Awesome, you rock! I was planning on mounting it on the top. I didn't want to mount it directly over the motherboard unless I have to. So really anywhere I can stretch the tubes along the top suits me fine. I'm just trying to hold myself over for 6 months or so until I have time to do my first custom loop.

If its the one i saw online it has standard fitting for the cpu block so all you need is the tube size and order more tubing. from what i saw you could mount it above your video cards with the lines to the back and make your Cpu but i have no measurement of the lines so i cant be 100% sure.

But because you can change the tubing just get longer tubing and put it where you want thumb.gif

I know I can change the tubing but to be completely honest, I'm trying to baby step my way into water cooling and I'm slightly worried about extending my tubing right off the bat. I was hoping to avoid adding tubing until I've had it running for a few months and I'm ready to add a few more pieces.
I found this on a review site, which I think should be plenty of room for anywhere mounted on the top (I hope)?

From the top of the CPU water block is where this tape measure starts, and as we stretched out he clear PVC tubing, we found that Swiftech provides slightly more than 15" of length here.

my blue and white system was my first ever watercooled pc. its easy but read read read and read more watch videos and read reviews and you will be okies.

From the back of the x9 case to front edge of mb tray is 13 inches. From the front of the x9 to the front edge of mb tray is 9 1/2 inches( rough measurements cause i cant find my good tape BLEH)

From the top of the frame down to the mb is about 10 1/4 inches. Figure standard atx width across

Mounting it above the MB above the CPU might be the best bet. You might get away with mounting it on the left side then running it up along the side or thru the grommets to the CPU but that might not work and would mean moving the PSU to the right side.

As for extending the tubing thats easy cause it has compression fittings but i know where you are comming from.

If there is any more i can do let me know.

PS i had the comp running while measuring so if you need accurate measurements let me know i will find the good tape and shut it down

Good luck

Matt

Wow, thanks! Those measurements are exactly what I was looking for! You've also encouraged me to go ahead and buy some tubing and extend the tubes if I need to. I've been building PCs for a LONG time (close to 20 years) and always been intimated by water cooling so it's time I try to start pushing my comfort levels.

No problem If you need any more help just ask here or in the water cooling thread. There are plenty of people willing to help.

Never be afraid of water cooling Just be cautious thumb.gif

Hey guys, anyone know if you can fit two 200mm fans at the front if you remove the drive bays? I know there is room for one but can you stack two? In the core x2.

Yes you can fit two, but it takes a little dremel work to fit a normal thickness 200mm.
