About this mod / project:
Dual loop with redundant d5 pumps. One loop for the GPU + Aquaero 5 lt waterblock and another loop for the ram + CPU block. GPU loop – It is a reverse case so the white rads (XSPC 480 and 240) will handle the two titan blocks. This loop is with fittings in white and dark grey liquid. CPU loop – The single 560 mm HWlabs rad on the bottom compartment will handle this loop. The rad, fittings and reservoir are black with white liquid (either Aurora 2 or Pastel).
