Can't wait to see a more diverse range of L1.0 builds as they spread out across the world.
I'm currently going back and forth between multiple cases the L1.0, the M1.0, the hexgear R80 and the caselabs series
right now my cooling performance is ok and my system is pretty quiet... but you always have that what if itch... and right now if I go for the M1.0 I can keep what I have possibly and not need to buy more rads (right now two alphacool XT45 rads 360 and 240). Not sure how well the pump res combo I have would fit on the back side though.
but.... if I go L1.0 I have plenty of room without being cramped and can add those extra rads which in theory would get me a bit cooler (not to mention the extra air flow).
It looks like you used a single D5 with all of that correct? How high up did you have to turn the pump to get through all the blocks and rads? How did your temps look? Any OC on the CPU or vid cards? I'll be taking the guts of the system in my sig and transferring it over
kind of like you did
