It is just an aluminum angel bar, screwed it to the side of the rad (the radiator came from our old car heater) and bolted it down to the holes of the 140mm fan.

@ samwiches - thank you very much.



all my cooling parts are modified/customized. The pump is an ordinary aquarium pump that pumps 1800 liters of water per hour, the tank came from my grandmother's old oxygen tank, the rad came from our car, the only thing I bought to a computer customizing enthusiast shop is the hose and the heatsink which I converted it as waterblock, (use the heatpipes as water chambers where water can pass thru) The heatsink alone can server as radiator. biggrin.gif

I've got some Deepcools. They're awesome. As soon as my mod stuff arrives I'll finish my case and post it--a 120 and a 140 highlighted.

How is that radiator mounted? I want to put a fan there but I'm out of ideas since I'm not using any screws.
Its not screwed in. Its just kinda wedged into place. It is louder than mounting it on the back.

I'm really puzzled by the 300R's front fan mounting area.. you just cannot use rubber screws, or fit certain fans at all, inside or out.

You should post in the case mods and water cooling forums next time you have a project. All you ever see there are rich guys installing the same old pre-made kits in the same old cases. This kind of thing is actually interesting.

I agree to that, what I made here is a budget conscious LCS, got inspired with the LCS of the rich guys out there but one day it me that I can make my own LCS with out hurting my packet that much. At first my GF got mad to me, telling I'm spending too much but right after I brought her to the enthusiast shop and showed her the prices, she smiled at me and told me, Why dont you start making your own shop and start building/selling stuffs you build.

My rig had alot of modifications before I end up with this one here. I think it went to 5 different moves.

Nice. I almost did a stealth build with a Z77 Sabertooth but I had to use my Deepcool fans no matter what.

Woopz, see below.

Is this interesting? It's either this or a huge filter instead of the window, with all the airflow reversed. I like the view from the chair.
