Want to re-do my setup; I have a few questions

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hello,

It's been a few months since I started doing a full custom water loop in my computer and it's been a lot of fun. Now, with that said, my head has been itching to do a few changes with my entire setup.

1) I want a case that can fit two XSPC RX240 radiators internally; without having to mod the case. Are there any cases out there that have enough room?

2) All this time, I've been using a bay reservoir. I feel like moving on to a tube reservoir. Is there anything additional that I'll need? Also, would my current pump be compatible? I'm using the Swiftech MCP655.

I'd check in to AA's WCA's now if you don't want to go any further. You've just contracted the watercooling bug.

Need a budget for the case first. thumb.gif

The NZXT Switch 810 can fit a 360mm top / 240mm bot stock. and should have miles of room for any tube res you want to add in.

Then you have 2 options.
Tear apart the res and take the pump out
or
Just sell the combo and buy a tube/res combo like:
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/14133/ex-res-301/EK_D5_X-Res_Top_140_Pump_Top_Reservoir_Combo_w_Alphacool_VPP655_Variable_Speed_Pump_Installed.html?tl=g30c97s152

Edit: From my knowledge, once you take apart that res it will likely never hold water again so you will be throwing it away.

Say I buy this tube:

Does the pump just attach to the bottom?

500$ for the case, or the case and watercooling?

About 99% sure it's only with certain pumps, yours is a different design so it can't be mounted like that so you would need a different pump.
