Is your card still the same MSI 980 in your rigbuilder? Because I do see a full cover block on EK for it actually.

A secondary question that the above is, how easy would it be to refill the system, and with no visible reservoir window, how would I know when the loop is full? Just keep filling until it overflows? Also, what does EK recommend filling the Predator with?

Going with a custom setup with 2 Predators isn't easy to refill so I would suggest that you indeed add a tube reservoir to your setup.

Also, the coolant included in the Predator is : EK-Ekoolant EVO CLEAR

How much better is the Predator 240 vs H110i GTX?

I'm reading 4-5c. Is that all?

Somewhere around there....provided the absolute only thing you are looking at is peak temps, and you don't bother with things like the difference in noise, expandability, the fact that it can be maintained rather than disposed of, the fact that the H110i is a larger unit....you know, little things like that.

No doubt it's more versatile and surely better built too. Just curious on performance. I have a h110i gtx and I'm rather disappointed.

I thought maybe upgrading to this would do the trick so-to-speak.

Where are you guys seeing that 4-5 °C improvement over the 280mm CLC? I had it every so slightly behind the H110i GT at max thermal dissipation myself. Even EK's own testing had the Corsair units outperforming it. Note that the H110i and H115i use faster speed 140mm fans so it was expected, despite the aluminum and weaker pump.

I have seen it go both ways in reviews. I didn't do full testing on the Predator 240 myself, only a comparison with the Swiftech H220-X. Doing a little if A>C by 5, and A>B by 2, then B>C by 3...... Essentially, when I tested the Predator was behind the Swiftech by a couple of degrees, and in previous tests the Swiftech brushed off the H110I GT (and X61...which is essentially an H110i GTX without the ridiculously loud fans) with ease. My thoughts on it were extrapolations.

You need prefilled waterblocks with the QDCs for the Predator. 3 more Vadar fans might improve cooling a bit when mounting them in a push/pull configuration.
