Cheers, worked out how to do this with reference 1080 and gigabyte versions, so hopefully see more smile.gif

The front rad is pulling cold air from the front, and the rear rad is also pulling in cold air into the case, so the two top WingBoost fans are exhausting the hot air, along with the 970s smile.gif
Such get the coldest water temp possible this way as well as have positive pressure in the case for dust

First few pics i did have it the other way just for spacing but all swapped around now smile.gif

More DSLR snaps and edits to replace the above phone snap and of a few parts smile.gif

Some of the plumbing



Drain port is at the back, if I was to attach it to the pump outlet, wouldn't of been at the lowest point and I think would of made a clean curve from the pump to the GPU untidy and bulky, and not wishing to attach to GPU ports as to weigh the card down.
Case should be able to lay on its spine and be the lowest point and drain out- whilst hopefully looking clean and flowing lines.

As with all the builds i've done, Hue+ & Grid as standard. Torn as to how to do the lighting for final pics =/ I do have LEDS on order for the Res and Vortex being White, might do the CPU in blue.



Will be routing some of the Tubing, the Rad to Res will be changed with the twin 45 on the inlet port going to the right then up, aligns it up much better and should sit flush with Rad. Hoping even though this isnt Hard Line, it can just look as good.
Also thinking Twin 45 at the inlet of the RAD- might allow a smoother run from the CPU outlet to it- unsure though
Hue strips installed, one for each edge and not viable so should tone the brightness a bit until NZXT adds DIM ability to the CAM software (is planned).
I have a clear hard Sli connection for the cards (2 slot), which may fit from outlet on the bottom to inlet of the top- would match the colour flow of the blue on the cards and help with flow- or holding my breath for the GPX 2 slot SLi plexi to come back in stock from alphacool... wishing i got it when i had the chance really
Pump also turned down from highest setting (5) to 4.



Just had a thought about attaching a Hue strip to the back edge of the GPUs, you wouldnt see the strips but would add a glow behind the cards against the mobo- what do you think? As im not doing the LED in the fan housing like the ASUS cards, didnt really come out as well and dont think the blue would shine as good inside the all black casing

I wanted to have the Grid+ just above the Res so its visible, only problem is the power connectors and USB stick out quiet a bit and clash with the res holder, which is bolted to the case so cant really move it. Tried placement at the bottom but looks untidy so will have to go at the back =/

Maybe you could just stick the Hue+ into place with double sided tape? Might help you position it so it doesn't interfere with the res holder.

Hue+ is mounted to the HDD rack and the Grid has been stuck to the back, near the cable run to keep it tidy biggrin.gif

on a separate note. Just seen Galax's range of DDR4 (Geil) and U.2/M.2/PCIe SSDs.... would look amazing with a Sabertooth board with mobo block in a In Win 303.. maybe next build biggrin.gif

Managed to sort our rhe tubing better , top left is older version



Second card underway, slightly misses the cut :/

managed to grab some quick snaps on my phone of the second Heatsink sitting within the Shroud to show it being cut down to fit as well as lining bolting mounts to get the shroud to be mated to the sink

Very nice, almost looks like it was supposed to fit in there.

Btw how's the contact between the blocks and the finned heat sink this time around, or are they still the same ones as on your previous turbo build?

better then the Turbo ones, with one of them making hardly any contact at all. Did do 4 small drops in the corners though to help out.
This card wasn't done as nice as the First so the port holes had to be cut to open them out and the sink was cut a bit short/long in places. But least its all done now.
Just have to cable it all together and sort out the plumbing ! few LEDs on the way for the CPU, Res and Vortex parts (BLUE/CLEAR/BLUE)

Should be fun when the GTX 1070s come out, specially if MSI/Galax do reference boards with their own blowers, will be doing the same thing biggrin.gif
