Internal Watercooling in Silverstone TJ08-E

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Alright, I am planning out my next rig. I am going to be running a IVY processor, and I am waiting for Nvidia 6XX series to launch. This is going to be my 5th PC build, and my first attempt at water cooling. *crosses fingers*

I already have the Silverstone TJ08-E case, a Rosewill 1300W Lightning PSU, DVD drive, and some miscellaneous components.

Now, I bought a H80 to WC the processor...because I dont overclock my processor and I dont want to run a loop through 2 videocards and a processor.

I am going to be running a Nvidia 6xx SIL setup and I want to put the GPUs underwater. The case has a 180mm intake fan, I found This radiator for cooling the fluid. And i would mount another 180mm fan behind it for a push/pull configuration. There is room in the front of the case for this push/pull system. Would that be sufficient for a dual 6xx GPU configuration? or maybe a 590 equivalent? (I know it is speculation)

I have already Moved the harddrive cage to give the room needed in the front of the case. I have Approximately (5x6x2 LWH)inches for a decent pump on the floor of my case and there is space for a (4.25x1.25x3.25 LWH)inch reservoir behind the PSU mount (the reservoir needs to be above the pump according to the FAQ.).

In the top 5.25 I could mount a reservoir there, but due to my choice in PSU I am limited to a total of 6inches deep. in the bay, the other is occupied my the DVDrom drive.

That is about as far as I have gotten in terms of research. I have not found small enough reservoirs to fit in that space and I have no clue about what pumps/fittings/tubes would be best for that configuration.

I can take pictures and post them so you can have a better idea, just let me know what you want.

Some knowledge and advice would be greatly recommended.

Thank you all!

Routing your hoses might be a pain but it sounds like you've got the theory pretty much figured out for layout. XSPC's Single Bay Res should fit within your space restrictions. How many hard drives, what type/size will you be using? You could consider chopping or removing the current HDD rack to free up even more room. Food for thought. And pictures always help. thumb.gif

I'm subbing this thead for sure! I've got a dormant TJ-08 that's getting stuffed to the gills when I graduate. biggrin.gif

That looks like it will fit well enough. I am placing the reservoir, radiator, and pull fan on order tonight. I will post some pictures to give you all a better idea of my modded layout tonight if I can, but I have a few night classes so I might not have enough time.

I am going to be mounting 3x3.5in hdds; 2x1.5tb SataIII raid 0, 1x3tb sataII data/streaming and a SSD for caching. all of which are going to be mounted in the hdd cage, and I am using the bottom most slot to route my power cables and cooling channels through. This is going to be my new gaming/editing/everything computer. So It is going to be a performance machine (just in case SLI video didnt already imply that) So, 2.5in drives are out of the question, other than SSDs of course.

The hard drive rack I have already modded so it can face the opposite direction I don't think I can trim any more space on the rack because of the number of drives I want to install. the rack holds 4 drives and one other on the bottom, top 3 are for hdds then SSD then the bottom for routing cables. All those drive will fit with 1cm of clearance between the drives and the front fan/radiator and the back will be right against the rear fan/radiator. So, I will have to order 90deg data cables and THIS Silverstone accessory to hook all my drives up. All of my clearances are in centimetres, stuffed to the gills indeed -__-

Have you done water cooling before? Because, I know that I am going to run tubes from the reservoir through the radiator, to the pump, through the videocards, and back to the reservoir. What I need help with, is what fittings will I need to link all this together.

Is a 180mm radiator good enough for 2 dual gpu cards?

Since you seem to love the case as much as I do: Even with the 2x180mm fans and a 35mm radiator, you can STILL FIT 11in long videocards!!

I think a 180mm radiator should be plenty big for 2 cards. Hell I think this case would be fine rocking an sli on just air, so water cooling is just a bonus. I'm looking at doing something similar early next year when the gtx580's drop in price, but I'm waiting till then.

I would do a push pull radiator at the front with the pump behind it and the reservoir in the top 2 bays. I would run tubes to processor to sli cards and back through the system. I don't see why you want to keep the h80 in there.... Just taking up space imo and makes it look cluttered.

I have my blueray drive which will eat up a slot. but I ordered a single bay reservoir and the 180mm radiator. I need to mount my hard drives in order to figure out the size pump I am going to get, I also don't know what kind I need. Waiting for someone to answer that question still.

The way i repositioned the Hard drive cage, all you see of the H80 is the fans and radiator, everything else is tucked away behind the hard drive cage. I am pretty much keeping it because I already have it and this computer would not run drastically cooler with it installed. (it sits at 30c tops at about 65c during the summer months)

I wasn't going to WC the video cards but I haven't done water cooling and I always wanted to, so i figured why the hell not, I build a all new rig every 5 years might as well go all out on this one.

Do you what you want, but I won't understand why you want to keep the h80 either way.

Alright, I think I have everything figured out. Here is my cart as of now.


672

Note:
the 38mm long screwes are for mounting the 180mm raditor to my silverstone fans (it shipped with 30mm). I already have the bay reservoir and 180mm rad.

I am open to opinions on everything else. Let me know!

That looks awesome biggrin.gif

I just built a PC for a friend using the same case. When I put it together I was thinking, "how the hell would you water cool something in this case?!"

Well sir you just showed my how and I am impressed! thumb.gif
