Wow that looks really good, that's the exact same pump, top, and mod kit I used, great minds think alike huh
wink.gif
I saw you asked about adding an RX240 to your build in the Switch thread, and wondering if it will change temps? I think it would...you said load temps are around 70 Celsius, that's kind of high and you probably could be doing better.

EDIT: Just looking through the pics closer, any particular reason for using two reservoirs?

Originally, I wanted to see the awesome effect of the mayhem aurora coolant, but since that coolant didnt last long, I might take that 150 res away and just use the bay res.
Is adding 240 radiator a good idea? I mean, would you do it?

Not only would I, I did

Check my build log, RX360 and an EK 240 went into my Switch.

EDIT: Just to save you some time digging through the log

This is so awesome!!

but I heard that you need to drill holes to mount a 240 on the front. I might just put it at the bottom.

awesome build!

Left enough space for a EX 240 rad in the bottom for the future
Oh... it looks like your using some kind of stand under it that is mounted.

I'm curious what extra stand your using.

Nice i have the 3570k at 4ghz with 1.12v on air. Water cooling soon so i will set around the same voltage and hope i get some good results. How quiet are those fans? I want to get the same gelid wings.
