post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Just an idea. What do you think?

Intakes

140 at the rear
140 on the bottom
230 on the front
230 on the top

Output

4x140 > 4x4 radiator > 4x140 Push Pull

Liquid cooling on the CPU, Video card and Memory.

You'd want to check how much distance you have between the top of your video cards and the side cover. Also, know that the side cover will get very heavy when filled, so if you need to play around inside, be sure the in/out tubing is long enough to lay it down or move it to the side.

If you don't want to use fans on that radiator at all, you'll also have a lot of work to plug air leaks to keep the pressure up (I'd suggest using/making a smoke machine).

(Fans pushing > Mesh of the case > Rad > Fans pulling) Also, know that the side cover will get very heavy when filled, Do you see that being too much for the case to handle? so if you need to play around inside, be sure the in/out tubing is long enough to lay it down or move it to the side. I will make sure it is long enough, Thank you for that tip.

For use, I don't think so as long as the radiator itself is on the inside; but it depends how often you dig around inside and have to remove it. If you want the radiator mounted on the outside it may get a bit tipsey.

You could fill a 140.4 worth of rad with water and hang it from the side using masking tape or what not to see if the weight will cause it to easily topple.

If you'll have fans attached to the rad, there's no point in making the case air-tight. If you wanted to just use the air pressure from the intake fans without exhaust fans on the rad, you would need to.

[Edit]
If it were me, I'd put the radiator on the inside and one set of fans on the outside in pull-only. Cougar HDB 140s to keep it silent, specifically... or reverse the whole thing and push-only for a little fresher air.

I have been researching a few weeks but today I finally looked into total price to WC and it's looking near $750. For now I'm going to stick to Air cooling. I will post in there from now on. Thank you very much man. I appreciate the effort.
