If you're doing a dual gpu and cou loop.. personally suggest you get a NZXT Switch 810, lot more rad options really

The 810 is like a godsend for multi rad setups because its price is unheard of for the pontential it brings

With the CM Storm Stryker, if I take out the bottom hard drive cage, I can run a XSPC EX240 rad with a push pull setup. I can also run the same setup in the roof with two of the fans on the outside of the case. I have a couple of questions.

1. If I get the Koolance RP-452X2 Rev 2.0 Dual 5.25" Bay Res is it worth it to get two D5 pumps and run a dual loop setup?
2. If I decide to run a dual loop setup does that res have two separate reservoirs? (noobish question I know)

If the RP-452X2 has two separate compartments I was thinking of doing one loop with distilled water and DazMode Protector with Feeser UV Blue tubing and in the other loop Feeser Clear non UV tubing and IceDragonCooling Nono Fluid - White. Any opinions on this idea?

Think about it.. with the Switch 810 you can run an XSPC RX360 and a RX240 at the bottom.. more room for cooling .. think about it

I am no where any good as others for water cooling, but so far I've read that dual pumps usually only helps if one fails, redundancy purposes... but then again, I'm not any good..

I don't mind the NZXT Switch 810, but a lot of people have used it and I was going to try to be different.

Hell I have plans of making a water cooled m-ATX folding rig in a few months.

When do you plan to pick up the Stryker?
I do like the NZXT Switch 810, but it's big man.. I'll see though, I may end up sticking with it..

Forget having dual loops. Its a mess and complicated.

Just do one single loop (with either 1 pump or 2).

So there have been some changes being made to the colour scheme so I decided to pick up a BitFenix Shinobi XL and I was wondering if a EX360 in the roof with GT AP-15s would be enough to run the 2700K OCed to 5.0 or 5.2 and two 560Ti @ 900MHz. Or Would I be better to mod the roof and get 3 more GT AP-15s and do push/pull. I really don't want to remove the hard drive cage to mount a separate rad on the floor.
