Those seem like they may work. If not you my need to drill a bigger hole. I was going to suggest you check McMaster Carr but you would need to buy way to many.

I might, which could be a ***** lol. Let me check the exact measurements of the base and how much space I have to work with.

Ok, I used a dial caliper and I got .635" which is just bigger then 5/8 (.625)

I'm liking this idea! Can't wait to see it done. Depending on how hard it is I'd like to do it to my hue controller.

@Unstable

It's really easy to do. Disassembling the Hue took about 5mns. Lined up the plastic cover behind the drive bay cover. Used a marker to outline the holes. Scored it and then I used a 3/4 bit. Might have to make it bigger if I can't get a proper grommet.

All I plan on doing after is just hot gluing the PCB to the back of the plate.

It's probably the simplest mod I have ever tackled

I originally posted this in the watercooling forum, but got practically no response, and you all seem like a helpful bunch so I thought I'd repost it in here for your thoughts and input.

I've done a little research in terms of just different radiators and such, and I guess the general rule is 1 120 mm rad for each water block correct? So I came up with a solution that would potentially answer that for my situation ranging from 360-240 mm of needed radiator surface area. I chose to go with a 240 mm radiator up top and a 120 mm on the rear exhaust even though people seem to be able to install a 360 mm in the C70 with very little hassle, mainly because the spot that is above my DVD drive is where I have my SSD's tucked away, and I don't want to remove/move my DVD drive location due to obstructing the radiator/fans.

Keep in mind though that the second 120 mm radiator probably wouldn't get installed unless I got a second graphics card, so hopefully you can visualize what the loop would look like without that.


I'm not really sure if the pump that I have chosen in the picture would actually be enough, I just really liked that the reservoir and pump are directly attached and one unit. I'm also not sure if that reservoir would be big enough? Anyone have any thoughts on that that they would be willing to share?

Thanks for stopping by and dealing with my horrible drawing. redface.gif

Based off of the one response that I did get I would probably still install the 120 in the back.

If it was me, I would throw the Ex240 like you have in the top and a thicker rad in the bottom, say the RX240 instead of the 120 in the back of the case. Never liked the 120 rads on the back, just looks tacky to me. But that is only my 2cents.gif

The rule of thumb is 120mm radiator for each block plus another 120mm radiator for additional cooling. You have one CPU & two GPUs which means three blocks. So basically (3 x 120mm) + 120mm = 480mm radiator. I suggest 240mm radiator up top & another 240mm radiator at the bottom. Remember, the 240mm radiator at the bottom going to squeeze the PSU cables a little bit but it's doable. I recommend XSPC EX240 radiators or any 35mm thickness radiators of your choice. The 35mm thickness suggestion because need to take into account the clearance available in the case. I also recommend, for the 240mm radiator at the bottom, go for push/pull configuration (4 fans; 2 fans on each side) for better thermal performance.

Yeah I quickly found out that I didn't actually have enough radiator for the proposed build originally, and was thinking today that I might be able to put an additional 120 on the front intake. But for the moment I only have one 670 so really I would only need 360 mm of radiator for what I'm currently running. I could always add onto it later correct? Unless you highly suggest I do run the 240 on the bottom in push/pull.

If I were to do that where would you suggest I put the pump and reservoir? Are there any bay reservoir/pumps that you would recommend? Or would I be better off with a standard pump and place that in the empty bay space and separate reservoir that is mounted somewhere that I'm not sure of at the moment.


How "big" of a pump do I really need for 3 blocks and 480 mm of radiator?
