Now for the hard question regarding the BH2. You think I can include the gpu/gpu block in the loop? The issue is going to be the top mounted radiator and fans which raises the question if there enough room between the end of the gpu and the start of the radiator for tubes to reach the gpu block.
The room between the radiator and the end of the gpu is unknown for BH2 atleast.

I think your gpu block fitting isn't gonna be a issue its being able to fit enough rads to support 2 blocks . The bh2 is narrow and a rad up front even a 120 isn't gonna be easy to squeeze in there. Thin rads thin fans 120 and a 240 at best 120 up front. Unless you go with a short card like Gabriel Radeon nano a full length gpu is barely gonna squeeze in with a fan let alone a radiator and fan (hence putting a 120 on the right side not gpu side

Sweet builds!
I am not that experienced to be able to do separate pump and res etc ... That is why I wanted to keep it simple by using the combined res/pump.
Maybe this might be okay in terms of size?

In terms of the res being on top of the pump like you mentioned, you think it'll be okay if it's not that way?

In terms of the radiator I was planning to just use 1 radiator but a thick one around 40mm at the top with 2 x 120mm fans.
In terms of fitting it'll look like the Ek predator 240 picture taken by Jim.

I won't be overclocking to high so I think 1 thick 240mm radiator should be fine for 1 gpu and 1 cpu block.
I was watching some video's by "jays2cents" and he said that it's okay to do 120mm radiator per component.


To be honest what I REALLY wanted to do but gave up on was have 2 x reservoirs and 1 pump but b/c I don't know how to use things separately i gave up on that dream.
From the pictures of the BH2 that I have seen it seems it has space for 2 x horizontal reservoirs and 1 pump behind them.

This is what I really wanted:
(obviously the size of ress will matter on how much space is in this case which I am unsure)

My opinion is thinner is better for this particular case you are gonna run out of room real quick I love my darkside slim 240 cross flow rads.

As for the pump below resivoir I've always been told and it makes sense to do what I said. Also why you see all the res pump combos with the res on top. Look at gabes build log for his bh4 and subscribe to the water coolers pic thread

I do not see your dual res or even single res on its side in that space working you will see when you get the res/pump combo how much bigger it really is u can use my nova pic of my itx board with res right next to it as a good example

Damn man.
I guess I'm just going to give up for now and wait for bh2 build logs to come out.
My experience with water cooling is 0 and so I can't even imagine myself trying to do what I want.
Plus not having the case to take measurements sucks aswell.

Frustrating.

Not sure why mounting the res/pump on its side Is so important just grab something like this
http://www.performance-pcs.com/ek-xres-100-spc-60-mx-pwm-incl-pump.html

And mount it in the same spot or where ever it fits.

If you would be willing to seperate pump and res buy a res mount it horizontal and run a tube run down below to a pump in the Lower bay. It's not as hard as you think.

Buy case get it in front of you and place ur educated guess of order. Building the loop is half the fun I'm always bummed when the build is over. Can't rush either

Putting the pump in the lower bay would make you have to drill big holes in the case for tubes to go down to it correct?
Also, I can MAYBE make 2 of these fit [if my pump is at the bottom]: https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-res-x3-110

According to the pics I saw of your bh4, it seems like you have mounted your pump where the 80mm exhaust fan should be if I'm not wrong?
Would mounting the pump down in the lower bay effect any of the hdd/ssd mounts? I ask because I am in need of them.
post #1718 of 2687
If i'm using SSDs only in the lower compartment of the BH4, will the little 60mm fan will help as exhaust ? Even a bit ?

It will pull some air flow down there depending on fans in the rest of your case. Most air will be vented straight out the back or top though depending on gear. Path of least resistance and all.

Thanks, i will be using a tower style cpu heatsink (push/pull), 2 front fans and no fans on top. I am not expecting much from that 60mm fan, but i will use one nonetheless, just because biggrin.gif

+rep for your quick answer wink.gif
