post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
Hello all,
First of all, this place rock. Learn a lot while researching for water cooling, you guys are awsome.
Second of all, Petra shop rock HARD. Love those guys.

Now, I have this



My goal is to have better cables management and install a WC system. Below is the case all stripped and ready to rock and roll.



Cut 2 holes for better cable management and mount a pump. I need a better location and also a location for the reservoir. Can some one give me suggestion on that?



The Water Cool system of mine are:
Swiftech MCRES Micro Revision 2 reservoir
Swiftech MCP655 12v DC Pump - with Speed
Controller
Swiftech MCB-120 Rev 2
Swiftech Apogee GTZ
Black Nylon 1/2in. Barbed T0-8BNg
HW Labs Black Ice GTX360 gtx360black
NB Water Block from Viper John.
Tube is Masketclear.

All in a box

Actually I am using the 7/16 tube with 1/2" barb, so I am thinking of just using zip tie or tie wrap. Is it not ok to do so? This is my first mod and first water cool set up, so I am very appreciate for all commens and advices.

Also, is that a good place for a pum? The fans' housing is plastic,will the vibration from the pump break that? Also, is there any suggestion for where to place the reservoir?

I have a CM 690, and it also has a fan mount on the bottom. I just screwed the pump into the grill and didn't bother with the fan. I have plenty of airflow anyway. Then, you could buy a Swiftech Micro-res and install its mounting bracket on the grill between your main bay and the hard drive bay. Or, screw it onto that metal bar under the top of your case.

I did the same. My pump is bolted down through the fan grill as well.

zip ties will work fine. that should be an ok placement for your pump. it might give you a better idea if you place in some other hardware too so see if it'll touch anything or not.

and if i recall correctly, the side barb is the inlet and the one pointing up is the outlet. jsut something to keep in mind when you orient your hardware.

Here are some update,
Things get done a lot slower then I wanted, with Xmas coming up and work, I just have to do little at a time, but loving every single minute of it

Here's my radiators with 6 fans + shroud



Re do my connectors for all fans



Change the location for the pump and reservoir, gotta thanks nafljhy. Otherwise if i kept the pump at the same place before, i will have problem with installing my graphic card.





and my mother all clean up and ready for water blocks.



Since I have to go away this weekend, look like things won't be finalize until next week.


Please enjoy and if you have any suggestion or commens, please feel free to post here or PM me.
