[Build Log] "OvrSghtX2" - 900D rebuild! Done.. for now! - Page 3

post #21 of 35
What about 20mm x 120mm fans on the Monsta. That would buy you the extra 5mm of spacing you need!

Yate has 3 different 20mm models that are fairly cheap with descent performance. Depending on how you arrange them... they would be out of sight form the build.

I used to run a push/pull on my 60mm monsta on the top of my old Phantom 820 by using those Cooler Master Slim 15mm thick fans. Worked like a charm.

I'd do the 2x XT45 and the 240 up front

This is exactly what I have decided to do. In fact they're already installed!

Good luck. I hope you can fit yours. Without slimmer fans I know there's no way I could have made them fit. Trust me I tried haha.

Thanks!

Nope. I only used push and it didn't work out. P/P would definitely not work in the top or bottom.

I thought about going with slimmer fans just to make it work, butI like the Corsair SP editions mainly for the colored rings. I don't think it's worth ordering a new set of fans just to add the Monsta even though it would be epic.

With slimmer fans I know it would be possible like I stated above. I'm looking forward to seeing someone put a Monsta up top.

Sorry for the overdue update, but between the long weekend and half the family getting sick I haven't had much time to post.

I was finally able to do some work on her yesterday even though I'm waiting for my last bit of fittings to come in. Looks like they should arrive tomorrow.

I decided to go with the 2x XT45 in the top and bottom and the 240 in the front.

With the top in p/p. NO clearence issues now!



Nice clean 1.25yr old CPU thumb.gif


The blocks installed and the basic tubing lines can be seen. I'm really kicking myself on not getting the GPU back plates when I could have. Definitely going on when I upgrade them at the end of year or sooner.






Some of the tubing installed:



And heres the second pump installed into the Koolance RP-452X2:


I actually have the fan controller and res/pump installed, but haven't taken any pictures of those yet. Tonight I will post some more pics to show how far a long I really am.

Love the Monsoon fittings but have you thought about going with clear tubing and dye/pastel?
post #26 of 35
Hey, I got my 900D Today and when you unscrew the HDD sled track in the front you have a lot of room and could you fit a Monsta 240 80mm in the front?

I thought to go with clear/pastel route, but since Ive read some horror stories with certain pastels dying parts and possibly clogging up blocks I haven't got to it yet. It takes slightly more maintenance and frankly I don't refresh my loop as often as I should. I do plan on upgrading GPUS relatively soon so I may look back into this option.

240 Monsta would definitely fit on the inside. This was another option I also thought about, but i like how you can basically ninja the st30 240 in the front. Again, I may look at this again in the near future.

Thanks! and I've been looking at some back plates, but don't know if it's worth me getting a couple now. I am planning on upgrading the GPUs when the 8k series come out. Once I get the comparisons with those and the green offerings I will more than likely pick up a pair (or tri) then. Definitely going with back plates on that future purchase.
