Acrylic Watercooling question

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Ok, I'm wondering if anyone has had any experience with mounting a internal radiator in an acylic case? If so what way is a good way to do this? Also if you have pics can you please post them. I thinking of using this one below:


I will be cooling a cpu and gpu, I hope I just not wishful thinking in thinking this would work. If anyone has any suggestions please post. Thanks.

Please do not use that. that's a thermaltake rad which uses the inferior method of condensor style cooling.

You would end up happier in the long run using a different radiator. There are several build guides around here.
If you have already purchased that one, can you send it back still for a refund?
you should read the guides in TbN= Gir's sig.

No, I have not purchased that radiator yet. Just trying to get the feel of which one I should get that would mount internal. Well I guess I wont get that one though! I have looked over TnB's guide and definitely a good write up with some great suggestions. From what he was saying the black ice rads seem to do alright, not sure if one like this: Would mount on the rear wall of the case w/ a fan. Thats why I was thinking of getting that bay mounted one. But now that its out of the question, have you had any experince with mounting on the rear inside of a case w/ a 80mm or 120mm rad and fan combo?

You can mount a 120x2 or 120x3 radiator on the back using the swiftech rad box.

What is your budget for the radiator, and what all are you needing to cool with it?

You can add in your system into your sig here.

Well for the radiator I'm wanting to stay around $50, but was wanting to figure out a way to mount a Rad inside one of these two cases below and I will be cooliong a 775 duo core cpu and a x1950xtx GPU.

Thoses cases arent too great for serious water cooling. If you want an acrylic case, I would get a Danger Den black series.

I have 2 of the Sunbeam Acrylic cases. It's all depend on how you make use of it to water cool.















And I don't want to spend over $200 for one DD case...which is over price.

Oh now that is a sweet setup!! That exactly what I was looking for, so are both of those sunbeam cases? I agree about the danger den cases, they make great cases it seems like, but they are just a little out of my budget. And I had to look twice at the sunbeam cube becuase I thought that was a waterbox from DD. Both of them look great though! So was there no way you could mount a radiator internal in tower case?

Yes, both are Sunbeam, the tower and UFO cube. Those were the day when i got the tower for $50.00 included shipping from Newegg. Well, you can mount a 80X2 radiator on the front bottom which are for the hard drives. And a 120 or 120 X 2 on the top of case next to the PSU, and give up one of the 5.25" bay. Both are ATX cases so for mobos are very flexible.
