Almost all pics I see with the mcp655 have the pump not in that space corsair has made for pumps where the psu is.

so does it not fit in there?

if not this will make me rethink my build

I had the 655 down there and it was a pain im my ass to feed it up to the main compartment. So I got an 5.25 bay res with a 355 and couldn't be happier

had a hard time because?

because you didn't like extra hose length or they didn't fit through those holes well or was it the angle and if so could that have been fixed with a different pump top and some rotating connections?

i will have an i7(later i9) and 2 5970's(later 2 fermi's) on one loop so i definitely will need the flow that the 655 provides.

I didn't like it because my pump with a custom top and 1/2 barbs wouldn't fit properly in the bottom chamber.

A i7/i9 along side 2x 5970/fermis on a single loop with all parts internally is not going to happen. Your going to need two separate loop imo. Your going to have to mod the case and add a 240 rad at the bottom. So you'll have one 360 up top and a 240 at the bottom. 360 for the gpu's and the 240 for the cpu. Fill in your parts profile so we can help you out more. Go into your user CP and add in your specs

my pc is 8 years old, i have a small pile of new hardware and more on the way, i likely won't be be actually building the machine until i9/fermi drop.

purchased so far: gigabyte x58a-ud7, 12gb mushkin blackline, 4x120gb vertex turbo ssd
purchased but not arrived: obsidian 800d, mcp655with ek rev2 top, pa120.3

i know i may seem uniformed trying to cram everything on one loop and believe me i never would have thought of it except this guy: http://www.overclock.net/ati/623682-...-quadfire.html

2 hot 5970's and an i7 and his temps are fine and he's using the hardware i planned to use for just my gpus, crazy!

edit: sorry just wanted to add i will NOT be going for big overclocks water for me is 100% about quiet, any modest overclocks are just a bonus

The MCP355 would be better suited to your loop, it works very well with loads of blocks in a single loop. If you did that, you could get an XSPC bay res that can take an MCP355 inside it then stick a 240 rad down below where that hdd bay is which you can remove. Then you can go res -> 240 -> gpu1 -> mobo -> 360 -> cpu -> gpu2 -> res

Fill in your sig with the rig you are building (go to usercp -> systems).

This is my first post on this forum. I am in the process up upgrading to a Core i7 920 with an ASUS P6X58D motherboard and 3x GTX280's in a Tri-SLI setup. The CPU and GPU's will be water cooled. I was going to use my existing case but after reading about the Corsair Obsidian and discovering this discussion thread, I have decided to get the case. Damn you Corsair for making an awesome case!!

But I do have a question. My current radiator is an older Thermochill 120.3 with older 24mm spacing. I know this will not fit with the Obsidian but I plan to mount it in the case using only the holes for the center fan. I will be upgrading to a Feser X-Changer 360 in the future. Will this be enough radiator for my setup? If not, I am thinking of adding a Feser 140mm radiator to the rear 140mm exhaust fan. What do you think?

Thanks.

Definitely not enough. That would just about handle one overclocked gpu and an overclocked i7 if you want reasonable temperatures. I would hate to see the temps on that loop if you put 3 280s in.You would get better temps on air! If you are not afraid of modding and don't need the hdd space, you can remove the lower hdd cage and fit a 240 rad down there.

If you don't want to mod it, then i would personally suggest getting the TJ07 instead of the 800D. You can fit a quad in the bottom by drilling a few mounting holes, a dual up top with no modding at all, and if you are a brave you can fit another dual down below alongside the quad.
