Windows 7: Would like to have some opinions

Thanks essenbe I'm going to do some more looking.

You would think Corsair would have all the necessary cables but I will check. SLI is a maybe.
Water cooling the GPU is a maybe. Have to see how cool/hot the Gpu runs under load. From what I have see with reviews the GPU tops out about 60 deg C.
The bay mounted reservoir I was going to mount some place else.
I haven't been able to find a kit with any other type of reservoir with duel D5 pumps. (Open for suggestions).
Maybe I should see If I can buy all the pieces and parts separately and have a better choice. That should take me about a day or so.
Again thank you for the help.

Jack, as far as Corsair, if you look at the cables that come with it , it lists 2 ATX cables and 4 pcie cables. What they don't say is that both ATX cables and 4 pcie cables cannot be connected at the same time. I got caught like that and argued with Corsair for over a week to get it straight. I told them it was false advertising.

For the dual D5 pumps. The D5 is a strong pump and 2 is not necessary. It is good for redundancy, in case one goes out on you. But, one will cool your CPU, and GPU without any problem. But I have seen some reservoirs for dual pumps. I don't recall seeing them in a kit though. as for mounting the reservoir somewhere else, I've considered the same thing, but with 2 radiators in my system, I just can't find any where I could mount it. But, with just 1 radiator in the top, you should be able to do it. I've seen it done several times by others.

I watched the video for the case and just sat here in amazement while watching them show various floor mounted radiator configurations, all the time wondering, "Where the big fat hairy heck does one put the PSU?". Nice looking case, otherwise.

You can either put a power supply in the sided the motherboard resides or in the side behind the motherboard. Or your can install two power supplies.

I don't think I'm going to have a Corsair power supply cable problem.

I would lose the temp. sensor as it's just more to go wrong and leak as you can monitor temps without it. Also lose the fill bottle and just use a turkey baster. Also you should consider EK dual rotary fittings and use rigid tubing and the plasticizers in soft tubing is known to breakdown in water loops.

Just some other idea's to keep in mind either now of for future expansions to the loop.....can't wait to see the rig when it's all done !

Doing this you lose the coils for a red stabilized coolant like mayhem.

jack, Here are some 45's. I use 2 on the block and 2 on the rad. You just neeed a G 1/4 compression fitting for each one. There are a lot of ways to do a drain. You can use the T and place it where you can hide the hose, use another G1/4 compression fitting to one port and a hose connected to it. run the hose where it can't be seen and put the female end of the disconnect on the end. It will act as a stop fitting. Save an extra length of hose with the male end and save it somewhere. When you need to drain it connect the male end to the female end And the other end with the male fitting in a bucket. It would work just like a quick connect on an air compressor. Water will only flow when both male and female are fit together. I know I didn't explain that right, but maybe you get the idea. here are the 45's

Just remember, you will need a Compression fitting for every thing you buy. The darn fittings will bleed you dry. And there are other ways to do a drain too. Once you get them and look at how you are going to put things together it will become clear of what you need to make it work. Just have a plan of exactly what you want to do and how you want the hoses to run. A lot of people make a rough drawing of the case and draw it out. It helps to see how it will work and what other options you may have that you hadn't thought of, and what fittings you may need. It sounds complicated and will be your first time. After that it is not so bad. It's really fairly simple, just something different. An old Sailor could figure it out pretty quick.

Once I get my hands and eye balls on all the parts and make a dry run I will have a idea whats what.
I watched so many cooling videos I think my brain is having another fart experience.
Thanks for the links.

My desktop PC is getting on in years - it's a 3GHz P4 I bought back in '05 or so.

i end up removing deleting/uninstalling Eset Smart security as it really damaged my PC hugely (i got 4 pcs with 2 of them with that product and with windows 7 it damaged a lot like my bios) so i'm going to use microsoft security essentials since its anti virus spyware malware and malwarebytes...
