post #8791 of 12497
what do you guys think of this layout?

I spend a LOT of time thinking out my builds , this one over two months and wont be getting it for another week or two but heres my plan. I need criticism and feedback. To let you know prior to this,

A: I know a 360 rad is overkill for cpu only , plan on getting a gpu block when the 9000 series is released.
B: Will be using SP-120's on the rad
C: It was done in paint by a paint newb so take that into consideration
D: This will be w/ a xspc 360 kit, i jumped up for the d5 pump
E: I'm also an amd fanboy



the xspc barbs will be replaced with bitspower 1/2 x 3/4 fittings
and primochil white tubing 1/2x3/4
of course just using distilled water and a kill coil

Setup looks fine except of your front. You only have about 450mm in height there so fitting a 360 rad with the HDD and a bayres will be difficult, ifnot impossible.
Maybe find another spot for your HDD and with a single bay res, then it will be fine.

Few problems....

Keep in mind that My set-up is an 8350 with 2 7970's underwater aswell. AMD fan boy too...

You will not fit a 360 rad in front with a dual bay res let alone a dvd drive or a hdd adapter as well.. It just isn't going to happen..You will probably be able to get the hdd up there if you remove the bottom cm storm plate cover and cut that 2 screw bar portion out of the front bezel.l Here is a pic of an alphacool ut60 360mm I have to show. Yes, your xspc rad wont be 60mm but its the height were looking at...

Intel(R) IPP JPEG encoder 7.0.1041 - Jul 19 2011;
Intel(R) IPP JPEG encoder 7.0.1041 - Jul 19 2011;
Intel(R) IPP JPEG encoder 7.0.1041 - Jul 19 2011;
Intel(R) IPP JPEG encoder 7.0.1041 - Jul 19 2011;
If I were you I would do a similar loop to mine for your situation... Here is the specs. I will post pics in a few days regarding exactly what mine looks like.

alphacool ut60 240mm in bottom, with pull sp120's. (ends up perfectly level with bottom non removable portion of drive mounts)
xspc ex 240mm cross-flow in top w/ push sp120's. ( just enough space to clear my asus crosshair V formula -z vrm)
dual bay pump in middle, so you can easily use fill port (like first picture)

That would be fine for now. Later you could add a 120mm rad on back to give the gpu block and overall loop a little more cooling power.
Don't get the ex 280. It barely fits, with modding fan by 8 pin and it kinda sucks fyi. Its what I have up top right now until my ut60 240mm arrives for the bottom then my cross-flow 240's going in top just like suggested.

my next addition that includes these suggestions will be here by the end of the week, its already shipped from performance-pcs. I will give detailed pics and layout by the weekend so you can get a good idea. Now I'm a little short on rads for my loop even with my 120mm on back. but my future total includes ut60 240mm bottom, ut 45 360mm front with d5 series pump and res inside chassis behind the 360mm then ut30 360mm up top and may or may not keep the 120mm on back at that point. But im upgrading to what I suggested now to buy it in increments.

But just with the ex 280 and ex 240 and basically a ex 120 on back I have maxed the 7970's and got a 4.5 ghz overclock on the vish, at 1.38 volts. That the limit till what comes this week and in future

Oh ok i just had read there was room for a 360 if bother HDD cages are removed, aparently they were wrong so i will most likely put a 240 black ice gt stealth at the top w/ 2 sp120s in push and either a 120 in the back or another 240 in the bottom when i add a gpu

by stealth will work nicely, and for future you I use and suggest the ut60 for a few reasons...

1. perfect thickness at 60mm with a sp120 fan in pull to still be able to put he'd caddy over it.

2. has multi port function that is perfect for drain port on bottom.

3. better performance than ex240 x flow because you can run fans slower

rx 240 is a little cheaper but I like the plug opportunities for drain and accesories


Just to clarify. you can fit a 360 rad in front with custom mounting but not with your dual bay res or and bay res to be honest. hope my insights helped I'll be sure to post pictures when my rad and drain come in this week

PLEASE don't buy Corsair fans. Go for ap-14 high speed gentle typhoons. Quieter, faster, more SP, oh and they cost less... I have ONE Corsair SP fan in my case, and I swear it's as loud as 12 typhoons.

Also, I would top mount the 360, and get a 240x80thick for the bottom of the case. Why? Because that's what I did, and it works AMAZINGLY well.

If you vertically mount that 360 you pretty much destroy all other possibilities of having any more rads(bigger then 120.1) on the inside of the case.

I just don't like a monster rad on bottom looks so out of place and its works just as well the other way. yes the typhoons may be better but defiantly don't cost less and you can still get a 360 up top with the 360 front as well as 240 bottom or a 280 top not just 120 back is left...

hmmm.... Prices must of come down since I bought my fans. Typhoons are still 17.50 a piece, corsairs are now 25 for two.

to each his own as to what looks out of place.

I agree! thats just my opinion smile.gif

Whatever Works!

.....Ya they have dropped tho, little better. Only reason I would choose the corsair's over the typhoons is because they are easy to find locally at tiger direct, micro center, fry's, ect

Small update on stuff i changed recently:
-Changed my raystorm block for an EK block, performance is worse than before for some reason, but it look better
-added a ram block on my trident-x 2400
-changed tubing size for something bigger (1/2-3/4)
-changed my case fan for the new cougars Led fan



If ur wondering what are those 2 black things on top of the right fan, they are 2 plates that i use to secure my res/pump combo, thought i will need to find another wat to do it cause they are giving me a bunch of bad vibration noise.
