I just am easily able to get to my res to fill but some people like having it. It's up to you. I use Pastel coolant by mayhem it needs to be changed about once every 2-3 years. Water I would change at least once a year.

So if I get the EX240 rad and place this at the bottom, I could attach a piece of spare tubing, say 4 inches to one of the spare holes in the rad and use it like that as a drain? And where is considered best as a fill port on a tube res setup? the top of the res itself I'm guessing? I don't really want to be getting into drilling holes in the case, although that would be much easier. Do people haver taps at the back/sides of their cases?

With that said, PSU air flow should pretty much not be looked as an approach since PSU fans barely spin. For my PSU, I have it's intake fan inside (user preference) mainly to create a "filter" for the air that does go in to the PSU (less dust in PSU).
  • As for the top setup, I would consider all intake and placing the H60 as one of them (adding that 3rd top fan also). Having H60 as intake will guarantee cool air for CPU cooling (not sure if H60 is built as exhaust only). This will also further prevent the top from recycling it's own air (exhaust getting sucked back in by that front top intake).
  • The back fan would be an exhaust and that will guarantee positive pressure. Front and bottom look good to ensure your GPUs getting fresh air and exhausted through the card's exhaust.
  • Another reason for having more in is the air will escape through cracks and as discussed before, if you plan on leaving front panel alone, the front fans take a hit in effectiveness due to the restricted intake of it.

If you follow the basic case rule of more positive pressure than negative (more air going in), then dust should not be an issue. For me, the top filter that came with the case is fine, but there are "after market" filter systems that can add more filtration if needed. JamaicanReaper and a couple others had posted them before.

@JamaicanReaper: Maybe something else worth adding to Original Post (the aftermarket filter kit)?

Thanks for the reply, I will look into it. I was concerned about the top fans being next to each other and hot air circulating in and out etc.

H60 can go either way - I thought it was better to exhaust through the radiator as otherwise you are getting warm air onto the mother board if you suck it in?

thanks again.

I need help deciding how to set up my WC configuration in a new 750D. This is going to be my first full water cooling rig so please give constructive criticism if any of my choices don't make sense. I have heard that it is nearly impossible to get the radiator to fit with the MB since the 85mm clearance at the top of the case is cutting it really close to the 8 pin power connector and any fan connectors on the top of the motherboard. I just want to know if its possible and at all practical to squeeze in a motherboard with 4 fan connectors at the top with my 60mm rad config.(parts list below). And I would like to know if there will be any major problems with doing this setup. Before you tell me that the specs say it's possible, I already know what all the specs say, I am asking for the opinions and thoughts from people that have actually built a system like this with a crammed upper portion and some fan connectors at the top of the motherboard. Again I am new so modding is really not a preferred option. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR ANYONE KIND ENOUGH TO HELP AND THANK YOU FOR READING THIS MUCH OF MY RAMBLING

Some pictures will be included to show what i mean by close clearance of the radiator and the motherboard.(although i could not find examples with the Z87 Sabertooth.... you get the idea...its close, but is it too close to work with without modding?) Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


I'm trying to use :

SYSTEM Parts--

CPU-
-intel 4770k
Graphics-
- GTX 780Ti
MB
- asus Z87 Sabertooth (may be changed if impractical)
PSU
- corsair RM750 PSU mounted fan down
HDD/SSD
- 1x intel 520 series 240GB
-1x WB black

WATER COOLING Parts--

Rads
- AlphaCool NexXxoS 360mmx60mm intake pull in the top
^^ Is this possible with a MB that has 4 fan connectors and 8-pin CPU connector on the top? if not...then suggestions?
- AlphaCool NexXxoS 280mmx60mm intake pull in the front.
Pump-
Swiftech mcp655
Reservoir-
- Phobya balancer 150 matte black
CPU block-
- Koolance 380i for intel
VGA block
- Koolance NXTTN2
Tubing
- PrimoChill PrimoFlex Advanced LRT Tubing 3/8"ID x 5/8" OD (color TBD)
Compression fittings
- Koolance 3/8"ID x 5/8" OD compression fittings (yes i know i don't have any angled fittings.)

I have already read the first page, but it did not show an example nor did it tell me if there might be any problems with mounting a board like that with such little clearance for an 85mm radiator solution at the top. All it says is that it is possible to mount a 360mm rad up top.

All you have to do is offset the 60mm rad closer to the windowed side of the case....

Warm air to the motherboard is not as important as keeping your CPU cooled off. With all the amount of fans set up as intake, the MB will be fine temp wise, however, in order to ensure that your radiator is getting cooled off properly it's best to just set the H60 as an intake to get "fresh, clean" air to the rad vice using the air in the case that could be warmed by the GPUs. After all, your rig won't be colder than the temperature that your room is in (unless using dry ice for cooling or have an A.C. pointing inside, then you will have to worry about possible condensation build-up). biggrin.gif
