Hey!

This is my first watercooling build. Thanks to everyone for their help and advice and thanks to Dazmode for the outstanding service! Overall I'm fairly happy but not entirely satisfied. Temperatures are excellent! After 4 hours of gaming, my 5770 peaked at 25*C whereas it was previously hitting 67*C. I would say that's a fair drop. My CPU is also seeing a huge drop in temps.

I just feel my layout is lacking, so any tips/suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Looking good man! It seems like your tubing is optimal (imo) anyways. Hows your load temps on your cpu?

Looks good! Love the black interior on the 800D. I had the 'inlet' of the res facing inwards so that the barb was hidden, but that is being picky.

Do you think it is possible to fit 6 fans in a push-pull on the rad? Its the setup I have, and wondered if it would work in the 800D.

I think he has it in push/pull config.

I only have push but push/pull will work.

Thank you everyone!

After a few hours of P95 I'm sitting at about 38/39*C @ 4ghz - 1.5v. It peaked at 42*C @ 4.3ghz - 1.55v so not too bad I don't think considering the voltage?

Chris: As Prolab pointed out, you can in fact run push/pull as I am. As you can see, it does fill the top section pretty good leaving just enough space for the motherboard. If you were using something like a Swiftech MCR360 slim rad, you'd gain a bit more space if need be.

Thanks Reyzac. It is actually the Feser Red UV. Under UV lights it goes a bit orange which is kind of what appealed to me.

Thanks for the feedback!
