Getting ready to order this. I've made arrangements for my buddy to CNC the back panel for recessed bolt holes and grill slots for a 240mm radiator. I m planning to run two 120mm radiators in the typical locations and possibly the little mini radiator in bottom. The objective is to make a very powerful and portable watercooled rig. This will replace my wife's HAF-XB. Currently have a 4770k and Asrock Z87-Eitx.

Hey guys,

I have a question about the anodized panels. Has anyone else experienced their panels turning a golden colour due to being in the sun?

Best regards,

Well, my build is slowly getting there. smile.gif All I gotta do now is build a floor panel next to the psu and put some pass-through fittings in em...ooh, can't wait. rolleyessmileyanim.gif, lol. My sleeved cables should be arriving sometime next week as well.


Drilling into the case was not fun...I hate powertools, lmao.


Really wanna get into acrylic tubing, but the idea of having to stock up on new fittings and then having to sell mine just gives me a headache.

With he FT03, would it be possible to occupy the three HDD spaces, and then still fit in two SSDs?

Evening all,

Just wanted to share a quick shot of my build now that the loop is complete. Leak tested the build last night for 6 hours and all is well! *Sighs* still waiting on my wiring shopping list to arrive (USPS redirected to the wrong address in a different state), but should have custom wiring done later this week! I'll def. post more build pics this week to share with the community.

That's great thumb.gif

Only thing you might worry about is the inlet port from the reservoir is quite high up. If the loop loses liquid from evaporation, the inlet will start sucking air.

Is there any way to turn the res to have the inlet lower? I'm worried you will end up having to top it up every week or so.

Thanks! I can't wait to do the power cabling and shorten everything down the length. It'll be great.

I completely agree, and when I woke up this morning felt the same regarding the res. I'm trying to think of the easiest way... may have to let some liquid out from the quick connect so I can take one of the fittings off from the res. - only way.

Other possibility is to use a tube inside the res and bend it down to draw water from the bottom. There's a guide for bending acrylic tube in the w/c section. This one has a G1/4 fitting and o-ring. http://www.ekwb.com/shop/reservoirs-and-acc/reservoir-acc/ek-res-x3-series/ek-res-x3-internal-tube-12-16-140mm.html . It's a bit long but can saw to length easily with a hacksaw (one designed for metal).

Hey Wisk,

Thanks for the advice and insight! smile.gif Appreciate it.

Literally brewed a fresh cup of coffee this morning and spent 2 hours bleeding the line slightly (clearing res), then adjusting and sorta reversing the compression fittings. I had to bring out the Dremel and slice a larger area up top for the fittings to be placed lower, but smoothed them out and coated with some black touch up marker. Looks good now! smile.gif Res. is feeding into the CPU block/pump at the lowest point now. Actually considerably easier filling the res this route.
