Are you happy with those fans then? What to they measure in thickness?

I think it's a little far from what i idealized in my mind, but it's a start smile.gif

Very happy, they spin at +-1360rpm max, VERY QUIET, and are 120x120x20 in size.
In the pictures i didn't mounted the H140-X in the front because i now it fits smile.gif

Some products that i'd ordered arrived, and i made some tests to see how the rads would fit inside the case with the fans:

Wow that's a tight fit! I'm amazed you're able to cram 3 of the 120 rads in that case. The loop runs between all those rads will be crazy! I see you're using flex tube but have you thought about going with hardline acrylic? Will be interesting once you get your setup in place to see some temp results. Wondering how this 3x120mm will do compared to darron's 1x200mm. Keeping an eye on this one for sure thumb.gif

Thanks wink.gif
Actually it's going to be 3x120 + 140mm rad (the h140-x that is going to be mounted in the front).
I do not have experience with hardline tubes, but they would make a better look for the loop for sure.

Daaaauuummmm! That's even more insane that I had thought. The 3x120mm would have been a close equiv to a single 200mm but an additional 140mm is just nuts! biggrin.gif

The loops will be really hard with all the inlet/outlet ports you'll need to wire up for 4 rads. Hardlines will help keep things a bit cleaner. One thing I noted about this pic is that it might be really hard to get to the rad port at the top corner of the case:


Might need to go with some tight 90 degree fittings. Have you done some test fits with fittings in place or mocked up the tube runs yet? If you're able to do a somewhat clean tube run in such a small form factor, you would be a water cooling wizard! biggrin.gif

Yeah i did some tests and the normal 90º fittings won't fit in there, that's why i also ordered some compact 90º adaptor fittings + extensions to make almost straight line tubes connections.
I'll think about the hardline tubes option, but i'll need to study it because i really don't know anything about it (just awesome pictures from another builds).

I did some drafts of what will be 2 Side Panels to this casemod. The first is a mirror surface and have a hole in the center, and 4 holes in the corners for fixing. The second is a transparent surface, have 3 cutouts ( 2 trapezium and a " V " in the center, to help air vent the case), and 4 holes at the corners for attachment .
Oh, and it's not in scale rolleyes.gif

@Darron What hole size (in mm) do you recommend for the corners to fix this side panels?

I had some nice M4 bolts with hex holes (for Allen keys), so I made threadded M4 holes -> 4mm diameter.

You could use 3M as well. 5M might be possible, but it will be a tight fit.

(edit: not final build Photo - has yet to install final ram-block (which I got in my mail yesterday))
