    I posted this a couple of weeks ago.

    Then I purchased two GTX480's off these forums, and a corsair 800D.
    Then got some more Watercooling gear, and came up with this.
    Got it leak tested and going last night, no lights or cooling dye yet, so it's not totally finished, cosmetically.

    Thanks mate, I was blown away that it all worked out so well, I've done plenty of projects before, but I'm glad I got no leaks and no bad measurements.

    Temps are pretty good, and oddly enough, my CPU runs COLDER in this loop with two 480's than it did in my single CPU loop in the first picture.

    Both were good block mounts, The only thing I can put it to is having two rads before the CPU in the loop, or a combination of that and a better mount.

    I put all3 blocks on very very tight, I was worried about killing my 480's by how tight they needed to be for a flush fit.

    Thanks, I was gonna send you a picture!
    Awesome case, now it's insanely heavy, the desk is feeling it.

    =D I know right, this is weird for me


    Crunchie, it's amazing how shorted the tubes are with compression fittings!

    I was going to run 7/16 ones all-round but Koolroom had them out of stock, so I kept with 1/2" barbs and 7/16" tubing with no clamps. (no leaks ftw)

    Was going to stick with barbs myself, but the compression fittings look better, I reckon.
    Nearly slipped a disc lifting my case though :tongue:

    Aye, I've got some 1/2" comp fittings with angles, they are so damn heavy!

    Honestly I think both look good in their own way, comps are just so much easier

    Yea, that's my only complaint with the 800D is soo damn heavy, and has no good places to get a good grip on to carry :wired:

    Not that it's hideous, overpriced, and a piece of steel shit?

    I think the reason that more than one case per size exists is due to personal preference being a huge factor, personal preference means not everyone is gonna like it.

    So there really wasn't much point in you saying anything,

    The reason different cases exist it to accommodate different sized hardware. Corsair saw a section in the market and released a barge of a case.

    Had one of these cases since November 09, got my watercooling setup done in it and it didnt really look that impressive to be honest, the case is heavy as fuck compared to my HAF X which is also steel, I'd take the HAF X over the Obsidian anyday.
