    Well... Putting this thing back together again slowly since I had to RMA my mobo for a DIMM A1 slot failure. Board comes in next week because my vendor was out of stock otherwise I would have received sooner...

    Here's a teaser... 3x290X + 3x EKWB Blocks... I still have to leak test the stack.

    Also switching mouse to Mionix Avior 7000. Have a Tripp-Lite LC1800 Line Conditioner on order too...

    leak test before putting inside the case, just put the tubes in top as it stands now and its easyer to see if you have a leakage now and you can see from where too if so.
    harder to do inside the case.

    I know. I am going to test the GPU stack for 4 hours before I do the entire system leak test. The External 1080 rad + rad box comes Tuesday. Unfortunately I'm still waiting on a 1300W eVGA PSU (Stock issues) I'm using exclusively for the GPU stack and my mobo is still out for RMA because my vendor was having more stock issues. GRR!!!

    I need more fans ... Got my 1080mm Nova Radiator in today and put *some* fans on it.. Totally worth it to have 4x 290X.

    Phobya G-Changer 1080 Radiator
    9x XSPC 1650rpm Xinrulian Radiator Fan



    As you can clearly see, not enough fans... It's not very loud either as they will be controlled by a lamptron fan controller at half speed.

    Note the Dual PSUs in the bottom. I am just waiting the quick disconnects for my external rad and the UT60 140mm which come tomorrow then it's going to be done!!!! It runs however but I have to turn my 2 through 4th PCI lane off. I don't have the rad space to dissipate the entire 290X stack hooked up yet... Don't want to hook it up until I get quick disconnects or it's going to be insanely awkward and heavy to drain and set up again.
