My System Specs

Default Spedo Water Setup

Watercooling Log Step 1 - YouTube

So i've got a no name Rad, banged up a tad some of the fins are bent etc

What i got

Banged up no-name Rad 240
EK Supreme LT Nickel / Plexi
No-Name Pump
Swiftek Square Res
Tygon 3/8" ID Tubing
Thermaltake Coolant

What i want

XSPC RX240, 63mm Thick compared to 45mm no name one i've got
Performance Dual 120mm Radiator XSPC RX240 Performance Dual 120mm Radiator XSPC RX240 [RX240] - $73.99 : DazMode, The Best Canadian PC Watercooling and Modding Store!

So plans have changed.. i will be making a Dual loop setup for my 5970 alone and Mosfet / CPU on the other

EK Spin Bay Black
Swiftech MCP355 Pumps
XSPC DDC Plexi Performance Top
XSPC Performance 65mm Dual 120 Radiator
16ft of TFC 3/8" ID Red Tube
12x Straight Compression Fitting
3x 45 Degres Compression Fitting
4x Barb Clamps
Dazmode Protector
Indigo Xtreme™ Thermal pad LGA 1155

All from our DazMode store

480$ Shipped / Taxes

Will be getting a EK WB for my 5970 and also a EK Plexi Mosfet from another member here

any other recommendation ?

its just a question but i've got a DDC pump with Acetal top that i've planned on my build after the video Daz made and thinking of using the bay res + making a hole in my 5.25 bottem bay and putting the tube threw it and mount my pump underneath the 5.25 for less clutter

This is a layout on paint i've made to show what i what to do

Intel i7 3930K / 16GB Corsair Vengence DDR3-2400
Asus X79 Rampage Extreme Black Edition / EVGA GTX 770

Corsair 480GB SSD / 1TB WD Black

IN WIN 303 / EVGA NEX750 Gold

Since you have 2 rads why don't you consider :

top rad -> cpu -> mofset -> side rad -> 5970 -> pump -> res or res -> pump (idk how u have that all set up).
That would help clean up the bird's nest next to the cpu as you'd have to place the top rad with the fittings to the right (it's to the left in the picture).

Anyway you slice it, I think you have a good build idea here, and dazmode is good stuff!
