(New to water coolings Need advice) Case ANTEC 1100 with (1) 120MM rad and (2) 240mm Rads NO CASE MODDING

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello Every One,

So I am taking my first dive into water cooling. I have already begun to plan out my system and parts for the setup.
currently i am using a Antec 1100 case with a amd 965 overclocked to 4.4mhz with load temps of 40c . alot of people on here have said you can not fit 2 240mm rads inside the case but ive figured out a way to use the 200mm fan vent up top to my advantage to fit another 240mm rad.

what i want advice for is tubing management fan types and how to further water cool for best temps.

my set up will revolve around the swiftech H220 which uses a 240mm rad and i will be using a swiftech double thick 120mm rad and a swiftech double thick 240mm rad. 3/8in X 5/8in tubing and 3/8 x 5/8 black chrome compression fittings.

for now only my cpu will be water cooled and next month when i have the funds i will buy water blocks for my two 4gb evga nvidia GTX 680s currently running in SLI.

Futher down the road i plan on buying a aquarium water chiller to submerge 4 360mm rads inside a 50 gallon cooler thats being chilled by the water chiller instead of the chiller being directly linked to the water loop. no condensation that way.

The project will start tonight once i pick up my last compression fitting from microcenter tonight. Pictures will be posted as i make progress.

so i have finally finished installing the new watercooling system into my antec 1100 it was a pain in my arse to bleed the swiftech h220 cause of the built in rad res combo might upgrade later to instal gpu blocks and a new res in the drive bay. also as you can see in my pics i have also installed dryer vents from my a/c to my intake ports on my case. at full load my gpus go to about 38c and idle at 14c and at full load on my cpu my temps go to about 25-28c and idle at 15c. let me know what you guys think as i wanna further improve my system. also im thinking about upgrading my case to a corsair 900d soon

You get any condensation on you tubes/blocks? Most people wouldn't vent an air conditioner directly into a case.

No I dont get anything on the tube or blocks. the a/c unit doesnt get the system cold enough to cause condensation. only time i ever see anything similar to condensation is when im physically in front of the case looking into the window and breathing on the window and i get that small fog where i breathed onto. also i have another a/c in my room cooling down the room itself so my system stays the same temp as my room itself.

also my top 240mm rad pulls air out and other 4 fans at the front of the case pull air out. so the cold air doesnt have much time to stay inside my case as it passes thru all my rads and out the case quickly. no time for condensation to build up. so basically air is come in from the rear and side and being exausted quickly from 3000rom fans up top and up front.. im not looking for a quiet pc as i also have my astro A40s on. im looking for performance trying to get my cpu amd p65 be from 3.4 to at least 4.6 currently at 4.1 with load temps at 25c-28c stable.

I'd be more worried about condensation forming on your block or even the tubing and dripping onto your gpu than your side panel.

Condensation will only form when the system temp is lower then the outside temp. but my room and computer are also at the same temp. and i also have a dehumidifier on the other side of the comp. and i have a sheet of very thin plexiglass across the top of my top gpu just in case condensation ever arises so if it does form and drip it just drops onto the glass
