For such a big case it's sure starting to feel small. My dreams of dual reservoir are surely dead. Even fitting one big one might prove to be a challenge.
Here's a potential layout using my bitspower multi z 50 res mounted on top of my pump. I'm not totally thrilled with it, I really wanted to have a pipe going between the top ports of the two rads, but not sure that is possible.
Welcome to my world
that's exactly what I meant that it's too compact for my taste.
I went for a Mercury S8, and even that feels small, I had to get the Pedestal, and even with that, It still lacked the extra space I thought I had... so Now i'm debating if I should get an extra Pedestal, or get an extra S8 case instead.
Same idea I wanted to get double Reservoir, it's just so nice both visually and for actual re-fill times.
I'm going SLI, so that's more heat, and that means more Radiators, and I wanted a large RAID for all my games (a little over 3TB), and that's where my plan fell sort, the front space I thought it existed, was actually not there, as the Pumps took the space I originally planned for the RAID cage, so.. now I have to figure out another place to mount the Pumps, to be able to keep the front 240mm Radiator and the RAID cage where I originally planned to keep them.
worse case scenario, I'll just have to ditch the front 240mm rad, but I rather not.
Anyway... Back on topic..
The sketched up pipe work seems like a natural good flow.
It's clean and simple enough for PETG tubes, and even easier if you go with soft tubes.
