What I want to build, is this:

What I am worried about is the clearance for the 140mm Radiator under the 360mm Radiator (The scaling I did for the radiators were improper, so the image isn't probably how the radiator placement will exactly look). Will the 140mm with the fan fit under the 360mm radiator in push-pull? Both radiators will be Koolance's slim radiators.


I sometimes get a bit busy with a day job, 3 builds going on, and an attempt at having a life, lol wheee.gif

The question that begs to be asked here is why, since it's a new build and not just a bunch of parts already on hand to find a way to use, would you add in complexity, and in the process, sacrifice capability. . .


Using a slim rad up top only to make room for a single rad on the rear, when a XT45 fits up top in PP and would have a lot more capacity than the slim pair.

The use of the slim rad on the bottom is another seriously questionable choice, when there's enough room there for about anything you want height wise.

The setup as it is, may be acceptable for a single GPU, or even dual GPU's depending on ambients and overclocks, but just isn't going to cut it for triples and good clocks.


Sorry if I seem to be dashing your dream rig, but I've never been good at putting looks above capability, nor am I keen on offering much help to others in that pursuit. . . . I just don't have the relevant experience there.

That's the first rig you've ever built?
Very impressed.

lol it's okay I understand
Honestly, I just really care about looks, I don't want to invest a lot of money in a computer that runs well but looks bad.

I know it sounds really dumb and all, but looks is a factor. and whats the difference between a slim or thick rad? Some degrees that is still much better than air cooling? I think it will be capable of doing all 3 gpu's and a cpu.
I don't mind criticism on the build, I didn't start the build yet so i'd like opinions tbh. I know what parts I wan't I am officially set on that, this is why what I care about now is just aesthetics. I am sorry though nonetheless for asking silly questions since I joined. I just have so much to learn about building computers smile.gif

I decided to get MCP655 pump with Alphacool pump top and FrozenQ X4 Tube reservoir. Reservoir has side outlet and bottom inlet. Can I be able to mount the pump below the reservoir or should I have to drill holes to mobo tray( I am also using a 280MM rad on the bottom)

If I mount the pump upside down while using side intake and bottom outlet, will it work???
If I get the Swifttech MCP655 PWM enabled pump, can I control the pump using the mobo 4 pin header?

You can mount it on the bottom of the res, just get a male to male connector and you can let it hang there and maybe put a little velcro behind it or something. Or if you have a bottom radiator you can rest it on that.

Hey guys, not a lot of activity in here of late. Quick question. I'm going to be getting a XT45 360mm radiator for up top and would like to do push/pull on it. Could I attach the push fans onto the bottom of the radiator and then with the same length screws attach three 120mm fans where the 200mm fans are by putting the screw through the fan and then screwing the rad securely to the top? So the pull fans would sit above the metal bracket where the rad screw in to? Hope that made sense.

Depending on what screws you are using, you might have to account for a little more length on the screws you use on the top. I used 30mm screws for the bottom fans and 35mm fans for the top. I also used washers. For my setup at least, the 30mm's wouldn't thread into the rad securely from the top.

Thx. Yes i had some Problems with the airflow. There are 2x 140mm Fans which blows into the Case but this is not enoug i think, Hardwaremonitor displays ~32°
Perhaps i should turn over two of these 5x120mm Fan´s to solve this problem

I have to say thank you. Now after finishing, i think i could have done some things much more better. But it was my first steps,have many 2 learn for the future. Next one shows better biggrin.gif

Sry 4 my english and some greetings from germany..

What reservoir are you using in your rig?

It is the "Phobya Balancer 250 Black nickel" as shown as here. Behind the Reservoir is a cuttable LED-Strip.
