Of course it says on the site that you can use it as a passive cooler which I might do during the winter to keep the noise down to a dull roar and to see how temps are. Not sure if my Danger Den Fillport Res will fit between it and the front of my cabinet tho.
*OH BTW* You have those fans pointed incorrectly. They should have the flat sides facing each other. The way you have them they would be too long. Rad is 448mm in length and those fans w/o gap in that orientation would be 460mm in length. Won't work bro. But if you mount them side by side they come to 400mm long w/o gap.
Just realized I would have to mod the 5.25 Bay to fit it in there. Looks like I better come up with a Dremel soon if I wish to proceed with this.
Actually I just put these fans to show size, you are right, they should be rotated by 90 degrees. I would probably use different fans with shrouds, for example AP181 from silverstone, not sure though. With original fans, you at least have some for start would be cheaper to use stock ones, and just buy remaining ones.
As for the bays, you don't need dremel to remove that 5,25'' cage, just remove few screws or rivets with a driller. Pump + reservoir in this setup, best would be classic cylindrical reservoir (EK, bitspower ect.), with pump like DCC or D5 below it. You know, next to motherboard, very common in my builds. There is extra space for it, due to removal of 5,25'' bays, whole setup looks also better, because 5,25'' bays are no longer exposed via case window Then you will keep clean front of the case, just original mesh 5,25'' covers.
This is good example of gutted case like that:
just imagine these two rads are not 140mm like in this project, but these phobyas 400mm, and case is not fractal xl, but haf x Edited by aerial - 12/9/11 at 2:57pm
