before during my prodigy build, i only had the sidepanel usb 3.0 plugged in to my mobo but whenever i insert a flash drive or porta hdd it says that they need to be formatted or that there's something wrong with the device. when i plug them to the mobo's rear usb ports everything is working fine. does the prodigy really have faulty usb 3.0 side panel ports? i had a usb micro receiver for my wireless keyboard and mouse plugged in and they work just fine. only on storage devices that the ports are messed up.

Ok, I'll be moving to a full loop here in a month or so and I'm trying to figure out configurations. I cannot find any pictures of any previous builds in this thread that really helps me out that much. I want to find a way to drop two 240mm rads in the case with both push/pull. I know I want to go with a thick rad on the front and I know that will work, but where my question lies is with the top radiator. If I place the pull fans on the outside of the case between the handles, is there still enough room for the push fans if I use a slim 240 mm rad? So, thick rad in the front and slim rad on the top. I know I may end up only doing a half push/pull on the top if the push fan closest to the front of the case comes to close to the thick rad. Anyone know if I will end up with some bad clearance issues with this setup?

Why not use a 240 up top and say a 180 or 200 on the front? You should be able to get fan clearance for both push/ pull that way.

I may just completely scratch that idea. I may go with a copper theme loop. I have a full copper HD7950 block that I got when Danger Den went out of business a few months ago and I was thinking of going with copper rads to match that. So, I was thinking of these rads to go with this block:

Block:


240mm rad for the front:

120mm rad for the back:

Quick question...I'm planning on using the Swifttech Apogee pump/block combo on my CPU and I plan on using a small res and screw it to the side of the little PSU shroud where the SSDs can be placed. Having the pump slightly higher than the Res won't put too much stress on the pump will it? Because I know you're technically supposed to have the pump below the res.
post #5427 of 11743
Why not attach the res(if that tiny) right on the apogee? The would look and function great I would think! You do have to make a cutout or use washers though with that pump

Thanks for the heads up on making a cutout for the motherboard tray. I remember reading about that now. Still trying to think how I would directly attach a res to this:
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/16151/ex-blc-1119/Swiftech_Apogee_Drive_II_Pump_and_CPU_Waterblock_Combo_-_Sockets_11551366_APD2-1155-1366.html

=\

Edit: This is the res I was going to use:
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/9574/ex-res-155/Bitspower_Water_Tank_Z-Multi_80_Inline_Reservoir_BP-WTZM80P-BK.html

I planned on making a small hole in the bottom of a case and then running a pipe to the back for a drain port.

You can put a male to male threaded fitting. I would post links and stuff but I am on my phone. Maybe someone else can chime in on this. I emailed swiftech months ago and they said you are able to mount a reservoir right to it. And because the Prodigy has a flat mobo tray it should be simple. That and it will look clean too! At least I think it would smile.gif

My only concern is how close the res would get to the back rad.
