Yes I have the Asus Z87 Sabertooth, x46 @ 1.264v is the best so far.

Thank you

To many upgrade plans, a good problem!
Going to put the evga 780 under water, most likely with evga block. will go good with the back plate I already have.
I am thinking 2x 360 monsta rads push pull, even though it means getting rid of my dvd drive I think. no biggie but, I always had one.
Already bought the Bitspower Pump mod kit (black sparkle) and the pump top (black). need to get rid of my bay res, this leads to a question.
Bitspower has the res that can go on top of my pump top witch looks good but, I am not sure if I like the way it mounts( straight up I mean) don't think it will look as good as the usual mount position. Really not sure what way to go yet. Any thoughts? Also the 270 Photon from Xspc looks really good.
I am also playing with the idea of the primochill rigid tubing, so damn good looking and stays much clearer than regular plastic tubing.

By now I am sure you are sorry you asked. LOL
My head is spinning, so many choices. thumb.gif

I guess it comes down to esthetics..
I ordered the Bitspower 150 upgrade kit clear version along with the acrylic mod top and the Bitspower mod kit black version.
I really love this pump and res setup. Hopefully it will be ready for pickup at the post office tomorrow smile.gif
Ill also be doing a fully acrylic tubing with Bitspower fittings thumb.gif
Are you familiar with Singularity Computers on youtube? If you havent.. i definitely recommend checking him out !
I have been following hes channel for a couple of years now and he basically made me buy the SM8 and also inspired me to do my first warercooling system.

Been watching singularity computers too, love his work. One thing I like about the Primochill vs the way he does it, you don't need all those Bitspower fittings. It can really add up his way. Also I think the Primochill method is a cleaner look without all the extensions and multiple 90's. I guess that is a matter of opinion.

I hope you get your part tomorrow, waiting is terrible. We all know the feeling!

I know that Daniel@Singularity will be messing around with the acrylic in hes future client build logs.
I might be trying it out also.
