In Win 909 Owners Club - Page 19

post #181 of 394
Just got my 909 delivered and have started to figure out the pros and cons. Love the case but I found the cable routing to be less than perfect especially on the right side of the mobo area. I'm going to use braided cabling for everything and wanted clean straight lines from the 24-pin, USB header and sata connectors so the SSD mounting bracket holes provide good space to route through. That is unless you're using them for SSD's which blocks the cable route completely so I came up with a little solution.

Mount the SSD's on standoffs. Sata data cables pass through with no issue and low profile sata power will at a push. 24 pin ATX will need to be slid through before mounting the SSD to the sled. Should help if you've only got angled sata cables on the SSD/HDD side especially if they are single molex to multiple angled connectors it should help the look of the rear cable mess. With the standoffs I'm using the total height is only 16mm so its not touching the glass. Slightly longer standoffs should get most cables through. Could be nice with an led strip on the rear top of the frame pointing down to shine on the back of the ssd. Just a tip I wanted to share.

Hello People!

I just bought a In Win 909 and I'm very excited about it, but I have a question about radiator placement. I've got an EK-CoolStream RAD XT 240 and an Alphacool NexXxoS ST30 Full Copper 240mm. Will I be able to fit an 30mm radiator and a 45mm radiator in the front and bottom at the same time? (Doesn't matter which one is front and which one is bottom)

You may have a clearance issue with the bottom. We would recommend to put it in the rear if you can.

The rear of this case is designed for a radiator...doesn't really make sense to leave that space empty. smile.gif You can put the 240mm radiator in there OR sell it and buy a 360mm radiator. Either way, the other one will fit in the bottom easily with two fans on top and you're ready to go. If you feel like it down the road, which I did, you can also install 2 fans in the front area but make sure they're SP fans because they're pulling air from the top down. I also installed a JetFLO 120 fan in the middle of the case to get air flowing nicely. It seems to have helped me keep the VRM temperatures down a bit by pulling more air out of the case.

I ended up getting some crud in my water loop so I have to pull it apart anyway. I'm strongly considering the removal of one of those 3.5" HDD bays to free up some space in that area and maybe relocate my reservoir.

Okay glad to know, Thanks! I also find it quite extraordinary that I would get an answer of an In Win Representer, never had a company that actually helps people with their products on formus, so thumbs up for that!thumb.gif

Thanks for the help! I first thought placing a radiator would interfere with my cables in the back, but I found out it didn't so I guess I'll return my 240mm and get a 360mm to get some better cooling. I've also got some Noctua NF-A14 from my last build so I guess I'll paint them black (the colors on them are really ugh) and put them in the front to get the cooling for other parts. I'll have to take a look at where the placement of the back radiator would be, because I'm doing my first HardTubing build and thought the place where your JetFLO fan is located, would be the place where the tubing would go through, if not I might add another fan.

I am a bit wondering how difficult it would be to remove the HDD bays (Need one for my hard drive though). I was also wondering if I could drill a small hole that would get the tubing from the bottom radiator to the radiator on the back or get an PCI Passthrough. But I guess I first need to actually see the case before doing such things as I've never worked in a case like this.

Thanks again to both of you for helping me out.

Glad I could help in some way. smile.gif There are several hard tubing builds out there so you should have plenty of pictures and information to help with your build. As for the hard drives, I have one 4TB HDD left over from a NAS box that went bad before it's time so I'm using one of the bays. Apparently it's fairly easy to remove the bays (provided you have nothing in the case) by removing the head of the rivets holding them in place. Some of the custom work done on this case (shown earlier in this thread even) has been amazing! My case is nothing fancy and couldn't compare to theirs, but I'm glad I did my first water cooled build using soft tubing because I've had to drain the system twice now. First was a bad motherboard and CPU and now this second time will be because I failed to properly flush the system out before adding the coolant and now i have several small pieces of hair and strands of metal shavings inside the CPU water block that's blocking 4-5 tiny channels inside the cooler.

Before I actually do the flush and refill however, I want to learn the best way to install a drain line because it's both time consuming and difficult to remove the rear radiator each time I want to drain the system. I was thinking of adding a t fitting somewhere and sending the line through the back of the case. Does anyone else have a better idea? It would also be REALLY handy to have some quick disconnect lines installed in the system but I hear they can really restrict water flow.

Not a problem. Happy to help. smile.gif In regards to you question, @Fidelity21 pretty much covers it. thumb.gif

Right fellas,

I just bought the 909 myself 2 days ago and I am hoping it'll be delivered tomorrow. I also have a MSI X99a Godlike Gaming Carbon motherboard. The board has a 3.1 Type C USB connector at the back panel. I am aware that the 909 has a type C post in the front (well the side) also. How would I make use of this port? The board has 2 x USB 3.1 connectors (supports additional 4 USB 3.1 Gen1 ports) - Would I be able to use these headers with the front panel type C port?


Thanks in advance,

Alex

I have an Asus Deluxe II motherboard with 2 USB headers as well. The USB 3.0 and 3.1 header ports are the same size...and the form factor of USB C vs normal USB as an output doesn't make a difference to the motherboard header. smile.gif So to answer your question, YES, it will work without a problem. I have all 4 USB ports working on my case using the Deluxe II motherboard and I think your motherboard is an even better option...so lucky you. smile.gif
