240 rad and a 120 rad in a CM Storm Scout - Page 2

post #11 of 44
The only loop order you need to know is the res goes before the pump. The water moves fast and equalizes the temp of the water. The brackets are not needed, they are for mounting the rad on the cases back fan location. You might want to look and some rad mounts unless you plan to make your own. Here is a set I like that don't break the bank.

Have you thought about where to place your HDD's, it looks like you are planning on putting them behind you BR drive.

Those rad mounts look good, but I should point out at this point that I am UK-based. I will edit the OP to say that.
I think it won't be too hard to pick up L shapes metal mounts like that.

There is a fair amount of space at the bottom of the case, in between the PSU on the left and the 360 rad on the right, so there should be enough room for the BR drive and a number of HDDs and SSDs. They might get a bit hot... but I don't think HDD heat is a big issue.

The heat shouldn't be that bad, the air coming out of rads is not that hot

i like the idea of one of the rads being in front of the case, but you presumably would want to have the hhd in a stable place.
My suugestion is that you mount the RX 360 outside on the back of the case, you can buy a rad holder, and also get this for a reservoir and pump so you dont have to worry about rad mounts.

I was going to create a makeshift HDD and SDD enclosure out of mostly L-shaped pieces of metal to hold them wherever they end up.
Because of this, I would much prefer to still have the CX360 at the front as I would prefer the aesthetics of that.

What is the name of that reservoir & pump?( Your image doesn't link to it.) It looks very nice and compact, but I would like to compare the technical specs of different pumps due to their effect on cooling. I'm not sure why you said that that res/pump stops me from worrying about rad mounts. Or were you referring to the fact that an external rad will not need rad mounts?

That looks like the XSPC D5 double bay res.

It's an XSPC Dual Bay 5.25 Reservoir which also houses the pump. What i meant was that if you get this you don't have to worry about getting a separate reservoir along with its mounts. here's a link http://dazmode.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=122_168&products_id=756.
The pump is a D5 Vario which is a very good one. here's the link http://dazmode.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=157_71&products_id=1734

I see you found my beloved Red Alert mod biggrin.gif I managed to stumble on this thread and I have one main piece of advice: both the EX360 and the RS360 are too thick to fit in the top of the scout without conflicting with the heatsinks on motherboards. There is only 27 or so mm of space between the top of the case and where the motherboard will sit. Since the EX and RS are both 35 mm thick, there is no way they will fit in the top of this case, even with the shroud up top. I had to get the Black Ice Pro III rad as it is only 25mm thick. There is also a magicool rad that is that thin as well, but i cant find it atm. FYI, this one rad cools my 955 at 4.2 and both my 6950s overclocked, temps are 47C max, idle 32C (with Enermax magma 1500 rpm fans). I think a 360 and 240 would be fine for an overclocked 1155 and two 580s, 360s even better. PM me with any specific questions, or post in my work log or this thread, I will be checkin in to see how its goin. Hope this helps mate, glad my mod could be of some help thumb.gif

Thanks for taking an interest Shadow_Foxx, your mod is definitely inspirational! I figured this project would be much more fun than buying a Corsair 800D and sticking the rads in there.

I could not find the Black Ice Pro III on a UK website. I did find a slim Magicool radiator, but it is 30mm rather than the 25mm of the Black Ice.
Link to 30mm 360 Magicool Radiator

In other news, I've sourced the blocks now, and the res and pump were easy to find on UK sites.

RESERVOIR: XSPC Acrylic Dual 5.25” Reservoir £50
Since I will have cut out all my 5.25" bays, I will still need to mount this somewhere.

PUMP: Laing D5 Vario £80

CPU BLOCK: XSPC Raystorm £50

GPU BLOCKS: EK-FC580 Acetal and black backplate £80
As far as I can tell this block is the best value for money for reference 580s. I'm not sure how neccesary the backplate is.

Tools
Dremel 4000 w/ flex shaft
Any old jig saw and drill
Low adhesive tape
WD-40
eyes and ear protection
Rasp, file and sand paper

Hi!

You can mount the 240mm radiator at the bottom of the case, and a 120mm at the back.

Check out the CM Storm Spectre in my signature, or look at my albums and you can see how it fits.
But it may bump into the PSU cables, but it will fit biggrin.gif
