Hangon measuring


At best probably 2 usable bays if 360 in front.. i used 400mm length to measue up from bottom.. the 420mm on top kinda wipes out the first and second bay for a full lenght drive.. I use a fan controller there instead..

ok so I just finished installing these phobya quick disconnects and here are the pictures,what I did was place one on the input on video card and the one on the output of video card back to res this way I can remove cards anytime I want without draining loop. I then placed one on the output of my front 360 rad and placed the other one on the input of my top 360 rad this way I can unplug them and remove cpu block and replace it without draining loop.I will get another set down the road and place it on the input of my front 360 that way ill be able to remove the rad if necessary.

Be careful as these qdc are gonna put a lot of restriction in your loop. They're basically pneumatic air cupplings. If you want to have some qdc for your loop, Koolance sells some nice ones that have better flow rates but are a bit more expensive. I used the Phobya qdc as a drain line to the reservoir but it was never part of the main loop.

This is the product description below from Phobya,please read the part that says especially for water cooling applications.




Quick release couplings are usually derived from the pneumatics market. Due to this origin the seal of the couplings is often ensured by high air pressures. if such couplings which were designed for high air pressures are used in the watercooling sector with its low pressure it has happened in the past that leakages were the consequence. Phobya has addressed this issue and has designed a quick release coupling especially for watercooling applications. Therefore Phobya can now guarantee a perfect seal when the couplings are used in a watercooling system. As they were specially designed these couplings can not be used with air pressure but only with low-pressure water applications.
The Phobya quick coupling kit is self-sealing, meaning that the coupling can be separated without leakage even when the loop is filled. Both sides seal safely when separated, at most 1 to 2 drops can spill out (therefore not 100% leakage-free). These quick release couplings are ideal for external radiators as they allow quick and safe separation for transport. if you wish to make an external radiator easily separable you require two of these kits (1 to the radiator, 1 from the radiator).

Just placed an order for one of these cases. Hanoverfist, your posts have been very helpful. thumb.gif

Just one more question. Is it possible to slide the HDD cage back a bit and still fit a rad in the drive bays in front of it? Preferably a 60mm thick rad with fans in push pull.

Also, has anyone put a 140mm rad with 15mm fan spacing on top like the alphacool UT60 420?

Edit: It seems like the fan spacing on the top is 15mm, at least on the original revision. thumb.gif

Finished rebuilding my sig rig into the Elysium a few weeks ago. I really like the case, little things like the caster wheels etc. Very easy to build in, except for removing the front panel. It would be nice to have the option of acrylic windows instead of the mesh on the side. Maybe a mod in the future....

Right now I'm thinking about ditching the red sickleflow fans (too dim) and going all green. Any opinions on that?

Pics!
