dont forget fans.

i see that your going to be using an armor which is nice, since its a huge
case, you wont have much room to have internal rads besides the front and
top area, but thats not a problem you can just mount the rad externally
you need to thinking about pump placement, res placement, how to drain the
system, how to fill the system and efficiency

heres a pic of how i was going to mount my 360GTX in my armor



you have to either remove or cut the top support beam and remove
the first 3 bays. then you could mount it right there. you would have
to modify your side panel of course, i planned to get a solid side panel
and get it laser cutted but plans changed.

good luck

lol I wasn't havin a rant, I just totally objected to what you suggested

In reality 2x D5's in a CPU loop IS totaly overkill, the main reason you'd run pumps in series is in case one dies. The D5 is known for being a workhorse of a pump so I wouldn't really say its needed.

Why do you like the 480GTX's better than PA rads?

Fitting 3 EK 150's reservoirs along with 2/3 480GTX rads, 4 D5 pumps, 3x GTX's and 8 waterblocks is hardly going to be "easy" to fit and plumb in in a sensible manner.

I have seen the thread you are refering to on XS and IIRC the outcome was the the NF4.1 might fit but it won't allow tri-sli.

The only blocks I know of that DO allow it are:
ViperJohn's
Andreoid & Finn's block
Watercool NSB-13?

As for Mofset location 2, the current EK 680i block doesn't fit the 780i however I am told that Eddy is working on it.

My 2 cents anyway, but like I said I wasn't ranting, your setup just seemed unpractical for someone new to WC.

I wouldn't WC anything but the CPU and GPU...Put some HSF's on the rest...

I would for sure build it yourself rather then a kit, you can get better parts for the same $$$...


CPU...Custom.Stinger WB..Commercial.. FuZion CPU Block..I'd use a back-plate on it to..Dtek FuZion Intel 775 Pro-Mount set...You might want to grab a nozzle kit to ....D-Tek FuZion Accelerator Nozzle Kit.

Pump...D-5.

Rad...GTX360..With these fans..86cfm Pana...And a shroud..

Res..DD 5 1/4" Bay Reservoir..Or just use a t-line...

Tubing...You use it on 1/2" barbs, it fits tighter is more compact and will flow about as well...

Clamps or zip-ties...

Stuff you might like to read and I'll leave you my cleaning PDF also...Take your time buying parts, read all the stickies here also...

hmm haven't I seen this post before? : - )

I think IRA's suggestions are the best. I would do a T-line though, but then again I care about cost. The Vendor Rep is also reasonable, the person recommending a 240 for the MB doesn't know what he is talking about. Also I would have to say that the fusion seems to be the overwhelming favorite cpu block for water coolers.


Also, I would keep noise in mind, especially if I had a huge budget like you do. If you think noise doesn't matter buy a vantec tornado fan, you will change your mind like I did. I would look at the S-Flex F fan (~72 cfm Newegg has 'em) if I were you.
Quote:
Scythe S-Flex F 1600RPM - S-FDB bearings kick ass. Very, very little extraneous noise, relatively inexpensive, no positional oddities like sleeves, and fairly well sealed. They also don't have the radiator slow-down that the Minebeas exhibit. But they're also not empirically as good in open air. However, the entire S-Flex range is among my favorites. Very, very good fans that don't make extraneous noises nor cost an a lot.

There are a few very knowledgeable guys in the WC section like Ira and Martin that will give you invaluable advice.

You wont regret buying individual parts...I even managed it.
