Any heat removed from your rig will end up in the room, plus you will have added even more latent heat to your room in the form of humidity. This will make the room very uncomfortable, even if it`s relatively cool, say 70 degrees. Adding a fan to draw off more heat from your rig will further aggravate the above, plus accelerate evaporation and make it necessary to add lots more water to your reservoir. The fan would also increase the likelihood of water droplets being blown off the waterfall to land on furniture, wood floor, etc. and other items you don`t want to get wet.

I went through so many configurations with my case ( I really like my lian-li v600 but it is small).

What I came up with is if I cut out the 3.5" drive bays at the bottom (Just need to drill out 2 rivets), the components of the H20-120 really fit quite well.



For the x1800 XT im not sure if i am going to touch it or not. Options:
1) Leave the stock air cooler on it.
2) Switch to a tide water later.
3) Use an Alphacool NexXxoS NVXP-3 VGA block and it to the loop.

Just out of curiosity, how well do you think the 80mm radiator would do at cooling just the cpu (e6400). With the 80mm I measured i could leave the bottom 3.5 drive bay in place and just mount the fan and radiator inside it.

I am not really an overclocker I just want decent temps at lower noise. In order to keep my cpu at 50C when playing EQ2 I have to run the zalmann 7700 full throttle.

Thanks in advance from a WC n00b.

also by clearing out the space i envisioned adding a seconnd radiator in series with the fan between them like this.

I would go with the second idea, (put the pump before the res) if you did the waterfall you would only want it for looks.

Temps would be the same

Dust/lint would be getting in your loop

Constantly refilling the distilled water

Hi Wht, I see youve been keeping busy....Its looking good..I dont know if you know that you can get a Swiftech Rad box and put a double rad on the back of you case..It would be more efficient than using 2 single 120's.

If you want to run it all inside you might want to think about a single heater core if it will fit.They also have a new rad out called the GT Extreme that is out doing the BIX by 40 or 50 degrees. That might be a real good one to look at.
I'm going to link you to some of this stuff so you can be thinking about it. See by adding a second single 120 you will be adding more restiction to your loop...Where if you used a double or a 240 rad it wouldn't be "as" restrictive as the two 120's....... Go pump-rad-cpu-res..

Do you overclock your video card? If not your stock cooling would probably be fine unless it's running hot or something. Ive'heard that T-Take Tidewater isn't any good, but I've never looked at reviews of it or anything..

You look really good on everything but adding that second rad like that. And if you got right down to it , it would probably work OK... Swiftech MCB-120 Black 120mm Radbox Kit

Yes I looked into placing it on the back with a rad box but there just isnt room.

Heres a newegg link to the case:
Lian-Li V600

And as i want to keep it all internal, thats why i was thinking single rad initially, then if i see i need more I could add a second in series, but that I am looking to find some info on that GT series you mentioned.

Also you mentioned using a single heater core. I just thought the heater cores where the internal part of the radiator. Would a single heater core cool better than a single radiator?

Thanks.

Hey I just looked at your case, is there any way that you could move your fan past the frame in the front, and by using gaskets and bolts use that for the intake and rad fan? If you can seal it that way you would have more room and a better flowing fan.It's good to mount your fan a 1/2 or 3/4 away from the rad. it helps to eliminate the dead spot fans have if they are to close...Then you would have a lot more room to add a second fan on the back of your rad..

I thought I left you a link on the GT? Oh well I'll leave you one this time...I haven't seen the extreme for sale anywhere yet.....

If you can get a single heater core in it that would be the best of them all, I'll link...I dont have the exact wattage dissipation on the heater cores but they would kick major tail on any of the rads...

If noise doesn't bother you a lot think about using high cfm fans, which you will need with a heater core or other high performence rads. The heater cores are automotive cores..

Oh wow that Black Ice GTX120 looks sweet. I may have to plan for and wait for that unit. 30% flow rate increase with same head pressure is quite a redesign.

Oh well thanks again, i better get back to work and actually do something to earn my pay
