All these rigid tubing builds have me a little jealous. I may have to go that route soon.

Id love to go rigid but i find it a pita that if you need to do anything at all youd have to completely drain it. For example, i can take my water block off the cpu (for wtv reason if need be) without draining the loop. Same goes for my gpu.

I know especially since I'm using quick disconnects.

So as you can see I have the Core X1. The case will not fit a 180mm radiator in the front, even through it stated in the manual. The screw holes will not line up with 180mm radiator.
As for 80mm thick radiators, it will not fit on the top without hitting the GPU. In my build I have the EK-CoolStream XE 360, which is 60mm thick. It's just barely not touching the GTX 980's waterblock.
I hope the information was helpful. Good luck on your build!

thanks! i'll keep that in mind maybe i'll go 360 60mm in the top and 240 60mm in the front

Use to work at a glass manufacturing plant EONS ago... I use to take home gold and silver plated test panels for free, since all we do is destroy and recycle them. Still worth a pretty penny, but not many people would have used them. Hmmm I actually do have a few test panels collecting dust someplace. lol, what luck.




.
On another note, just not fond of the Thermaltak X series with the mainboard laying flat or directly below a rad.

Thanks smile.gif. It is not as tidy as it used to be before I started testing and benchmarking a lot. The Icy Box MB996SP-6SB Tougharmor 6-bay SSD tray helps to reduce the number of cables.

Hi all, i'm new here, and got my x9 last friday, so i'm joining the club.

Great to see so many posting their builds, and serving as inspiration for others.

I'm going to do an update on my watercooling, and have been looking around for the ideal case for quite some time, but the x9 took the win, over cases like cl & mm.

I find that the X9 has all the space that the others lack, and after recieving it, i'm still a happy bunny :-)


First thing is the wheels (link to danish wheel provider)


Then i throw in some HWL GTS 420, and have an Aqua computer 420 also in my old rig, that will go to the lower compartment.


Add some noctua fans


Changed the HD drivecase with one from my old nanoxia, to save some space. Plan is that pump goes next to drivecase. Might have to lover the drivecase...but lets see when watertank comes.


Cut and installed mid plate (protective film still on) its a 6mm polycarbonate plate, and i'm going to cover it with some Mirror-Chrome-Vinyl-Wrap in black. I will use the same wrap on mb-tray.

Thats all i have for now, as im waiting on both watertank, and some acrylic to make front plate, as i'm not going to use the drive bays. this way i can hide the cables from top rads, and possibly also have some intake, but haven't quite made up my mind about that, so lets see what i come up with.

Watertank goes horisontal on topplate, and with pump in lower section, i have to run a bit untraditional routing to keep the hoses from passing from upper to lower section more than 2. times. Routing will then be watertank -> pump -> lower rad -> cpu -> gpu -> upper rads -> watertank.


Made some stealthy passthrughs.


Starting on front wall.

08-06-16


Slowly getting closer, still need res. but good news from supplyer, they finally got to europe from USA, så just ordered one today :-). Still waiting for the wrap, and a piece of polycarbonate that my plexi guy forgot to send in last shipment. If im lucky wrapp will turn up sometime in next week :-)

09-06-16

Finally got the last piece for my frontwall and just finished test fitting it all, and it looks and fit great, also res. shipped from Netherland today, so should be in Denmark by monday :-)


Ready for car wrap :-)

only thing needed now is res.

Car wrap should be here next week if im lucky

15-06-16


Res. all done and ready to get mounted, will do without raiser as my inlet to pump is low

16-06-16


Weeeee Car wrap turned up - looking sharp


It's a wrap :-) - next thing is waiting for some 90 de. fittings, then move system, should be here tomorrow.

20-06-16


Engine room with pump and the 420 from aqua computer.


Starting to look like a pc,


view from other side


Front with pwm hub for the top rads.

Now i only need light for the ress, wich of cause broke during transport, so should be getting a new one by tomorrow. Then it should be ready for some leek testing.

21-06-16


Finally i have startet leak testing, so guess i will finally have my pc back at some time tonight :-)


Up and running :-)


Will post some more pictures tomorrow

22-06-16


Not to happy about the light, got a revoltec RED katode kit, but it's far from red, rather light pink at most.


So gonna get some rgb leds and stuff in tank instead, and control it with the AC farbwerk.
apart from the rather poor threads in the case and missing customer service from TT (No spareparts in Europe) i'm sattisfyed with the result.

Would i do it again ?, probably not, i think next time im gonna build a case from wood, so i wont miss any parts, and get every thing as i want.

2016-08-30 - Got a few changes made since i was last here :

Hello guys.
I just received my X71 and I would like to ask you where do you buy those "middle" plates made out of plastic(?) ?
Ebay? Pls link. The best would be ebay.co.uk link smile.gif
Thanks!
