    Nice power there. Do you get any coil whine from that set up? My Powercolor LCS is a little whiny (wouldn't hear it above the gfx card fan if it had one mind!).

    I'm tempted to get another 7970 for CF....

    I suffer from tinitus (ringing in the ears). If there's any kind of coil whine, I can't tell :(

    Just one without the side panel. Would like to get a better shot of the inside, that's it.

    Ah, I'm nearing 40 years old, maybe it's tinitus I've got too. :laugh:

    Well, I've been saving up for quite a while, and am ready to make my next purchase. I'm thinking of getting three EK CSQ block with an FC-link, or I can get another set of Dominators. 64GB is tempting...

    Two small updates. One, you remember these, right?

    [​IMG]

    I thought they needed some more friends to play with:

    [​IMG]

    And so I went from this:

    ...to this:

    (I've got to do something about all that red :( )

    And two, this this thing:

    Just bloody awesome! Props for you good sir! :toast:

    Please update asap, I can't wait to see those cards added to your loop!!!

    (I just realized I have similar cards as you, Sapphire and Asus reference cards, 2 only for me :( not 3...) :roll:

    Nice GPU blocks! Love the bridge as well:toast:
    Are you going to be adding these to your current loop or add another?
    Can't wait to see pics with them installed!!!

    They are going in the same loop. I'm not a fan of dual loops, at least in a case this size. If I had a Little Devil case and could put a quad rad in the bottom for the GPUs and a quad rad in the top for the CPU (& possibly mobo or more), then I might be willing to go that route.

    So what's your loop going to be like with your setup, whats your rad situation? You're going to need some ballsy rad space eh? I'm trying to redo mine currently and use 2 360 rads for cpu and 2 gpus, hopefully it'll be better than my 360 and 140

    Same rads I'm using - one 480 and one 120, and the loop is going back like it was when the EVGA X58 board was installed (search the thread for that, it's here).

    Getting ready to do some work. Here's a "before" set of temps:

    Room temp was 19.2C and the water temp was 21.1C.

    A side project. The old XT power supply I use for filling and bleeding the loop had something clanking around inside it when I picked it up. Turns out the fan fell apart and needed to be replaced.

    [​IMG]

    My storage for this rig needed proper mounting:

    [​IMG]

    Took some modder's mesh from MNPC:

    [​IMG]

    Stacked the up nice and neat:

    [​IMG]

    Crap - the SATA cables are all right-angled versions and hit eachother. Let's try this again:

    [​IMG]

    A little better, but still not enough. Need to make some more brackets:

    [​IMG]

    Much better:

    [​IMG]

    Several hours later the loop is bled and leak-tested. Time to power up (fingers crossed):

    [​IMG]

    Going to rest some & try to get rid of this headache. After this settles in I'll post the "after" temps.

    That's beautiful mate. I just grabbed my second 7970 (MSI OC version) and an EK waterblock. Unfortunately my first block is old style, 2nd is circles!

    Still, water cooled 7970's all the way :toast:

    Beautiful job t_ski! Looks terrific, I'm the slightest bit envious, but well done regardless.
    Looking forward to temps!

    I see you bought sneeky's EK water cooling set he had for sale:)
    Should match your new EK GPU water blocks nicely:toast:
    Pics please when you get the items and get them installed!!!

    What fittings are those that you are using attached to your cpu water block? It looks like I need to get something similar as I am going to use compression fittings in my next build.
