Well I got a lot of water cooling stuff laying around. I sold a lot of it the past few weeks but I have so much left over it is ridiculous. So I was thinking what if I just install it all into my case? Problem is this case was designed for a single 3x120 and maybe an extra rad somewhere...

For certain I am going to install a 9x120 mo-ra 3 core on the right side panel and I already have a Black Ice GTX 480 extreme up top. Laying around is: RS240, GTX 120, Koolance 140, and Swiftech 2x120 pump/res/rad.

So...

Top of case: GTX 480 Extreme
Back of case: GTX 120 or Koolance 140
5.25 drive bay: whichever of the singles isn't in the back.
Bottom of case: Swiftech 2x120 or RS240.
Side of case: Mo-Ra 3 Core 9x120 (maybe without fans or with just 2 AP181s).

Hopefully all of this and 1 GPU block and the lowest restriction water block will run off of a single MCP-35x... if not I extra DDC pumps and a D5 bay reservoir that I could grab a D5 strong and sell all my other pumps.

My only issue of right now is

How do I get 4 stand-offs to support the mo-ra 3 9x120 radiator without ripping holes in or bending the side panel. I think I am going to test fit this all without the 9x120 first.

I will post pictures once the work begins!

First step!!! relocating everything into my spare chasis!
