Um, well.... If you are going to do the Rosewill case for WC, you are going to need some tools!wheee.gif

Or if you are going to use a new case that also works too!

What is your intentions on Liquid Cooling?

If you are willing to cut up your case or to do some work with those drive bays you might actually be able to fit a rad up front. How is the room in the front of that case?

Lian-Li makes brackets that you can add to the radiator that allows it to be used in the drive bay granted you have the room and depending on fan setup. Ill find a link quick. What are the total amount of drive bays that are free to be used?

Well, you could mount the RADS outside the case... it sure looks small. WC loops really don't free up space, you have to make room for the pump(s), rad(s), tubing and res. Yea, new case. If the reason you want to do this is looks, I could think of other ways to achieve that, like a new case with wiring expertly tucked away, and lighting. Maybe even mod and paint the case. If you want to push the OC further (if possible) or you have heat concerns that an air cooler isn't resolving, then your first step is to take an honest look at the space you now have, and ask if you wish to add the maintenance of a WC loop to your rig, and spend the bucks and take the time to do it right.

I had heard that AMDs run cooler than Intel chips. Just wondering, as I haven't done AMD since 2008. Plan to WC the video too?

Take a look around here at what others have done, then bring your questions and ask away!
