Post Pics of your INTERNAL watercooling set up

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey everybody, I'm looking into installing custom water cooling but the biggest issue for me right now is how to fit a 240mm or 360mm radiator inside of a case?

Any suggestions?

Any suggestions on those "cube boxes"... they seem kind of expensive to me.

I want to see pics of anybody who managed to accomplish this task!

^^ I've looked through that thread but I want to focus specifically on the radiator being put on the inside. i'm really not into the external mounting because it looks bad but also its not a reasonable option with space considerations with my current set up. It's really hard to find any results on google so I'm asking here

i tried to fit my 480GTX rad in my case... lets just say it didnt fit.. umm if i were you i would just buy a big case. Also why have the rad inside the case? the heat will just spread to the rest of the components. (unless you mount it on the back)

It will make your life a whole lot easier like you say, by making your intire water cooling setup all internal...

I have a a nice loop going on with the case in my sig with a dual 5.25" reservoir and a 1 x 120mm radiator, pump all internal....

its heaver than all hell, put its all inside and someone with the bright idea of running off with my computer wont make it very far...

I'm not sure what the name of my pump is, but i do know its the same exact pump that apple put in the water cooled G5 desktop computers... Anyone help me with the name???
good enough

360 rad fits okay in a Lian Li 343B, takes up half the drive bays and is almost a perfect fit. Ref my build log. The downside is the cost of the case, other than that it's great.

^^ I had been eying that case but the cost is too expensive as I'm just a highschool student. I'm guessing that I will be modding a chenming case. I've never modded a case before and its size plus extreme cheapness seems perfect for a start. My current case has lights and all that but my goal is to build a silent PC that can run 24/7 without even being able to tell whether its on or not. Looks matter to me but not flashly lights
