Hey guys, I'm planning to watercool my build and I need some advice.
In my rig at the moment there is one HDD and one SSD, both in the hdd cage. Both 5.25" bays are free. So I have a i5 4690K and this would be the first component to be watercooled, since my 960 (EVGA 04G-P4-3967-KR) doesn't have a full cover waterblock (right?) and anyway wouldn't need watercooling that much I'd say.
I'm planning to put in the case a 2x120mm radiator, cpu waterblock, pump and reservoir. No gimmicks. Now I have some options:
(*) Radiator on top, 1 bay pump-resevoir combo (I heard they are difficult to bleed and fill?), hdd cage left were it is now.
(*) Radiator on top, pump and reservoir combo like EK-XRES 140 DDC or similar mounted on top of the hdd cage (will it fit there?)
(*) Radiator on top, pump and reservoir combo like EK-XRES 140 DDC or similar mounted on the floor of the cage or against the front fans (are there holes for a ek 120mm fan to 50mmx50mm adapter?)
(*)Radiator at the front, single bay pump+reservoir combo and hdd + ssd in the other bay with an adapter I already have...
What do you think is the best solution? I generally like ekwb for the design of block and stuff, but I'm open to alternatives..
