Thats a pretty sweet set up. Did you have to mod your case at all to fit that 200mm radiator in there? You might want to clean your gpu up a bit with some isopropyl or rubbing alcohol with a lint free cloth, Q-tips, or coffee filter. On a side note I'm not the best one to talk to in terms of sizing up a radiator, but i'm not sure if a single 200mm and a duel 120mm would be enough for two 580 and a 2600k, but thats just me. I generally oversize my systems with a ton of extra cooling. My last system was a 120.4 TC radiator with 8 scythe kaisi junior's for an i7 920 and two 260 216 cores.

Update:

Now I know I'm no professional modder I will be trying my best. There are some really nice TJ11 builds out there and will be really hard to match. I guess I can now join the club!

I have now gone with a Silverstone TJ11


Reservoir has been switched to a Bitspower Water Tank Z-Multi 250.


I have also used the top mesh from my old Corsair 600T to mount the reservoir and hide everything 5.25 bays.


XSPC RX480 added.



I am waiting on Bitspower Taiwan to send the second GPU waterblock.

EK-D5 DUAL SERIAL PUMP TOP with 2 x Dazmode D5 Strong pumps mounted in the 5.25 bay with anti vibration mounts.

I was thinking about trying to put my Phobya Xtreme 200mm on the left AP-181 but it doesn't fit with the gfx card by 1/4" (would also have trouble with routing tubing as I will be using that hole there)

I know the pictures are crap but I will be getting a friend to take some higher quality pictures once I have fully finished.

Watercooling is so much fun!

I have some blue uv tubing and a couple blue leds from the raystorm. I also have a white led strip I might try and use.

Looks great!!! Good call on wrapping the clear tubing with blue to keep everything in theme.

Love the idea of the flow meter... I suppose since I leave my WC'd rigs running for weeks without looking at them it shouldn't matter, but I still want some kind of visual cue that the water is actually flowing through the system. :)
