Nice job. 720mm of rad must give some great cooling. You could probably throw another 5870 in there and not even notice the difference in temps.

Those Corsair 7/800D cases are huge, it almost looks empty compared to my case!

That's a lot of cooling power!

You should add another 5870 or two,

Impressive, although I'm more partial to a tube res myself, I'm surprised how well it works. Anti kinks looks nice too. The pipe running from the rad to the res does look a little ugly and out of place, though.

Although I would say that I don't like the way the Bay Res intrudes in the front panels, ruining the flush look somewhat, but that's more of a personal preference. Cable management looks good too, real good.

Thanks alot! I plan to add another 5870. unfortunately I refinanced my truck to do this lol. 800 went to remodel the bathroom and I got 1500 for my updates.

Without the anti kinks, i think it would have been plain looking.I had ordered uv tubing but they shipped just red. so I will be ordering the uv red when i do a tear down ( adding 5870 ) also need to move up from my 1680x1050 to full 120hz 1080p

It's all about personal preference, it's not what others think, it's what you think. I've never been a fan of Anti kinks, nor bay res's, but everyone is different.

My loop may look dull to some (few things unplugged here):



But I love it, and at the end of the day, that's all that really matters, isn't it?

Having people applaud your work is one thing, but being truly happy with it is quite another.

You could add two more 5870's and still get good temperatures, you have a lot of radiator to work with! Kudos on modding the top for a 480 as well, takes a brave man to cut a hole in a £200 case. Got any pictures of that?

why yes I do I posted my build log yesterday. not much traffic going there. I actually punctured the 480 and had to buy a new one. i was told it could be fixed but that is beyond my capabilities. I would sell it but i can't until my rep hits 35 ( which is not easy)

but I was very nervous doing the cutting and really could have done a better job had i known more about metal work ( i have no exp in that area ) I am very very satisfied with the results and very pleased with the outcome. I had to send back a uv cathode. wouldn't light and the tubing I requested was not uv reactive which i didn't find out till after I installed everything so I will do that on a future teardown. most places in the us have this selling for around 300. oh I had to take the built pc to micro center ( had cheapest price on the 800D) due to possible failed hot swap pcbs. you can't imagine the looks my pc got going through the store rofl... even the tech was afraid to touch it and actually brought me out back to the tech bench lol. and do yourself a favor... don't carry it form your car to the store.. park out front and get a flatbed.. this thing is a monster and is extremely heavy rofl i may wegh it tomorrow but i'll guess between 80-100 lbs!
