Heh... I even went so far as to check out amd adapters that might fit the 775 GTZ I've got here.... no luck unfortunately, I guess it's too old.

A:
Would you continue to run the CPU under the H100 and just use the mobo and video on air until getting another CPU block? Then do the entire custom loop all at once? (I'm strongly leaning towards this one)

B:
Install the CPU and GPU blocks, run the mobo with the stock air cooler until getting another CPU block? (this would require redoing part of the loop and possibly wasting tubing and MX-4 paste)

C:
Run the H100 with the EK mobo and gpu blocks.... so essentially have two separate water cooling loops for now? The mobo and 7970 would only be cooled with the RX120, and again this would be until I get a different CPU block. Also possibly wasting tubing and paste when I redo the custom loop.
If I were you,I wouldn't worry about wasting paste etc. When you start doing what you are,paste is nothing. At the end of the day,you gotta do what you gotta do. Can't wait to see it finished. Nice work.

I got ripping into it last night.

Last pic before tear down.



The old mobo all by it's lonesome. It's a solid board and she's done me well! Sad to see her go.



Crosshair V installed.



Tear down of the mighty 7970. (I should have took a few good pics after the WB was installed on the card but it was way past my bedtime. I was tired and forgot.)





Bare GPU all cleaned up.

Here's a few pics to give an idea what it should all look like.
