Also, are zip ties sufficient or would you say Dwood's bracket is a must? The base of the cooler is pretty tight with the GPU so I would imagine it would be good enough.

I would say they're sufficient considering how many people have done it that way. I'm going with Dwood's bracket because it's looks a lot cleaner.

Nice Rig BTW!!! thumb.gif

Haha, yeah I love this thing. Except for the fan. Can't stand the sound of it. Hopefully tomorrow I'll have everything to do the Antec 620/ Corsair Hydro series mod.

Let me know what you guys think!
Thanks

First off let me say great minds think alike, i was thinking of ram coolers for both sides of the cpu and WHAM, you post a pick of what it would look like. That is awsome thumb.gif

Your really going to enjoy The Mod.

You wont have an issue using zippys to secure the pump to card, before Dwood's wonderful bracket zippys were the easiest way to accomplish The Mod. YELLOWBEARD (Corsair Forums) from what i can tell was the first to do this modification using a custom bracket he made. Because of the amount of work and the fact you had to destroy the stock bracket this mindblowing cooling method did not gain much steam. It was not untill a still "unknown poster" from the UK who after reading Yellowbeards great log posted some mock up picks of how zippys could be used instead ...... and The Mod as we know it now was born to the masses. I know, more info than need but i felt the urge to type

My zippys have not backed off yet, still great temps. Simple stupid and cheap tongue.gif

I now have 2 biggrin.gif
And they fit snuggly in my 300R.
I am still using the Zip Tie method, it just works so well it is silly. A Ton of heat pours out of both rads when I'm making them work, I love it. First rad is mounted to the rear exhaust fan mount, second is mounted to the side panel door fan mount. I had to get creative with the tubing as there is not a lot room. I attempted to fit one of the rads to the front of the case but it would require some modding to work. Mounting it to the top mesh would not work with my current CPU cooler. The mesh is also fairly weak and I don't know if it would hold a 120mm radiator in that position without bending.
