D5 #1 > D5 #2 in TubeZilla > bottom GPU > top GPU > CPU > EX360 rad in the roof above mobo. That's where it gets tricky. I'm going to attempt to run a tube from the EX360 rad through the grommet at the case rear down to a Monsta on the BOTTOM on the power supply side (rad ports towards the REAR of the case). Then use some 90 degree connectors from the bottom 360, and run a tube along the rad, then up to the top Monsta but with the ports near the FRONT of the case. Assuming I can get a tube between the HDD cage and the P.S. case door. Then run from the top Monsta through the round grommet near the front / top of the case down to D5 #1 to complete the loop. Not sure if that will work, but I'm low on options at this point, It makes sense in my head, assuming it fits and I do the install in the proper order. Hell I still haven't considered drainage / fill options at this point either! smile.gif

OMG

I am lost and my head is spinning now wheee.gif you sounded like me when I have a few drinks and have a good idea or someone ask me something I know about I just go to town talking.....

The most entertaining build on OCN!!!!!

Still laughing to my self thanks I needed that after the day at work I had!! You the best brother bart!!!

I'm at work, running on zero sleep and stone sober. biggrin.gif I probably described it badly, but it makes sense in my head. I also have to find a way to fabricate a floor mount for the big tube. I do NOT want to drill holes in the case wall and mount it there. I'd much rather drill holes in the 120mm fan cover plates on the bottom, since I have lots of those. I need to get some sort of right-angle steel mounting thingies. I'm pestering my tool expert friend for advice on that one.

Ya know that CL sells these floor mounts. Might come in handy for mounting that res. I dunno . . .

You know what you otta do - a mock-up. Put all the parts in and see if it will all fit the way you see it in your head.

I found something cheaper: $5 at Canadian Tire got me these things:





There's only 1 bolt in each one, not tightened up, hence the "leaning tower of Pizza". smile.gif But for $5, these just might work. It would cost me more to spray paint them then it did to buy them, LOL! I'd just have to drill 1 more hole in each bracket for the bottom bolt, and then bolt them directly to the 120mm fan plate at the bottom. Not sure how good an idea this is, but I like it in theory. smile.gif

EDIT: tightened up the screws, and even with only 1 screw per L-piece, it's surprisingly stable! Damn, this just might work! I'll have to take some precautions about vibrations, but this $5 ghetto mod might be just what the doctor ordered!

I like it Bart looks good to me and it will work. I like seeing a DIY instead of always store bought. Tell you a secret you could do with these instead of spray painting them.. You could cover them with heat shrink and shrink it then you will have it the color you want!! Just an idea..

My tube isn't Bitspower though, it's an Aqualis res, so I don't think that would work. Thanks for the suggestion though man!

That's a damn good idea! It would cost me more to paint those things than they're worth, but I DO have black heatshrink around here somewhere! Excellent idea Scott, thanks much!

NOOB TIP: never argue with a drill when drilling thick metal with a bit that isn't meant for it. You will lose:
