I know there has been some talk recently around building a large loop in a Haf X:

http://www.overclock.net/water-cooling/1124275-welcome-hell-dual-loop-extreme-water.html

Could potentially offer some ideas for those using that case...this one is jammed packed with a dual loop running an i7 980 and Tri-SLI 580's.

OMG that is clean. I read every page looking for temps, but there were none (dunno how that never came up). I wonder what kind of delta he's getting with 3x580s on a single RX360.

I'm just talking about the delta of loop 2. 3x580s on one 360 seems to be a stretch.

Yeah, but I thought he was running dual loops with a shared res. This would allow you to have the benefits of dedicated loops and pumps, but all water would technically be shared and the rads would do the work for all components. However- not sure if this is how he has it set up.

Well he's got a res listed for the first loop (XSPC) and second loop (Phobya Balancer 150), and he's got two pumps listed for the second loop (both variations of the D5 - why didn't he just buy 3 of one type or something?). I'm not really sure why he did what he did...

Yeah, I see that now. I'm not sure either...so...running 3 pumps for 2 loops? Would have been fine with the dual D5 top and a single loop or run a hybrid dual loop with single res. Good catch...I also don't follow this thinking...overly redundant, it appears.

That is amazing I have almost the identical setup if you look at the pic under my sig you can see a pic of my pc. I have modified the case however and my rads and pumps are in my desk. I even have the same cpu and two loops one for the cpu and ram and one for the three video cards.
