Working on a build that involves a rehoused Lenovo workstation motherboard. This MoBo is so ridiculous it makes an x9 look normal

Hello everyone I’m thinking of getting an X5 or x9 as a case transfer. My closed loop cooler went up recently and I replaced it with a Phanteks air cooler which just barely fits in my Chaser case and not in the preferred orientation so hence the desire for a better case.

My question is with the amount of fans these cases can support (I have 5 on my chaser and 6 headers on my Mobo) how do you go about connecting them? I plan on having 10-12 so I’m wondering do you need multiple fan hubs or 5.25 fan controllers? How do you all have them set up (those that have a lot of fans that is)?

With what I have in my system and what I’d likely add in the next few years and X2 would probably be big enough except it can’t fit an ATX mobo. My only reason for considering the X9 is that its $38 cheaper than the X5 ATM with MIR. Although I'd have to buy an additional mounting bracket for the visible side mount fans since I'd be using one of the HDD cages so in the end the pricing would be more like $15 cheaper after shipping.

X9 13 fans and 7 gpus

It looks like it's just an 12"x13"? Pretty standard dual socket design.

haha I wish, it's a 12.25" x 14.01", the end actually hangs over the back of the motherboard tray a little

Eh whats an inch here or there tongue.gif Does it at least have standard mounting holes?
post #3097 of 4110
Half the mounting holes are standard so I did some ghetto rigging to support it. Unfortunately that board literally just died so time to explorer other options

90° Fittings with tubing between.



EDIT: Yes, I've cleaned it after the photo.

Ricecar nailed it! That's exactly how I did mine except I used 90 degrees with barb ends and clamps.

Starting to plan out stuff to inside it, got my CPU/GPU block, pump and res sorted. Still trying to source the Rad's I'm after, but every where seems to be out of stock. Also I forgot how damn expensive fittings are 8-(

Can anyone post photos of how they have linked two Radiators together at the top of the case, I'm thinking to 90 degree fittings and an extender between them?

Here's a couple shots of how I did mine using 45 degree fittings and an extender.
