Thanks in advance, and good job on all your works and mods here, very inspirational!

A 140mm will not fit at the back, but it might fit at the top (not sure about the thickness though).

The top panel can accomodate a 200mm fan so I imagine with a little doing you could probably mount the H90 in that position. As Jkuhn mentioned you should be concerned about the thickness for sure as there's not a whole lot of room between the I/O panel and the 8 pin power cable and the top of the case. If I could sneak the Thermaltake Water 2.0 Extreme in there without modding I'm sure you could snake a 140mm in there. Might just have to get a bit creative. You should most definitely put your CPU underwater. Even though the Enforcer is pretty decent in terms of airflow I was very happy with the results of switching to water cooling.

I agree with your point about water cooling the CPU. My 3570k is cooled by a H60 (push-pull) and is OC'd to 4.4 GHz and the max temp I've seen out of it was 86 Celsius under full load. Although saying that, some air coolers could match this performance, although from what I've seen, after paying out for one of those you may as well have invested in a pre-filled.

Just a suggestion, (and I'm pretty sure people have already done it in this case) you could make a mounting bracket for the fan and rad and fit it to the end of your 5.25" bay slots closest to the motherboard. You'd have the unfortunate downside of being unable to use those bays for their proper purpose, but external DVD/CD/BD drives aren't all too expensive nowadays and the benefits of water cooling are great smile.gif

Perfect timing. I just picked up a Cooler Master Seidon 120m for $29.99 (with $30 mail in rebate) so I said why not. As you can see, I only have it in a pull configuration and maybe I'll add another Blademaster for a push/pull configuration. I haven't tested it under load yet but so far, 33C idle (ambient is about 25C). I still have my Hyper Evo 212 on the side as a backup. The Seidon 120m was super easy to install (I have an AM3 board).

I'm just at auto overclock with the AMD 8350 @ 4.3Ghz. So far, 34C idle, 44C load with push/pull. Difference with only pull is that on load it's 46C.

Thanks for the answers, right now I have a megaflow 200 on top (which helped a lot in terms of case temps) and my CPU is on a TX3 which is horrible loud a full speed (as my 2500k so OCed @ 4.5 ghz 24/7), so I need something more quieter and that can dissipate more heat.

Any list of the compatible water coolers? I'm pretty sure that all 120 coolers at rear position but what about the bigger with the thickness restriction?

Hey man, If you're looking for Corsair coolers, heres a thread you can have a look at, H80 / H80i / H90 / H100 / H100i / H110 Case Compatibility Thread . It's a bit outdated but its good enough.

Like you said, basically it fits any 120mm at Rear. At top, you can fit the H100/i, but it will not be using the holes. A lot of people that have the 200mm screw them on the mesh.

Basically all up to you.

Basically any radiator that measures in the 240mm range could be doable in some sort of way. Wether it be the H100, H100i, Thermaltake Water Pro or Extreme, or any other 240mm they're all going to be a tight fit as this really isn't the most internal water cooling friendly case in the midtower range. Every clearance is going to be different as: your mobo would be different from mine, I/O panels have different top positions (or even the armor on the ASUS Sabertooth), and every radiator has somewhat different thickness and lengths. You'll just have to make some measurements after researching some kits, externally mount something, or cross your fingers and mod your case. My 2cents.gif

Heya guys,
I have been an avid follower (but not a member sadly), of this members club and would like to link you to my build log for a water cooled storm enforcer over at OCAU (username NinjaStickman). thumb.gif enjoy!

Looking good, I'm rather interested on how you're going to pull this up internally.

I'll keep an eye on it, and put some 2cents.gif

Also, why are you not a member here tongue.gif

Come join the community smile.gif

I'm from Australia too, Sydney though.
