]New here, subbed.

Looking forward to more WC stuff like this, hopefully doing of of my own soon!

wouldn't you be able to make the loop shorter by turning the top radiator so that the water from the top rad runs straight into the res instead of venturing across the entire case?
i understand this may not be possible due to the drive bays, but just an idea.

Agreed, maybe instead of rotating the top radiator go Pump>Front Rad>GPUs>Top Rad> CPU>res ?

Edit: just realised i was responding to the first page, feel stupid now mad.gif

Just curious, how do those cards perform acoustically? I've always been curious about those coolers.

After about an hour of Battlefield 4 @ 2560x1440 on Ultra Settings and 4xMSAA, I couldn't even tell that the fans on the cards were even spinning. These cards are extremely quiet even while under load. Coming from a GTX 480, which would become quite noisy after a few minutes of BF4 gameplay, these are practically silent.

I did, however, purposely turn up the fan speeds with EVGA Precision X and found that it wasn't until 60-70% fan speed that I was actually able to hear these cards operating. I believe while playing BF4, they were only around 40-50% fan speed.

Hope this helps, but all in all, the stock cooler does an excellent job of keeping the temps down while barely being audible.

UPDATE: Upgraded Power Supply - AX1200i

Although the AX860i has been perfectly able to handle this build thus far, (even while heavy load during benchmarking and gaming) I chose to go for the AX1200i instead. Reason being, once I get my loop up and running, I'm going to be overclocking and heavily increasing voltages on my CPU and GPU's in order to maximize the overclocking potential. Too close for comfort for me. I'll be swapping my AX860i out today and replacing it with the AX1200i - although with the increased length of the AX1200i, I hope that I'm still able to mount a 2 x 120mm rad on the bottom of the 750D. If not, I'll stick to my original plan and mount a 2 x 140 mm rad to the front of the case.



Newegg was able to get this package to me in less than 24 hours. I ordered it yesterday afternoon, and received it this morning around 10:30 AM. They were also kind enough to waive the re-stocking fee for my AX860i even though I already opened the package.

Thanks Newegg thumb.gif

















Corsair AX1200i installed. I'll be ordering the parts for my custom loop soon smile.gif

Excellent build and documentation thus far!

I upgraded my ram on my x79 platform last week to 32gb of the G. Skill Trident X - 2133, and have been very pleased with it.

1440p BF4 gamer here as well, good luck with the rest of the build. Looks great.

Thank you kind sir thumb.gif I'm a huge fan of these G.SKILL Trident X DDR3-2400 kits as well.

Let me tell you - it looks even better in person. The "armor" actually feels... like armor. All jokes aside. Unfortunately, I was forced to take off the back-plate for now until I can figure out a way to mod it so that it fits in my Corsair 750D. Perhaps while I'm modding my case to install the custom loop, I'll be able to work something out then.

Also, here's a quick clip I took of Battlefield 4 running at 2560x1440 with all settings on Ultra and 4xMSAA. Although you can't see the FPS, it's generally around 110-130 fps during gameplay.
