Build Log - Prodigy (240 + 200 radiators + 5.25 bay!) - Page 2

I have ended up buying an aquaero. I have also got a couple of ap15s to replace the slower ones that are not adjustable. The aquaero fits nicely in the upside down drive cage so the 200/240 rads plus an optical drive are also possible in this case. At the expense of the hdd cages, of course.
I haven't fitted it all yet but will post pics when done. That'll basically be me finished. The only question remaining in my head is whether to dump the reservoir and just have a fill port, but as it's already fitted I don't currently see a need.

You're quite brave choosing such a small case for your first water cooling build, but it pays off. It looks awesome, good job!

I have a question about the 180° turn of the front, can you just take all the rivets/screws out, turn it and put them on again?
Do you think there's a way to put the hard drive cage on top of an optical drive?

Hello. Happy to help just because I got an answer!
Flipping the front panel is v easy, yes. Metal drill bit and pop rivet gun does the job quite quickly. I think it took me 10 mins and afterwards I realised I was being too coy and it should really have been 5 mins. Obviously the case feels like its falling apart when you take the front off but it's no biggy.

The optical drive cage is not quite as neat as there is nowhere to attach it to the bottom to make it fully stable - it is designed to screw into the top of the case but not the other way round. I've added a couple of brackets to the bottom of the case to fix it in place for the aquaero. So that bit isn't quite as simple. Do you already own the case? If not i'll take a couple of shots to show you what I mean.

As for the other question, sorry but I can't remember. I have chucked the drive cage so can't see if it would attach upside down to the top of the upside-down optical drive cage. But, I seem to recall thinking that it wouldn't during the build so may require a bit of rinky dink. Don't quote me on that though, as it were.

No unfortunately I don't own it already, it's a build im doing for a friend.
I'll be air cooling it with a Noctua NH-D14 and the inverted top panel seems like the better option so i can mount the front fan from the cooler.

I don't really understand what you mean, those holes should fit the optical drive and thus secure it?

thanks for the quick respone smile.gif
