Marks are horrible and this whole radiator stacking fails big time.. get a new case and put them somewhere in it

i love the fact there's a tri sli rig in a budget box with possibly the worst cooling config I could imagine. Unstack those radiators and get a case that can house them all. This is why I never promote watercooling on a strict budget. To properly cool a tri sli setup with a decent case that can house the proper amount of radiator for it you're looking at around $1200+. The link to the project in my sig will give examples of how to cool a tri sli setup properly.

doesnt look very budget to me.....
let me see 3 360 rads 3 koolance blocks
a ton of noctua fans them are like 17-20 bucks each
so your budget estimation is very wrong....
and the case looks fine to me not everyone like to spend 200-300 on a case i personally would never ever

It's a watercooled tri sli setup in an antec... are you kidding? If it was aircooled it would be acceptable. Cheap out on the one thing that matters when it comes to cooling... the case. It's perhaps the most important part. Fans $136, Rads $220, Blocks $400. That was my estimate. $200 on a case for a tri sli setup is cheap, really anything under under $600 is that can hold all of the radiators necessary. Anyone who builds a tri sli setup and watercools it obviously doesn't care that much about money.

well because there is a fan layer for each rads the airflow is better than what you say it might be (I use to have one rad with one layer of fan and it was moving less air than that) but as I said, I will eventually unstack them: I need to have some sort of case in order to keep them under one unit...

Thx god: someone that still has a head on the shoulders!
You're right: there are
9xNoctua fans ($20 each) = $180
I have paid that case $190 last year
Those rads are currently $60 each (I have paid the fist one $80 6 months ago) = 2x60+80 = $200
2xPMP-450s = 2x80 = $160
front tank = $120
quick disconnect system = $50
the dual rad (in the case) is $50
all of the blocks (CPU and GPU) = 3x110 + 85
a huge bunch of connectors = $ ???
I also have a single high flow rad = $40 (not used in the current system but was before)

I had 2 orders at koolance:
First one was $915.08
Second one was $770.64
Total is $1685.72 + $150 customs fees for the 2 orders

so yeah...that's more than $1200...

Wait...I don't want to have the rads inside the case: priority #1 take the heat away from the inside of the computer.
Now look my system...everything fits in there...there's still some space (a total of 6 5.25" bays are empty) and i'm not interested to pay more than $200 on a case...cause this one fits everything I need. So stop trying to justify the fact that you invested too much money in a case that can't even fit in a car or can't even get through a door...I did that quick disconnect rad system because I wanted mobility (even if the case weights a bit more than 60 pounds at least I don't have the weight of the 3 rads when I want to move it)
I mean the montain mod case you have may be too big for what I need and the Antec 1200 is perfect: not too small, not too big

If I was to do it again I would have spent double on a custom case slightly larger. I go to tons of LANs and it fits nicely in my truck and even in the trunk of my car even with the top retracted. Just toss on casters and it's mobile. Internal temp is only 3c above ambient at tdp, so no "heat soaked" hardware. For spending that much poor choices overall. 5x120 BI gtx rad area w/1850 rpm gtap15s would have been a better choice
