My System Specs


So I ditched X79... because I bought a GA-Z77X-UP4 TH for $120 and picked up a 3770K.
Didn't "need" the extra memory capacity and graphics lanes.
Saved the extra cash for the watercooling setup and some pretty Dominator Platinums (8GBx2, DDR3-1600 and 9-9-9-24).

As a gift, I was also given a...

(*drum rolls*)

... Case Labs M8.
Always wanted a cube case and the significant other decided to be very generous.
And now of course the watercooling setup will change.

480 worth of rad should be fine to cool those parts, and you can easily run pump>rads>cpu>gpu1>gpu2>reservoir>pump and get good results.

The key to a good WC build is the ease with which you can drain/fill your loop. Not an easy task with a bay reservoir. Consider a drain and fill line...

Good luck.
Liu Kang (or anyone with an answer), if I want to keep the Koolance bay reservoir and mount (2) 360 radiators on the bottom of the Case Labs M8, how do you think I should setup the drain ports?

I do not anticipate filling being a problem, the Koolance bay reservoir will be the highest point and is easy accessible for filling (front and top openings).

Should I buy 360 rads with more than two openings and use one of the extra ports for draining?
This seems like the easiest route.
Originally I just wanted to go with (2) RX360s.
