thanks for the info. My reason for pulling air into the case is to keep the radiator as cool as possible.

Trust him... I did a bunch of testing and I would agree that pulling air out at the top of the case does provide for overall better temps and mobo temps. Unless your are running 3 or 4 gtx 480's under water the more air comming IN the case the better. There is enough venting to excavate the heat thumb.gif

***Edit***

Oh, and 3 more degrees C on the CPU is nothing compared to the beneficial temp loss on the motherboard and surrounding components (i.e. VRM's, Chipset, RAM etc. running 10+*C cooler thumb.gif)

I also did the cool air blowing in on the 240mm swiftec rad and I seemed to lose a few degrees doing it in this configuration. Quite a few people will say the opposite but dumping hot air through a rad to me defeats the purpose of dissipating and cooling down hot liquid. I've got x3 fans already exhausting hot air and x5 intake works great. Gaming never exceeds 55c on an ivy 3770k oc'd to 45x100. Gpu doesn't exceed 31c on water either. Then Again x2 240mm rads for one gpu and cpu should be able to do its job properly.

Hey guys.

I've been working on my build for a while now (Acrux Mimas), and I'm starting with the water cooling. but i need some opinions on how i should go about it.
First:


This is the most logical to me. water from res gravity feeds to pump.

Second:


This was suggested by a friend, but i dont think its a good idea to have the pump above the res.

Last:



This one, the pump is above the res, but its pushing down into it, rather than pulling from it. basically the same idea as the first, just different placement of pump.


I plan on getting a shroud that covers the entire length of the bottom to cover psu and rad from dwood. i also want to add GPUs and wc those too down the road. any suggestions?

Thanks

Never put your pump above your res bad things happen.

Cheap cameras can still take decent photos, just make sure you have enough light to prevent noise, and avoid using a flash.

The first one looks a little similar to mine except I've got a 240mm on top and a 240mm on bottom cpu/ gpu loop.
If you are going gpu waterblock make sure you fit another 240mm rad.
