I'll be using most of my current hardware in this build. I just ordered 2 GTX1080 Founders Edition which will replace my 3 GTX980's. I'm water-cooling this build and it will be going into a LDCooling PC-V8 black/black case. The foam board is a rough idea on what I'm doing. I'm going with a black/red color scheme to match my EVGA X99 Classified and Corsair K70 keyboard/Corsair M45 mouse, both which have red lighting.

    Just ordered most of the water cooling parts. Still need fans, fluid, hard line, fittings and misc. items.

    It's a very open chassis so I think you'll have plenty of room to work.

    I hope so. I'll be using 3 480 radiators. Overkill? Maybe. I'm online now looking at different builds of various cases getting ideas. When the radiators come in I can mount them to see what room I have to work with seeing that the rads are the biggest item. I want to mount the pumps (two loops) in the lower part of the case.

    I know several people who have 3 480 radiators so I wouldn't brand it as overkill.

    I'll be using one for the CPU and two for the video cards (two 1080's, but that could change). I've been measuring and everything looks like it will fit where I want it. I need to check on mounting of the EK pump top.

    Look forward to progress pics, when they come. That bending kit should work quite nice, I have the same one. Got it from a generous forum member. Enjoy your build!!

    My two GeForce GTX 1080 Founder's Edition cards came in
     
     
    I'm going to run the Heaven benchmark and see how they compare to my three GTX980's. I don't have the HB bridge yet.

    Guess that didn't go as planned. I modded my power supply so that I only had two 6 pins for each graphics card. I went looking for the 8-pin plugs I had and can't find them. The plugs I do have don't fit, they must be for CPU power.

    You can order extra cables for a Corsair 1200i from Corsair or special modded cables from many cable mod websites.

    I have almost all the parts. I still need hardline, fittings and fluid.
