Watercooling in Thermaltake Armor A30?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello!


Ok. I'm new to Watercooling, so came for some advice.

How do you think I'd get on fitting a Corsair Hydro (H100 or H80) in my Thermaltake Armor A30?!


OR

I'm happy to build a custom loop, but Which Radiator and where to fit it?! The Armor A30 isn't water cooling friendly...


Thanks very much!!!

Or do I just give up and find an air cooler shorter than 9cm.. Ugh..

I would go custom loop with that case. Get a Koolance RP401x2, a single pump (or 2 pumps and a controller to turn them both down), and mount the rad externally. You could pop out one of those 60mm fans from the back, cut out the mesh, and run the tubing through that, and give the rad some feet and set it on top.

Single Pump all the way, I'm not going crazy and it'll save space and money. What about fitting the 240mm Rad on top? There's a 230mm fan up there, add it there and surely that'll work?

That's if it doesn't get in the way of the PSU..
