'Course it should work... it's just....*shudder*

Radiators are rarely the restricting factor; actually, unless you go for a Feser Admiral, they are the least restrictive in a loop.
Most of the time, its the fittings doing you in. One fitting by itself is not an issue.. a handful of them starts to add up to a bottleneck.. Sometimes the amount of fittings combined adds up to more restriction as the most restrictive part in a loop.. which most of the time is the CPU waterblock - by design.

In your case, i'ld worry about two things: the small bore hose & fittings.. and you might need a lot if daisy chaining it all together
And the other thing is that AIO pumps have an average life expectancy of "duration of Warranty + one day". You may get lucky and they run for another year, but you shouldn't be surprised if they give up the ghost within days.

But yeah, it should work smile.gif

If the pumps are unreliable then I would be tempted to put everything into one linear loop.
This will give you the best water temperature, and redundancy on the pumps.

Putting the restrictive rads in parallel may give a marginal flow rate boost.

Nothing wrong with plastic barbs rather than expensive compression fittings, and they are much cheaper.

Thanks a lot guys. Good information. I'll let you know how it works out. +1 to you both. smile.gif

Another guy on here did this too, but he had to mod the front panel to get it to fit. So that's what you'll have to do likely. He didn't say what exactly he cut off though, likely depends each fan being used I imagine.

My nzxt 200 fit without problems and i can close the panel fine. I removed all the cdrom bays though if that counts for anything.

you might be talking about me. I don't think you can fit (2) 200mm fans, I moved (1) to the front top (picture on post #1283)
You have to just start cutting any thing that keeps the front from closing up.
I used the blue tape so I could draw an 8" circle.

I also have another unfinished picture on (post #1473)

Finished (post # 2022)

Thanks so you have 2x 200mm fans in the front?

Strange that Ther,altake say the front will take 2 x 200mm fans

Fan Compatibility List
120mm 140mm 200mm
Front 3 2 2

Yes. I can take the front panel off later and look carefully if something is broken on it, so that's why it fits. But I didn't break / cut anything on it myself.

I'd have been majorly pissed off if I could not get the 200m mounted top-front. Would've left me with no intake over the motherboard and componenets, that's messed up. Maybe only specific 200mm fans don't fit though?





From the pics it looks like the nzxt is a "slimmer" fan vs the stock thermaltake one. Might be an optical illusion though.
