Thinking of going with custom loop - Page 2

post #11 of 16
If money "aint no thang"....

Id recommend starting fresh with a new case....One that was designed with w/c in mind. this would be my top 3 if i were to do a mid lvl loop right now....\


#3 Corsair 759D

#2 Tt Urban T81

#1 NZXT H440 (Black&Red)
http://www.nzxt.com/product/detail/143-h440-performance-mid-tower.html (neweggs out of stock)

after that XSPC is an ok kit, (great cpu block) really good gpu blocks too!!! not a fan of their res/pumps tho...Their D5 Photon pump/res is AWESOME

as far as fittings go, just go with what you like for looks...(as long as its rotary, they'll save a lot of headaches)

It definitely is waaaay more satisfying if you piece together your own kit....the research is half the fun

Ha!

If you want to get a water cooling rig, buy a Caselabs dude.
Best water cooling rig you.can buy.
But pricey.
My STH10 cost me over 1200$ after paint, shipping, and accessories.
But since than, the Merlin line came out, for more affordability.

Problem is I want a mid case not a full size due to space. The nzxt case is nice but hate colored cases. Hence the 500r in the first place. Not worried about space really I can get it to work without to much headache. But thanks for the suggestions.

If I decided to do my case in the basement then I will go full size for sure but then it will be a 900d. But the wiring will be a nightmare well maybe not but location is the issue with a system not next to me

Understood both locations push out of the case they are all my vent fans.

if you dont mind taking a dremel to your case, the 500r is a great mid tower than will hold a 360 in the top and a 240 in the front.. a 280 will fit in the front with somewhat heavy modding and will also fit in the top with a small bit of cutting and drilling. you can fit push/pull in both the front and top. in the front with no problems and in the top with a wee bit of modding. there is no point in buying a new case unless you dont want to cut it up.

how do you put your pc in the basement and use it when youre not there?

Yea I was looking at it ya last night and was looking at my options as Dar as cutting it up. S I really do like my 500r case it's size is perfect and let's just say I am handy with a Dremel.
