Monstrous! I7 Build. - Page 4

post #31 of 36
Any full tower will allow that. Especially some of these newr ones like the 800D and the new Lian Li Case with 11 pci slots! I don't think that you will need 2 bays, but you could keep it a single loop and just use 2 90* angles, One going down one up and then a small piece of tubing to connect them and bam! 2 resvoirs single loop! but you should have the pump pull from the bottom one. I wouldn't reccomend that because of the restrictions and practically lack of water flow between the two but if you insist on 2 resvoir bays.

Future goals are to QuadSLI (580 OR 480) and eventually jump to the 980x...so, I really want to kick open my options.

I'm definitely getting a DangerDen Dual case...Double Wide Black.

This way eventually when I do expand and have the entire system under water, everything can be kept under a 5c delta.

For example, I could drop a 480 on the front, right side panel and the 360 I currently have above the PSU...

This means that the quad SLI would be dealt with by the 480 and the MB/Processor by the 360...

Current price list:

DD Case: 450$
EK Classy 3 block: 125$
XSPC 480 rad: 120$
Swiftech 655 var pump: 100$
Couple fittings: 75$
New Tubing: 25$

Hope to be done by xmass

When you say a couple fittings I hope you mean compression fittings? Don't want to have a great build and slack on the fitings and have future issues etc. If you really want to have this set up for the future then you will need the MCP 355 with aftermarket top. Having 2 radiators and multiple blocks will give quite a bit of restriction, the 355 with after market top will be better because give more pressure for those restrictions. Other then that it looks like it will be pretty nice! Any idea on a color scheme?

This is the second time people have pointed me towards the 355s...Hrm.

That setup would be a bit more expensive but, would 2x355's really be better due to the pressure?

I get very good deals on XSPC stuff so, I was actually thinking of the dual bay resi + slot for the 355's and just going that way because from what I've heard, the flow is the same as it would be with aftermarket tops etc...

For color, it's tough because I've gone all red//black to this point but, I think I can knock something REALLY nice out with the new case...However, I'm very partial to the R4 fans.

REALLY loving the push and how well they're doing with the 360...I've heard they're better pulling through the rad and that's what most data (Skinnee) suggests so, I'll definitely be doing that in the long run.

Hrm, the dual 355's really gets me thinking, though.

I think that dual 355's is a bit much, but hey, i cant speak about overkill seeing as how I have 2 gpus to a sr1 560 and a cpu/mobo to a sr1 560 lol. If you go with the dual 355's, then get the Ek DDC Dual Pump top. their dual pumps are better the the XSPC ones I believe. But at same time if you get deals on the XSPC then go that way, isn't too much of a difference. I am doing a red black theme to mine as well, evga classified 4 way sli and red bellatix ram with RedUV Primochill and couple red led fans on bottom to make a red GLow upwards! I like the red black personally lol. Just make sure have a side window to admire it from!
