for a case to WC in i would suggest the Cosmos S... It can fit most 360 radiators up top w/ no modding and well I added a 240 in to the drive bays but that was my decision because I needed a second loop. heres a a few pics of my adventure w/ the Cosmos S


my two loops


the color I went with for my loop

Thanks I like the case I especially like that I can mount my rad internally

Do you think there is enough room for all the gear plus some extras like UV and cathodes because I have to present it so I wanted to have it really neat...

It might look like its full but there are still loads of places to put cold cathodes. there is enough space for one next to the rad up top and the same goes for the bottom and the drive bays its a HUGE case this case can fit one of the LARGEST motherboards out there the skulltrail I think there is a video with it in it i will try and find it.

For a case I highly recommend the DD torture rack for w/c, not to mention for a senior project IMO i think it would look cool to be able to see all the compents bare and partially in the open such as in the toruture rack. The waterbox is a nice case but i picks up dust like nothing else.

As the base for my coolant, the rest of my recipe is in that PDF...If you have a Audi/VolksWagon dealership near you can get that Pentosin cheap, G11 is blue and G12 is red...Just add 4 ounces of it to every 40 ounces or so of distilled water for a 10-1 mix..

The 480 GTX is a nice rad, with just a CPU and GPU a 360 would be plenty, but over kill on your rad is really a good thing, if nothing else it will help even your temp's out, they wont spike so much on you....If you can afford it and realize that you don't have to have it you might want to grab one... I had mine at one time as a free standing rad, I just set it at the rear of my comp...How or where do you want to mount your rad? A 360 can easily be mounted to your rear fan mount with a rad-box..Radbox ..Or just make some brackets to hang it on the back...



I like a big case for WC'ing, the CM Stacker is a good one, the Chemming/Chieftec server cases are nice ones also, especially if you want to do some modding to them...


Do you have the fans on both sides blowing air in ?

Nope...One side is pushing the other is pulling, thats what the guys are talking about when they say they have a push-pull on their rad...

I think I will get the torture rack but since I can only mount 240RAD's is it possible to do something like this Pump->CPU->RAD->GPU->RAD back to pump?
post #18 of 24
Generally people go Res -> Pump -> Rad -> Rad -> CPU -> GPU -> Res. Remember, the water doesn't instantly heat up to the temp of your CPU, all the water in the loop heats and cools as one, in effect. You want the res before the pump so that it primes it, and then rads right after the pump to minimize heat dump from it. The order makes little difference, I'd say it's more worthwhile to have a logical sequence for the layout of your gear than anything else.

What if im doing a T-line how does this change things?
post #20 of 24
Just put your t-line right before the pump, same as the res, it will make it easier to prime your pump there....
