Looking to Watercool a Rackmounted Server build. Give me some imput.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am going to be switching my machine which is currently air cooled in the lian li case below into a server case (link below). I would like to water cool it. My idea is that I will get two server cases. I will run the res, pump, ect in the other case below this one. I was considering mounting quick disconnects to the back of the case and connecting the hoses as such?

Any input?

You might be able to put a rad in that case where the three fans are. You could put a 240 and then put the res and pump by the other fan.

You can do it, but since the fan spacing in non-standard you will have to modify the fan bar. Look at the ATX holes from the top down shot. You should have a good 2-3 inches between the fan bar and your X58 motherboard. That also leaves a lot of free space near the PSU for a pump/res combo.

If for some reason you do run out of space, there's always the koolance PCI QD bracket. I personally thing you could do it all in this one chassis.

Make sure to create a good seal under and around the fan bar so that your air doesn't re-circulate. Also if you are getting poor flow remove the front dust filter.
