Water cool rackmount Case?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am looking into rack mount server cases for water cooling purposes.

I am thinking the Logisys CS4803BK would be able to house a thin 360 rad like an Alphacool ST30 and a Monsoon bay res.

My question is does anyone know if that bracket in the middle of the case would allow me to mount a 360 rad to it?

I am thinking of condensing several computers into a rack server and I don't want loud fans like most rack mount cases use. So water is the best way I could think of to make it quiet.

Any other opinions or suggestions about water cooling a server case are welcome and appreciated.

Gonna update this thread a bit.

I just purchased the case I specified in the first post. When I receive it I will confirm if I can get a full 360mm rad in the case. I am hoping at the minimum that I can get a 240mm in there of there is not enough space for the side where the fittings would go on the rad.

I am also planning on going with the XSPC res and pump. Just trying to keep it cheap since I will only be cooling the cpu.

So, parts list that's planned so far.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16816133039 - 15U rack - I also ordered one set of rails specific to this rack from another source.

http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=59_367&products_id=36102 - Res/pump

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811148063 - case

I have an Alphacool XT45 240mm laying here that I will see if it will fit. I should be able to see if it is too thick and make a judgment if I need to go to the ST30 rad. I should also hopefully be able to tell if I can get a 360mm rad into the case. If I don't think I can I will stay with the 240mm.

I really don't have much experience with server racks and cases. But, the dimensions seem to be tight on the case and rack. I am hoping the case will fit in the rack. And then hoping the rad fits in the case.

I will update when I receive the items.
