now all that's left is to choose my case, the lian li or the frectal design ..
because i realy love the lights and the window, and i wont cut a window in the frectal design...and if taking it so i dont need that expensive uv light tank/pump.. damn its hard to choose.. what do u think?

also that corsair obsidian 800 looks good

wait a second now ist that tank/pump goes into the 5.25 bay?

if youre going to have watercooling you might as well have a window to show it off lol

modding a case for a window is not a difficult task at all so thats always an option.

As for the pump/res its really a personal choice. I would say stick with that pump either way and pick out the res style you want, the cost in the end will basically be the same.

The 800D is nice lol easy to work with too. I found it to be an expensive case what for what i got though.

so.. the frectal design look realy good and its made out of pretty thick aluminum it will be very hard to cut
and if i'll make a mistake i'll ruin a 200$ case
i would have taken it if it had a window..

im thinking of taking this case

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/14...c295s740#blank


along with that uv tank/pump and a 9X140 radiator
with the king win 500W silent psu

but im a little afraid from 2 things

1) that the radiator and 1 pump wont be enough without fans (cause i wanna over clock also..)

and i see that u got 9X140 and a 9X120!!
with fans man.. so im thinking maybe i'll buy another pump/tank or another radiator..

2) u think that kingwin will hold a system like that

CPU - 3700K when its out (over clocked
mobo - some Z68
single 570/580 nvidia
1 or 2 pump/tank with uv light
optical drive
ssd x 1
hdd x 2
4X4gb memory 2000mhz

2-3 fans
alot of lighning (like 6-7 cathods led strip and maybe a plasma ball

*do u think i can put that rad in that case?

I have a 3x120 and 4x120 and thats only because i will eventually be adding another GPU.

That 500W PSU will not be enough, look at something like this instead. You never know if youre gonna add another GPU

With 2-3 blocks in a loop, you only need one pump, most setups only need one. Two would be more for redundancy.

As for that case, its over $550. For that cost id rather go for something like this and add a window.

lol man i need this computer mainly for audio production, the only games i play are starcraft 2 and heroes (3, 5 & 6) the rest of the games i play on ps & xbox, so ithink a single 570/580 is already an over kill

i dont and wont need another gpu. in that case, it will hold? cause if it doesnt i'll buy a weaker gpu..

and that case looks ******* good man but i don't have the skills to cut a window that will look as pro as the lian li i chose, and i want that computer to look tight..

I would get a 650w then or a 560ti as a gpu

The beauty about that case is that you can order it with a window

the second case the OP linked to is a broken link... its leads to a blank page fro me ... also, the rad wont hold pasively cooled... the fin count is too high for passive cooling... you should check out the new aqua computers rads if you want passive cooling (i will post a link in a minute) as that is partially what they are designed for... you could also get some extremely low RPM fans that your pump will be louder than (others would be better on this topic then me)... with the aqua rads, you could connect them anyway you want... 140.9 worth should be plenty if you go passive (could still add more if you wanted though)... if you get silent fans, then i would get 120.9 worth in a square as there are more fan options in the 120mm range than in the 140mm range

EDIT: found it ... check out this thread, it explains the rads in detail

you mean this rad?

http://www.aqua-computer.de/images/p...p_1800_500.jpg

i think i'll go for that case that has 2 480 rads mounted 9 if i understand right

those are the specs
Size: 15"W x 25.06"H x 26.06"D (381mm x 637mm x 662mm)
PCI Slots: 10
Form Factor: mATX - HPTX (13.60" x 15.00”) (346mm x 381mm)
Max Radiator Size: 120.4
Radiator Clearance Above the MB Tray: 173mm
Radiator Clearance Below the MB Tray: 90mm
Cooling Tower Clearance: 180mm
Flex-Bays (5.25” Bays): 13
HDD Capacity: 16 (32 using Flex-Bays)
Weight: 31 lbs.


i dont understand where is it placed and what radaitors shuold i get, and now im confused coz u told me that he regular radiators wont work for me
can u give me a link or somthing for passive rads that will fit in that case?
here's a pic

thats a great case... and normal rads dont work well for passive... also, that isnt the rad i was talking about, i was talking about this one http://www.frozencpu.com/products/14...uit_33026.html

it is designed for either passive or very low rpm fans... these would also fit in the TH10... honestly, fully passive cooling is a tough job to achieve (and personally scares me)... i would also look into some quite fans:

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/83...l=g36c437s1123
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/96...l=g36c437s1123

the first fan runs at 6dB and pushed 17.5CFM, and the second fan runs at 9dB and pushed 35.5CFM... both of these would be about a loud as your pump, and probably slightly quieter... dont forget that a normal whisper is 15dB, so these fans are extremely quiet... it wouldn't hurt to at least entertain the idea... and if you decide not to, those rads should get the job dont just fine (just fully passive has always made me a bit nervous)

i think i'll buy some of that 120 fans just in case
i'll buy additional n/c foam to quite things up..

and do i need one or 2 of those radiators?

they are supposed to cool a 3700K and 560/570
maybe some oc to the cpu

and this case even support 2 480 rads? i didnt quite understand...

Edit: does that case comes with fans? its not mentioned

and what is hex mesh option at the pci back plate?
