IN WIN "Frames" Thread - Page 27

post #261 of 352
Well, the XSPC Radstand V2 fits! Not exactly in the way I expected, but through the extra small holes drilled between slots. The distance puts it more or less exactly on the lower bar in the center, though there are 2 sets of holes, potentially allowing it to be placed maybe 1/2" up. It will only fit in the center but that's fine - I expect the rad to sit almost directly on the bottom anyway and this is really just to keep everything steady. I fastened a spare fan to double check the spacing, but it's all good and tight. Even has a little bit of space between the backplate and fan/rad to allow for the screws. I took some photos. Don't mind my notes, I popped a piece of cardboard in there with the MB dimensions to give myself a better idea of what to expect.

Jokerfish, do you think the XSPC Radstand V2 will fit in my setup ? i really think buying one and it looks like very good for the bottom rad.

DigitalFOXX, yes for temporary use, i'm so scare to move the case now biggrin.gif

I'm sure you could fit it into any D-Frame, but there are a few things to be aware of. It doesn't fit exactly centered in the middle fan space like the factory setup would, and It will only fit 2 of the holes on the radiator or one fan (other 2 could be screwed directly into the rad.) I added some extra fans so you could get a better idea of how a 3x120mm radiator would sit. Also notice that you may be able to see the black bracket over the top of the radiator. This may matter to you, maybe not. It wouldn't bother me. You could always saw a few mm off the top of the bracket. I don't want to mod my case with extra holes, which is why I wanted to find a bracket that fits. I planned on the bottom rail taking the weight of the rad but the bracket is mostly to stop anything from sliding.

So if you're happy with the spacing and the possibility that you may see the bracket, it may be worth picking it up. They're fairly cheap. Just make sure you get the V2 version, the original does not have the small holes.

Actually, looking at your photos, it may be tricky getting it bolted on. Your rad looks like a 45mm thick rad? You may need to pull the rad to bolt it onto the bracket first, OR take the bottom rail off of your case (lay it flat, remove the pins, and slide it out) and bolt the rad from underneath after putting the bracket on first. It may be a bit of a puzzle. I was planning on a 30mm rad which would clear the screws but a 45mm may not. Then again, it may just look larger in the photo.

Thanks for the input i have just order on watercoolinguk.co.uk the xspc radstand v2 and 2 liter of EK-Ekoolant UV BLUE (to drain everything and have a clean loop). I'm using a EK-CoolStream PE 360 (400 x 130 x 38mm (L x W x H)) so i should be fine with the 38mm height (finger crossed).

For now il will try to not move the case and keep my bubble air until the rad is well fixed.

I will let you know when i receive it !

meanwhile this is what i have IDLE after 10 min



Edit: Your fans are using molex connectors... is it strange or just me ?
Edit#2 : Ho nevermind, you're using an adapter biggrin.gif

By my measurements I was short of clearing the bottom of the HDD case by maybe 2-3mm so at 38mm you should be fine. Those fans came with a Cooler Master case I bought last year and I didn't even try to use them. I hadn't noticed they were molex. Good eye.

So it doesn't fit exactly in the holes with the radstand. Did you make any new hole on the radstand ?
I had to use a lot of those to keep the rad well maintain.

I'm just gonna let it that way for now, i've been doing this for too long and i want to enjoy my games smile.gif

I followed the instructions pretty closely. Didn't do the optional step of installing the sponge in the pump? Could that be the cause?

The parts are:

Asus Maximus VII Impact
i7 4790k
Asus Titan X with EKWB
EK D240 Kit with bigger radiator


I know this is super late but this made me laugh!

you must be new to watercooling smile.gif

the noise is the pump getting dry, it is not meant to be used that way only the way you have it mounted

the pump will get damaged really really fast any other way

btw im part of this club now yay... smile.gif
