[Official] Cooler Master ATCS 840 Owners Club - Page 326

post #3251 of 4392
Ok guys ... news. Today i disassembled the ATCS840 for painting smile.gif
Meanwhile, me and a friend that has a really cool company that assembles custom water cooling systems were checking the case...

Basically this is what we came up with:

420 Rad in the top with 3x 2 Noiseblockers PK-3 140mm fans in PUSH-PULL
280 Rad in the bottom, with 2x Noiseblockers PK-3 140 fans in PUSH-PULL

We'll be re-building the front intake area... so it can work with 2x120 or 2x140 fans... maybe 2x120mm, since i have 2 Slipstreams.

It's going to be soooo cool tongue.gif

Oh well, it was this or a new GPU ... i guess the GPU will have to w8 biggrin.gif

Goof luck Pedros. Please make sure you post as much pictures as you can, I am getting ready for a WC my system and the idea of 420 & 280 internally sounds really good.
post #3253 of 4392
Sounds awesome, can't wait to see your results!

On a similar note I'm changing up the internals of my case in the next day or two.

I'm installing a Hyper 212+, adding on the GPU Cooling Duct (Enermax Magma, also removing the PCI slot covers so there's less resistance), and I'm going to see how taping off the rearmost fan slot and making the front top fan slot an intake does for my temperatures. I got that last idea from Ehume actually considering what he said about his case and setup. See how it goes though ^^

Anyone gone from a Storm Sniper to an ATCS 840 by any chance?

I am thinking along this route but the benefits don't seem too big for an upgrade.

Can actually the front 230mm fan easily exchanged for 2x 120mm fans?
maybe I am going that route...
Maybe going to use 2150 rpm GTs (see my sig) for that, or would Silverstone AP121 be more suitable for that?
That is if the front 230mm can easily be replaced with 2x 120mm (2x 120 = 240, so should be OK)

Pedros, can you give more details on how you are going to deal with this, I'm interested... smile.gif

Then I might do the same with the top fans, making them 3x 120 mm ones: two first as intake and last as exhaust...
That gives me the need for a filter for those... Hmmm interesting and challenging

Not sure if that is going to be a good idea...

DUDE! ME! smile.gif eheheh. But i wanted the ATCS due to the Watercooling space! smile.gif
In fact, i'm using the Sniper at this moment wink.gif I was able to get a 240mm and a 120mm rad ... but that was it ... smile.gif
I still love my Sniper... full 200mm fans and stuff smile.gif

Depends on what you want ... but the ATCS is superior in build, size ... and well, i won't say airflow because it isn't tongue.gif But it can be, if modded wink.gif

I am thinking along this route but the benefits don't seem too big for an upgrade.

As far as front intake, it's pretty easy to replace the 230mm by 2 120s ... i basically used zip ties and they fit the hard drive cage perfectly and have a great air flow! smile.gif I must redo this because my hdd cage is going to be "destroyed" eheheh so i will need to build some kind of ... stuff ... ehehe i don't know what to do yet, but i just sent the case to painting.

For the front... if i where you... i would mount the bottom fan for intake... 2 in the front for intake ... and... well... the top for pushing hot air out, since the hot air rises ...

Don't mix intake/exhaust fans side by side... you'll mess up airflow in a blink of an eye smile.gif

I think it's a direct fit for the 3 x 120 fans on the top ... smile.gif You have the placeholders and all smile.gif

You can see it here:

3 fans on the top

2 fans on the front with zip-ties biggrin.gif

Interesting but the 230mm fan was mounted to the screw holes there in the metal just in front of it...

I have an idea, if I order one set of two of the fan brackets for the top fans I could use these for front fan mounting as it seems the screw holes are perfect for the alignment of 120 mm fans...
It seems that can work, but that gives another challenge...
I was hoping to avoid attaching them to the HDD cage via zipties...

or could I use a Yate Loon D22SL-12H?

Attention... that Yate Loon is a mistake ... those CFM's mut be cut by half! smile.gif It was a disappointment smile.gif

Mind... the 230 fans simply don't move enough air for WC ... i had to be creative and it's been working flawlessly smile.gif eheheh but, it could work the way you are saying smile.gif
post #3260 of 4392
or I keep the stock front intake fan as it seems to be a 110 CFM one... as I will stick to air cooling...
although when the GT 2150 deal goes through I will try a bit what I can do, just for curiosity-sake wink.gif
