nickel) is the one I'm not sure about. It's a little confusing how EKFC names their blocks as they have both a full cover and partial cover block both referred to as EK-FC780 GTX Ti.

Oh haha. I've got the full cover block. It's fully acetal on the outside but the block itself is nickel.

Ok, so same block I was looking at. From what I'm seeing, the advantage of the acetal portion is appearance. I don't see any cooling bebefits so likely I'll go for the shorter block which should allow me to fit that card into the Enthoo on the board's 3rd PCIe. Fingers crossed cause I really like that res mount - don't want to have to remove it.

For the next version of the Enthoo I would recommend that they move that video card indent portion of the res mount lower.. that would give people more flexibility because as it is now you can't run more than 2 high end video cards without liquid cooling them.

Yeah, I guess that and the extra 3 games + performance are the benefits of having a whining R9 290X, a whining replacement 290X, and being forced to buy a GTX 780 Ti because it's your only other option then either a. getting your money back, or b. getting probably another card with whine. LOL.

Oh well, kind of glad I shelled out the extra $200. For the drivers + shadowplay I guess it'll be worth it, that is of course apart from performance alone! tongue.gif
