Oh I've definitely thought of it, I've been actually eying this project here:

That thread outlines a procedure of installing an internal rad, a very clever placement, but it requires serious work, look here:


From what I can see, this is the method used:



But I wouldn't know where to begin, I've never done such a project, and its extremely risky to do a mod such as that with no experience. I have no idea how he moved the HDD's up, or what that thing on the left side is.

Also as another pointed out, it appears he isn't getting proper intake/exhaust with air. I don't see any exhaust fans except the original 120 at the top. The fans at the bottom are intake. So if the rad is at the bottom, all the hot air is staying in the case more than it should.

If it's that big of an issue (and I can't believe I'm saying this) you might want to return them for a 590 instead... It's supposedly relatively quiet.

Of course, then all OCing goes out the window.
I wouldn't care if OC'ing was gone, but I didn't get with the 590's originally because for fear of micro-stutter, and those 590's are still quite loud, I would probably rather put the extra $300-400 cost of dual 590's toward better cooling.

But really, those are amazing cards, def look at all options...would buying a bigger case for more work room be an option?
Sadly not, I'm quite attached to the design of this case, I haven't seen any other quite like it, and I still plan to mod it aesthetically to resemble this:

Well I just tried setting fan thresholds again, but it didn't work well. In Bad Company 2, the cards were averaging 90 degrees @ 85% fan speed, which yes, is incredibly loud.

That does look like a serious mod job. If I was you, I'd use a bay res/pump combo and have the radiator outside sitting next to the case. Though that would depend on the amount of room you have around the case. I'm doing that with my 360 rad right now since it won't fit inside. It doesn't look pretty atm, but I'll take the quite/coolness over the aesthetics any day. Or at least until I have enough money for a 800d. Just a thought.

I have zero, absolutely no room around the case, if watercooling is to occur, it has to be inside.

Can't mount the rad on the back, no room. Also, I personally wouldn't do that anyway as I see it as kind of an eye sore.

What do you think of the mod ProStock did though (posted above), it looks like you have a similar size radiator, would you ever consider doing something similar?

It's an awesome build,the rad would fit ok, it's having to cut and fit all the hard drives and stuff which would be the mission.

gpu temps are in the low/mid 40's now

if u have the fans set to auto,then try moving extra air around the gpu using table fans and keep the side pannel open while gaming.

Also I just realized if I want to go with watercooling, I should return the lightnings as they don't make non-reference waterblocks, as far as I'm aware.
