Seriously, that build looks great!!! I wasn't too sure on the hafx at first, but it really looks good put together. You will be fine with a 1500w PSU. Even if you are drawing a full 1500w you will only be drawing about 14A, even at 110v (worst case) which is fine for a standard circuit. You may need to limit the number of peripherals on that same circuit depending on how many watts you are actually using at max.

My one question now is about the parallel flow through the GPUs. Of course, in a perfect world, this would work great, but with variations in the heat-sinks and the small amount of hydrostatic pressure from card 1 to 4 I am curious to see how well it works. You really need to get that unit up and post some temps :)

After a day and a half of baby sitting our 1 1/2 yr old grandson I actually got some work done today, not that I mind since he had us in stitches with his antics pretty much since he got here

Anyhow, I have to thank Ryuji and Linus at NCIX for coming through and express shipping the washer I needed for the last 480 . It took awhile to get the plumbing figured out to the point I was happy with it but it came out pretty nice overall, it doesn't look too cluttered. Now I just have to leak test each loop and then tackle the wiring. I won't mess with the fan wiring until the Rheobus 6 channel gets here which should hopefully be Monday. So I guess if all goes well I should have this fired up by Tuesday

So how does that videocard cooling work? Wouldn't the water take the path of least resistant/distance? Meaning mostly through the first video card.

Non-compressible liquid. Pump pressure will move liquid in all possible directions (paths).

When you hook up cards in parallel, you end up with pretty much the same pressure across all the ports, so flow thru the cards is the same. I'm a little more concerned with the flow rate for 4 cards, whether there will be enough flow with the 655 pump and going through the quad rad. I figured I'd give it a try and see what the temps are like, if I'm not happy then I'll try the serial hook up and see which works better.

Your Quad-SLI is nicer than my Quad-fire :(

Looking forward to seeing the wiring... with so much shit in a case, it's hard to keep things clean.
