My System Specs

Default Red Dragon

So I have been working on my new build for a while now and decided to post my progress . In order to cut down on noise and the number of fans needed I decided to do cutouts in the pannels. I am using 4 water loops on this build 1 for Mobo, 1 for each video card, and 1 for the ram. I am piping it all in 1/2" OD chrome copper tubing . I am doing all the cut outs with a Scroll saw (rtired and have the time) each one have taken about 12 hours each so far. I don't have a really good camera so I aspologise for the picture quality, The colours are Dark Cherry Metallic and Flame Red , any how here are the spec's

Mountain Mods Ascension Extended case
Intel 3970X
32 GB Corsair Dominator GT 2133 Ram
2- OCZ Vertex 4 256 GB SSD
2- EVGA 690 GTX video card
Corsair AX 1200 power supply
4 Aerocool Touch 2000 fan controllers W/temp monitoring
Heat Killer Mobo, Video card, processor, and ram water blocks (black&chrome style)
3- XSPC 120mm quad rads
1- XSPC 120mm dual rad (RAM)
4 Storm D5 Vario pumps
2- EK dual pump , dual outlet pump tops W/150mm res
16- Enermax TB Silent fans 8-12 db 45 cfm

Wow. Impressive piece of hardware, and the scrollsaw cutouts are very well done. Don't get a hernia trying to lift it off the workbench.

Instead of 2x GTX690, it needs 3x GTX Titans.

This build is EXACTLY what Titan was designed for!

Question from a noob, would a smaller case such as an 800d suffice for this kind of build, or is there a significant cooling (or anything else) advantage to going with this large of an enclosure or is solely a preference thing.

He's doing four separate custom water loops, so he needs as much space as he can get.

An 800d would work for a couple of rads at the most. He's using 4 rads, three of them are massive quad-rads.
