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

Well if they are SSDs, a lot of guys on here have mounted them to areas like behind the motherboard wall using sticky velcro strips.

Personally I wouldn't recommend using hot glue on SSDs or HDDs. If I was in that situation and wanted something a bit more secure than sticky velcro strips, I would map out and drill holes to screw them down. If I didn't have a drill, I might consider using velcro straps or zip ties.

Don't get me wrong, hot glue works, but it's not for everyone.

You should get some 3d carbon fiber or even white duct tape to put on your orange crossfire bridge. It makes a big difference getting rid of that orange in your case.. smile.gif

the glue holds a heavy 2 tb, so works for me, and their not so nice to look at, so i just hide them. tongue.gif

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!

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?

push pull in top depends on mobo i can do it now using the alternate mount points for my 240 with no modding.( there are no alternate mounting for 280 ) i would recommenced going with a 120mm rad up top as there are very very very few benefits to 140s
bottom should be fine but you will lose your drawer.
front should be fine but it depends. dont forget the mosta is 80mm thick you need push pull with good fans. it will depend on placement of everything else. add it last and do some measuring.
