Proper watercooling, or Corsair H100/H80? - Page 4

Now my maths is good and that means I'm 6mm short of space... mad.gif
Anyone have a suggestion for this? I may just end up drilling the whole front of my case and mounting it vertically. Shoddy design for a case costing £120 or something. May even return it for a different one (if possible)
Also, ilikebeer, i will post a mod log when i do that. So you can come 'laugh' at it smile.gif

Wait where are you trying to mount the rad, and which kit did you get? the 240 or the 360? Just for future reference saying the xspc rasa 750 kit doesn't tell us anything, they are all 750, you want to give the radiator number which would be 120, 240, or 360.

I would check our the water cooling section and see about other guys that have mounted a 360 mm rad (assuming you have that) in a 600T.

Yea forgot that part.. I got the 240.

But looking at dimensions it wont fit under the 5.25" bays at the front.

Things are never easy. I will get a few pics to show what i mean about fitment.

Doesn't it come with brackets to have it hanging off the case? I swear I have seen one of those kits have brackets for mounting the rad on the bad.

IS it the RX240, or the RS 240? I could never figure out how to get a RX240 in the 600t. I had to order a RS240 to get it all to fit. I am sure though that you could find a way to mount the RX240 inside the 600t off the HDD cages or something like that, possibly even on the floor of the case.

It may do, but i was hoping to get this inside. I have looked at some build logs, may just have to abuse the case a lil!

wheth4400 - Its the RS240 i am getting. Was hoping for an easy fit at the top or on the front , but i may have to cut into the 5.25" bay to get it to stand upright as its 277mm tall. If not i will try and return this case for different one. BUT, that is worst case scenario cos this case looks pretty cool.

Gonna get some pics tomorrow to show what i mean... Stupid power connector being on the tip of the mobo.rolleyes.gif

it does come with brackets to hang it from a 120mm fan spot, but most people prefer to have the rad inside to keep tubing to a minimum.

I agree it is the OP's choice on what he does, but OP why did you make this thread? For advice on what to do? You should take every suggestion in and consider. I do agree with both of you, watercooling is nice and cool and all. But it's not my preffered method as people have mentioned the pre-built loops aren't that great and can leak.. Air and water both have their ups and downs. (It depends on your case alot).

A custom water loop would be nice, but as people have suggested its quite a fair bit more then a decent air cooler. But it can run quieter (if you make it right), and the same goes for air coolers.

At the end of the day it's what you're looking to spend on aftermarket cooling.. I honestly don't think it's worth spending more then $60 when we have such nice coolers such as the Thermalright Macho. It can run a 2500k at 4.8GHz at 60c full load. (I've actually built a PC for a friend).

I'm not saying watercooling is stupid or not needed, just saying my opinion. Watercooling is COOL i agree, it's also quieter then some air coolers. It can also be more effective.

Theres the fact that air coolers to bend your motherboard (and can ALOT). That's why you don't go for something too big, they can also be terrible to maintain and install other components.
That said i'd suggest to go with a decent air cooler. Macho, i can't stress this enough..

@ The OP a build log is a good idea, i don't do them myself as i don't have the time usually. But it's a great idea simply because it can let other people see what you've done, it can also allow you to look back and see what you've actually done over time. It's also nice to have something other then the actual PC to show for all your work and money.

The other thing as you mentioned it can also get a second opinion on things, so if there's a better way to do something someone can just comment!

Just my two hundred dollars.

I have taken both air cooling and water cooling into consideration, after having multiple builds consisting of Air i need water. Im not happy about the size of modern CPU heatsinks and the added strain they cause in a vertically mounted case. Water will definitely help me.

In respect to the Build log, if it all fits easily i wont bother.. If it needs modification, i will not hesitate in getting out my Dremmel and disfiguring my case thumb.gif

Just grab a Noctua NH-D14 and you won't have to worry about long setup or anything. It literally took like 10 minutes to get that thing in and it's really amazing.
