Mounting a 360MM Radiator Outside the Top of My Case - Page 2

Yep, that was my idea! I wanted them all to be at the same speed. Thank you for your help.

I wouldnt buy the swiftech HD kit because its overpriced and the pump is mounted directly on the radiator with no res. Also the swiftech rads are underperforming compared to the others. What are you trying to cool? I would buy custom stuff and ake my own kit, it would probably cost as much and perform better in the long run. Get a 45-60mm 240mm rad, laing ddc, top/res combo, 10/13 compression fittings, a cpu block. Connect the two fans to a fan controller or use power splitter, or do what ever. If you are going the 360mm rad, do it proper, dont buy kits.

What do you mean no res? I can clearly see it in the picture attached to the left side of the rad.

But you do have a point, very overpriced considering this...

I got that kit recommendation form 4Ryan6, a retired moderator on TomsHardware, and also a CPUs Master. I doubt it is that bad, and there is a res on the rad. I don't want to have a bunch of orders from different places.
As you can see, my case with the H50 inside was a little cramped. Having the rad outside will be nice.

I am not sure what I will be purchasing yet. I will be keeping this case no matter what, and selling the H50 I had picked up for $40.

Get some 7/16 x 5/8 tubing, and your set. Comes with the pump in the res. Get these fan covers too for the top fans (bottom if you want)
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811998059
Then get 6x of these
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835200068

And you are still better off then getting that swiftech. Hell, you might even have enough left over (considering you would be getting 3 more fans for the swiftech) that you could change the case (sorry I still hate doing external rad setups. Too much can go wrong frown.gif )

I thought the D5 pumps were better.

Depends on who you ask. Honestly, I have no idea which pumps are good. Im very amateur when it comes to the real technical stuff with watercooling, ie: pumps. But I know rads and fans so good enough lol.
