[Build Log] NZXT H440 "Chaos II" - Page 6

post #51 of 175
This build is looking really good. I am glad you're a couple steps ahead of me on fitting it all together so I can see how you are doing.
I decided to make the plunge into a full water loop, the only thing I am having problems with is where and how to affix the pump/res. The only other full loop I have done was in a case with drive bays, so a dual bay pump/res combo took care of that.

I like the dual 360 rads. Makes it look full and impressive. And they look so cool in white. thumb.gif

Thanks.

you have several options for your pump if it's a ddc format and not the big 6xx pumps. You can hang it off your rad, you could side mount it near the bottom of the cage (it fits), or you could mount it via an L-bracket from the front of the case.

Just remember, direct mounting is very loud as the pump will resonate the case. I was originally planning on a velcro mount to the side of the cage cover near the bottom. Laying out the design is the fun part...just remember to consider where your plumbing is going to nee to be run and it will come together.

Then came the fitting into the case. As you can see (sorry for the bad photos but the gloss white really messes up the auto-focus) there isn't much room to spare, 2~3mm on top:



and 5~7 between the res and the psu cover:



All in all it was a good day and I hope to start the plumbing between the rads tomorrow.


im digging it
