Most of the heat generated by the pump goes right into the coolant - about 34W for that pump.
I think I can reverse the direction of flow but it will be very tight between the drain and side panel.

Did you face any issue with Seasonic X-850 and this configuration? is it enough if I would like to build the same configuration?
Did you have the chance to check how many wattage in real is used by a kilometer?

I did not face any issues with the Seasonic X-850. I was running Prime95 and FurMark at the same time and had no problems. In my opinion, it will be enough if you build the same configuration.

No, I did not check the wattage the system was using with KiloMeter. But another review site measured it and it was 770W, if I remember correctly.

You don't need to worry about the direction of flow and order of components. It's been long proven that coolant moves through a loop so fast that there are only nominal temperature differences based on component order. Do what makes the loop look best to you.

This guy speaks the truth, I laugh when people try and "optimize" coolant through blocks.

My 4670k is a C384 and seems to be pretty decent so far.
Its at 4.4ghz 1.16v and I haven't really tried pushing it any higher yet.
My H110 keeps it around 72-78C across all cores with a 20c ambient room.

It's actually top mounted in my Air 540 pushing case air up through the radiator so I could probably drop temps a bit if it was drawing fresh room air through the rad.

Anyways this looks like a fun build and I'd love to be able to build a custom loop in the future.
From all I've read about it I wouldn't worry too much about optimizing flow between that pump,rad and gpu section, it looks solid and you do have a rad between the GPUs and CPU.

I'm looking forward to seeing the 290x cards with the blocks mounted!
Myself I'm just planning on finding a cheap closed loop system like the H55 on clearance at Canada Computers and modding it to fit on my GTX 670.

I too have a D series case here that I am supposed to build something into over the next month and I have to wait until next month to be able to say more!

I did some measurements before my vacation and it turns out the pump with the drain will not fit if I reverse flow. I also think that my proposed tube routing looks best. So, I will route the tubing as I originally proposed.
