This is a really long post. Sorry
Okay.. So I just found this and went completely nergasm.. http://www.frozencpu.com/products/22074/ex-rad-661/Alphacool_NexXxoS_UT60_Full_Copper_Triple_140mm_Radiator_-_Special_Edition_White.html?tl=g30c95s931#blank
My plan is to get the white version of the Primo (if it will hurry up and be released!!) and use white Primo Chill tubing, and use the Asus Maximus Formula for the cool looking armor and the red for accents. While looking at radiators (I am still trying to decide on what thickness and number of fans to use), I found that white edition of the alphacool. Although I really like the way it looks, I feel like doing two of those AND white tubing AND a white Primo would be overkill on white. LOL.
What do you guys think? I think even white case and tubing, with regular black radiators and the stock fans included with the Primo would look sick.
If the white editon of the Primo doesn't come out soon, like by beginning of next month, then I may cave and get the black version (although I love the looks of the white case, especially with the white LED's). If I got the black version I would probably end up getting the white radiators though.
I have a few questions for you guys actually. First being, what's your preferred 780 water block? I like these two the best:
The XSPC one would probably look really cool, showing off the case in the dark.
My second question is, what radiator sizes should I go with? I've asked something similar but I truly can't decide. I keep eyeing those white radiators, and it makes me think of doing one in the top and one in the bottom. Obviously in the top I will have to go thinner, especially if I want to consider push/pull. But in the bottom I am (from what I have been reading) able to mount a monsta in the bottom with push/pull if I desire. Although I imagine that would get in the way with 2 way SLI. I imagine it gets in the way of a small reservoir mounted at the rear of the case as well. Speaking of reservoirs, I can't really decide on that either. I really like the idea of bay reservoirs, but I've read filling and bleeding them are a pain. I found this little guy right here, and he looks pretty sick nasty: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/20658/ex-res-596/PrimoChill_120mm_CTR_Compression_Tube_Advanced_Reservoir_System_-_120mm_-_Frosted_CTR-ADV-12-F.html?tl=g30c97s165
If any of you can help me out here too. I am a bit clueless on reservoirs. Like, is there any specific brand that is really good, and a certain volume I need? I seen a 80mm res of the same look as the one I linked, but not knowing the use of sizes or anything, I don't know. I assume larger reservoirs are for looks and to make filling easier. Also, if I did get, say that 120mm res, would it fit either in the rear of the case or at the side beside the hard drive cage?
Anyway, would a white res, white tubing, white case and white radiators be too much (although I may do traditional black ones)?
This post got really long really fast. Sorry about that. Haha. Thanks for any and all help in advanced!
EDIT* Whoops! I just realized that the white radiator I listed is a UT60. I know it is possible to mount that in the top, but with push/pull it's a bit too large. Doesn't matter too much, as I can just do either push or pull. What do you guy's think would be best?
Oh, and is a 560 even possible? LOL. Edited by Fumferknuckle - 2/16/14 at 12:04pm
