Hey there, Good luck with this. Subbed as well.

I am planning something very similar to you. Have ordered a Mercury S5 and have been waiting about 3-4 weeks now. At least the longer I am forced to wait, the more chance some tasty components I am hoping to hit the market will actually be released after announcement:
1) Asus X99-M WS
2) Seasonic Titantium 850W PSU
3) Samsung SM951 NVMe (although I think this might not be compatible with the Asus...)

Anyways regarding your cooling options, I think that the best solution of the ones you presented is also Option B with the 120.3 in the top. That will be about 60% more powerful at cooling than the 120.2 solution (Option 1) and even higher efficiency compared to the 2x 120.1 solution (Option 3)

The picture you quoted me on reminds me; I need to figure out how to disguise or, even better, eliminate the colors behind the fans. Its not an issue in the pictures because it is disguised by the blades, but when spinning, the green, black, yellow and blue cables will be visible and I'm not sure if i want them to be..

Those wires are in there using a slot in the back of the frame.



You can slide the wires out by sliding them back and forth carefully, and, wella!



Now you can do what you need to do...

Thanks for the sub man, smile.gif I"m also keeping an eye out for the ASUS board; I"d take ASUS over EVGA for a motherboard, just because of the bios.

I"m worried that the sleeving will obstruct the movement of the fan blades.

Don't sleeve it...

My thought was that you could shrink wrap it, you know, practice on some old wires and see how it goes! thumb.gif

Then again, from the looks of my fan, I think you could sleeve it, seems like there's enough room to me.

You have nothing to loose!

Ok guys, Sorry for the lack of updates, but it'll be worth it.

I went to California for a week, shadowing my older brother at his work for a week. I learned a metric *****load of stuff about GPUs. I also got some parts
What I got for the build;

STORAGE
2x 1TB seagate barracuda HDDs

RADIATORS
1x 480mm EKWB radiator
1x black ice GT gen two stealth 360mm radiator
1x 240mm EKWB radiator

FITTINGS
2x koolance quick detach things
8x 45 degree (fittings?)
6x bitspower compression fittings
?x barb fittings
1x SLI fitting thing
1x CPU block (looks cool, nice n simple but brand is unknown.)
100+x screws and o-rings

GPUs (NOT FOR THE BUILD)
2x GTX 480s (watercooled, looks like they have EKWB waterblocks. I'm gonna OC the crap oudda these things)


I'm not actually going to put the 480 in the build (it wont fit), I'll put it into another rig.


A little dusty, the 240mm rad loks 20x worse on the other side.





If anyone can identify what CPU cooler this is, that would be great.


A bit scratched, but I can polish it up.














Barb fittings. I'm not sure how I like the look of the clamps on them, I'm feeling ballsy anyways.. tongue.gif






Parts list updated.
