140mm radiator, 25mm thick: Does such a beast exist?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My crazy brain thinks it wants to shove a 25mm thick 140mm radiator in between the towers of an NH-D14 that's mounted on a P8Z77-I Deluxe to cool a short GTX670... not very practical or logical, but who cares tongue.gif

Edit: whats the actual distance between those towers anyway?

That doesn't sound like a good idea in practice. If I understand correctly, you want to have:
Code:
| FAN | NH-D14 | 140x25 RAD | NH-D14 | FAN |

That would be problematic simply because you would need monstrous fans to pull air through the middle 3 layers, and chances are no two 140mm fans could adequately dissipate all the heat generated by a 670 AND your CPU.

In short,its a bad idea,you have the rad being airbraked by the heatsinks and the same heatsinks are feeding the rad hot air.

Yeah I figured as much, would be pretty amusing to see though. Usually the CPU is the first thing that gets water cooled... =P
