Hi

Very awesome solution for your GPU blocks. Have you thought of making a acrylic window to fit in the space where the one on the original heatsink used to be? That way you maintain the original blower properties and all the memory/vrm heat goes out the back of the card. Just drill holes through the replacement window for the pipes

Indeed I have, great minds huh?! I even have some "glass effect" green acrylic lying around from a previous build although that's 10mm thick! The issue would be getting it exactly like the original profile, quite a bit of work involved. It's something I'm still considering, I'll see how much time I have left.

i do enjoy build logs.
And i give this one my thumbs up

I do have a question though. (something i have never comprehended)
Why go parallel?
Is it for the aesthetics?

Thanks for the thumbs up .

Why go parallel? A number of reasons:
1. The GPUs are normally in parallel in my previous builds anyway and that is for aesthetics as well as ease of install, so I thought I'd go parallel with the rest as well, creating a theme.
2. On the aesthetics side, if I were to go series with all blocks I would need a very long return pipe and that would just look odd. So instead this build will have two parallel pipes feeding and returning as you will soon see .
3. I've done parallel before, years ago in a build called 'Parallel Hex'. I learned a lot from that build and proved parallel is possible. However I borked that build by not using a big enough radiator; lesson learned! The thingy in my avatar is a relic from that build.
4. I wanted this build to look a bit different to my previous build 'Black In Control' despite using a lot of the same hardware. The parallel ethos will be it's redeeming feature. As well as two stonking green glowing 980Ti's .

Cheers mate!

A little update for the tonight; fitted the Koolance PLT-UN40F cold plate and LEDs to the other 980Ti.



Temporarily installed in them in the case to check out the lighting, spacing and tube routing.



I knew I was going to have to remove some of the case to allow different options of tube routing and to be able to see the left hand graphics card.

There's only a few mm between the left graphics card and the fittings of the right one.



Still looking at other options, I'll see how the 45 degree fittings look when installed or if a manual bend of the pipework will make it.

Thanks for reading .
