Time to start wiring it all up. All the fittings fit just about perfectly. =D



Wiring going to be so much fun. Every cable has to be sleeved and custom length. I think I'll first take care of my lighting. I have to remove the motherboard for that.

Gosh I'm so jealous is been wanting to do an ft02 build on water for the longest time but sadly income simply won't allow for it. However I've got big ideas for this case and someday I shall do my build!

I do have a quick question though since I don't actually have the case I've been trying to figure out whether you'd be able to flip the rad having the inlet and outlet at the front of the case without modding it, or if I will need to mod it to get that config to work.

Also, subbed :-)

Thanks. And To answer your question; I don't think there is a way you could put the inlet and outlet side of the rad toward the front unless you removed the HDD Cage. It is possible however to leave the HDD Cage completely intact if you remove the filter assemblies and plant the rad in the floor with the fans in a pull configuration. You will however have to cut out a small part of case's border at the bottom to be able to get the rad in there. There is another build somewhere on this forum recently where someone did just that, its quite a nice build. And you can make the loop extra clean if you want to by not installing an additional 120mm rad at the top; Just put the inlet and outlet toward the rear of the case and run the outlet (opposite side of motherboard tray) to the CPU > GPU > Res > Pump. Run the inlet of the rad with some rotary snake fittings to pipe tubing behind the motherboard tray. Though doing this, I'm not sure you can run 3/4 1/2 tubing behind the motherboard tray, but the results would be an extremely clean loop, I don't think you will run into any pressure or flow problems doing this either.

If you decide not to remove the HDD Cage, you will have to replace the fan with a 25mm 180. Here is one by phobya that will work fine.
Phobya 180mm x 25mm

Here is a link the the other fellows build I was referring too.
PandaSPUR WaterCooled FT02

And I would refer to lowfat's WaterCooled FT02, he does really great work. Very clean loop running it behind motherboard tray.

Thanks for the response man! Yeah I was already planning on removing the hdd cage and as far as a clean loop goes I'm actually planning on making a shroud for the drive bays and putting pump and res in there and running my tubing straight up / down to the rad from the bottom of that then coming out of the right side of the shroud would be a parallel loop to the gpus and cpu, all the tubing would be acrylic tubing >smile.gif I'm on my phone right now but I'll sketch up a rough drawing when I get home, but what I'm seeing in my head will hopefully be unlike any ft02 ever seen before lol now I just need funding >. < I would actually do this build for someone else just so I can bring it into existence and show off what I can do lol


**edit after going through lowfats log it looks like someone actually had a similar idea to mine guess I'm not as original as I thought tongue.gif doesn't deter me from wanting to put it in action
