Thanks, I managed to overlook it. The build looks great!

Not sure if this would work or not, but I think something along the lines of

would suffice to get a smaller port

I'm also taking a look at the radiator/h60 configuration...
What did you try doing before using the t-line?
Did you try doing full submerge?

EDIT: Thought on the radiator. You might be able to loop two of those 40x10mm radiators on top of eachother

I never tried doing a full submerge. The pump that I was using was small and felt cheap. I was worried and didn't trust its waterproofing enough to attempt this. I tried to avoid a t-line by using medical needles (tiny insulin needles for my dog) to suck the air out / put more water in and cover it up with electrical tape. This didn't work and I eventually gave in and made a t-line.

I've thought about adding more fans on top of each other.. but just wait until you start putting things into an NES, 10mm is a luxury.

Yeah, I haven't tried putting it all in yet with the radiator and fans. But if there is extra space it could be an option. I think I'm going to try doing a full submerge on the h60 pump. It has a warranty so worst case scenario is I try sending it back to Corsair... Just need a fan power adapter so I can run the pump off a PSU

Liquid cooling an NES seems pretty impractical to me. I've worked in small spaces and while liquid cooling can be good for shifting space, the cooling system takes up more overall space in the process. Working in tight spaces is all about keeping heatsinks and fans close to vents. Because you are dealing with a smaller volume of air than a normal case, you don't need as much power to generate positive airflow.

As for submersion, that's a different animal entirely, and you really want to start with a water tight enclosure.

The problem with the NES is that its all think plastic. So there are no vents aside from the one on the top of the case. I mount small fans here to help push/pul the air through. Also, the radiator would sit right under this vent.

For me at least its less about the practicality (I agree it's not the best solution) and more about how I wanted something unique when I was building this. Having been inspired by another NES build I knew I had to change it up so I chose to go with as much power as possible and watercooling.

So with the radiator, I'm thinking over dremmeling out some of the top vent of the NES. I wanna get right of the lower bars so that it would conduct more airflow. If I can do this, I would most likely mount the radiator to the top of the NES case right under this vent. Thoughts? Too intrusive?

Looking at the construction of the H60 pump, I do not trust that it is entirely water proof. Not sure how these things are made in the factory. Alas, I too will be using a t-line.
I did figure out that the round thing on the back of the pump is actually a buzzer that goes off if there is a problem with the pump.

This is the best thing I could find in a quick search, looks like what you used? How'd that work?
