Thanks!

I'm subbed to your build as well... I check it constantly to see how you end up mounting/setting up your Photon 170 res/pump tongue.gif

The main difference between my loop and yours is that you are using rigid tubing, where as I'm using soft tubing. I'm going to be mounting the Photon near the front 280 mm rad, however, setting up the tubing to link the radiator and the pump is going to be pretty tough... I'm trying to avoid 90 degree fittings at all costs, which is why I purchased 2 45 degree fittings. I hope I can figure something out.

Heading to Home Depot after work today to pick up some hardware thumb.gif

EDIT: Just got my EVGA GTX 780 Ti backplates as well as Pro SLI bridge

Hi there Brandon. I will also be doing a build in the 750D mid December and will run the XT45 360 radiator as well. Do you really think 6mm M3 screws will be long enough to put the radiator at the top without the fans inbetween the casing and rad? I would think you would need like 10mm long or so if you consider the rubber parts in the screw hole and then if you are going to use washers as well?

I don't know, but please update your thread when you have that figured out, as that information will help me immensely.

So far so good on your build. More Pictures! thumb.gif

EDIT: 8mm might be a better length. 10 might get a bit long.

You are correct. As a matter of fact, I actually went with 12mm M3 screws with 1 lock washer and 2 flat washers per each screw. I was looking for 10mm M3 screws, but the shortest M3 screws Home Depot had were 12mm in length. I went ahead and grabbed the 12mm M3 screws, along with some locking washers and flat washers. See below for pics on how I mounted the XT45 to the top of the 750D. Also, going to paint the washers and screws matte black once I get the chance smile.gif (which is what the can of spray paint is for)








More pictures added as well in the post above thumb.gif

Thanks for all of the feedback thumb.gif

Here are some more pics of the EVGA backplates and Lamptron fan controller. Decided to test out the fan controller today. I must say, this Lamptron FC5V3 fan controller is awesome. Well worth the $100 I spent on it. 6 channels, 30W per channel, and excellent build quality. Also has 16 different colors you can change the LCD on the front to match the theme of your build.











Happy Thanksgiving to those of you in the states thumb.gif

I just want the OP to know, I am pretty much copying your entire WC setup. I just want to make this known in light of all the copyright infringement lawsuits going down recently tongue.gif Awesome build man! Can't wait to see it progress! Subbed!

in life, it's not about getting what you deserve, but getting what you negotiate.
