So, the less tubing you use the better it is for your whole system?
And i think better taking the Noctua as you said.
One quick question, can i with the Corsair 800D place te resorvoir in it without making wholes in te case?
(Example if i wanna hang it up with a bracket.)

Thanks you helped me alot.

You need a decent amount of tubing just don't use a lot of slack just enough. I'm not familiar with the bracket so you might need to drill holes but the case is made of aluminum so drilling should not be a problem. You MIGHT be able to attach it to the drive bays but I'm not sure. If iz comes on sometime this week he might have more info about it but you can always pick it up and test it out but its up to you. As for the noctua fans they are low rpm but the way its designed, it pulls the warm air right out. And if you want to control the fan speed their is a nice product on newegg.com. Look up NZXT and their is an external controller called the sentry LXE. I am using one and it works like a charm. Just a bit of extra info.

Because you are going with a 200mm body your going to have to drill holes to use the mounting hardware fully (top and bottom bracket). There is no location where the brackets would fit fully with that much of a gap between them.

As a side note there is no real "performance" benefit from going with the 200mm body over smaller sizes. The only real benefit from the larger size is from a maintenance point of view. As it is easier to fill and keep filled and when priming to loop.

In regards to the tubing, the less work the fluid has to do to go around the loop the better. Just try to make the loop efficient there are sometimes where a bit of extra tubing is a better option than say a 90' fitting, or sometimes the extra tubing needed to not use a 90' fitting is not worth it.

You say that a smaller size doesn't make any performance difference?
So if i take a smaller Reservoir body like a 60x120mm or less, it will fit in a bracket?
Or do i still need to make holes in my case?
And a Angled Nozzle/Fitting isn't necessary?
Or is it in some situation better/comfortable for tubing?

Thanks alot

PS: does http://www.koolance.com send to europa ? I couldn't find anything about it.
I did saw it in the Top from the site under the text: Where to buy, and then Europe. And then in the list Netherlands.
But i think through http://www.koolance.com better is. For shippings cost i would pay, no problem.

It won't make a performance difference, all the res is, is a cylinder just to hold the liquid. You don't need to go overboard on how much coolant you need in the res. So a 60x120 would be fine and as for the bracket, you still may need to put some holes in the case to have it hold. Angled nozzles are necessary for certain situations so you can use them just don't go crazy. As for shipping I don't know if they do ship to europe, you can call them but I believe they do but don't take my word for it.

I saw that for watercooled cases alot of Corsairs 800D cases where used.
Most of them where 800D, but is a Corsair 650D big enough? Because i like to have the fact there's a USB 3.0 on it and it a Midi-Tower.
Or is 800D better for watercooling?
Upgrade my graphics card to 2x Sapphire 6950.

I have not talked to anyone using the 650D, my yearly Lan party is in a couple weeks. Last year I had the only Corsair case out of ~400 people. This year I expect to see a 650D or two and maybe another 800D. If I see an liquid cooled I'll try to take a few pictures etc.

Usually people will go for the bigger case however for the additional room and clearances when liquid cooling.

The 800D does have 2 optional accessories.
-Front USB upgrade kit. Adds front USB 3.0 ports
-SATA 3 hot swap upgrade panel. Replaces the poorly thought out SATA 2 panel with an improved stat 3 panel and has a better cable layout.

One of them is ~= $10 the other ~=$20 don't remember which was more expensive without looking it up. The reason the 800D doesn't ship with them is because development was started before USB 3.0 / SATA 3 was really ready. And they would have lost a lot of money refitting all of the cases that were already ready to ship.

Is it necessary to have a extra Pump, because i have now 2x Sapphire 6950 in crossfire and i wanted to liquid cool that too.
So one pump is enough for 1 CPU and 2x GPU?
What should you suggest?

Thanks alot

with a PMP-400 or higher 1 is enough for that yes. 2 is always ideal but 1 is sufficient.

Edit: Didn't see any 600T's there.
