Smile What can I do to improve my loop's organization?

I think it's VERY messy...the rad is in the expansion bays BTW (hidden by black wallish thing).

Edit: This is ****ing incredible!!

Is that the potential of a HAF932? Dang.

Out the top of the pump to the cpu. Get rid of the 2 elbows going to the rad. Cpu to gpu stays the same. Gpu to rad (lose the elbow) and then rad across the bottom to res. Better setup and no 90 degree elbows.

Looks like a few fan filters would do some good as well.

Also, HOLY ****

Hands-on with Corsairís Obsidian 800D Full Tower :: TweakTown

I...am without words. *Saves up even more money* So much pc stuff, DX11 cards, better psu, ditching LGA775, and now this.

And thanks for your suggestions on my current loop.

Well, they might keep it from being possible to sign your name on the back of that video card. Seriously, at a certain point, dust really can start to impede cooling, and you'd be surprised how much heat the back of a video card can radiate if you let it.

So uh, do these filters go on the outside right? Not internal fans? Only the side facing out of the case?

And I'm so interested in that new case. Where is the pump in that corsair build?

NCIX said the ETA of the case is some time in September, but they don't have a firm date as Corsair hasn't even finalized the design for retail. I am planning on getting one of these cases even though $300 is WAY more than I'd normally spend on a case.
