Ok, optimal cooling looks like not so optimal tube routing.

Here's my take. You have to reverse the barb locations on the inner rad, though.

Yeah, that looks much better. I guess it would be an excuse to get some better L brackets anyway, since I'd be at it anyway! Thanks!

Well, I did it!

I kinda did my loop in an interesting way. I tried to reverse the position of my internal top RAD, but the Mobo tray brackets get in the way of the nozzles. Wasted a good hour fiddling around with the top panel to only put it back in place, take a look, and swear soooo much hahaha. Just getting the bubbles out of my loop now, it looks leak free, and flows very well. Yay!

Don't worry, pics are taken. However, I have no USB cable for my camera, and my lonely card reader is in my machine! So, when it is up and running properly, after more of this leaktestings, the pics will be added !!

(btw, this ResRAD thing, take ages to get bubles out.....either that or somehow soap got into my loop.......cause it sure is bubbly.

Tada!
Dropped my Multi down to 7 for board and RAM testing, seems 1600MHZ is a perfectly stable platform. Must be CPU volts needed now. Anyway, there she is! Cooling is awesome! CPU maxed at 48 when I was testing 3.2GHZ, seem I need a little more juice. After an hour of Crysis, I am glad to report both GTX's didn't even break 50. And just yesterday my DuOrb was hitting 100! AWESOME.

Looks like it's going to explode at any moment due to over crowding! And the res on the back looks like it's trying to...mate with your case?

Good job though! It was very well done!
