It does look very nice, like it's part of the case meant to be like that. Are you exhausting out the bottom of your case?

I couldn't run my rig on something like that though because my bottom rad is intake and it would just suck up dust off the floor. Where I live it's dry and dusty year round. We run a heavy-duty (~$500) Rabbit Air purification system and it only helps slightly. It wouldn't matter how clean we try to keep the floors if I kept an open bottom on a case that close to the floor my rads would be completely clogged in days to where no air at all would pass through.

As it is even with computers kept up on a desktop, all my intakes filtered, and most of the fans as intakes for excessive positive pressure, I still have to blow every computer out once a month or so with the air compressor and even doing it that often sometimes my air-cooler heatsinks are nearly completely blocked up. Every single time when I first hit a case with air the first words out of my mouth and anyone else who is watching is always 'Oh my God!' as the huge dust cloud escapes. I'm always amazed at how much dust accumulates and that I've somehow as yet managed to not have any component overheating/failure due to it all.

Wow, you must have quite a lot of dust around your part of the world!

My FT02 had 3 180mm inakes in the floor, and the 3 filters did a great job of keeping dust out, even with having 2 cats.
I never had to clean anything out, but the case was on the carpeted floor rather than hard wood, so that might have helped

Thanks!

Bottom will be intake. Dust isn't much of a problem here.

I really need a better camera. This phone isn't doing it justice.

Finally starting to testfit inside the enthoo and the first thing i checked was if i could install anothe 360 rad in the middle.. And with a monsta and a xt45 spacing is perfect with two sets of fans inside, so looks like ill have to get two compressions extra thumb.gif

Wanted to throw this out there.....

In plant design, it's SOP to use flexible couplings at all pumps to take care of any alignment issues and isolate the pump's vibration from the rest of the system. We know this carries over to WC as peeps often hear the rattling in bay reservoirs. With the 35x2 being a bit of a behemoth, I had to design and have mounting adapter plate (being powder coated tomorrow) fabricated to hold the thing . So taking the wisdom of generations of plant design engineers before me, vibration isolation of the pump seems like it's worthy of attention when using rigid tuning......don't wanna shake anything loose do we now smile.gif

With the 280 Rad at the bottom being the first thing downstream of the pump, the "visible tube run" is about a 3 inches, about 1/2" inch of which will be visible between the Rad and the vertical plate w/ Phanteks logo on it. A 15mm fitting extender eliminates the visible part. It's the inlet that concerns me more as it's harder to hide. About a 6" horizontal run maybe 1.75" horizontal visible ... plus the vertical. I could do the vertical drop and 1st 2" in rigid and then use the flex, but with no support at the transition point, the whole run will vibrate.

Best idea I have had so far is to come outta back of res thru the res bracket (18mm hole req'd), and then 90 down thru the grommet, then 90 towards the pump and transition there. Any other ideas ?

BTW, just tested high temp / low flow alarm system using emergency lights and siren cannibalized of my "emergency response vehicle". Did it at 6 am and woke whole house up so it should serve well.

Actually that's a magnetic job that I just use when responding .... son borrowed car and I'm afraid to leave that in there ..... I can see him getting stuck in traffic and giving it a workout smile.gif ..... was sitting here on table while I type this and figured I'd have some fun and give ya'll a morning laugh

LOL! It worked. I could totally see you rigging your Enthoo system to your home security system so the whole neighborhood has to respond in case of an overheating issue. lmao
