Yes

No, you only need to install the tubing on the barb of the fitting and secure everything with the compression ring (hand tight only).

You GPU should come with 2 stop plugs for the unused ports on the terminal thumb.gif

So, I was looking to do a similar build, only attaching two Seahawks to a Predator 360; mainly because the first pre-filled water block I saw for the GTX 10 series card specifically stated it was incompatible with the HB SLI bridge. I thought that if there was a way to put both cards in a loop with a single 360, that I could then put the CPU on a separate cooler. Looking again, it seems that EKWB has put out a water block for the Strix that will work with the new HB SLI bridges...

Will a single 360 be enough to cool a 6900K and two GTX 1080's? If so, I can just go with whichever card has a pre-filled waterblock that supports the new HB SLI.

Are there specific QDC's needed if one wanted or needed a separate Predator to cool GPU's without the CPU in the loop? I was having a difficult time finding the correct quick disconnect part on the EKWB site.

Any info or thoughts welcome, just putting together some thoughts for an SLI build with 1080's (if and when I can find them) - not married to any idea in particular, though I haven't done a custom cooling setup before - I do like the look and ease of use of the Predator series from EKWB.

Am I the only one that's a little concerned about Goldendarkness1's upcoming venture?

Glue?

Should work, but don't exspect super low temperatures or near silent operation. The fans will have to move some air to cool that hardware.

I'd get a case that supports two 360s or at least a 240 and a 360 and I'd remove the CPU block from the 360 and use the two prefilled 1080 blocks with QDCs on the 360 then have the other 240 or 360 just for the CPU. I know it's a pain to drain the first 360 but I wouldn't advice two GPUs and a CPU on one 360. redface.gif

Edit: That's what I'm going to do with my two Titan X's when I can get a second 240 or 360. biggrin.gif

You must also remember that you will have to ditch the quick disconnect on the Predator since you won't have a pair on your GPU block to interconnect everything.

Either that or just add the qdc adapters yourself? I take it these are the same size?

Thanks guys! Definitely will give what you've said a good think and do some more reading before I start ordering parts. Like I mentioned, I haven't picked up anything yet, so I think I can leave the EK provided QDC in the loop if I take KedarWolf's advice and use EKWB's pre-filled water blocks for whichever one will allow for use of the HB SLI bridge.

From what I've been reading, it doesn't seem to matter much which GTX 1080 I put under water with a pre-filled block. I was looking at the Seahawks just because I really liked their aesthetics and the fact that I could later incorporate them into a custom loop if I wanted to - might still give that a ride. Losing the QDC if I have an isolated loop for my GPU's isn't really a show stopper for me, I was thinking I'd need to fit a tube with a QDC if I was keeping the card and CPU on the same cooler.

Thanks so much for the parts links Jedi - it will definitely help with planning. I'd really like to get this right in one without having to redo or change plans midstream, so definitely going to do some more reading. It seems like I have some time since no one is carrying the 1080s at the moment anyway, lol.

For reference, I am planning on going with a CaseLabs Merlin SM8 - should have plenty of room for future modding and tons of radiator space. It's definitely on the expensive side, but I like the idea that it very well might be the last case I ever need buy...

I'll keep you guys posted.

Those are the larger NS6 (better flow though), you need the NS4 if you want an exact replacement.

Ah, my mistake. Of course they wouldn't use the ones with better flow by default ;) Kappa

Wait a minute i got those. They should be able to connect with the ns4 on the predator since they have the same couple and barb size right?
EDIT: http://www.cpcworldwide.com/Product-List/Product/489 and http://www.cpcworldwide.com/Product-List/Series/23?Category=44&Product=487

http://www.cpcworldwide.com/Product-List/Product/1679 and http://www.cpcworldwide.com/Product-List/Series/21?Category=44&Product=475

They seem to have the same exact dimensions with diferent amounts of spillage, so it should be fine probably.
