If your using a dual rad, then you can get it to fit on top of an CM690 without any modding. If your using a triple rad, then you will have to find a way to reroute the top USB/firewire etc etc.

You don't need that much Jerry; that AMD chip and those 2 9600GTs don't have such a high heat load.

Pump: the MCP-355 is more than plenty.
The Apogee GT is fine too; bowing it is a plus.
The Swiftech MCR-220QP will take care of that heatload. And by the same token the reservoir.
After multiple tests, I strictly use 3/8" tubing (the Primochill stuff lately). No added value to use the 1/2": takes more space and needs wider bends than 3/8.
For the GPUs the Fuzion blocks are fine, don't forget the Unisinks to cool the MOSFETs and ram chips.

Thanks guys.

John, what about the D-Tek high flow barbs? What size?

What about Feser One Fluid UV Orange NON-CONDUCTIVE Water Replacement for Liquid Cooling -$19.99?

3/8", the same size as tubing.

You wish to stick with the orange theme, right? I never used anyting else than distilled water and the Swiftech stuff...
I just saw your SLI setup; the 355 pump may be bordeline for this. The 655 may be more appropriate.

Yep sticking with the orange theme.

Will the MCR-220 still be enough for an SLI setup?

I've read good things about the Feser One fluid

Now regarding the MCR-220QP, if you wish to mount it on top it may be a problem since it is also the reservoir. You may have to use the non-QP version and a Micro-Res.

Also, the MCR-220 is very potent; slap fans in push-pull config and it just shines.
