Help with my water cooling build please - Page 2

Would I be better off try it with like a thermaltake v51
post #12 of 14
I'm using a TT V71 currently and only partially put together:




That 420 was only 4mm longer than the case compartment is tall. TT makes some weird design choices now and again. It's just a bunch of little things that bugged me. For the price though, I'd do it again. For instance that's biggest powersupply I could fit in the case with my rads. At the time that was the shortest PS that was at least an 850. If TT gave me 10 more mm I'd have been able to go with one of their PS when I put all the rads in they ADVERTISED as being possible. I don't know what their engineers were thinking. But like I said, for the price, they have a lot of features and I'd do it again.

edit: yes, that is a pain brush cut to fit to hold up my video card. I need a back plate.

2nd edit: Also, yes that's $800 in cooling equipment on $600 of components. (just adding video card price to processor price.) Not a great return on investment if it was just for gaming and the build itself wasn't the hobby.
