I voted monitor in your pole. Not sure you've got much space left for speakers lol.
Yeah i'm really looking forward to seeing what kinda clocks i can get out of everything once i got it fired up.
I really haven't decided about using LED's in my blocks yet. I already have a bunch of UV, Red, & White LED's in both 3mm & 5mm. On the one hand, all my blocks are copper and plexi and my build is gonna be all red & white. On the other hand, ALL my blocks are copper and plexi, so they match..... I've actually thought about this for a while. Even considered changing some of the colors of my build. I've planned the white and red for too long tho. I'll be running my board on my little styrofoam pillow thingy while i'm rebuilding my case, so i'll have plenty of time to see if i like the blocks better with or without led's.
Yeah, it's definitely looking like it's gonna be a monitor =)

Following IT Diva's Stretch Limo build is what gave me the idea for the 35x3.
I was only getting 0.8 GPM with my 35x cranked all the way up when it was only flowing through the Apogee Drive II it was connected to + a single rad. 0.8 as a max MIGHT be ok with me if it was my entire system hooked up, but i hadn't even added my mobo blocks, 3 GPU blocks, 2 RAM blocks, and other 3 rads yet.
Plus i really like the way it looks
Since the whole fiasco with FCPU sending me the wrong Monsoon 6Pk, i've come to the conclusion that it makes much more sense to just order my ram blocks now and link up my whole motherboard area with acrylic while i'm running it outside of a chassis. I've been spending most of the weekend trying to put together a cpl carts on FCPU & PPC to make this happen. Just having trouble making a few decsions
After trying to make the crystal links i bought work with my mobo setup (which i just didn't have enough of the right fittings to make the lengths and angles), it feels like 16mm tubing would be too damn big to make my mobo area look decent. So, at least for my mobo setup, i'm gonna either go with 12mm (BP Fittings) or 1/2" (Primochill).
Right now i'm leaning towards the BP C47's, C68's, & and their newer Female/Female angles that they released with their new acrylic fittings.
The new Enhanced Multi-Link fittings only come in black, silver, and shiny black right now though. I'm really trying to keep everything as white & red as i can, so i can only go with C47's. They have C68's in Red though, which are basically C47's with a female thread.
I can't test my graphics cards til i make this order, so really trying to figure it out.
The reason i was trying to stay with soft tubing for now, is cuz i wanted to spend my "working time" on my chassis. Need to figure out if i should get a bending kit just for my mobo area. I'm pretty sure i could make it all work with just a cutting/reamer kit, and some angles.
Anyway, i guess i'm just babbling and thinking out loud now...
That's what's going on right now though.
After i make my decision, it'll be my mobo all rigged up in acrylic, connected to QDC's, and have everything not attached to my mobo connected to my EK ZMT Tubing.
Edit: And then when i'm finished modding my chassis i'll be using acrylic to connect everything. I'm even considering going with 16mm tubing for everything not attached to my mobo. But all that will come later....
Update: 2nd 290x is back from RMA =)
Now i have 2 untested 290x's, a mobo with all my blocks connected, and no way to connect the ports
