I know someone here already working on alternate grille for the top .... gonna see how that turns out before moving forward up there.

Bottom is less critical for me as my 280 bottom rad fans get to steal air from the front fan intake which I assume gets sucked down thru the floor..... If you have a 480 down there tho....that ain't gonna happen so the performance of ya rad is prolly impacted as much or more than I'm experiencing on the top where I have the 420.

Anyone have pics of the bottom ? My case with 2 liters of water is so darn heavy ....wish I still had that glass table, Id set it down and take pics thru the glass smile.gif

Anything down there to attach case feet to ?

The sound of the AP-15's changes dramatically when I raise the case up lol. I knew they were restricted, my loop is such overkill though it will likely be fine. Here's the bottom:

i ripped out everything out of my old case yesterday. my orders havent arrived yet. got a 280 monsta and a 480 on the way in. gonna take a while though half europe. and now im just sitting here on my laptop watching pokemon for the nostalgi rolleyes.gif

Nice, you have the same rads as me apart from I have a 420 xt45 up top. I wanted to use all the same case fans, so they all had the same sound signatures and so one type of fan wouldn't annoy me more than the others

They say a pic worth 1000 words tho , from hanging here at OCN, I have found it to be 994.69 words on average smile.gif



My not rigid section (pimp vibration isolation) . Can't see under upper HD cage.

Ah yeah, I remember your build now, very nice! I'm guessing those are bitspower 90 degree fitting with threads both ends, and then some rigid acrylic adapters screwed into those?

If you need anyt help with caster base give me a holler. thumb.gif


Jack,

Did you check temps with top grill off with case both without spacers and spaced up an inch?

@bond32, mines on the floor and the front of the case is over a cow skin carpet, cant really do it any other way since space is a bit limited and i dont want the rig under the desk cause it would be right against my subwoofer rolleyes.gif when ill move into my own apartment ill be levitating the case on some cheap table and make some ventilation under it.

Dont got the nerves to place it on my desk either, 45 kilos is heavy

@JackNaylorPE, you could take off the bottom hdd rails from the cage you have installed if space is a little short there, thats what i did, but more for airflow and aesthetics

In the lower pic, that's a threaded BP 90 screwed into a BP compression fitting.

Res Outlet, Pump inlet and rad inlet all have 90s...the pump outlet is straight compression.

On the 1st photo all the components have 90s and C47's..... the bends out "in air" have a 90 with a C47 on one side and a C68 (female thd version of C47)on the other.

yes.... it's back in that thread ...... I got the 4.4C with the top off..... did that cause my 420 was dropping temps 0.9C and and 280 on bottom was dropping 1.3C which made absolutely no sense. So then with the top still off I tested again with the bottom raised and tho the delta across the lower rad didn't changed..... overall delta T (ambient to water) dropped 1.3C id idn't record so I will havew to find that thread to make sure smile.gif

Here ya go

I did have them off at one point ..... you gonna laugh is reason I put em back my wife has a habit of picking up things that are lying around and putting them "in a safe place". But then she can't remember where that is and I have to buy another. So if it fits, it went back in. smile.gif

My problem is I take stuff outta boxes.....I work on my workbench ..... which she likes to call "Dining Room table" and like if a holiday is coming up.... she needs to set table like a week ahead of time (That's not dust on the plate it's a condiment .... pepper maybe ?) so cleans off table 2 weeks a head of time....and I never see it again. Bought a Micro-torch and a can of Butane fuel.... Fuel gone...."put it away before kids got hold of it" (kids are 17, 21 and 24) .... bought 2 new ons today.

I also like to save all my boxes .... I still have all my component manufacturer's boxes..... most of which I fit inside case box (undocumented feature of Enthoo is it fits almost all ya boxes) but the newegg box that held the GFX cards which would have fit everything else .... gone .....the FCPU box that held 41200 worth of blocks and stuff ..... gone.....either one wuda fit rest of boxes.

Tossing around the idea of swapping my XSPC dual bay res for my tank res. Plan would be to mount the tank res at the bottom of the 5.25 bays in the bottom drive slot area. I have some foam so I would "decouple" the pump. What do you guys think? Right now, even though it's pretty quiet, the pump is rather annoying. I have it on the third setting and it's still audible over all else. I was thinking the tank reservoir might be quieter...

Downside would be the outlet would have to have a 90 degree fitting right at the pump outlet.
