Edit: Can we get a better, clearer pic of the top from the front and back?

Thank you, sure.

Change all the PWM hubs to Aqua Computer Splitty9's and got some of the cable routing sorted out in the back of the build.

Installed the fittings for the drain system for the lower radiators. 2 M/M Bitspower rotary's, Barrow 3-way pass thru and a Bitspower mini valve.

I'm at a stand still waiting on the EK monoblock in black. Once that is available can get this wrapped up.

Well, I ended up not liking the way the drain came out for the bottom rads after mocking up the tubes, so figured out another way to drain the coolant where the level will be below the bottom inlet.

I am going to stick with the 2 mini valves off the reservoirs to get most of it. To help drain off the remaining coolant for the GPU loop that drops into the bottom rad I will remove one stop fitting off the top GPU card and drop in a small tube with a large syringe attached. This will allow me to then attach my large drain tube and get the rest once I have it drained at a good level.

I knew it was going to be a pain in the ass to drain the bottom radiators completely dry but this is the work around I am going with. This way can use a single 90 rotary fitting there which looks so much better.

Link to drain syringe in case others may find it helpful:

Incredible job on this build so far! I really like the blue fittings.thumb.gif You could cool a small nuclear power plant with what you have planned...LOL! I just stumbled upon my SM8 and we share a lot of the same hardware. I am interested in how you are going to plumb the mono block and gpu blocks. I am debating on separate loops as the Titan XP's get hot (and loud on air). Not expecting too much heat from the R5E10 mono block but I am looking forward to your feedback. Your build is so nice you make me wish I would have held out for a THW10. Next time...

Thank you for kind words.

Monoblock wont be shipping until Oct 17th sadly I am still designing the loop unsure until I get everything mounted to see what I like best. I am likely going to install everything this weekend and temporarily use a EVO CPU block to get me up and running then swap to the monoblock in few weeks.

Working on the loop config, have made several different iterations but this was the cleanest so far (at least IMHO). Also the shortest path except for the CPU outlet line to the upper radiator, it looked really awful going vertical from monoblock it created sorta of a stair case design since the CPU outlet off the pump is bent a few times. Obviously it wont be as long as it looks in the mock up but gives an idea of direction..

The other thing, the CPU line coming off the reservoir if I go straight up and over it crosses the GPU reservoir return line and that looked weird too.

In any event, curious what you guys think..

Option 1


Option 2

This is a pass thru design coming off the reservoir then thru the back of the case and coming out on the left side of the GPU return line at the top of the left reservoir return tube. A bit longer of a tube run but looks very clean.

To me, I say option 2 will look my symmetrical
