    Drunken, how many 45 or 90 degree fittings do you have available?

    I'd say flip the EK CPU block so the outlet is on the left, flip the 240. Then go Res/Pump - CPU - 360Rad - GPU - 240Rad - Res/Pump

    Have fun!

    DrunkenValley wouldnt it be more efficient if you didn't have your tubing going from cpu to cards directly? As in pump outlet -> T section one to gpu's one to cpu then radiators (1 each) then before pump T-section again?

    Also wouldn't it be more comfortable if you could flip the cpu block to have "out" @ left side?

    This is a bad idea, water takes the path of least resistance and if you did it like this one loop would have great flow while the other would not. Nothing personal here, just what I've learnt over the years

    On another note, finally got the 780Ti that I had to RMA back! Yay fun fun fun

    Its a closed loop with pump, why would one have significantly greater resistance from the other?

    Not going to rotate the CPU block, because the badge would be upside down. That's a pretty big do-not-want for me.

    And I'm not flipping the CPU block upside down. I despise the notion of installing it upside down lol.

    I meant 2 loops just sharing the pump.

    |------cpu----top rad-----|
    T> ----- Res/pump ----- <T
    |----gpu-gpu--bot rad-----|

    Even if I could, and it would honestly be a difficult thing to get right, it would still be either a minimal effect or detriment.

    Gonna be a bitch to bleed. Why not just make new holes, I'm sure you're familiar with a drill?

    The CPU loop will probably have significantly less resistance than the GPU loops, thus the aforementioned scenario will occur. Only thing you can run parallell are GPU blocks, seeing as they are identical and will have the same resistance.

    I got the 780Ti's under water now, they idle at a lovely 26-27 celcius and not seen them go above 37 under load. 1245MHz

    Techbay.no have some good rotaries and fittings, since you're Norwegian too I didnt know if you knew about this site

    I see your point about the CPU block, getting some angle and rotary fittings will definitively help out your plumbing in this build. You could do what I said without flipping the CPU easy with some rotaries.

    Pump/Res - CPU - 360Rad - GPU's - 240Rad and then back home to the res

    Aside from the res/D5-top all of the watercooling came from there. Those rads are their rebranded rads. Mostly because Paypal was a bitch and wouldn't let me order from any other site out there.

    But as said, I'm mostly just waiting to see what the plan is before ordering. I need to be a tad careful about the money right now, and I'm happy to be patient and waiting before doing this.

    That's normally the best way to do it, however it is quite hard to rein oneself I'll give your build a proper lookover and work with angle fittings in mind and PM you my ideas ^^

    That's with RAM caching (RAPID mode) turned on, I wouldn't run this daily. For everyday use, gaming etc. there really isn't much of to be gained, looks good on a benchmark though.
