    Build Log: First watercooling build in a white cosmos 2

    Hello everybody! This will be my first post on this forum so i'm a bit new to this.
    I've started this build a few months back in 2012 and i'm currently still building it, so i'm a bit slow but i enjoy doing it.
    This will be the first modifications that I've done on a case and the first water cooling build for me.
    I expect that mistakes will be made (Actually already have been made) and hope to learn a lot from this build.

    Here's a list of the Hardware and components that i'll be using in this build:

    Motherboard: Asus Maximus IV Extreme-Z
    CPU: Intel i5 2500k
    CPU waterblock: EK Supremacy Nickel-Plexi
    RAM: 16GB of Corsair Dominator GT 1866Mhz (CMT8GX3M2A1866C9)
    RAM waterblock: EK-RAM Dominator 4x Plexi
    Video cards: MSI GTX680 Lightning 2GB BDDR5 in 2way SLI
    Video card waterblock: EK-FC680 Lightning Acetel-Nickel (Sadly not with Plexi)
    PSU: Corsair AX850
    Chasis: Coolermaster Cosmos 2
    Pump: Alphacool D5-VPP655 with a BitsPower D5 Pump top
    Radiators: 2x AlphaCool 240mm Radiators and a XSPC 360mm Multiport radiator
    Fans: Scythe Gentle Typhoon AP-15 (For on the radiators of course )
    Fan Controller: Lamptron FC6
    Reservoir: DangerDen Clear Acrylic Rad-Reservoir (Bought it a few weeks before the company went out of business )
    HDD: Seagate Barracuda 750GB and Seagate Barracuda 2TB

    And here are the pictures, i haven't taken very much pictures but i'll be taking more in the future.

    Before the project started:

    Do you think that the two 2x240mm rads will handle the heat from that system? With 2x GTX680 you may run short on cooling...

    very nice m8, welldone!

    my only concern would be the same as zka17, you are on the limits there on that setup with 2x 240s. i would at the very least add 1 additional 120x rad

    2x240's and a 360 radiator as well it says

    Otherwise, yes, you would have probably been correct.

    Ooops! He really says + a XSPC 360mm Multiport radiator... - sorry, Kalka, somehow I missed it... and thanks, Mankz, to pointing it out...

    But then this will be a perfect build!

    Thank you for your awesome replies everyone, and yes i'll be using a 360mm radiator that will be mounted in the top of the case in a push configuration.

    The owner is a really nice guy and the service is awesome!
    He actually made a drawing on my package which was actually a big surprise.

    This is the drawing on the package:

    I'm sure it's a spammer counter measure.
