Those EK blocks look great, you should be getting a little better temps on your cpu at idle with all that rad, but your loud temps look about right.
Wire management on the Sniper is pretty good, remember there is a lot of space between bottom of the case and the bezel same up top.
Again great job!!

TY.


I just ordered a mcp655 and the xspc res to fit it in. Also I have 6 more gentle typhoons to mount too when I get home from vacation. 2 to finish up the external rad to make it completely push/push, and four to make the upper rad completely push pull with the GTs. Right now the upper rad is just in pull with some crappy fans I had laying around. I am hoping that the added fans and the better pump will improve my cpu temps.

Quick question, I am pretty sure I know the answer but want to be 100% sure. In the pic below of my incoming res, which is the inlet and which is the outlet fitting on the res?

Ya, I have never owned an ASUS mobo, and I drooled a bit too when I unpacked the sabertooth. Highly recommended in terms of build quality and overclock-ability.

Inlet is always in the center. Discharge is at the sides. Good build. Great loop

You could consider doing a mod to the rear 360 to brace it up on the lower side.

Nothing a little creativity and some rivets can't fix.

I am on vacation at my parents house. Yet, I decided to upgrade my pump. I had the pump/res, a couple fans, and some sleeving sent to their house so that I could get to work. The following is what I was able to do here -

I started by sleeving my fans. First up I needed to take the plug off-

fans3.jpg

Once that was off, I was able to able to slide the sleeving and heat shrink over the wires. Here is the plug side all done -

fans6.jpg

And the fans side -

fans5.jpg

One done, time for the next one -

fans1n.jpg

Got the fans done, now it was time to start installing and sleeving the pump -

pump2.jpg

Got the pump all sleeved -

Then it was time to sleeve the LED. Before -

After-

Next, it was time to put the pump in the res -

All done with everything-

More updates and plans for when I get home from vacation.

I just ordered the sleeving in the pic below last night. I plan on removing 2 pci-e power and 1 sata power wire clusters from the PSU. Then I will sleeve the entire PSU and all wires coming from the case input/output.

Also, I have decided to further mod my case to allow better air flow to and from the upper 240 rad. It just so happens that I got a Home Depot gift card for X-Mas. biggrin.gif I will use it to get a dremel so that I can cut out the sections of the case as described in the pics below. I am starting to really miss my build and can't wait to get home to continue on it.

Great setup and great pictures (first post btw).
I am looking at this board and I have 1 question are all your slots taken up with the SLI 2 6870? it looks like you have a slot available up top I have the Fatality SB sound card and was wondering if it would fit with the SLI bridge?

Thanks for taking the time to post up pics good inspiration. Good look with the cleanup and sleeving.
