Ok guys, update time!

first off, this is not in order really. I have alot of pics and dont want to sort them.

one thing: if my pump cannot handle the dual mcr320's and a gtxblackice240, ill need a second pump. If that happens, then the black ice and one mcr320 will cool the cpu, and one mcr320 with new pump will cool the gpu. But, the cpu loop will be uv blue, and the gpu loop uv purple. They will intertwine and be godly. i hope. But if im lucky i wont need a second pump, because ive already dropped to much money into this mod :P

First is the new placed hd racks before and after a test fit of my pump



this is the grill for the top 2x120 rad

and the actual case top:



old pump:

new pump:


heres the new case layout, one ontop of the other


theres a piece of blue plexi between the two cases

Only if the rads can't effectively handle the heat output.

Otherwise the added restriction makes any performance gains negligible.

i have a question. I have the ddc 3.2 pump with the acetal top installed on it. I made a loop today, and the pump leaked out of two holes on the bottom of the pump, each had an engraved 1 besides them. Any clue as to why? I made sure the screws were really tight and that helped some. Should i cover the hole with hot glue?
