post #1901 of 1907
Hey all got my watercooling down but now im need of of good stand/end table/nightstand to get this thing at least 2 ft off the ground. The case will be sitting sideways so i need something that has a longer length than the case itself. Ill be going to lowes and home depot and such but just wondering if anyone has found a reasonable priced solution. It is was too big to fit on my ikea jerker desk.

Thanks

I know, these pictures are not of high quality, but it was what I coudl do at the time. Finally figured out how to remove all the "extras", and it seems a 560 will make it inside this case smile.gif

And I thought putting 480 in front was a revolution smile.gif.

Nice work but a piece of advice - don't work with WC while parts of the PC are still in the case. Believe I also don't want to detach and reattach all this stuff, but as illogical it sounds, it is faster than making your life a nightmare by working with the boards in the case. Not to mention the risk of "**** happening". thumb.gif

How hard is it to fit a radiator in the front of the case? Like a 360 or something, can I still fit HDDs there? Have 3 regular ones so.

Or would it be a silly idea to have air coming in to the case from top/bottom (360 rad on bottom, 240 + PSU on top) and have rear/front as exhaust? I guess it shouldn't make a big difference really and that would be easy to do? Unless fitting another 360 in the front is easy.

I run a XSPC RS360 in the front! Mounting is easy with 1/8 x 1" aluminum angle iron (6pcs about 1' long).
Use existing rad mounting holes (screw into bracket) then use existing 5 1/4" drive bay holes to attach rad assembly w/brackets to case.
I might have saved my notes for the brackets. If interested let me know and I'll hunt around. There are a couple pics in rig sig.

Air flow is never an issue, I run three rads (top, front and bottom) and all as intake. I do have a 2000rpm Noctua Ind rear exhaust (runs 1200rpm everyday use) a 120mm 1750rpm right side intake and nothing on the left cover for a fan, all free flow exhaust!

I also ended up moving the HDD cages but this was also very easy. I used 4pcs of 1/8' x 1" flat stock aluminum and existing taps in the cages.
1pc (per side can be seen in pics) holds cages together and the lower bracket (1 per side) attaches to cage and rests on floor of case holds up the back end (end towards center of case) of the cages allowing you to place them where ever you like (front to back) and keep them level

The air temp off my RS360 which is only 12m to 16m away from my HDDs has no effect on the HDD temps. They all run in the low to mid 30's.
Funny, I had all these very same questions when I went to add my front rad too biggrin.gif

Hope this helps!
Post back or feel free to PM me if I can can be of of any further assistance.

I can't see the front rad in your pictures? How thick is it? I was looking to run my other rads at 60mm thick aswell because the current one is too, not sure if it's too thick to fit properly in the front though.
If you got more pics/measurements, that would be very nice.
