Just got my new case in and put together in time for the foldathon.....a little late.

I just bought this Lian Li case. I plan to put my folding rig in it. I am just tired of looking the rig not in a case. I have a simple WC setup in it for the CPU and NB. The WC setup has a 120 rad and res/pump combo (which saves space). I had the WC components laying around so thats why I did it. How troublesome do you think this will to put in? IF it wont fit, I can go back to air but my gut says I can make it fit. OH, and I am using 3/8 tubing so it bends quite nicely.

my current folding rig setup.

might be useful to look at their setup...

If you are ok with the rad being outside the case, I say very likely. If you want the rad in the case, I say likely with a little modding of the case. I do not see a 120mm hole to vent the rad on that case. If there is one already, it is just a matter of clearance.

+1 Thanks, sadly my res/pump combo wont fit in the 5.25 trays. Luckily I only have 120 rad so I think it will all work out. We will find out next week.

No 120 vent but two 120 intake. Since the rad never puts out a whole lot of heat at full load I doubt it will matter. The PSU will be venting, that plus positive pressure should do quite nicely...i think.

After much fuss and work, I finally got it all in there. My CPU and NB are under water. I am actually quite pleased with it. Its running an E8400 and a GTS450. Not a bad folding rig if I say so myself. I may actually use it as a LAN rig as well. Sure beats lugging my 75lb monster around. Anyway, as you can see its REALLY tight and the wiring leaves something to be desired but they are out of the way and the air flows quite nicely. My dad gets free Dynomat so I had him send me a box of it while I was waiting on the case and what do ya know they got here at the same time. So its nice and quiet and looks great. here are the pics.

Sorry to TP but for those who want to do this please note that the rad is a PAIN to get in.
