@ccbrooks
Ok yeah that's what I thought that dual loop meant, thanks for clearing it up. Very nice looking build you have there too btw. As for my customer, he's looking for the bragging rights with some very minor overclocking so I doubt heat will be a terrible concern for him.

@BMAN69
Thank you very much! I will definitely present these options to my customer, all of those look like great options. I currently have the 650D myself and so far I'm pretty dam happy with it. In his case though, I think the HAF X would suit him best just because of the size of it. And for the kits, I was thinking of getting him the EK kit you mentioned, it'd just be a matter of adding the GPU and Mobo blocks as well.

Haf-X has to much internal clutter to make it easy to really watercool.

800D has much more open spaces.

800D with a pump/bayres combo is really hard to beat. Couple mods internally and there isnt a whole lot you cant do.

Haha, is your system watercooled? If it is would you mind posting a pic just so I could get an idea of how it'd look?

@enaberif
It really seems like the 800D is the fan favorite, maybe I should convince my customer to scratch getting a new motherboard + waterblock(for now) for it and get the 800D in its place.

@turtletax
Would you happen to know of some good bayreses(sp?) that I should consider for the build if it does go to the 800D?

I personally have used and worked on both the Haf-X and the 800D and hands down the 800D wins for accessibility and space.

@alberto
this is my setup atm...New setup pic
I've just realized, by the way, in the my own thread...I've commented on your reply.


@enaberif
What do you mean by "internal clutter"? I find it to work fine and plenty of room for me. If you want to know what clutter is...try to put a WC system in an Antec 900 ...everything internal except rad.

Its all one cavity in the Haf-X where the 800D is split up which makes it MUCH easier to manage and route stuff internally.

haha yeah just read your post and replied. And like I said in the other thread, your case looks like it could support a WC system without much trouble. What's the size of your rad if i may ask?

@enaberif
Yeah it does have a bit more of an organized look but it's also at a considerably higher price. Would it being just one cavity really present a big hurdle for organization?
