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 :
- GTX 780Ti
- asus Z87 Sabertooth (may be changed if impractical)
- corsair RM750 PSU mounted fan down
- 1x intel 520 series 240GB
-1x WB black
