I've never seen someone paint the PCB like that either... I'm along for the ride.

I have the same case but went the skylake route. I imagine you got those Sandisk 960's during the newegg deal ? It was to late for me when i went to pull the trigger they where sold out. Good work so far but its going to be a tight fit trying to full WC in this case your basically stuck going with a 35mm rad with fans to still have a little clearance above the mobo. If your gpu is 2 long you wont have enough room to mount a pump but GL.

Yeah i got two 960's for $199 each during black friday.

The are some challanges with this case.

First the Seasnic White Snow 1050 Psu doesnt fit so i had to drill the psu to make two more holes since the case support only SFX PSU and the most powerfull its only 800 watt . if im going dual gpu in one single pcb in the future like the nano x2 or gtx 980 ti x2 then the 800 watt PSu will not be enough.This is why i drill the psu creating two more thread. The only thing is that i lost 2 sata connection since there is no much space but i dont care biggrin.gif i have enough sata connection For 3 more hdd.

Second issue is the radiator. I try to find a 360 radiator less then 300 mm long but seems it doesnt exist so i have to stick with dual rad of max 38mm thick or install the rad outside which im not willing to do.

The Third challange like you said its the pump with the reservoir since the gtx 980 ti its very long and a d5 pump-combo res will not fit.

Like i said i will build a powefull system watercooled with some overclocking possibility no matter what. thumb.gif

Will come up with a solution soon.

I am also still thinking about water cooling in this case just for the challenge, here are some of my thoughts. You have the option of going with a Swiftech Apogee 2 with a MCP35X built in. This will free up room but then you would need a rad with a fill port to pre fill the rad as you prime the look to capacity or have a mini res located elsewhere in the case. But the if you wanted to drain the loop you would have to remove the top to drain the radiator. The next option as we both mentioned is to go with a shorter GPU and you should have plenty of room for a Mini Res/D5 or another combo.

That's an interesting solution. Not a big fan of pump / block combos, but for you situation it may be your best option.

Your solution is interesting but i already find a way to fit all the components i want inside.

I will install a bitspower 150 reservoir and d5 pump in front of the gpu by lifting the gpu slot by 2 inch that way the reservoir its not covering the view of the gtx 980 and i have planty of space.

To fit the 150 res i need to cut more then half of the gpu Bracket which is not a big deal.

As you know the gpu slot can be lifted by 5 mm but still cover the view of the gpu.

To fix that i will drill two more holes in order to lift the gpu slot more that way the reservoir doesnt cover the gpu.

If you planning to install a res remeber the you can fit a 100 res between the two bracket of the gpu slot.

Will post some pics this days so its more clear for the ones following this thread.
