No, not really, but it was in large part to the case. Everything was a royal pain. Nothing fit like it was supposed to, and with the bay reservoir, I'll have to get an external DVD or put the DVD above the reservoir and undo the reservoir to fill it or take the DVD out. No other configuration will work. I really don't use one that often, but still need to have a DVD. You can't put fans on the bottom of the rad if you have heatsinks on top of the board and can't use the top 5.25" bay because the rad blocks it. It is a nice case and very customizable, but not for real water cooling. An H 100 would work great, or a 35mm thick rad would work too, but a 60mm thick rad, no. The 360 fits but sticks inside the top bay, a 240 would work good. So, aside from the water cooling which was a little pain, everything has been a struggle.

Yeah that sucks, and I am guessing you don't want to spend any more on another rad, or case and so on? And if it helps, I had some troubles with WC in the beginning too, Burnt my first pump,second one failed on arrival. Went through 2 different motherboards,bought 2 gpu waterblocks,240rad a 650pump and a 250mm reservoir and never used them,they are still in a box in another room. And I also need to remove my dvd drive if I want to fill my loop, I made so many changes it doesn't even look the same as when I first planned it. But the upside is you started on the cooling,you will notice no h100 will come close to your loop,and you have to admit it looks allot more awesome and it had to be fun. And as an added bonus, you can if at some point you want to,change your loop and make the changes or fixes you wanted in this build. You no longer have to be wary of watercooling,you are already a watercooler,and in a few weeks(hope it's allot quicker) you will want to advance on it.

If it keeps this 3770K cool, I seriously doubt it. My GPU doesn't need water. The highest it has been is 63, and that was running Heaven on max and Mark 3D 11. In games it never goes over 55. Idle is about 31-32.

@Mike. I'm glad you think it is funny. Reminds me of the Cajun who was being chased by a bear. he said "he looked back and the bear had his mouth open like he was laughing, and I didn't see a damn thing funny about it."

Haha,okay, sorry but I wasn't referring to gpu's, I meant updating your existing loop,ie: shortening tubing,thinner rad and so on,but aslong as you like it.

Steve,
This could be a great addition to prevent kinking and offer some color, maybe the red would be wicked?

I do wish more gpu makers would consider making backplates for their cards, it just look awesome and as I understood from reading a bit it helps a bit with keeping the card a bit cooler, when I was looking for a new card I was checking the evga just because of that but every review I read stated that the cards was running hot so ended up with a asus DCII card, and after seeing Alsisgevat WC evga cards it made me sad ^^, I want to do a WC riged but it have to be when I have a job so I dont need to worry as much about the money if something would go wrong

My EVGA card does not run hot, and it has a backplate. I have read reviews that say the same thing, but this is the second EVGA 670 I have had and I was suprised how cool it ran.

When I read about this the 6xx series was not out, thats why I decided on my asus one because I read good reviews about the fan and temps, and I am surprised about it when the fans run at 50% and I have the card at max voltage that the card allows which is 1.09, I can up the core from 925, to 1100 and the card top out at 69c with Heaven on all settings at max.

But for me nothing beats a full water cooling block, they are just so nice to look at, cant wait for when the day comes when I can put together a completer water cooled rig
