    Thank you. :)
    To seperate the tube flows for the different parts (CPU / GFX / RAM & Chipset) your tubing is perfect I think.
    If you don't want to seperate them you can do it that way and you will have less tube in the case I think:

    its not so much about limiting the tubing, but keeping the components in the correct loop.

    Loop 1 (Purple) i believe is connected to a 120.3 radiator to keep those Xeons cool
    Loop 2 (Red) would be connected to a 120.2 which cools the memory, chipsets and PWR regs
    Loop 3 (Green) of course is another 120.3 for graphics.

    So really he has got the best tubing layout already.

    Yeah, thanks very much for your input Blooddrunken but as Burnout says, i'm trying to keep components separate so at least both CPU's will end up being roughly the same temps which would be better when overclocking.....hopefully :thumb:

    1x 480 rads for CPU's
    1x 480 rads for MB and RAM Blocks
    2x 240 rads for GPU's

    I think that should be plenty :D

    since the CPUs produce much more heat than the mosfets and RAM, wouldnt it make sense to run your loops more like this:

    loop 1: CPU 1 - mosfet 1 - RAM set 1
    loop 2: CPU 2 - mosfet 2 - RAM set 2
    loop 3: GPUs

    seems like that would more evenly distribute heat among the 3 loops and keep from overloading loop 1.

    sorry if im way off base...im no water cooling expert :hehe:

    EDIT: i think i suggested the same thing as blooddrunken..oops :wallbash:

    @ Wicket_Sludge
    Yes but rad aren't the same so loop don't have the same cooling capacity.

    loops 1 and 2 are both using 1x 480 rads.

    loop 3 is the different one, using 2x 240's

    I am loving the mini cases, inspires me to do so many things :) Only thing that lets me down is that you are supporting Aquatuning/Phobya.

    Power?

    How are you going to power this behemoth? Surely you're going to have to use 2 PSU's?

    I love that baby cosmos you did, but this fetish of yours is getting out of hand.
    Keep up the good work :D

    Ok, it is a shame that a company with such bad morals and track record is supporting your mod - someone with such skill and calibre like you can do better than them :)



    Thought about a mini TJ07?

    I can't help but wonder, how exactly does one just "find" a 1000 watt PSU? :D

    Anyway, awesome stuff! :rock:

    I wish I could find power supplies. Any hints as to how they disguise themselves? :p

    LOL, i didn't mean it like that :D - i have a few M1000 PSU's but hadn't realised the difference in the Real Power M1000 which doesn't have the 6pin and 8pin and the Silent Pro M1000 which does and luckily i had one :thumb:

    Anyway, i'm waiting on the EVGA Classified SR-2 1200W PSU to hit Europe but it better hurry up or i might have to have a re-think :miffed:

    That looks like a rebranded Antec Quattro. Must be from the same OEM because they both have the same knobs on the back. Maybe if push comes to shove you could use that instead?
