Holy radiators that's a bit of overkill there bro you planing on a few more Titans in the future? Also the SP120 do have an audible hum incase you were unaware (7 SP120's and 3 AF140's in my system). You will love those monsta rads though.

I would not recommend running that man rads in serial. The 2 monsta rads will me more than enough for what you have.

Actually all he really needs is just the 480 monsta and that's it. The 480 you have is the equivalent of a 60mm 360 and a 60mm 240.

Wouldn't it be smart to wait a month, perhaps 2 in order to get the 3930k cheaper or a 4930k? Also, my personal choice of fans would be Noctua, if you can stand the colours.
Don't have much luck with corsair fans...

In any case, ( pun intended ) a very nice build!

I find Corsair fans have an annoying sound to them and as mentioned that's just silly overkill on the watercooling, probably do more harm than good flow wise.

I agree with waiting a couple of weeks for the 4930K. It will cost less than the 3930K and give you a bit more oomph.

You probably won't see it go over 35C ever, unless you are running 120hz monitor.

Very nice setup I went for the UV green theme though. But its an interesting idea to powder coat the case. I considered it also but when using a green theme I thought it might be an over kill on the colours. I could be wrong however so look forward to seeing yours.

I just hope you haven't used Mayhem Pastel Dye in your loop since it reacts badly, very quickly with the primochill tubing. And it will be cloudy in just a day or two.

*I might go for the gigabyte orange mobo if I upgrade to the haswell CPU. I see so many going for red themes now, even green is wide used. Black and Orange might be a fun combo to try, with some mayhem dye.

edit2* Just realised, you guys are getting ripped off in the UK. I don't even those prices, and I live in Norway, one of the most expensive countries in the world. My 900D was about 50 cheaper

Those temps are awesome!! Just as I expected!

GPU never over 31C..... holy crap it is true what they say GPU's love water cooling!

Excellent build. What did you use for the water. Did you use premixed coolant or distilled water?
