What is a "pump top" ?
Ehm about the color, i guess i'm going for black and yellow (like the motherboard, looks sick imo). I think i'm gonna mount the Mainboard between both reservoirs. I'll draw a small sketch soon
2x UT60 240 and 4x gentle typhoon fans will be fine then. Now, i'm not sure about the frozenQ reservoirs, they are very expensive compared to others, but look a lot better.
Any recommendations about the blocks? The EK Water Blocks EK-FC770 GTX looks good, but not sure about nickel/acetal, same prize. Is there a difference? What about the CPU block?
Thanks in advance
Here's a SMALL sketch with wrong dimensions for sure and it have to fit with the hoses-management tho
Well you have an advantage here over everyone else. You will have loads of space behind to work with instead of having to curve inside your case to install things
Oh black and yellow looks really nice water cooled. The best ive seen is by Kier, maybe take some inspiration - http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?t=148605
. Its a good read even though its not wall mounted... anyway
Question: Are you going to be sleeving your cables?
IMO with the res' I would just go with the primchill 400/240 reservoirs in yellow if the frozenQ's are too expensive. 2 primochills is just over the price of 1 frozenq res...
Okay it might be easier to show you what a pump top is, say you have a MCP665-B (Standard WC pump - very good flow/cost ratio). It looks like this
. With a pump top on, it would look something like this
. Not to mention the added performance (20%), looks good but also you can install barbs, compression fittings and things that have g1/4 thread holes. IMO I regret not getting one but it might be too expensive.
Blocks is your own choice about aesthetics, with a black and yellow build I would recommend the acetal and nickel. If your worried about mixing metals just throw some killcoil in there... Theres no difference in performance, its all about your build. If you acetal + nickel gpu block, go for the Ek Supremacy Acetal as well.
There are different looks to them. Its up to you.
If you dont like the look of the ek supremacy take a look at this:
