Upgrading watercooling - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Im not familiar with your case, or with the one you suggest.
An other option to throw out there for you is this bracket, which would allow you to bolt a 240, or 360, or even possibly a 480 at the back of your case.
An added benefit of that bracket is that an external rad will perform much better than an internal one.
And it would be cheaper than buying a whole new case.

I made my loop into the Zalman Z11 Plus (mid case, not watercooling prepared) and it looked like this:


I know, with more time on it i would made it looking better but at the time I made it I was injury in my knee but I like it anyway thumb.gif
It looks like it wouldn't fit with both the radiator and the fans inside the case. Julsmba installed his radiator externally and the fans internally. If you get an AIO unit then you really can't do that without modding the top of the case a little bit. But if you put the radiator on the inside and the fans on the outside of the case, it would probably work as long as the radiator isn't too thick, probably 35mm max since those 25mm thick fans are quite close to the motherboard.

What case will have enough space top or back for 240?

Pretty much any "enthusiast" case. Just make sure you buy the right case the first time so you arn't looking to buy a bigger one six months from now because you want more than that single 240. It WILL happen.

I don't know your budget but the corsair 350D/650D/800D/900D are very popular and cater to the water cooling crowd pretty well. If you got money to spend then you might want to look at the stuff caselabs makes.

actually the 750d will hold a 360 or 420 up top. the front will take a 240 or 280. if you use a 240 up front it will take a 240 in the bottom.
all of this without modding. also about $150 usd

Well, my vote goes to the Cadelabs Merlins series. And my vote counts for two, while your vote doesn't count at all since you didnt vote for Caselabs, so there. *snort*
