I was about to pull the trigger on the Switch 810 from a 600T and went with the Caselabs for more space. Switch is awesome case though, if I could convince my wife she needs a watercooled tower I would pick it up for her.

Don't need a case labs, yet. I plan to get my other 2 3.5" HDDs in this weekend, have some space scoped out and should be no issues at all.

Number of case labs with a 480 rad, a lot
Number of NZXT cases with a 480 very very few.
I don't think that presently anyone has a reversed ATX 810, with a 480 monsta rad installed, and that's what I like about my build. Its stupid crazy.





Will take some pics with the SLR once the build is all done.....

I feel like Reverse ATX is only good if you have the case on the left side of the desk...is that the right assumption? Mine is on the right side so I see no appeal to it, but some of the RATX cases are nice looking

Hi all

Toolman here,

Just finishing my initial research for my new Socket 2011 build and need some help with a few specific water cooling questions. My system list is below.

Case
NZXT Switch 810 Matt Black special edition (extra cutouts in top 5.25" bay for 360 rad push pull air flow)

The 4 140mm fans that come in the case I want to use to push pull air over the 2 hdd caddy bays. (so ill be putting a further 6 120mm fans up top in push pull on a 360 Rad.

MB
Asus Rampage IV Extreme

Cpu
3930K want to o/c to about 4.5

Thermal paste Artic cooling MX4

PSU
Corsair AX 860i (fully modular)

Memory
G.Skill 32GB (8 x 4GB) DDR3 1866MHz DIMM CL9

DVD-RW drives
Samsung SH-S222BB/BEBE 22x DVD±RW SATA ReWriter (Black)
& if space provides
Asus 24x DVD±RW DRW-24B5ST SATA ReWriter - Black
if i can i'd love to keep the 2 drives

hd's
Primary boot drive (win 7 64bit O/S)
SSD OCZ vertex 4 256 gb ssd

SSD No. 2 -fast primary storage (PhotoShop - premiere project files / swap disk etc)
OCZ vertex 4 256 gb ssd - yes another one smile.gif

Fast Large hdd
1 Seagate Barracuda 3TB 7200RPM SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache

I will also be adding 3 @ 1.5 tb drives from an old system Sata II drives only.

GFX Card (see note below)
Either OcUK Tech Lab H2O Custom GTX 670 2GB (Artic cooling MX4 paste)- with the XSPC razor water block (pre installed)
OR
If i only water cool the CPU then the Zotec 670 Amp gfx card.

Water cooling....(now the fun begins)

For Simplistic ordering (i would like to use the following kit).
XSPC RayStorm D5 EX360
(In push pull fans 6 @ NZXT FX-140LB Fans to match case fans).
Only problem is that the dual bay res would loose me 2 of my 5.25 bays and leave me having to remove the hot swap lower 5.25 bay and install a single dvd-rw there (and not the 2 dvd-rw's i want to try to keep.)

Here is the kit ill get if I'm ordering separates I'm getting it from specialtec.co.uk (i'm in Ireland so ordering from the US gets mad expensive Postage and import tax) frown.gif

CPU Block
XSPC Raystorm CPU block.

RAD.
The Black IDE SR1 360 55.7mm thick (I Presume I can use push pull with this rad and still clear the heat syncs on the rampage 4 extreme MB.

FANS
Thinking of these - any observations / recommendations.
6 @ NZXT FX-140LB Fans to match case fans.

Tubing
Tygon R3603 7/16" ID - 5/8" OD (11-16mm) Tubing : Clear (2 - 3 meters)

Coolant
Mayhems Pastel Fluid for Water Cooling 1 Litre : Ice White (2 bottles) - 2 of these.



Q1 In order to keep the 2 5.25" bays...
Im wondering about the best option for say a d5/pump head combo (on floor - or side of case) and a cylinder res (and how to attach it just behind the 5.25" bays).

Q2. I'm looking for a set of compression fittings to fit the system. Need some advice on a uk or European website company that would have various standard compression & 45 deg & 90 deg and extensions also.

Q3. If I choose to water cool the CPU & GFX also does anyone know the rough CPU temp increase's from CPU cooling alone.

Q4. Can the pre installed water cooled reference 670 in the link below be clocked to near the zotex amp's specks (second link).

Reference 670 (with preinstalled water block - (Artic cooling MX4 paste)
http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=WC-001-OP&groupid=701&catid=1914&subcat=2294

Zotec Amp

Thanks in advance to you all for taking the time to read the post cant wait to start this bad boy in Jan 2013.

Toolman.

I have mine on the right side of the desk, but I keep my PC on the desk, and I like to have my PC on the floor right next to the desk. I wanted to show my pc off when someone walks in the living room so for me the only way was to go reverse ATX.

ah makes sense then..mines in my bedroom so no point in showing off haha. If I had it in another room I'd like that also. Cool, never really thought of it that way thumb.gif

@ it-cartman..... from my experience monsoon compressions are nice. I have tygon 3603.... clouds in two weeks, will never buy it again. Maybe try the new primochill tubing.

I also say monsoons. They're great, easy to install, and you can save money with the 6-packs they offer
