Hey guys, new to the forum and I just got my tracking number from newegg for my M5F. I am just going over the final things as I am about to order everything for my build. I wanted to check with you all to see if the Dominator GT 16GB Memory was compatible as I couldn't find it on the QVL from the support site.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233230

Guys..... the worst thing ever has happened... have had all my compnents since may (when the formula was SUPPOSED to be released) got it from newegg 20 minutes after it went up friday night. rush processing. overnight shipping. are you ready for the bad news? I got a tracking number but it wasnt updated. Newegg says they dont have it......UPS says they dont have it..... who has it? apparently the devil

Don't worry too much, the information on Newegg is fed by the carrier and surely UPS have the box but will update the tracker when they will effectively sort it out for shipment.
If you have no informations tomorrow then there is a problem.

Check later tonight. Its probaby inbetween processing. From when the driver picks up the product from the newegg facility, to when it gets processed and sorted in the UPS shipping warehouse.

I am a liquid cooling noob, looking to do my first loop which for the meantime be CPU only.

My inspiration:
I'd like to get as close as i can to the appearance of this build, in terms of color scheme:
http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?278143-Cosmos-II-(Liquid-Edition)

I have the same cosmos 2 Ultra case, and was interested in this watercooling package which both appears to be a decent deal, and simplifies some of the complexity for me:

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/15140/ex-wat-203/XSPC_Raystorm_RX360_Extreme_Universal_CPU_Water_C...

For right now, i'm planning on getting the maximus V formula/ThunderFX board, but i'm still contemplating the extreme as well.

Questions:
Will this rad fit in the top of a cosmos 2 without hitting the board? (pull config, fans above, rad below the top of the case)
Does anyone have any opinions on the dual bay pump/reservoir? Are there better ones out there? My initial impression is that i like the idea of a dual (or maybe even triple) bay reservoir/pump, cause it keeps everything clean/compact and out of the way... are there downsides i'm not factoring in?
Is this pump really strong enough to additionally handle 2 or 3 graphics cards?
Are there any other kits which would look better with the formula?
Is it really worth it to use the smaller barbs/tubing in order to use the fusion waterblock with the formula?

I'm a gamer, and my goal performance wise is a rock solid overclock on a 3770k, as high frequency as possible without significant risk tot he chip and without going over 70C under load. I'd be very happy if i could run 4.8ghz or 4.9ghz at 55-60C.

Please let me know what you think.

The pump and bay reservoir are OK but you will have to place it in the two bottom bays and the Top one will be condemned unless you make minor modification of the holes to displace the rad a little bit backwards. The fittings MUST be place to the rear.
Sadly the rad will not fit your case (I have the same) because the Rad on the top MUST be a slim factor one (approx 35 mm or below) to not touch the board. Here you have a performance rad by XSPC of 60mm thick.
Moreover fittings could condemned the mSata PCIe combo of the M5F. I will be able to confirm that or not when I will receive the board to complete my own build 😉

Per the post by the guy that put the rig you linked together (see below), I would say that you will probably have a problem with that rad in the kit.

The rad in the kit is 58.5mm thick per your FrozenCPU link, as well as per this article:

http://skinneelabs.com/xspc-rx360-v1/

and the EX cited below is 33mm per this review:

http://forums.bit-tech.net/showthread.php?t=218489

Its also worth mentioning that due to the motherboard locating so close to the ceiling of the chassis, you can also only use a slim radiator like the XSPC EX series as anything thicker will hit the motherboard and those hoping to run push/pull, forget it.


Edit: See that this was answered while I was running around trying to find links. 🙂

Do you think it's realistic to push through a 33mm triple rad (top) and maybe a thicker (maybe 60mm) single 120mm rad at the top back exhaust? Also there's the double rad slot down bottom as an option. (doesnt this exhaust the heat into the case though?)

Do you think its worth it using 3/8 tubing so that i can use the formula's fusion block? How much of a benefit is that really? (does it matter for a 5ghz or below overclock? or should I just ignore that feature and go 1/2" ID?

I'd want to keep it consistent throughout the entire loop right?
