In saying it fits? Also is there room for push pull with the RIVE mobo in the trooper?

Separated at birth, bud wink.gif

I don't think I'll be going SLI though.. not unless I decided to start running a 3 monitor setup or something. That's just overkill ;-) BUT... someday.... biggrin.gif

I started a thread in the watercooling forums for some of the more generic water cooling advice, but I suppose it's ok to repost the info - as this is storm trooper specific advice biggrin.gif

The parts I have initially thought...

I THINK I should be able to fit a 3x120 rad on the top... if not I may go in the front... (hence the advice from this forum biggrin.gif). Also, I think I should be able to fit this res in there - if not I can go a step lower, but I am getting the clear side panel and I love the idea of seeing a res like this showing in the window biggrin.gif

But for space, it looks like there are actually quite a few options in this case...

RAD: MCRx20-XP 3x120mm

RES: Alphacool Cape Corp Coolplex Pro 25 LT - 250mm (if that won't fit... MCRES Micro Rev2 Reservoir)

PUMP: MCP655

CPU BLOCK: XSPC RayStorm (With Red LED wink.gif)

TUBING: PrimoChill PrimoFlex PRO LRT Tubing 3/8" ID 5/8" OD with 1/8"

Perhaps someone more experienced can tell me if anything is wrong with these parts in the case ^_^

Good choices. But if your worried about room for the res, you can always macgyver 2 x 240mm rads in the front of the case by removing two hdd cages and creating some sort of bracket to hold the rads side by side. A couple of people have done that for their loops in this thread and looking around will get you some pretty good info. Are you just cooling the cpu or do you plan on throwing the 680 into the loop?

Anyway, I finally got the the rads with fans in. And omg that was a f**cking pain!

putting those screws in of the rad mounts was a bloody pain.
I also had to cut-off a small section of the bottom 5.25" bay.

Not sure how to run the fan cables as I want to use the Zalman fan controller.
Tomorrow I'll do the tubing, if I'll find the time that is. And probably Sunday will be the leak test.
Moar updates soon!

Yeah I should.. it's hard to get a grasp on a 200+ page thread lol. I see that - but where on earth do these people put their HDDs then?? They always leave that little detail out lol. But I THINK I should be ok on space.. I need to measure for the res - but I need to measure out space for the rad on the top to see if that's even an option with 3x.

Some things I always wonder about people posting pics lol : How did you get your HDD cables to place nice? Where do you put 3 HDDs when you take out the bays? They show the results but I never find the HDDs >_>

A very expensive SSD in the xdock maybe >.<<br />
Ive seen sites sell mounting kits for hhd/ssd so people can threw them wherever the hell they want but it's not incredibly practical.
