post #1101 of 12394
I started another thread in the mod section about doin an MRAP Maxxpro inspired build and this is the case I am using. My only concern is I'm not sure if this case is paintable due to the rubber-like coating on it. Has anyone tried painting it? My inspiration:

Idea 2
Mount the Rad on the back but on the outside of the case and then put a ballin Fan on the back of it and then turn your regular Push CM Fan into a PULL and you will have all the room in the world.[/quote]

This is the idea i believe im going with. Because i have been looking at those mobos

that's a pretty sweet ride but I'd hate to foot the gas bill for it period.

You may be able to use a chemical such as tulol to remove the rubber if its too much of a problem. I've used that to clean all kinds of things but don't have my case to test my theory on, not that would want to if I did have it now... wink.gif

I look forward to seeing what you come up with! Best of luck thumb.gif

A Little History Of Water Cooling innovation over the Decades.

First there was the 80 mm Fans. Great if you loved the sound of a Bee Hive while you played DOOM III.
500

We also Gave TURBO CHARGING a run but the it build so much heat that you had to have a 3 ton AC unit to keep you cool in the winter.
500

At that point some Hot Rodder Computer Dude got the Idea of Using a radiator from a car to cool the CPU and Video Cards and Water Cooling was Born.
450

A Few Computer Guys came up with the Idea of submerging their computers in Fish Tanks and Vegetable oil but the heat was absorbed into the vegetable oil and started to deep fry the systems after a few days of operation.
330

By this time Companies started getting onto the Submarine Cooling of Computers and came up with some pretty healthy systems.
314

But Most Times Computer Builder's perfered to do things themselves.
400

Even Some of the Computer Builders got into the Water cooling Business. Zalman being the Best at it Until......
310

Corsair Pefected the all in one Easy Water Cooling System.
329

But then Artist Got into the Water Cooling and the Work Became Breathtaking ...

On top & bottom there will be a double-radiator (slim-version on top). I was thinking aabout the back-panel.

After doing some more measures and checking the motherboard layout again I come to the resolution, that a 140mm-rad like Phobya (Phobya G-Changer 140 197x145x60 mm ) is not possible to mount inside combined with a 8-DIMM mo.bo.

The rad would likely touch the first DIMM.

I didn't even think of an outside-solution - thanks for the idea!
But concerning a nice-looking solution (everything inside), i will take a slim 120 radiator. Just ordered EK Water Blocks EK-CoolSt. RAD XT (120 154x119 x47 mm).

Thanks for your input!

I would concentrate on these design element. and yes. The top can accept paint. First paint it with plastic Primer and wait for a week before painting it with the primary Camo Tan Color that will match the vehicle. IF you use a glass make it green looking or if want more air then use a mesh that best matches the Air intake on this side of the Vehicle.

Wow, that was exactly the portion of the MRAP I was thinking. I'm also replacing all the fans with Noctua 120's because the color scheme is dead on. This will take me a couple weeks, but I'll post updates.

Also, I'm having trouble with my 2.5" bay on top of the case. I have my SATA cable hooked up and power to the board but nothing happens when I slide a drive in. What am I missing?

Yea that shape is almost dead on the Trooper. it has great details that will help you with your build.

As far as the 3.5 inch drive. For one you have to format for AHCI Format and also make sure you are not plugging into a Sata connection that is not Drivered. I did that. I hooked it up and it would not work but I had for 6 other hard drives, Well my Motherboard has a second driver for the last two Sata connections. Make sure your Sata connection is plugged into the control module connector too.

No problem. The bottom and the side if you mod could be a good locale too.

What MoBo do you have?
Are you cooling 2 GTX cards and your processor with just the 2 240' radiators ??
Does this work???

and this is how long the water takes to get back to room temp its about 8 min
