Its all good having these intentions, but you have to stop and ask yourself am i going about this the wrong way? I know the case you a working with I have had one briefly. The steel is very thin and overall the case isn't built that special. Your idea rocks, but your case is sucking major. If you stuff up one of the panels I still have my old one here de riveted in pieces .

That's what I thought, it was just an idea. Do you think this would fit in the bottom bay? The spacing inbetween fans seems to be like 30mm, so cutting into it and putting in a rad grill seems a bit silly to me when I could just put 2x120's.

That's not the bump, that's the challange! tongue.gif

That's cool, I've got some other ideas floating around smile.gif You'll see when I end up photoshopping them up.

What about the thin steel? :|

Is it like ridiculously thin or something? I've only heard great things about this case.

Still waiting for email back from a few places to see about sponsorship or not.

single bay res would likely give enough room for the rad but fitting a fan might still be a problem. The bottom rad might also prove to be a challenge as you have to make sure it doesnt collide with psu nor the 120 rad. Snug fit but should be possible.
edit: If possible, I'd think about pump/res combo instead of the bay res.
post #56 of 381
May I ask, whats the point of THAT much rad for just those components? or is it for the challenge?

Yep, aware of all of this. I'm thinking about a res/pump combo too, but they're all so ugly frown.gif

Mostly for quiet cooling, I can have awesome temps but still maintain a dead silent PC.

Also the challenge, my TJ07 is nice, but ultimately too perfect. Looking for something to fill my mod twitch.

Yeah, my ambients can get that high too, but I have my fan on pretty much 24/7 in the summer.

Apparently it's 26* in my room at the moment, with my RX480 my CPU is idling (stock) at 40ish. Usually when I'm doing nothing it runs about 35-40.
