I get the joke but it falls apart when you look at the Vapor-X cards... Plenty of air cooling potential.

Hawaii is the new GTX 480 tongue.gif. We'll get a cooler version with PI, a'la GTX 580 smile.gif.








The great thing about CL is the amount of customization you can do directly from them. So you can essentially turn what's basically an awesome wc box into a double-duty air case as well. Personally, with a dual fan cooler gpu, I would get the ventilated panel/door to let the gpu(s) breathe as best as possible.

It helps stabilize it by spreading the load on a wider area. Less potential to tip over. Plus the protruding portion can help leave a gap w/ the call and allow the exhaust from the fans to meet less resistance.

Yeah the temps on my air cooled 280x are about 2C warmer with the windowed side panel on. The amount of fan mounting locations and vented panels on this case actually make it fantastic for air cooling. I have 4x 120mm intake and 1x 140mm exhaust. When I crank the intake fans up you can feel the breeze coming out the side vents pretty strong.

Hi all!

I've started to plan out my SMA8 build which I can begin with soon (hopefully).
This is the hardware I'm planning on:
Case: CaseLabs Magnum SMA8 (39mm extention on top)
CPU: Intel 4930K
Mobo: Asus Rampage IV Black Edition
GPU: 2 GTX 780Ti
RAM: Corsair Dominator Platinum 32GB
PSU: Corsair AX1200i

Cooling:
1x 140x4 60mm (ish) radiator in bottom with pushpull.
1x 140x2 60mm (ish) radiator in bottom with pushpull
1x 120x2 60mm (ish) radiator in front with pushpull
1x 120.4 60mm (ish) radiator in the top with pushpull
EK 16mm OD acrylic tubing with all bitspower fittings, black sparkle or silver shining.
1 or 2 bitspower reservoirs depending on if I want to do singe or dual loop. Opinions please. (check further down for options)
D5 pumps with Alphacool acrylic mod top and Bitspower mod kid, (black sparkle or chrome)

I will use the new Notcua Industrial PPC fans which I will lower the speed on. I think I'll need 25 of these (wallet says ouch)
I'll get some "Modmytoys"4pin pwm power distribution things and connect the fans to these.
The color scheme will be black and blue. So I'm trying to decide between EK uv blue coolant and mayhem uv blue (I want it to glow =D)
The block on the motherboard that I'll use is the EK fullcover acrylic. Same goes for the gpu's, EK clean csq acrylic.

I made 2 very crude paint pictures with loop suggestions with a picture I borrowed/stole (sorry) from CaseLabs

The green lines in the pictuers represent tubing between the two radiators, I don't know if it'll be too tight to fit it, there should be a 26mm gap and the tube is 16mm so maybe =P.
Which do you think will be best? A dual cylinder reservoir loop, a single cylinder reservoir loop with two pumps, or a dual loop with 1 cylinder reservoir loop and a bay reservoir (Don't know if that'll fit though, it has a depth of 84mm so It should be enough)?

Option 1 Single loop Option 1! (Click to show)
Option 2 Dual cylinder res Option 2! (Click to show)
Option 3 Dual loop cylinder and bay res Option 3! (Click to show)

What do you guys think? =)

Nah, it's not that empty with only one.

Wow that looks amazing =D

One res it is! =P
I'm guessing two pumps to be preferred? since it's quite alot of radiators etc.
I'm thinking about the bitwspower dual d5 top
post #7390 of 22267
Yeah you could go with dual D5 and put them at low speed. I've only one on my loop and it works fine, but I keep it at 5 (silent enough to me).
