    Cheers for the info on the PSU's.............ended up getting another Enermax 600watt Noisetaker with 2x PCI-E power connectors (same model as before but this one has 2 :confused: ) Plus it has the intake fan on the base which won't get restricted when the dual 120 BIX goes in.

    Anyway.....got the cards fitted to the blocks (which is quite a job in itself) and then a dry run at seeing how the pipe work is going to fit best.

    Think i've got it just about right as there is quite a bit of hose to get into a Wavemaster - the loop will go...

    Mmmmm very tasty. Love the simple tubing layout. Have any more pics from a little farther away?

    Cheers.

    (BTW -- Only the copper TDX? I would think someone such as yourself would instantly put in the silver variant :D )

    Is your water cooling all in one loop?

    If so don't you have flow dificulties?

    that does seem like a lot for one loop, no doubt you have a pretty powerful pump :)

    I'd like to see an overall shot of the case with the w/c stuff installed, but looks very nice! I'm not going to try thinking how nasty it must have been getting that 2" piece of tubing between the cards... granted I'm sure you were smart enough to do that out of the case/mobo.

    Just thinking out loud here... but you see where you have the wee little pipe.. what if you had a flow meter in there somehow.. maybe so it connects the 2 blocks? Thinking about it, it would be a biatch to plumb though.

    Little bit of an update....

    got my hands on a Coolermaster front bezel to hide the beige CD Rom and polished it which turned out quite well.

    I've also got the 2 Sli cards up and running but no benchmark as yet as i'm still trying different drivers and mainly concentrating on getting the case finished.

    I'm using and un-modded DDC pump and even with the 2 Sli blocks and also a chipset and CPU block it is still pushing out 3 PSI (not had a problem with this pump not starting yet bit it is one of the older versions and keeping a close eye on it)

    BTW....cards are running at 39 and 40 degrees

    A few pictures anyway...

    I pop in and have a read every now and again when I'm waiting for windows to install :hip:

    Have you tried 71.84 yet? Although there are reported problems with overclocking in SLI - I'll have to investigate that later this week myself, but Firehed was reporting issues with them. They certainly have the widest range of games supporting, so if you can find a driver build with a date after the date on 71.84, you will likely find the features/support of 71.84 with overclocking and also performance improvements (one would hope!).
