Did you find that the two radiators you have is enough for the CPU and those 2 780Ti?
I haven't actually had the chance to see how it handles both 780 Ti's... since I cracked the acrylic top on one of my blocks. But it (obviously) handles a single Ti and i7-4770k like a champ. But that's expected. I'll let you know once I get the second one in.

on other hand,
Is that a 328i or a 335i
It's a 328i
Also, quick update. FrozenCPU just informed me that they've received my replacement EK-FC780 Ti Acrylic top and have shipped it out!
Expected delivery date is 1/10/14. I'll probably drain my loop on the 8th to prepare
That looks very nice for sure! May I ask where you found 45 degree fittings from bitspower? Performance-PCs does not seem to have any and I would really like to avoid ordering from another site if I don't have to. Have you tried any other fittings other than the Bitspower ones?
EDIT: Never mind I just did not realize that they were a dual rotary instead of a single rotary. I found them.
Your concerns have been addressed I appreciate the constructive criticism. You're right.
Hey guys, quick update. I've completely done away with the zip ties! I've found an alternative solution. You're all right, using zip ties, although effective, would not be right to use in a build like this where you'll be able to see it. I drilled two new larger holes in the photon bracket, used larger and longer screws, and used a nut to completely fasten it down through the other side. My Photon res is as solid as a rock with this new method. It's completely rigid as opposed to the old method where the zip ties were only used to prevent it from wobbling. I'll also be using black rubber washers to prevent any vibration from the pump resonating with the case.
Can't believe I didn't think of using a longer bolt with a nut to fasten it on the other side. I wish you guys could see how solid the mount is now. It won't even budge.
Also, there's not much I can do about those extra holes on the bracket now... luckily the res will be covering most of it. I'm probably going to be painting the bracket with my matte black paint within the next couple days to get rid of all of the marks, etc.
I would post pics of the res mounted, however I painted the nuts and bolts black and am waiting for them to dry. I'll have the final mounted pics uploaded tonight.
Hi Brandon i know this is an old part of your build but I'm basically up to the stage of figuring out a mount for my photon 170/d5 in my 750d. i just wanted to know your thoughts about using the threaded mobo mounts versus drilling and using a bolt/washer like you did. did you consider using the mobo mounts? Also what size/thread are those bolts?
Your help would be amazing as the finish you have is perfect
