Mini ITX Watercooling - Page 3

post #21 of 37
Thread Starter 
Hi, I just got an email from newegg saying I can get any case fan for 25% off, so I would like to go ahead and order my fans now. I was going to get those xspc fans that Juggalo23451 guy said were like just as good as ap-15's, but I don't see those on newegg. What are the best fans for an xspc ex rad that are silent and sturdy? Price doesn't matter, but don't go overboard, it is still just a fan. Must be sold from newegg, and I will need to use one or two of them as a case fan too. Thanks in advance.

I could tell you that the best fan for an XSPC radiator or and 120mm radiator is the Gentle Typhoon, nothing else even comes close to the static pressure of these fans! Problem is the only place that has them is on eBay marked up by $10 dollars, Link.

While I applaud the guy for pushing the envelope, I'm not gonna lie; I don't care for that build. The point of an enclosure to me is to enclose those expensive parts. Having a GPU sticking out like that just doesn't settle my neanderthal mind.


Carrotman, how do you plan to power your computer? The SG07 and 08 come with a better-than-average 600W SFX PSU, but so far as I can tell Silverstone won't sell that PSU apart from the case (there are a few folks on the net willing to part them though; example). That means you're either stuck with their 450W, or you have to upsize the case enough to fit an ATX PSU.

Dimensions. Most 240 rads are going to be between 277 and 290mm long. For point of reference, the SG-07 is 350mm long, 222mm wide, and 190mm tall. Without extending the case length and using Silverstone's 450W SFX PSU, you'll have enough room to mount the 240 just fine. As a mITX mobo is 170x170mm, and most low-fpi (meaning good with low speed fans) rads are 55mm thick, that's 170 (mobo) + 55 (rad) + 25 (fan) = at least 230mm needed for case width, or a 10mm-ish bump from the standard SG07 width. We'll call it 240mm and assume a little wiggle room. I think the smallest pump/res footprint you'll find is the Bitspower mini tank plus 35x pump combo (68mm x 90mm x 100mm). I doubt this will fit easily, if at all.

If you add another 50mm to the case (let's assume 400mm case length), you can stick an ATX-sized PSU in the front, wire the power to the back, and would have a case just barely long enough to fit a 360 rad (HW Labs SR1 360) with the rad hugging the side of the PSU. It would also create a gap between the PSU and motherboard that you can mount the mini tank + 35x pump combo.

Alternatively, you can cheat and raise the roof enough to put a get a Koolance RP-401X2 res/pump combo beneath the slim optic drive. That consolidates a lot of space and doesn't require you to lengthen the case (just raise it by 42-45mm).


Edit: Know what? I was wrong. The ST60F-SG is only 10mm shorter in length and width compared to standard ATX power supplies. You could literally add 10mm to the case length and fit a nice modular PSU (Seasonic X650 or the like) if wanted. Grab the same kind of plug used in the SG07 to extend the power and you'll be golden, especially if you sneak that Koolance res/pump combo up above the PSU.

Can anyone recommend me an easy to use CAD software so I can make up a quick image of the layout I want to make? All the cad software I have used is really complex IMO. Also, I will be using a seasonic x750 because I bought it when it was on sale. A bit overkill for mini it but whatever

perhaps I will just try to draw it by hand for now, but I will need something more precise later...

also, I had another question: If i had a 2x120mm intake rad and the same as exhaust, with no other fans at all in the case, would the heat coming from the intake rad go through the exhaust rad and render it ineffective?

Not ineffective, but less effective. Probably a tad better than when you stack rads with fans between them.

You build something similar to the Mountains Mods H2gO (Which I just ordered biggrin.gif ). It can fit 2 240mm rads with ease. All you would have to do is make it shallower for a mITX board instead of an ATX one.

so would i just be better off using only one 2x120mm rad as exhaust and just having 2 intake fans?
