Watercooling Corsair 800D Advice needed, So many options.... - Page 2

post #11 of 16
If you cut holes for the tubes probably.. using stock holes the tubes are already difficult to fit lol

The res is from forum member FrozenQ, it's a t-virus.. his thread's a little lower that yours in the section

I'll try to snap pictures of the completed loop tonight so you can see the tubing with three rads lol

Looking at your picture again, you are definitely right. Seems like 1 fan is fine but 2 would be difficult. I forgot about the fittings

It would seem like a 45 degree rotary would be easier to direct the tubing out from bottom. Can you check if it's possible to fit a BP T line at the rad and still direct the tube out?

Questions:
- I've seen lots of builds, I think the people who opted not to put a rad at rear is mainly because the rad may block the chipset block. Am I correct about this?
- I recently saw someone use an RX480 up top, but instead of installing 4 fans and cutting a hole up top, he simply installed 3 fans on the rad. One part of the rad is not being fan cooled. I could go with this option and omit the rear radiator. Saving RM30-40. I could still use a RX120 at the bottom. Would I see any benefit going this way, vs option 2 and 4? Also, is it better to stick to 360mm rad since not many casing support 480mm rad?
No way should you bother getting a 480 and not cut the top!! Get a rad grill and use all 4 fan spots. It'll take you 30 mins. There are a bazillion put 480 rad into a Corsair 800d videos on youtube. Also, I wouldn't just put a 120 in the bottom, at least a 240 in the bottom if you are going to go thru the effort. Again, there's a lot of videos on Youtube on this topic as well. My own case uses a 480 top, 120 back, 240 bottom. And if space is an issue, just skip the 120 in the back. You don't need it with your parts.

okay so I've taken a couple of shots.. I think it gives a good idea of what space you have..

Mind you, I constrained myself to cut the case as least as possible.. actually only drilled the fill port and two holes to mount the res.



I've placed the rad as close to the side panel as possible to give as much room as I could for the wires in the back


If I were to place a single 140 in push pull I think I'd try to cut ''U'' shaped holes for the tubes.. would be easier to install/remove if you can simply push the rad with fans in and pull it out if needed..


I'm pretty sure this is kinda the maximum you can go for the back radiator.. I'd do push/pull with an external fan..

Thanks for the pictures! This guy had feser xchange all over, and the are slightly thicker than the RX series. So i think having the RX120 at the back is possible. Now I wonder if I should go RX120 push pull at the bottom or SR1 140:

Oh btw, there's a bit of shadow on the left side of the 140mm, I take it that it's a perfect fit at the bottom without it touching the psu rails on the left, correct? Did you just leave the rad sitting at the bottom or did you tape it down?
