This is the CoolerMaster Aquagate Viva dual GPU cooler. It can be used to cool two video cards or one video card and the CPU. The pump is intergrated onto one of the water blocks and includes flow indicator and alarm. Dual 70mm fans on the rad and come pre-filled with coolant

This is where I will mount the rad. Normally this would be used for cable management.

CoolerMaster says to mount this into a drive bay, a pci slot or rear or the case but this seemed to be the perfect place to me.

Testing the mount. I found I needed some support on the left side of the rad. So I cut the original pci mount and used it to support the rad properly.
