UPDATES - Most Recent First

-Attached is the concept sketch I did. Let me know what you think. Sorry about the horrible quality.(Am at school between classes and took the picture with my crackberry)redface.gif Colors will probably be Red/Black/White although the white is not set in stone yet. rolleyes.gif
-- No longer applicable--

-Below is the double loop I plan on doing for the watercooling. Please let me know if there might be a more efficient way.

First Loop: Pump -> CPU -> NB -> RAM-> 240 RAD -> RES
Second Loop: Pump -> SB -> GPU -> GPU -> 240 RAD - > RES
- Only planning for single loop at the moment to cut costs rolleyes.gif
Loop Planned as RES -> Pump -> Rad -> Rad -> CPU -> GPU - RES

-Thanks all for checking out this plan in progress. biggrin.gif

My only suggestion is make sure both of those dual rads are double thickness ones so you get better cooling performance. Should be fine. Looks interesting. biggrin.gif

If this is double dragon as in the game, I would add some yellow somewhere in the build to complete the look.

Was thinking about doing the push-pull method.... would you still recommend the double thickness?

The perspectives are fine on paper.... not sure why my phone skewed the pics. Will get a proper scan once I have internet again at the house.

Well if you are doing push and pull then double thickness would be even better. It will provide much lower load temps. Wont really help idle temps too much. But load temps are what really matter anyways.
