I've only had two cases including the Switch.

This was my first. It was green instead of red.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811156226

Can't remember if it actually was a bad case. But after the Switch, it feels like it was.

hi guys, I am thinking of getting this case and do a cpu watercooling loop. I want to know will it fit a 60mm thick 360rad on top with asus rampage IV extreme? Also will the motherboard be blocking spaces for other watercooling stuffs? Like res? Thanks a lot!

Hey simon - I forgot to get back on this fan, I did what you said - trimmed the fan, and it just fits biggrin.gif
My first Dremel experience !! very happy about it all, but I did chicken out on trimming that top bay floor - I need to practice, but I wanted to say Thanks ! again, and to rep you for it +1

Im a watercooling newbie here, so I really need suggestions and helps from you guys please!

Im planning to have my build like this:

Asus Rampage IV Extreme
Intel 3930k
Crucial M4/Samsung 830 256GB SSD
Western Digital Green 3TB HDD
G-SKILL DDR3 1600 RipjawsZ 32GB 8GB*4 kit
Corsair AX850 Power Supply
Asus DC2T GTX670
NZXT Switch 810

So I am planning to do a cpu-only loop, and I have no idea what blocks/res/pump/rads/fans/fitting/tube/coolant that I should get
I had built a watercooling computer few years ago and that was a cpu-only loop, I was using ddc pump at that time.
I am on a budget so please suggest components that have great values, thank you very much!

So to begin with,

What block would you suggest for 3930k?
What is the best rad if I want to get a 360 to put it on the top of the 810case? I suppose a 60mm wont fit with push-pull setup, should I just use single sided fans or get a thicker one and single sided or get a thinner one and do a push-pull?
Is D5 still the best bump?
For res, is it better to use those 5.25 bay res(will I still have enough slots for my SSD and HDD if I do use those?) or the one that is a cylinder like and hang it in the middle of the case?
What fans have a good balance between noise and performance since I may leave my PC 24/7 in my bedroom. I was just using cooler master's fans back then.
Also I was using barbs and clamps but this time I would like to try compression fittings for better looking, what type of compression fittings should I get for my setup? And actually barbs vs compression which one is safer? I was told barbs are safer?
Tube shouldnt be a big problem since I will just follow the size of the fittings
What about coolant? Just distilled water? I am not the type of ppl who want fancy looks so UV or led things are not needed.

I am really sorry for so much question and I really, really appreciate for everyone who can help me! Please and thanks!

A 60mm rad with push/pull might not fit with the RIVE.
You can go for something a bit thinner, like an SR1. Heard great things about that rad. It has low FPI so you can run quieter fans with it. Or you can get the skinny rad like the GT Stealth. You can run push/pull with that no problem.
Also, are you gonna throw in your GPU in the loop at some point? If not, I would suggest going with an H100 or something.

In my loop, I'm using a XSPC Raystorm block for my CPU.
My tubing is Primochill Primoflex Pro LRT tubing.
I have a bay res, but you can use that or the cylindrical one. They both fit.
What I'm doing is putting my storage HDD in the hotswap bay and mounting my SSD on the case wall with velcro.

For the fans, the Scythe Gentle Typhoons get lots of recommendations. I have the 1850 RPM version, but I'm very sure they slower slower ones.

From what I've read, compression fittings tend to be safer, and IMO they look nicer than barbs and clamps.

Lots of people still use the D5.

For the coolant, I'm using distilled water with a dye and a silver killcoil.


Hope this was of some help. It's pretty late here so I dunno if I made any mistakes or left something out.

wow! Thank you so much for answering all my questions! Thank you very much!
I may or may not add my GPU into the loop in the future, the reason I want to build this loop is because I think watercooling parts can be used for quite a long time and I like the process of building it.

Regarding the rad, I read the youtube review of the switch 810 from overclock3d, in the video it is said that push-pull and single sided fans setup dont really have much of a difference? is that true? Would it be enough if I just do i single sided 60mm 360rad on the top for my cpu? If i do add my GPU in in the future I may as well get another rad at the bottom.

Just put all this together the other night. Will be putting a custom loop in soon. :]

It's very close with a 60MM RAD, but can be done. Like you may have to cut the tabs off of the 8 Pin PWR for the CPU. It's like 88MM of room, a 60MM Rad & Fans will be 85MM. That is cutting it close. I was going with a 60MM @ first, but I can't cause I wanna run my tubing down the side. I will have a 120 on the back, so a 60MM thick RAD will stop that.. It's a lot of info on this case in this thread & these guys are very helpful. Look @ the 1st page. It's some build logs, some have videos. This build log here is a good one. He has a 60MM 420 RAD in push/pull.... Good luck..thumb.gif

Thank you for your input! I have read the builds that you have posted, and the concern I am having right now is that I dont know if the heatsink of the top of the Rampage IV Extreme will be blocking the push-pull RX360 or not. Because in the video review of the 810 from overclock3d, gigabyte G1 was used and it's heatsink blocks one of the fan for a push-pull setup

Here's my contribution to the club:

Majority of build without my new ram:

Side panel on:

SH100463%20-%20OCUK%20Resized.jpg

Side panel off:

SH100465%20-%20OCUK%20Resized.jpg

With my new ram:

SH100472%20-%20OCUK%20Resized.jpg

Installed but not powered on.

SH100473%20-%20OCUK%20Resized.jpg

Installed and powered on with ambient light.

SH100474%20-%20OCUK%20Resized.jpg

With less ambient light at which point my camera dies a death and can't operate....

Remaining things i would like to get:

2x120MM Corsair AF Fans
3x140MM Corsair AF Fans

Either braid the cables myself, or get some bitfenix cable extensions as i've not braided before and don't think i've got the time to do it myself!
