If I put the 360 on the "spare PSU side", is there enough room for airflow? I see where there is a spot for 2 120 fans and holes, but not 3.

There is enough space to mount a 480 there, so if you do what I do, you still have enough space to mount a 360 monsta in push pull, and still keep a HDD bay. if you already have a bay res, I would just use that and save yourself the trouble.

The only question would be, where to mount it? I need 2 5.25" drive bays for components (optical drive and the Aquaero 6) and with the 480 in "push/pull", that will take up another bay ... leaving only 2.

I'm not sure I can mount a tube reservoir on the back part of the case, because I am using EVGA GTX 780 Classified video cards, and they are about 20mm taller than standard video cards.

But the Aquacomputer system is something to think about.

I wonder if I could lay it horizontal on stand-offs over top the RX240/360 radiator. thinking.gif

I guess I could.

I see you have the 880mL unit, can you tell me how tall/long the entire assembled unit is?

I'm thinking that the 450mL might fit on the RX240 radiator, and it would take the RX360 radiator to hold the 880mL one ... and not look funny.

Well, after thinking about it, I went ahead and pulled the trigger (pun intended) and ordered the Aquacomputer D5 pump, D5 pump adapter, 880mL reservoir w/nano coating, and a reservoir mount for stability of the upper part of the tube. Hopefully that all will be here Thursday.

That's it, I've got to stop buying stuff for awhile and focus on what I've already ordered. Thanks for all the input though. thumb.gif
We'll see about that biggrin.gif

I was trolling around some other peoples builds and ran across this ....




Yeah, it's a totally different case, but it gave me an idea that I had been toying with ... lining the inside of the case with either white (like this) or orange plexiglass. The problem with dark cases is that even with good lighting, the black usually ends up absorbing the light and you really can't see the nice components inside.

So I'm tempted to see about doing something like this to make the water cooling and black and orange components "pop" under light.

Only question is, should I go with white (to maximize the effect) or orange (to blend in with the color scheme)?

Candy Orange or a hot rod orange, actually a flat orange may work better.

White will work great as well but IMO that will prolly bring more things out then you might want .

Too true. White would look the best, but it would be VERY unforgiving.

US Plastics has the white, but not any orange (that I can find).

A rough guess would be that it will add another $100 to the cost of the build, and about 5 or 6 hours ... could be fun though. biggrin.gif

I guess I'll have to look into it more.


I just worry about using TOO much orange in the build. I mean I love @Hanoverfist build, "Electric Orange" and all, but I just don't want this to be a version of that.

ePlastics.com seems to have some 24" by 48" that are 1/8" thick for $31.40 a pop. The will even cut the sheets to the exact size you want for a small price. Not bad.

Or you could always go with a mirrored back:
