Trying to find the best routing for the tubing, I'm having some trouble considering both rads are in p/p so it doesn't leave many options for the top rad or the pump. This is the best I've come up with using an old "sketch" of the build layout, only difference is that the res is now a EK X-Res 250. I'm not sure if I'll be able to route the tubing into the back side of the case at the top because the port on the rad doesn't quite line up with that opening in the case like I'd hoped it would in the sketch.

Is it also alright for the pump to handle that long of an upward travel?

Yes i think so, here is picture of mine case with 480 ut60 and ek xt360 rads on the bottom. Not sure about top rad, but probably it will fit.

I did it with my build and it works. I'm using a D5 vario pump. I had to go to at least 3 to get it to pump all the way up though. I've kept it at full power and it does just fine.

Well, I was at a loose end today (had the day booked off work to work on another project but I'm still waiting on key stuff arriving...) so I went looking for something to tinker with.

Found these guages from an old project car and it turns out that making them do something useful wasn't too difficult. (the motor takes a 0-5VDC input if you bypass the controller board so turning that into 0-12VDC and driving it from a fan header was elementary).



Ignore the scratches, I haven't peeled the protective film off the acrylic yet.

Thoughts?

Is that a 200mm res?

Holy tons of wires batman. How is the scaling with the 4 gpus with that motherboard? Most usually go with a x79 for quad

Not really a loss since most good x79 setup runs 16x/8x/8x/8x, where I'm running 8x/8x/8x/8x. It would be marginal loss since I'm already at pcie 3.0 and I mainly game and don't care for benching. I haven't actually tested in games yet since I have just barely configured my 5x1 Eyefinity setup. I haven't gotten the cpu overclocked again (became unstable once I installed a new Logitech keyboard). From what Tahit owners told me and I've read, 2-3 way scaling is pretty good and some games do take advantage of the 4th. But, what's becoming more evident from 3-4 way crossfire/sli owners, once you start pushing extreme resolutions (=/> 4k), that 3rd and/or 4th card really help out more then say a single screen or triple 1080/1200 setups .
Sadly, I'm selling my 900D since i found a CaseLabs TH10 frown.gif. Since my desk now occupies five monitors, there's no space for a case on top so its been relegated below. TH10 gives me some extra room (go-fig 900D seems small, ??? tongue.gif) for the hardware I'm running.

You will enjoy that TH10... I reallllly wanted to go caselab's, but the budget @ the time didn't allow for it. I'm still regretting not coughing up the extra 200$... Maybe next time!
