post #4621 of 6397
So what I gathered from that I'll be fine with the rad in the top as long as it's push/pull right? That works for me, I like the look of push/pull. I'm gonna try to get a list of parts together and post in the watercooling section to make sure it all looks good. Last question for you guys, where is the best place to get WC parts? I've been looking at FrozenCPU cause I've dealt with them before and never had any problems but if there is somewhere better I'd like to know.

Thanks everybody for the suggestions, +REP all around. biggrin.gif

Push/pull isn't necessary, but you can do it. I would recommend just pull because it is a whole bunch easier to clean the radiator that way. I'm pretty fond of FrozenCPU for parts. They have a wide selection and shipping is consistent and they are easy to work with, good customer support. If they dont have the parts you are looking for, go to Performance-PC. They are a bit more expensive on shipping, but parts cost about the same.

I bought most of my stuff from Performance-PC, mainly because I have to pay tax if I order from FrozenCPU lol, but I can say those guys are good.
Quick shipping, nothing wrong with my order.


Do you plan on using the top rad as intake or exhaust? Just curious, cause I could never decide for myself which config would be better...

Hello,
While surfing the net looking for the magicool rads,
I discovered frozencpu noted that new fan mount holes has to be drilled if the fans are to be fitted back at the bottom.
Can the fans be mounted right back without drilling the case after the filters are removed?

I was assuming that exhaust would be the best, is the 120MM even needed though? I plan on delidding my 3770K and putting a second lightning but that will be all that's on the loop. Also, pushing air in would just disrupt air flow and pull in hot air anyways right? With all the air blowing out the top I'd assume so.

The way I see it, either way you'd be pulling in hot air, but if you have the top as an intake, it pulls in less hot air than if it was an exhaust pulling air straight from the main radiator.

Also, I didnt want to mess up the positive pressure setup of the case by sticking a high power fan up top sucking air out of the case. If it was an intake, I could just stick a filter on it as well, and bam. Extra filtered positive pressure, even less dust. lol

No, the fans have to either be attached to the filter or to the radiator, the steel chassis of the case without the filter doesn't have holes for you to screw the fans into.

Not yet a Silverstone case owners but I'm converting from Fractal Design. I love Fractal Design cases but my Define Mini was just too heavy (but silent) to bring to LAN parties.

Silverstone is very high quality and I'm using them along with Raidmax and Bitfenix cases.

What do people think of this model: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811163223? It looks very good at its price point.

Damn, that's one bargain basement case!

I know next to nothing about it and am not a big fan of Micro-ATX (If I want something portable, I'll use a laptop thanks!). However, in checking it out, looks like a good little case. I like the top mount PSU, looks like you can actually run a couple of cards in SLI if you want and will probably fit a mid-sized CPU cooler.

I did see the comments about USB issues - don't let that scare you. Silverstone customer service is excellent. I've had several calls with Joel @ Silverstone in regards to questions and one replacement issue and he's always been terrific!

For that price, it'd be hard to go really wrong. I spend that much on one round of drinks after a softball game cheers.gif

Okay I just ordered my first Silverstone case SilverStone PS08B and be putting my lowend gaming rig (Athlon II x2 CPU with Radeon 4870) into it next week. I can't wait to order a Temjin but so excited about this cute micro-ATX build I get to do. No more cheapo cases!
