Unplugged everything, took out the rads, plumber taped all the fittings, and I'm back in action!

One of our Troopers actually was talking to me about water cooling yesterday. He said..

Never put together fittings dry. and Never leave a pump Dry for too long. The impellers can warp when dry and make a noise when reattached. Actuall Skitzab says...store them in wet conditions and put them together wet.

The man is an expert on these things unlike me. He is a reputable modder and his ideas about Teflon tape is you really don't need it if you put it together wet..

Not to mention the fact that teflon tape is intended for tapered fittings not g 1/4 with a tapered fitting it is the tightness in addition to the teflon tape that makes the seal with out g 1/4 fittings its the O ring that makes to seal so you want them tight but not to tight because if you tighten them to much you can flatten the O ring out and then you have a crappy seal so I only ever hand tighten my fittings.

Hey guys, im thinking of purchasing the stryker for my build in a few months.

Does anyone already have it water cooled (either h100 or custom) that can show me some pictures/ also how do you guys like it so far?

Also

is there a way i could browse through only the pictures in a thread? or could you guys upload/show me pictures of people who have already water cooled the stryker? (i dont want to look like an a$$ but it would be much easier to ask then to go through almost 400 pages of this forum for a few pictures) thanks!

Can someone tell me the dimension between the floor of the case(interior) and the top of the case (interior) in the 5-1/4 drive bay area?

Basically would a quad 120 fit up front?

The H100 will fit easily up top. As for custom, there are several different pictures in this thread, but I believe there is an index on the first few pages of members who have uploaded pics, as well as a link to their rig. As for custom cooling, you can add a thin 240MM rad in the top (which is why the H100 is good to go), a thick 240MM rad in the bottom, and with a little modding, a 360MM rad in the front. The last would obviously eliminate your ability to use the drive bays, but not all will need them. With a 240 in the top and a 240 in the bottom, you should be good to go on a CPU GPU setup, but that depends on the parts and your temp preferences.

You may not see many strykers on here, but the trooper is the same, minus a few changes (stryker is white, has window panel included, and I think eliminates an eSata port?)

Here's a pic of my WC'd Stryker. Theres plenty of space for everything inside, as you can/can't see from my photo a 240 rad can fit uptop with fans attached and still isn't sticking out into the windowed area. You get a very clean look if you use a bay res but theres plenty of space for other types as well. The case can infact take 2 240 rads and a 120 rad at the same time without any modding. (240 up top, another 240 along the bottom if you remove the modular 2.5" hdd cage and a 120 on the back.)
