Hi,

I just ordered my own cm trooper case with window:D And after reading almost 100 pages of this thread i figured you guys could help me:D
I realy want to watercool my components and i have the following construction in thought:

The first rad is a 280mm rad, the st30 from alphacool and i want to place that in the top of the trooper. I think it will be possible to put 2 25mm fans on it but if i want pushpull, can i get an extra set of 140mm fans on the outside of the case under the top cover?

The second rad is going to be placed in the bottom. This one is also an st30 from alphacool but the 240mm version with only 2 25mm fans on it. Im am almost 100% certain it will fit after some googling:D

The third rad will go in the front, this is the 240mm monsta rad from alphacool and i want to do a push pull on it. I am not sure it will fit or how i will attach it inside the case and if i have enough spacing with the both rad which will only take about 55mm. I know its a thight squeeze but i need all the rad space i can get:p

My watercooled hardware is the following:
intel 3930k
2x asus hd 7970s dc2t

I have them now all aircooled in my corsair graphite 600t case but my gpu temps are way to high and skyrocket if i even try to overclock a bit. My goal is to get a decent cooled setup that is quiet and has some oc possibilities wink.gif Would onlu 2 st30's be enough or do i realy need the 3the rad in the front?

I hope you guys can help me sort this out!

Hey man welcome to the trooper! smile.gif If you need any more info then what I provide here feel free to P.M. me as I probably forgot something!

Your first question- Yes the st30 280 will fit under the roof with 1 set of 25mm fans on it. right now I have a xspc ex280 rad with 2 25mm fans which I had to mod barely to get it to fit over cpu 8 pin connector but the 30mm st30 will be perfect. Now I may advise getting a 240 instead of 280 because your fan selection/performance options are a lot greater. But still good choice. And yes you can do a push pull set-up but it requires modding the top handle to fit the second fan or requires getting a thinner fan than your normal 25mm. Look back a few pages I covered this and measured.

The bottom st30 240 will fit no problem, Im upgrading my ex (35.5mm) 240 to a ut60 or ut45, depending on my front rad thickness.

As for your front 240 rad choice you can go as thick as you want as long as you have the ut30 on bottom, i'd recommend 2 ut45 for front and bottom to be safe and even it out. As far as attaching it use something like this... or make your own bracket.

http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=59_457_335_987&products_id=26190


regarding your final section about will the 2 st30's be enough here is my opinion. To compare, right now im running 2 7970's and a 8350 vishera with 3 rads. An ex280, an ex120 and an ex240. Now with that with a dual d5 pump drive bay reservoir I can max my cards no problem but im limited to my cpu overclocking because of the heat. I know my vishera dumps more heat than your 3***k so well keep that in mind. Im upgrading to mod 2 360 rads + others very soon as well as a dual loop to keep my water temps to a minimum without the cpu and cards sharing the same liquid. You will probably be fine with the 2 st30's on stock and mild overclocks on both. However, I would recommend a 240 rad for each card and the cpu. Totaling about 6 120mm rad's. However you break that up in size. Or course the more the merrier to try to boost clock even further and keep lower temps.

It all depends on your budget, and if you'd like I could P.M. you in order to not spam the thread to further explain what I think would work best for you and answer and other questions you may have regarding rad selection, how to mount rads, fan selections and more.

My question for you....

What are you going to use as far as pump and reservoir selection?

I was also looking at getting a 280mm in the roof, in push pull, its not too difficult to remove the case handle.

Plans have changed now though, going to do TTL's 360mm rad mod. And hopefully get it started tomorrow. biggrin.gif

yeah I like the handle too, will hot glue it back on for aesthetics. One thing I need to think about is, will a 30mm 360mm rad mean I cant use the top drive bay. i will have to do some measuring tomorrow.

hmmm, I kinda needed the top drive bays. - NZXT HUE and Lamptron FC8. I wanted a dual bay res/pump and still to have one drive cage for my two hdd's and still fit a 60mm rad in the bottom. I'll have to do some measurements tomorrow.

unless anyone has any smart ways to mount two hdd's?

i hot glued my ssd and hdd on the side of the plate that holds the cages. Cheap and nice, no problems with it.

update. Re-managed all cables and now I'm happy, not so many visible cables. Custom PSU cover coming soon! I'm making it atm. PSU cover will have built in fan control biggrin.gif
