I've got a SLI rig, and would love to put in a custom loop, but never done one before. I'd read that one 240mm rad may be insufficient for CPU and SLI. Have you experience of this? Would be interested to see how it all works out and temps achieved... Photos would be cool too as it will be a squeeze in this case.
Enjoy and good luck.

I'll actually be squeezing in two 240mm radiators biggrin.gif

Well that should do the trick. 👌
Make sure you post some build photos. Front window view is always nice, but I'm always fascinated to see how the custom loops work round the back too with the pump / res etc...

To be honest... I'm curious how I'm going to run it too... but once I get my stuff in the tower and mocked up, I'll have a better idea of how to proceed

^^ Forget the door panel, my 980ti Strix is sticking out like heck! But I love the open setup with no door panel, Plus I can always add a custom one in the near future, since my Rig runs pretty cool I'll wait on my 384Q monitor to come out and see how that goes,

Yea.. looks like the narrowest one I can see on newegg is a gigabyte model... but it's tough to find specs on the PCB alone

The graphics cards pcbs are all same size, excluding cards like evga classified, msi lightning, Galax HOF and other 2x or 3x bios cards, because they are all made for ln2 or at least custom watercooled.
Considering only the normal cards, what changes the card size is the stock cooler.
post #2147 of 3666
Waterblock's ports typically stick out above its top edge, so it's the ports that are going to interfere with the door. Unless there's a waterblock with ports that stick right from the card's side? Is that even possible?
post #2148 of 3666
The only EK waterblocks I can see that would fit with the window on would be the reference cards as the EK blocks have ports coming straight up instead of the side (makes the card wider). Unfortunately EK don't publish the sizes of their blocks so it's a guess.

Most custom loops I have seen go without the window or modify it. Or check Tbones 'Hydra' on page 208. He has a Ti reference card with the window on and it looks great.

ie

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90


and

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

researched, CSQ is simply the normal block minus the block there... so after all is said and done, if I do go SLI in the future, the CSQ and the normal copper/acetal version will require the same space from mobo tray to window.

Looks like I just choose a reference design I like, buy a block, and figure out how to get it to fit when it arrives. tongue.gif

Actually i'm using my watercooled Msi gtx 970 gaming 4g with the window panel and no mods.
The inlet/outlet waterblock touch the window, but can be closed without problems.
