External housing for 6 radiators and 3 pumps.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello all,

I am soon going to tear down my main rig and remove all the primary components such as mobo/cpu/ram/gpu/psu's and relocate them into a Mid to full size simplistic tower.

My plan is to remove all my current water cooling radiators and pumps and relocate them into a completely separate case / housing. The reason I am posting here is to get any recommendations as to which case may up to 2 "480' radiator's and a single pump. I understand I would need 3 of these cases but would figure out a way to have them side-by-side.

Again, the goal is to have (6) 480 Radiators and 3 pumps in total. This will be housed separate from my computer and only run tubing into the computer tower.

Your feedback is very much appreciated and thank you to all in advance who reply.

Not sure if this would fit your needs or not.. But the new Haf Stacker has unlimited external housing.

You are going to hit diminishing returns well before you make use of 24 x 120mm. Even for a quad gpu and dual xeons. This is well into the pointless overkill spectrum.

Unless you are going fanless maybe, but that would still be pretty pointless...

I am actually going to do tests with and without fans, as tested by another friend who is an Electrical Engineer with calibrated testing equipment.

The diminishing return aspect is not relevant for my intentions.

Have you seen the new Aquacomputer radiators
The airplex GIGANT series
The airplex GIGANT series is perfectly suited for fanless (and threrefore noiseless) operation, installation of fans will unleash its immense cooling capacity. One 170-180 mm fan can be installed into the top cover of the radiator as well as into the base, alternatively 140 mm fans can be installed directly in front of the fins using optonal fan rails (not included in delivery) to further increase the cooling capacity.
