    I know its been way too long and these damn 840's have been breeding :worried:

    Some serious cooling needed for this EVGA SR-2 board and although the 840 is a pretty big case it was obviously going to be to small for 3 loops so lets get "stacking"

    Anyway, i was looking at my separates under the TV and liked how they stacked with the round silver feet showing in between so decided to do something similar with the two 840's and make a stacked rad box to fit on top.

    I'm thinking a couple of EK 480 radiators up top - one for the CPU's and one for the full board block and and a couple of MIP's RAM Freezers.

    I'm removing the hard drive caddy from the main 840 and will be mounting two EK 240's there for the graphics cards.

    So, i did a bit of a crude mock up with bits of chewing gum just to see how things look

    MINI 840 anyone :D

    System Spec:
    Coolermaster ATCs 840 Chassis x2
    Intel X5650's
    EVGA SR-2 Motherboard
    EVGA GeForce GTX 480 Hydro Copper Cheesecake - Quad Sli
    12GB Crucial RAM
    Kingston 64GB SSD's
    Coolermaster Silent Pro Gold 1200w PSU

    Watercooling Spec:
    MIPS MB and RAM Freezer Blocks
    Watercool HK3 CPU Blocks
    Bitspower Carbon Black fittings
    Phobya Radiators (2x 480 & 2x 240)
    Koolance RP-450X2 Bay-Res x2
    Laing D5 Pumps x3
    Premochill 7/16" Hose
    Premochill Dye Boms UV Red

    Cheers guys......long way to go yet but you get the idea :)

    BIG thanks to Crazy_V shipping me a brand new SR-2 board over and going above and beyond with updates, even though she's had her own issues to deal with.

    I got to hold one of the early samples at CeBIT in March but i forgot how big they actually are but none the less it, what a fantastic piece of kit.

    Anyway couldn't resist sticking a few dual PCB 295's in there just to see how it looked :naughty:

    ......blocks all ordered :)

    I can well imagine that whatever blocks you have coming are going to be gorgeous and highly fitting, but had to post this.
