Ooooo Great idea, Miahallen!
I'll have to check that out when I get home.

Thanks for the suggestion. thumb.gif

I was also thinking about doing what Septro did on the bottom of his case x 2.
It appears he installed a RX120 sideways. the Rad is slimmer width wise than it is length wise.
I could put 2 RX120's side by side (versus end to end) and daisy chain them.
It's a thought headscratch.gif

Bro I'm 99% sure you missed some thermal pads on these spots. My 2 EK 480 blocks specified to put tiny square thermal pads here:

The RX240 measures out at 11-1/4" Not only is it not going to fit even if I modified the Hard drive tower case legs, I couldn't even plug anything in to the PSU.

I might be able to make it work if I removed the front case fan, but I think that would be defeating the purpose.

I put a RX 240 in front here. In my opinion the front fan isn't really necessary for watercooling.

Nice looking rig there catcher.
I like the look of your RX240 at the bottom. thumb.gif

I was attempting to keep the fan there just to push any heat thru the case.
I still have an urge to hack away at the case and my thoughts are cutting the legs off the SSD tower to allow installing 2 RX120's side by side like Septros photo shows with his 1 RX120.

I'm just curious if the 2 pumps will be enough for 1 RX320 (top of case), 1 RX240 (back of case) and 2 RX 120's (bottom of case).
Attempting to water cool the CPU and 3 GTX 580's

I wasn't even considering water cooling until I saw [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C3i9EV3P9gQ&feature=relmfu[/ame] and Septros build log doh.gif

Thanks for commenting thumbsupsmiley.png

Hey I was wondering something about your pumps. Did you keep them at the stock level of 2 or did you bump them up?

Hey Septro. Where did you get those brackets to hold the external 240 rad?

P2OUT -> RX360 > CPU > RX240 > VGA > RX120 > P1IN

I'm getting used to the RAD hanging off the back, so hopefully I'll warm up to the look. Latest build pic:

Septro,
Haven't heard from you in a while, hope all is well.

I'm starting to get real close to installing all the pieces and parts that I seem to be receiving on a daily basis from USPS, UPS and FedEx for my new build and I noticed your loop order stating that you went P2OUT -> RX360 -> CPU -> RX240 ->VGA -> RX120 -> P1IN and looking at your picture I was wondering if the inlet on your HF Supreme CPU Block is on the right side as the instructions on the one I purchased shows the inlet on the Left hand side. (See attached photo)

I'm curious if I can safely rotate the CPU block so the inlet is on the Right Hand side versus the left hand side. This would just work out better for me to complete my flow circuit. Granted the lettering will be upside down but it would seem to work better in hitting all the rads i have planned.
I was going to go something like this...
P2OUT -> RX360 -> CPU -> RX240 ->VGA -> RX120 -> RX120-> P1IN
