damn that mother is long 0_0 though it was supposed to be the size of a ITX motherboard? well.. hmm that cancels my plans for one of these and a H75 on my gpu tongue.gif

Yes, its a big cooler for a mitx system.... Ended up being way bigger than I hoped and I have more of less abandoned this idea.

But, I have some plans to still use it in a custom case idea.
Thoughts are to extend the hoses, the mount it at the top of a case blowing out the back... Cutting a hole in the top of the case so it draws outside air in and blows it right out the back.
Thinking I could do a case that's about 1 inch taller than the tu100 is and have a good solution.
(Think tu100, but gpu pushed down to the floor of the case and a little bit of space on the top to fit the cooler)

Really this cooler is too big for the tu100, but would fit like a glove in a tu200 or similar. The only things are the mounting solutions they have didn't work at all and I had to use spare parts laying around to make the cooler even fit right.


Edit:
Thinking about my custom case idea I put the cooler ontop of my case (since the panels are all off). And the cooler is like 1mm too wide to fit in the top of the case..... So, with a little hammering on the end caps I think this thing will fit in the top of the tu100... Then I just need to make a 1 inch space so the shell fits back on.

Edit again, I cut the hoses off and installed longer ones and a res. Once the system is fully bled, I'm going to install it on the motherboard again and test it on top of the case.

Now I just need to mod the shell to be about a inch taller so it all fits back together.





Edit:
So if I cut the front of the case right at the top of the odd bay, then raise it to the size of a nomal DVD drive, everything fits! Well, except the side panels won't cover the radiator... But, I think just putting mesh over that area will be fine.

Hey Ive been watching this forum since i got my tu100 and I'm just wondering if anyone has tried fitting the h75 for the GPU and the h5sf for the CPU in a single case or should i just start looking at a custom loop? Thanks.

Currently I am the only one who is attempting the h5 sf in this case (maybe the only one on this forum who even has the h5sf). So, you may have to stay tuned on what I figure out for the h5.

the h75 will infact fit in the case, and it would fit the gpu also with a mounting plate..

putting both the h75 and h5 sf will be a stretch for sure without some case mods like I have going in mine.

Now, depending on what gpu your planning to use and what cpu, you might be able to get away with just using the single 120mm radiator mounted to the front of the case (or 140mm if you removed the front fan mount inner structure (see heavy breather modded tu100))

But, running a non-overclocked i5 and a 960/950 should in theory work on a single 120mm radiator (this one, not from a AIO system)
post #126 of 149
I really dont think one could fit both, but worth a shot. but you do have to remove the inner pannel as ejohnson says, theres no way theres any room left for the H75 and a fan otherwise. i think however youd be better of doing a thick 140 rad and a pump-res combo for a cpu and gpu loop. smile.gif

Once I get my h5 figured all out, I might make limited run "conversion kit". That include cutting templates and hardware needed to make the h5 fit.

Thinking it would include rivets, required screws, extensions for front panel, grill cover that mounts to the rear, aswell as the mesh side covers (where the radiator is mounted). and then stick on vinyl cutting templates, there are 4 cuts that need to be made total, you need to cut the front panel at the dvd drive location, then you need to trim the dvd tray itself to allow the coolers fan to bolt down to the tray.
Since the cooler needs to be modded, I may also include a pre-modded cooler that just bolts right in.
-- cooler mods are adding longer hoses and a koolance 60mm x 80mm res (mounts to the front fan location) and making the radiator end caps 1mm shorter on each side (still figuring out how to do this part.

total cost to get this aio cooler to fit though is decently high.... looking at $80 for the cooler, $60ish for the res, then about $10-$20 in misc parts. Plus the coolant of your choice. I went with pastel orange, but have not installed the coolant yet, waiting for my new res and figuring out positions for the tubes to go to.

Ignore the wire clutter smile.gif

I picked up a bunch of aluminum angle bars to start building onto the stock chassis.... I have decided I am going to build this case with the tu100 inner structure and a custom outside

And...... scraped this idea....

After careful planning, buying parts and getting everything setup I read a thing online about watercooling your lan party computer and ran into a huge issue with the idea of having a water cooled tu100.... I cant bring it in my carry on in the a airplane.... 3oz of liquid is all thats allowed on a airplane and I dont want to drain the loop anytime it needs to go flying.

So, I could either check it in my big bag and watch it get tossed all over the place and possibly leak due to things moving around or even get stolen, or I could air cool and keep it by my side on the air plane.

So, back on the air cooled train! choo chooo!

Have you considered a more traditional closed loop AIO cooler for the CPU? A 120mm cooler would easily mount on the front. I think using the H5-SF would be tricky enough as is to put inside that case.
