As to putting a 360x80 thick in a trooper, the only place I can think of it going would be in the top, which would be extremely motherboard dependent, and would require cutting the top for proper airflow.

Yeah I've noticed the bottom has quite some space there. I can then put one AlphaCool Nexxxos UT60 in the bottom & configure it in Push only or Push/pull if it doesn't interfere with the HDD bay biggrin.gif. Thanks for that. Now then suggest me an ideal place for setting the pump & res? Or should I get a combo? Thank you so much for the help. Appreciate it. thumb.gif

P.S- I'll only be cooling the CPU & mobo VRM for now. So, a UT60 240mm would be quite good enough with NF-F12's. rolleyes.gif

It isnt the best picture, but heres my storm trooper with my new Maximus Formula VI, 4770K and 7970 installed. I have a lot of cable management to do, and waiting for my CPU water cooling parts to arrive. The picture isnt great, but I'll save the professional looking ones for when this build is done.



I ended up moving the hard drives over in the bottom bays for now. I'll probably put them back here if I decide to put my GPU under water and front mount a 240MM radiator.

My current system has a dual pump, and a bay res, non combo... Such a pain in the butt, and it consumes allot of extra & extremely valuable space. Trooper just doesn't have the proper space to mount a separate pump, when trying to fit this much stuff in it. I have added the Swiftech Maelstrom to my 900D rebuild, it should save me a bit of stress.

The only concern then was the drives which can be mounted vertically according to skupples, right?

Or just do it like this! Just a piece of plexi with the drives attached!

I've been looking into building a mid-shelf out of plexi, are any special drill bits/techniques used for cutting it?

I see your PSU is nearly taking up half the space at the bottom. Anyway, I won't be cooling the GPU's for now. So, there won't be too much hassle for me hopefully. But maybe in the future I might, so gotta be prepared biggrin.gif. But I guess I might have to go for a pump/res combo given that there's not enough space as you showed me in the pic. Btw, You could try velcrostrap that HDD at the back and sleeve the cables to match the color scheme. And what rad is that at that top?

I ended up moving the hard drives over in the bottom bays for now. I'll probably put them back here if I decide to put my GPU under water and front mount a 240MM radiator.

That's the same Mobo I'm intending to get & watercool it. Do keep posting updates about your progress. thumb.gif

Nope, just a regular sawblade and a metaldrill used to make it. Not even attached it to the stryker, it fits snug in there!

I am happy with the look so far. I am making custom hard drive cables currently and mounting them in my lower bays. I am waiting for my WC gear to show up, probably early next week. I havent decided on acrylic or regular tube, itll depend on how good I am at bending.

looks great bro. I have the same cpu and mobo on my trooper except I got SLI 780 for my graphics. Are you planning to water cool everything?
