TMXDesk ~ Full Desk Enclosed Liquid Cooled Case - Page 2

post #11 of 17
The bucket turned out great.

Is there much flex in it? Mainly wondering about the motherboard area.

I was a bit worried about that too.
It's actually really sturdy and rigid. I don't think it has much more flex than an aluminum box would have.

Just wondering, whats your plan for ventilation? You have those case fans on the left, but going from the mock up, the rad's gonna dump the air right in the middle so the right sides gonna get some of that heat as well. Unless the rads gonna be an exhaust orientation?

Sorry I didn't put everything in that diagram. Both sides have triple case fans.

The original design looks like this:


But I'm considering just putting the radiator and fans on the right side of the desk venting out, because there's lots of extra space over there.
That would give me more space for hidden components in the back.
Unfortunately I can't have the case fans in pull configuration because they are RGB and the backs look like crap.
Plenty of options though.
Any thoughts?

I think they would look good on the side with the LED fans. Someone needs to make some reverse fans, I have the same issue on my build, wanting a fan pulling air, but not wanting the plain back on display.

Damn I was wondering if I was the only person to have that issue. How hard would it be to just put a reverse-fanblade top on these fans CORSAIR!
The other option is to use a straight fan blade, then you could push or pull based on the direction the blades were spinning. Obviously not ideal though. Probably lose a lot of CFM.

I'd settle for someone miniaturizing those dyson blade-less fans.
