    Personally, I think that you should add a Y connector before the water gets to the graphics cards (and one after, obviously), mainly because if you don’t, the 1st card will get cooled by the water, and the second won't get as much cooling due to the temperature of the water having already cooled the 1st card.

    Where as, if you do, they both get a equal amount of cooling.

    The water temp will only rise a degree or two, and the chance of losing all flow from uneven tubing and frying a card isn't worth it at all.

    I'd definately add the second radiator though.

    Been speaking to my good m8 , M-D-K and hes going to do a batch of grills ,

    So i was pondering and came up with this design which i though might be a bit swish :naughty:

    [​IMG]

    ill swap out the 120.3 on the top for a 120.2 and have a fass-o-matic instead of a 120mm fan in the front hole.

    What do you guys recon?

    Extra then, whatever. The more the merrier.

    I do like that new idea with the 120.2 and FOM, just keep in mind you may lose more drive bays if you're the kinda person like me who has used all 9 on a PC6077.

    All they do are join two cables together, so provided the total cable length isn't over 1 meter (I think the asus cables are .5 meters, never measured mine) it shouldn't be a problem. Really innovative use of that thing...

    fittings came so now all im waiting on is the darn gfx cards :blah: before i can start tyding cables etc. Anyways here some more pics.

    [​IMG]

    Overall shot. cables at bottem are messy yes, not sure if i will braid them. Braiding them may make then neater but whats the point if your never going to see them. its like painting a masterpeice then hiding it behind a cupboard . :hehe:

    [​IMG]

    Back of mobo tray.

    [​IMG]

    Hole i made to fit wires through.

    [​IMG]

    front rad. and pump. (dam them messy wires :( )

    [​IMG]

    Internal shot. im still trying to find a way of routing that 12v+ cable. i wont fit via a hole next to the psu iv mesured.

    [​IMG]

    Big arse Night shot. Wont resize for somereason.

    [​IMG]

    Another night shot. woulnt resize aswell (RAWR at size of v1000 compared to my ikkle shuttle :p - David vs Goliath)

    Update: i will try to braid the cables i have decided but i have no heatshrink left, i have 4 meters of braiding , just no heatshrink :waah:

    What you think so far?

    Sc4mpi out...

    Looks awesome, but doesnt' compare in size to my new mammoth of a v2000! It's gunna weight an arseload when it's full, I think my full watercooled PC6077 is about as heavy as the thing is empty. Thank god for the casters. It may be aluminum, but there's still a LOT of it.

    You make a great point about the wiring... why bother if it won't be seen. Wiring neat freak as I am, I'm considering doing the same thing, but I'll have to wait till the rest of my stuff comes before I can get into any really serious planning. You should try and clean up the EZPLUG and whatnot wires though.. BTW is that an 8pin server plug for your 12v connector just overhanging? Or have I gone crosseyed?
