Re-building loop today and may finish before the weekend:
1. Swapped out top Rad EX 360 for RX 480
2. Re-mounted and positioned Photon 170 pump / reservoir (mounted to Mobo Tray....drilled some holes for mounting etc)
3. Added Bitspower D5 Pump Mod (Black Sparkle)
4. Replaced White LED in Reservoir with Blue
5. Added a EX 240 Rad down below to compliment EX 360 down below
6. All Fans re-positioned so no push / pull...just single set of Fans on all 3 Rads ...all Intakes (with Dust Filters)
8. Added another Drain Valve, so essentially 1 Drain Valvefor each "side" of the Loop

Left to do tomorrow:
1. Change Jet Plate to "Socket 2011" Plate on EK Supremacy
2. Re-orientate CPU Block 180 degrees to optimize tube runs
3.Connect Tubing and Wire Fans
4. Leak Test

So total 120.9 Rads, hoping very quiet with one set of Fans on each....I'll post up some pics either tomorrow or the next day once I'm Leak Testing.

So completely finished...started Leak Testing around 15:00 this afternoon, all looks good so far!!!

Completed everything above except replacing the Jet Plate in the CPU Block....turns out the Socket 2011 Jet Plate included in my EK Supremacy box has a chunk of steel slag on the surface of it....so left the Universal Plate in.
Took 1.75 bottles of coolant to fill the loop....lots of raddage (120.9) ;) ...
BP Pump Mod makes it look a little more "polished"....

Ya, you love it now. You'll love it even more, later. Especially in the summer months.

All hooked up :)

Re-built the Loop in the 900D:
- Swapped XSPC EX360 for RX480 up top
- Added another XSPC EX240 down below along with the existing EX360
Total Rad 120*9

no push / pull, so a little quieter.
Fans run around 1100 RPM Pump 2800 RPM
GPU Load Temps 43c 41c
CPU Load Max Core 67c
Ambient 22c

- Added BP D5 Pump Mod "Black Sparkle"
- Swapped out Reservoir White LED for Blue LED
- Re-orientated Supremacy to suit new tube runs
- Added additional BP Drain Valve to "other side" of the Loop

Temps dropped by around 4c under load with Rad config change...
Thanks for stopping by and checking her out ;)
