Draining a loop is overrated, just fill it up, run it for 2 years until you get bored with the build, tear it apart to use for parts, or sell it. biggrin.gif

Thinking of replacing my Cosmos II with the Core X9 case for the Uber Rig. What do you guys think? 4-Way SLI Titan X air-cooled.

How is the SSD/HDD space in this case? Meaning, what kind of (and how many) brackets do you get with the X9?

Even if you only expect to have to drain it once, after 2 years of use, . . . . given how easy it is to add a decent drain setup in the first place,

I can't imagine building a loop without one.

I think it's just plain stupid, . . . . sorry, but that's as charitable a word as I can think of.

Given the generous amount of watercooling capability this case allows for, I can't for an instant, imagine any reason not to enthusiastically employ every bit of it.

Why spend that much money on a system only to castrate it from the get-go.

Finally got some time to sit down and do a rough model of how I am planning on setting up the upper section (the midtray.) It would be done in either 1/8" or 1/4" black acrylic. Any thoughts or pointers? It will sit about an inch from the front of the chassis so I can run cabling along the front. The lower hole in the front is for a 140 intake fan to move air along the top section.











Darlene,
What kind of fittings are you using to pass-thru the mid-tray?

It's easy to agree with Diva. In the x9 there's so much real estate to work with that it's a criminal waste to think of using only air cooling.

The stock x9 comes with two 3-drive cages; there's also a 2-drive SSD bracket under the motherboard, for a total of 8 drive mounts.

EDIT: You can fit a third 3-drive cage if you can obtain one from Thermaltake (or someone here) for a total of 11 drives. However you would need a 3rd mounting bracket too. Only the Snow (white) version of the x9 comes with 3 mounting brackets.

Nice braided cables how did you get them to curve like that smile.gif
post #2069 of 4110
Thanks

I think the guy who made them used mdpc sleeving and the wires are of different lengths (top row vs bottom row) so they curve nicely. They feel like actual wire that you cand bend to the desired shape and it just holds it.

First mod finally done. Here are the side panels with the half window/mesh completed. Need to be cleaned up a little bit.






Next is to get the black acrylic for the inside midtray.
