both at the front of case, both at the rear of the case or one at the rear and one at the front?

really dont want to have to dismantle just to add tubing.

how have you tj11 owners done it?

thanks guys

I never had two rads in the bottom myself, but if I were to do that I would definitely have them with the ports facing the front.

That being said, I do have one 480 in the bottom of my TJ11 right now, and it is also facing the front.

I've had the 480 in the bottom coupled with a 240 in the front bays, where the flow went res>pump>480>cpu>gpu1>gpu2>240>res

If you ran your rads in the bottom in series, I don't see why you'd have to dismantle the case at all.

Assuming you'd be feeding the rads through the first 'oval opening' in the front of the TJ11, route it to one rad then into the other and then along the case and up second 'oval opening' between the AP181s and onto your cpu.

That's pretty much all I can say without knowing what gear and other things you have.

These pics are from when I ran the 480+240 config

I have now moved to a Caselabs so my TJ11 doesn't get as much attention anymore..

thank you for the priceless information smile.gif
appreciate it

my main concern is how did you get in between the two rads to attach the tubing with so little hand space?

thx

ps
never mind. think ive got it smile.gif going to put the tubing on rads first so only tight squeeze will be the one going from rad to rad

thx

I have now moved to a Caselabs so my TJ11 doesn't get as much attention anymore..

Just a bit of a observation lol, if you ever lose your home you can always move into one of your cases! Wow you have great taste and very nice set ups in both of you sig rigs! I am still rocking my TJ10 Nvidia edition case pieced together with left over parts from older rigs I had! One thing about water cooling with dye in the water, when it springs a leak it is no longer non conductive lol FRY!!!! PARTS!!!! lol I had a pretty ok unit in till my mishap (my own stupidity though) I was saving to get a Caselabs case but holding off till I get into some hardware that belongs in a case like that. Not the Phenom II 970BE on a UD3 board that I am running. The only thing that is worth while in my case at the moment is the GTX680 Classy overclocked to 1340mhz core and 7200mhz memory which with the right CPU and Board would be really nice
post #5434 of 6404
with the 560 and 280 rads at the bottom of the TJ11 case with the ports at the front of the case facing inward toward one another do you suggest

connecting the tubing going from one rad to the other before putting the radiators into the case?

not sure how one could reach inside the case to connect the tubing otherwise

how restrictive are 90 degree fittings?

Hi ckoons,

I am running a full w/c setup in a TJ 11 and at the bottom I have two rads plus a 1200i PSU.

The radiators are an Alphacool NexXxoS UT60 Full Copper 480 and an Alphacool NexXxoS UT60 Full Copper 360mm. The PSU is on it's edge on the same side as the 360 of course.

On the outside of the 480 I have 4 fans. In between the rads I have 3 fans, and on the outside of the 360(which is the exhaust side), I have 3 also.

All fans are Noctua NF-F12 PWM...... the power for all comes from the PSU and the PWM signal for all comes from an Aquacomputer Aquaero 6 XT. One fan has the tacho going to the Aquaero.

The rads are fixed to two rad frames : a Phobya 3 x 120mm Radiator Stand - Black Powder Coat - 15mm Spacing
and a Phobya 4 x 120mm Radiator Stand - Black Powder Coat - 15mm Spacing. You can find them listed on such sites as Frozen CPU. Some mod work has to be done to allow the two stands to sit together with only 25 mm separating them.

Both rads face the front and connection between them is via an SLI connector. I think I may have used a Koolance Dual VID Connector - Adjustable. It has the ability to be adjusted from 18.6 mm to 30.6 mm. Once the rads are setup on the two radiator stands the gap will be somewhere around 25mm... but at least this allows for a little each way.

The inlet and outlets are similar. I pulled the plumbing back with extensions and angles to allow a vertical connection through the front "oval" slot.

At the rear of the 480 rad there is space of about 3 inches and I have an outlet coming out of the back of the rad, a 90 degree and a tap, which I use for drainage. (these rads have that extra outlet)

I hope this is of somewhat useful. I think I took some photos some time back showing the rads prior to going into the TJ 11. I'll have a fossick around to see whether I kept any.

Oh, there wasn't much space left...... nothing needed to forced in, but the wiring from the Corsair 1200i places a touch of pressure on the back of the 360 rad such that there is no need to fix the rad stands at all, the whole radiator complex does not move at all.

And as a piece of interest, I also have another rad in the TJ 11. It is a single NexXxos 60 copper, and is fitted above the CPU where that 120mm fan outlet is situated. It also has been fitted in such a way that one side acts as the filler port for the whole system. The fan is now below it.

Cheers:)

That looks fantastic. I can't even get my aircooled FT02 to look that neat.
