Okay, so I've run into an interesting predicament with the whole pump/res/build/etc.

I'm stuck at a crossroads. Go with the helix res from FrozenQ or get the bay res with the helix in it. The bay res is definitely awesome and would be seen by more people, but I feel like the internal res would make the inside look epic.

There are caveats to each side:

Helix Res:
How to route from res to pump with 240 push/pull at bottom?
I've always wondered how you fill the helix res. Do you need a fillport installed?

Bay Res:
Not as epic as helix inside.

Also, another question. With 2 FC-7950 blocks, EX240, SR1 360, res, EK Max4 Extreme block, and EK Serial Bridge in the loop, should I go with the MCP355 for $35 shipped or a 655/D5 for $75 shipped (possibly less if I can find it)?

Thanks biggrin.gif

Helix for sure. They look so cool. I'm still thinking on getting one myself. As far as the pumps, I prefer the 655's but I think either will work fine in that situation. I would get a pair of 355's for the price of that 655.

Also, not free but it will be at a good price. It will be for sale tomorrow after I determine which board I want to keep.

450

Still not sure :/

If I were to go with the helix internal, I would end up getting one pump as I have no room for a second (still can't figure out the first one, lol). The bay res would alleviate all these issues as I can mount the pump right on it...

Let me know, I might have the money to do it after chatting with EK and FrozenQ. But its still not on my priorities list, hah.

Blue w/ white or blue w/ blue. Not the blue/red unless you know what you're doing, it might turn out purple, lol.

Also, I'm going helix with a 655 wheee.gif

That looks great, those are 60mm rads right? I'm using the same fans on the rads in my Switch, but I have an RS360 up top instead of the RX.
