^^^Go for a rad that has 6-32 screws like XSPC (RX480/EX480). I know DD gives you longer 6-32 screws to compensate for the thickness of the panels. If you need some longer M3, M4, or 6-32 screws, go to mcmastercarr.com. The thickness of the panels should be ~ 9.5mm/3/8".

ya bought the sr1, which gives roughly 4.5mm to work with.

10mm panel, 7mm phobya gasket, 25mm fan = 42mm, so theoretically the m4x45mm screws i bought should work.

currently with my 360 gts ive got m4x40mm screws with washers as they were 1 or 2mm too long.
had to take a couple trips to the local ace hardware but i found everything sonic.gif

fedex just called confirming delivery tomorrow thumb.gif
can't wait

The SR1 has two different gaps/plenums. The side with the ports has the traditional 5mm gap until you hit the fins/channels. The other side has a little over 10mm. I bought some 45mm long screws and that was enough since I had grills and I used some black oxide washers to reduce the length. i had a nasty situation where I punctured a brand new RX480 frown.gif. Learned my lesson and I always try to minimize the screw going into the rad.

Unfortunately, no one told me that xspc includes 6-32 x 30mm screws. These are extremely hard to find, and the closest size is 1-1/4" long screws. This was just a tad long and it punctured my rad. Very expensive mistake frown.gif. I'm glad DD/HW use M4 screws which is no challenge in finding different metric screw lengths thumb.gif

I got some hex socket ss screws and some black-oxide m4 washers to compliment and reduce a bit the screw length for the rads.

Will update pictures once the backplates get back in stock for the 7970 at frozencpu and I order one. But for now, this is how the build originally looked with the Radeon 6xxx card. I have since cleaned up the tube routing near the CPU block and cleaned up the cathode wiring.

Wow, that is smexy! Question, why two reservoirs? You could easily mount the pummp below the tube res to feed it directly. Looks like you have a D5 pump?

Thanks. I did the two reservoirs for fun/challenge, but I don't really have any other reason besides that. Basically, I wanted to see if I could pull off having two reservoirs while still keeping a decent flow, so far the D5 doesn't seem to be having any problems keeping up. We'll see if I am still singing that tune once I throw another GPU block into the mix, haha.

your case looks great man.

i found the d5 monsoon bay res was extremely loud in my tower 26, you don't??? =\

i ended up ditching it and pickin up a pump top and rad res.

I've got some new tubing on the way to play with, and then i need to trim my motherboard's thermal armor so it fits with the waterblock.

Overall pretty happy with the way it sits. It's extremely quiet (hurray shoggy) and stays very cool.

Nope, the res/pump is near silent. Cannot hear it above slow yates. Sure you didn't tighten the back too tight and cause the pump internals to rub against the reservoir housing?
