It was the first thing i considered, but duo to the fan position right under it, i couldn't get enough clearance for a 45º fitting.
Instead, i drilled two more holes in the front to mount the front radiator lower, and it worked very well.

Good job though, I myself have a small case and I know the challenge of trying to fit everything inside. My side cover is off right now, I need to get some different tubing for my corsair H60 so my rad will fit in my case and I can put the side cover on.

Keep it up man!

Thanks!

SSD properly installed in the left side (double side tape to fix it well).



Temperature sensors in place.



Time to wake up the monster!
Right side of the case:

Here with the mirror acrylic top plate of the H140-X:






I'll replace the ram memory with a pair of avexir blue led ram.

Next step: benchmark the whole system!

Thanks.
Tbh, the tubings are the part that i most liked =) maybe because it was a pain in the ass to make the measurements and adaptations, cuts, properly put the fittings etc...

First temperature measurements.
I had a problem with the room temp sensor (the blue one in the front case), so i had to use another sensor, no problem.

First test:
40min playing Dying Light, ULTRA/EXTREME SETTINGS 1080p
CPU: 4.7ghz 1.285v
GPU: +175mhz(from base 1114mhz-> new base 1289mhz, boost to 1529mhz)/+400mhz memory/+20mv voltage
RAM: XMP 2400mhz
Room temperature: 29,8ºC
Loop water temperature: 41,8ºC
Fans: 3x120 at 100% 1300rpm (as seen in this buildlog, even at 100% they are quiet, and i'll let them as it is since the difference in the noise at 900rpm is irrelevant), h140-x noctua ippc fan at 1000rpm (just quiet, not very quiet).
Proof:



Also, i had to make an adaptation to prevent hot air from the bottom to enter back the case through the right acrylic panel cutouts.




And, following @Darron knowledge, i did this to avoid the same problem with hot air coming back to inside the case:





More tests another day =)
I'm really happy with this build, and i'll finish this buildlog this week.

Nice to see ideas being reused.
Did you see any difference by doing these air-flow mods?

Yes. Considering all this changes, the water in the loop now is 3ºC cooler.
