You don't need to worry about blowing the rad air onto the vrm, they were cooled with the warm air blowing onto them as the air blow through from the heatsink in the stock configuration. My rad hangs in the middle of my case. It pulls and exhausts into the case, fans at 800rpm.....no issues.

I can join this club now smile.gif
I got an Antec 620 on sale at Frys for my evga classy 560 ti 448. The stock cooler worked well, (67*C peak load) but just got too loud in doing so. I saw someone else make a bracket/hat that was a nice easy mounting solution, so I fabbed up my own.

painted it textured: http://www.ebaudio.com/MyPics/new_pc_build/IMG_6689.JPG

I already had some VRM and memory heatsinks that I had mounted underneath the stock cooler, so I am just reusing those until my swiftech 480-HS arrives. http://www.swiftech.com/gtx480-hs.aspx

Here it is mounted:

For now, the radiator is right behind my V8 cpu cooler. It is push pull with an excaliber fan (push) and the antec fan (pull) So, it peaks at 50*C at 985MHz on 3dmark11. Got a P7226. http://3dmark.com/3dm11/2776890


So, when I installed it, the pump rattled loudly. not air in the pump, but the impeller making noise when it was mounted upside down horizontally on the card. I tried all kinds of stuff. Well, short of returning it and scrapping this mod, I decided to take apart the pump and inspect the impeller. What I found (sorry didnt get pics) was that there was about 3-4mm of axial play on the shaft that the impeller spins on. I used some small heatshrink cut to about 1/16" and used that on the shaft as a shim on the magnet end. It seemed like the noise what the blades touching the housing. After a few attempts to get the shimming right, the pump is now silent. SOOOOOOO much better now having a quiet system smile.gif Best $40 mod yet smile.gif

Thanks for the ideas guys!

Looks very nice. What type and thickness of metal did you go with for the bracket?

Love how quiet it all is, just a wisper really. Love this system, runs everything ultra. No more headphones needed and can hear a pin drop while benchmarking thumb.gif

Thanks for posting the photos. Are you using 38mm Panaflos on the H100?
It's tough to get any decent 38mm fans in our area, NCIX only stocks the Scythe Ultra Kaze 120mm x 38mm, which have low-quality bearings.
They used to sell 38mm Panaflos, and even some 38mm Deltas, but not any more.
Other than buying from the US and paying high shipping and duty, Newegg is the only source I've seen that stocks 120mm x 38mm Panaflos (Rexus).

Good job stuffing the Corsair coolers in the 932!
The 580's cooler rad fits very well under the card, between the hd cage and that lovely Seasonic 1000w.
(That psu is 50 bucks off at NCIX this week, so damn tempting.)

My other question is which way are you running the push-pull airflow through the top and bottom rads ?

Lookin' good:thumb:
