Is there any way to mount a 560 or 480 rad on the top?

Most of it is the two CCFL's, the LED strip and some fans.
I'm going to upgrade the PSU eventually, which will also involve moving it from top to bottom as this PSU's cables were too short for the bottom position.
This is my first chassis with any kind of power management and it'll take a couple of iterations to get right.
Have purchased an Asus Crosshair V Formula and when that goes in I'm going to redesign the cabling routes.
I can hardly get the other panel on as it is. :S Too many unused connections... Two 6+2 plugs are bigger than you might think. >.<

Pic attached: Old build w/ 2x 4870 before one died.
When you do, I can't stress enough Corsair's AX series. My 850 is a dream. Only thing I'd like is some longer cables, but that's nothing some nice sleeved extensions won't fix.

Already got my heart set on an Enermax Revolution85+ 1,250W.

I've been in the "OC business" for awhile and an old server came with an Enermax 450W PSU. Its still running even though it was built in '02 or something. 24/7 in my Home Server with 790GX, 1GB 8500GT, Ph9950BE and 6 HD's.

I'd use the onboard GPU (Sideport memory WOO XD) but there aren't any drivers for Win2k3, which is what WHS v1 is built on. =/

Nope.

120 in the rear; 360 in the top; 360 in the bottom; 480 in the front.

Either the top or bottom will also need to accommodate for a PSU aswell, so with a bottom-mount the best you can hope for is a 240 in the bottom, next to the PSU.

There's a British guy from OC3D that does a very good and in depth review of this chassis on YouTube... It must be said that that video is the reason I have this case. XD

There is really just few non-custom cases that can fit 560mm radiator out there. It would be TJ11 (even two), FT02, RV02, and Lian li X2000 (but heavy modding required), and maybe largest case from danger den. I dont think there are any other cases that are manufactured by mainstream computer case companies can fit these rads, mainly because limit of case dimensions, that radiator is just too long.

Enermax FTW! Indeed they make the BEST power supplies

Ok. Let me put it this way because im new to watercooling,

Lets say, mobo + 2x cpu's + 2X GTX 580
Would a 420 + 240 do the job? what do you think?
Any other case whould get me way off budget..
post #378 of 1907
Easily, 480mm is almost good enough, if you add 240 it can easily cool high end cpu + this sli. This is usually what ppl put in 800d setups, or tj07, more than enough cooling power.
post #379 of 1907
ADD ME
here is mine so far. its up and running. water cooling the cpu is next. the plan is a full watercooling system byt im waiting for BF3 to come out so i can upgrade my GPU's.

also with temp monitors is there a way to extend the temp probes or can you get longer ones?
