    As soon as i'll be home. Anyway, with 350.05 hotfix driver is around 25k. With 344.75 before the liquid cooling installation i've hit 26.8K.

    This evening if i'm not too late from work, i'll install 344.75, gpu at 1.6Ghz and CPU at 5Ghz, and let's see if i can get to 27k

    here is the run i did in january with lower frequencies but better benching driver (344.75)

    Edit: just realized that my phone picture show a blueish color, for real it looks a lot more NVidia green

    Yesterday i didn't had the chance to run some benchmark as promised, will do today. Instead i've received my NZXT HUE RGB.... guys that things is really well done and works perfectly, i can chose the color as i would do in an alienware system (just not with software). So fun! will post some picture later

    EDIT:

    Added run with 344.75 WHQL, is much better... but latest drivers are better for the games i play, so..

    Anyway, 5Ghz CPU, 1.6Ghz GPUs, performance run of 3Dmark11 and Firestrike, temperatures still in check. To add some heat i set +100mV to the unicore and set it to 4.5Ghz.

    Btw don't know if you have a drain valve or not, couldn't see one in the pics you posted. This is an afterthought now but these will come in real handy when the time to drain your loop inevitably comes.

    I did arrange the loop in the way that when drainage is needed i just disconnect the reservoir from his brackets and remove the cap, the tube allow me to make it the lower point from where i can drain the whole system by gravity. Just the final leftover water can be drained by blowing on the inlet tube on the reservoir. Is not a valve, but it works.
