    If you're going to be fitting fans on the roof compartment, remember to fit the fan cables through before actually screwing anything into place, because you won't have much room to play around with when trying to feed them down into the system. There are no dedicated means of arranging the cables.
    Apparently my p8z68-v pro gen3 top heatsink doesn't seem like interfering the radiator which is just quite nice :P According to nzxt switch 810 specs there is room for 90mm, the rx360 is 63mm & a normal fan is 25 so I have 2mm left and the fan is almost touching the disk bay stuff.

    The d5 pump is quite expensive so I was thinking about this product http://www.xs-pc.com/products/waterc...cooling-kit-2/

    Not sure if that is a powerful pump but might be thinking using a 2nd radiator for a gpu in the future..

    Since I've gotten some new hardware I'll post my setup. :P
    I don't have any pictures since my cameras quality is very bad, especially in my room where it's dark.
    Anyhow I used to have a GTX 460 in this built, but since then replaced it with a GTX 680, hooray!

    Intel i5 3570k
    8GB G.SKill Ripjaw RAM
    240GB Mushkin Chronos Delux SSD (New)
    60GB Mushkin Chronos Delux SSD
    500GB Western Digital Caviar Black
    ASrock Extreme 4
    EVGA GTX 680 (New)
    Two Asus VE228H Monitors. (New)
    Thermaltake eSports Challenger Pro Keyboard.
    Razer Naga Molten Edition.
    SeaSonic X750 Gold Power Supply. (Was given to me as a gift from a friend... Even though it's way over kill.)

    I think I should be able to play farmville now! (joking)

    To have this made, or not... that is the question.



    A custom grill from acrylic would be nice, but I'd have to order it from one of those sites that manufacture it for you. That'd take forever... I'm also worried about restriction it would cause... Well, the design is far from final at least.

    I haven't yet. I had a thermal issue yesterday with the gpus so I reseated the blocks and bleed the system to make 110% sure all air pockets are out of it.

    It's since passed Unigine Heaven at maximum settings in SLI and the cards have NOT exceeded 37c

    Damn that's very impressive! They were on the same loop as the CPU right?

    37 Celsius... jeez. ._.

    Yep!

    Goes GPU > 240 RAD > 240 RAD > CPU then up into the 360 Rad / pump / res

    the 240's are configured so it's like this:

    Fans|Rad|Fans|Rad|Fans

    Very impressive! Nice work! I personally am not too keen on the idea of putting the rig under liquid, as much as it looks awesome, it pretty much makes LAN parties a "hell no" and needs upkeep. :P Plus a ton more fans, as much as I love how it looks, I also love how a simple cooler can look. Though if I ever got an X79-type build/something XTREEEEME, I'd waterblock it up, the mosfets, the chipset, all of it. :P

    Very nice. I like how you've taken the effort to only plug in the power cable (or have you expertly hidden all the other cables coming out the back of the PC?) for the sake of a clean and cable-free photo...appreciated ^_^
    Orange and blue LED's don't look too bad either. R3 windowed is a beautiful case...through a closeup + front photo of the insides would've been nice because TX650 is a bit of an octopus and I wanted to see how you did with the cable management :P

    But I'm just being a picky jerk, photos are photos. Thanks.

    Sadly the Tx650 is abit of an octopus like you say, the goal is to get another PSU in the future with modular cables for better management, the power cable is simply not long enough to go around the back like the rest of the cables, hence its just hanging there. the rest of the cables are indeed hidden in the back, not alot of room but it worked there are some closeups if check the gallery in the link. If i would open the backside i wouldnt look so pretty, good thing there's no window there haha

    Got myself two new monitors and got rid of the old one.
    Was never too fond of LG, but hey, two IPS monitors with pretty thin bezel for €300,- and three year warranty!

    Pretty thin screen!

    Friend of mine from Wisconsin brought me his rig to first just look at his audio stuff, not much really to do, but we decided to get him a more legit Windows copy...

    (He traded an iPad 3 for the computer on Craigslist... we're talking a 4xxx series ATi Radeon card, nothing special, some like AMD Athlon dual core I think, 4GB of RAM, 660GB HDD, lovely.)

    This is a JET ENGINE in here. My computer is so much quieter than I've ever realized, these fans are all running at 12v, I swear to God. Not to mention it has one of those back of CPU fans that is like 60 - 80mm, and lots of rainbow LEDs.. good hell.







    Will put up a video in a little bit.

    Well at least it's a CM 690 II which is a fantastic case and a modder's dream. Would do great with a fan controller (and obviously better components inside it :P).
