Once you're in that 4th bottom slot, its hard to keep your connections (ie headers). I lost everything on my Sniper5 Z87 but with the RIVE X79, i was able to squeeze in some small header cables to keep the power/reset/pwr/hdd led's. Some blocks do give you space to clear while others, like my Lightning blocks, don't frown.gif.


Why not sell it and get a reference 7950 to eventually block it?

Thanks ya I was thinking that's my only option the only thing that sucks is I use the wireless antenna currently so I would lose that also I have a wireless card but it's not as good. I'm moving in a few months so don't feel like running cable through the house.

I know I could sell it but I broke one of the fan blades on the dualx cooler so I have my MSI 7970 TF3 heatsink on it. I had to bend 5 fins to get it to mount so I'm not exactly sure if that's a selling point.

I have a pcie 1x riser cable to connect my sound card since the quad 7970 lightnings take up all the boards space.

And also seamlessly with this:

http://www.ekwb.com/shop/reservoirs-and-acc/reservoirs/ek-res-x3-series/ek-res-x3-400.html

Of course both with D5 pumps, but I have not decided which D5 pump between this Vario one:

http://www.ekwb.com/shop/pumps-and-accessories/pumps/ek-d5-series-pump/ek-d5-vario-motor-laing-d5-vario-motor.html

Or this PWM one:

http://www.ekwb.com/shop/pumps-and-accessories/pumps/ek-d5-series-pump/ek-d5-pwm-motor-12v-dc-pwm-pump-motor.html

Any thoughts on any of that?

EDIT: I noted that the PWM one is not made by Laing...

EDIT: In these cases I am talking about single pumps as you stated already that the dual pump top does not work with the shiny covers.

 

The D5 cover kit is compatible with the EK-D5 Bay Res, we will update the site soon to reflect this.

 

I'm confused by what you mean by "seamlessly" with the X3 Res as the D5 doesn't connect seamlessly with it? It's just an external res... You can buy the D5 X-Res and then a 400mm tube however and you'd get the desired effect that I assume you're wanting, which would be compatible with the D5 Cover kit.

 

All D5 pumps are basically the same minus what cables come out of them so unless we state specifically that certain models aren't compatible (which we don't), they are compatible with D5 Cover kit.

What speed would you recommend to set the EK-D5 Vario on?

With X-Top ,1 GPU +1 CPU +1 45x420mm Rad +1 60x420mm Rad in the loop?

Thank you!
post #3367 of 20773
From what i hear, #4 seems to be best compromise in noise and performance. I know the "B" model is permanently fixed at #4.

Hey, i have a question, how did you make the frosted looks on the EK CSQ waterblock disappear? I really like the glassed looks of it and i have similar blocks as the linking system as well..
