I think I might order a pump top too. Does anyone know if the lanning DDC tops will work with the pump I have in the above picture? Or do I need to buy a D5 top? And when I switch the tops will the old pump mount still work?

There are two types of Laing/Xylem pumps. The D5 type and the DDC type. They are completely different.

D5



DDC

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), default quality

You seem to have a D5 in the pictures above so only D5 parts will work with it.

Most D5 tops will come with a new mount of some description. The Bitspower D5 mod top uses the stock mounting though.

Wish I woulda seen that earlier :s all I can do now is hope it won't leak. Or strip lol. I feel like every time I order something over the weekend, the following Monday is some sort of holiday and all the post offices are closed. I gotta wait longer to rma my fan and wait longer for my package. Oh well

The 120mm rad won't fit inside the case with the RX 360 in there. You will have to place it outside or mod your case a bit. I got the same case and rads btw.

I assume that for the 240 you had to drill holes?


I could not fit the 360 on the top, so just stuck to 280 instead...

I think it depends on when you got your case, but i think they revised the 810 to fit a wider range of rads on the top. they also cut out holes in the bottom of the stealth bay drive for better ventilation if you put a 360 rad in push pull on the top.

as for the 240... It has holes for a 240 rad. However, mine was a bit on the long side. So when i tried to place it in there, it would hit the bottom fan mount on the front of the case. I don't have a wide tool collection.. But i do know if you keep bending metal back and forth it will crack. so i took out some pliers and went at it. Broke the bottom piece off and chipped the paint at the bottom a little. But the front panel covers it, so you wouldnt really be able to tell.

what is that black thing in the middle of your case under the cpu block?

Antec Spot Cool, I used it on my previous mobo, as it did not have VRMs heatsinks, this new mobo has, so I decided to direct it to the RAM

I'd suggest ditching that 120mm in the front, not worth removing the top HDD cage to fit that, it won't really help your temperatures. I had one in the rear of case and removed it because rad on top and 240 on bottom was plenty for 3930k + 2x 7970 both with high OC.

I must disagree, there is never too much rad surface. 2 rads can be enough to dissipate all heat from the current configuration, but more rad surface makes the system more future proof. New Radeon HD 9 series are just round the corner and from information which has leaked we see that top models can be 300 TDP, two of them in the system and you are looking at 600W of heat just from the cards to be removed from the case! I personally fitted 1x280, 1x240, 1x120 and 1x140, which seems to be just enough to cool the oc'ed i5 4670K and a pair of oc'ed HD 7850, with fans being nearly inaudible...
