Looking real good man. I was also planning on doing a scratch case for my next build with 480 rads in mind. I will keeping a close eye on your project. Terrific work.

WOW!

I'm just speechless man.

Thank you.

Now since you are here, can I borrow some of the awesomeness on your MOTM Winner for this build tongue.gif ? I loved what you brought into the mix. Great talent man. I was awed first time I saw your build way back June. thumb.gif

Thanks, that won't be a problem. I'll love to see how you would apply some of what I did to your build. When you get to that point just PM me if you need any help.

"four 360mm thick radiators". WOW, I've never seen radiators that thick in a computer. And I thought 80 mil was thick.
** Just kidding, I know what you meant. How thick are your radiators?
Good job so far. As much pride as you're putting into it, I know it will turn out great.

lol @Luke Cool tongue.gif

Got an RX 360, a Phobya 360 V2, and an Alphacool XT 480 at hand ATM.

Will probably trade my XT after hearing some issues with it. My brother is building on my Lian Li PC70 and interested about getting the rad for a little cheaper to match his BlackIce 360. lol

Might be picking a couple GTX 480s for the top rads. smile.gif

So sad I can't squeeze out enough time to work on the case. Office requires me to work on the weekends for scheduled renovations and a bigger space for growing. smile.gif all for the good.

This is a great article that I found. Read it before you buy anything. Not all rads are created equal.

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/23356/ex-rad-679/Alphacool_NexXxoS_Monsta_Triple_180mm_Radiator.html?tl=g30c95s1552

An Alphacool NexXxoS Monsta Triple 180mm Radiator will do close to the same (if not a lot more) work as many 3 and 4 radiator systems.
It's Dimensions (585 x 182 x 85mm) are huge, so I almost would have to make a custom case for it to go into.
It's 85 mil thick. It would almost a sham to cover it up or hide it.
This is what a custom case is about, doing things that you can't do in a store bought case.
Three 180mm fans do not have to be used, six to eight 120mm fans would do nicely and look cool.
Simplicity is less problematic.

Take your time on your build, delays are sometimes a blessing, you will be happier with the results.

have to check that out if Bundy updated his database.

I'm leaning towards performance primarily. Silence will/might be achievable with rad space. Looks, I'm trying. smile.gif

I'm very sure alphacools are great performers. But hover around the water cooling thread and you'll see what I mean about the issues inherent with them. I bought mine as a kit coz it's cheaper. The fans that come with the kit are big bonus. (can't buy them here. And would be used for girl's rig which I will do with a little less concentration towards performance)

The GTX rads are also no slouch. Scales pretty good with fan speed as well. Which will obviously mate well with my deltas. smile.gif

BlackIce are also available locally and are cheaper that ordering them from the US. (made in the Philippines as well tongue.gif) Well built and undeniably have the best finishes and all.

Alphacools need to be ordered from the US. So yeah.


Thanks for the info mate!

Building a rig surely is fun! smile.gif (just don't mention the cost with your partner) tongue.gif

Building a custom case is a notch better!

As @Luke Cool mentioned, things that you can't achieve with a pre-built unit can be had with a custom one. Though, Caselabs can pretty much cover most needs, they're just outta my reach logistically.

Fun comes along the planning, the learning, the building, interaction with our fellas here, and all.
