P182 + Black Ice GTX480?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Alright, I am getting an Antec P182 and I was thinking of maybe getting a GTX480. If I do get the GTX480, where would you put it on the case? I am not sure where to. There is only one thing though, I want little to no modding at all. The case is too beautiful to ruin.

Well there are a few of us on here that were brave enough to mod a P180/182 and had it turn out quite nicely. You might be able to mount that rad vertically on the back, outside of the case. I know there is 1 or 2 with a WC setup in a P180/182

If I mount it vertically, it will stick out the top and I would have to make holes for the tubing. I am thinking of putting it horizontally on the top of my case with the one radiator sticking out the back so the tubes can go down and I can use the holes that are already made for watercooling.

That would work great like that, just use some spacers between rad and case so it sits off the top of the case a couple of inches so you'll get good air flow through it...

I just made a stand for mine once and stood it behind my case...

That's genius... Mind giving me some instructions or something on how to do it? Also, how is the airflow on it? Are all the fans pointing in one direction?

Thanks...I just made it out of 1/8" thick by 3/4" wide aluminum flat bar,you can get it at almost any hardware store... Make your fan screws a little longer then needed and attach your upright pieces to that...I just used a drill to drill out the holes in it for decoration and sanded it out a little...You'll need to bend the bottom of the upright where it attaches to the base a little to get it all lined up...Just do it with a pair of pliers, its real soft metal and bends easily...

I'd use some shrouds on your 480, they are a cheap way to get a few more C...Part 1- 480 GTX Temp's with and with-out shrouds....Those shrouds on that one are made out of aluminum channel...I just make them out of gutted fans anymore, works as well and is a lot easier to make to..

Yeah all my fans are blowing the same direction, thats a push-pull set-up...If you only use them on one side I'd have them pulling...

.Even if you use 120x25mm fans to gut it will help....How To: Make any Sized shroud in 2 minutes

What exactly is a shroud and can I buy them pre-made?

A shroud is like the things in that pic next to my rad, they set the fans off of the rad a little and help to close the dead spot in the fans air flow, it makes your rad more efficient by pulling air across more of the rad surface...A fans air flow looks kind of like a do-nut hole, setting them off the rad a inch or so helps to close the hole in the center...

You cant really buy them pre-made that will fit that rad...That link I left shows you how to make them out of gutted 120x38mm fans, thats supposed to be the optimum depth for a shroud 1.5"...But even using gutted 120x25mm fans will help...

Wait, so if I do that, I can still use the fan?

probably in some ghetto way... just go to your local PC store and ask for dead fans, you wont have to worry about them still working
or go dumpster-diving.

if you can get lots, stacking 2 25mm fan housings would be a great alternative to a 38mm.
