PS hope this post isn't too off-topic.

I THINK this thread here on overclock.net may be the same build at an earlier stage and it's wonderful work. I didn't go past the first page to follow it through.

Use the washers you have for sure. You should be able to find the fender washers in any decent hardware store, HD or an auto parts store.

I selected a MOBO with an FDD controller for a similar reason. I have old programs and old documents on floppies and I didn't want yet another external USB device cluttering my desk. I found it very worthwhile to order a round, sleeved FDD cable and it had to be long in this case.

Hi guys, I'm finally getting around ordering my watercooling parts fairly soon, but I still have a couple questions.

My main question I'd like to ask you guys in this thread is what 240mm rads will fit behind the HDD cage without having to cut out part of the bottom of the case?

I've also made a thread in the watercooling section with details on my planned loop.

The bottom part of the rad must not extend more then 1.5mm (0,59") from the lower fan holes. See picture under:
450
If you take a look at my build log in my sig you can see how much rad you can fit in this case. I have a 360 in the top, 360 on the harddrive cages extending up into the 5.25" bays and a 120mm in the back. I have cut out a piece of the bottom to make room for a larger radiator then what i described above. Depending on your cards you should have plenty of space for a rad + Push-Pull on the harddrive cage as well.

I know for a fact that the Magicool Pro Slim 240 will fit. HW-Labs GTX240 will not fit. If you suggest a couple of rads i can check them out.

BTW: I responded in your other thread as well.

Ok, I need some help again. redface.gif

What does the adapter for top-mounting a 360 rad look like? I've looked through all my boxes of computer parts and I can't find it. Is it already installed somewhere in the case?

I ordered my case off of Newegg, is there a possibility it wasn't part of the package?

Also, I received most of my WC parts today. I went with the XSPC EX240 rad for behind the HDD cage after hearing that the RS240 does fit. I haven't tried it yet, but according to my measurements, its right at 15mm for the bottom clearance. smile.gif

Ok, thanks. They're shown in the picture on Newegg, so I should have them... somewhere. rolleyes.gif I'll just need to keep looking.

Hi,
Just wanted to share my experience on the front I/O panel.
Wanted to buy a new case (Cosmos II ?) for building my new rig, the only reason being the ATCS 840 doesn't have USB 3.0 on the pop-up front panel and that is a bit stupid in my opinion (buying a new case just for that reason) smile.gif
USB 3.0 drive bay panels are available of course but the pop-up panel is really nice and the case is the best I've seen even today.
So after several hours searching the Internet and having disassembled the pop-pop panel, here is the simplest option I found : 2 USB 3.0 A Male / A Female cables connected on one side to the motherboard with a 20 pin adapter / 2 USB A Female.

http://www.ldlc.com/fiche/PB00121229.html
http://www.ldlc.com/fiche/PB00121229.html

Now on the other side (connecting to the front panel), it's more frustrating...
If you like to solder you can buy a dual USB 3.0 header like this :
http://www.conrad.fr/connecteur_usb_30_9_poles_p_61607_61607_887767_967845
Solder off the dual USB 2.0 header from the PCB, solder on the USB 3.0 header and solder 18 pins (or make yourself a new PCB).

A more simple option is to solder off the USB 2.0 (or cut it off) and just glue the two female ends of the UBS 3.0 cables (one end on top of each other, some plastic needs to be cut off to get flush with the cutoff).

Case is for upgrading existing rig, going to buy Asus Z9PE-D8 WS Mobo (EVGA SR-X is HPTX format, shouldn't fit in ATCS 840 ?).
Mobo mounting holes (EEB) are not all the same as EATX (ATCS 840) but you can drill missing holes if needed :
http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/258406-12-eatx-interchangable

Will also upgrade the water cooling (2 CPU Xeon E5-2687W, 2 EVGA GTX 680 Hydro Copper).
3 x120 cm radiator will be mounted under the top panel just under three 120 cm fans.
Planning on getting 32 GB memory (GSkill DDR3-2133 PC3 17000, Asus website says Z9PE-D8 WS supports 2133 OC).
Storage is not upgraded (bought last year) : LSI MegaRAID 9265-8i + RAID-0 4x OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS 240 Go (DATA) + RAID-0 4x Corsair Force Series GT 60 Go (System).

Will see how all this OCs, given E5 limitations ?

I'm currently running my first watercooled computer! Snorkle.gif

I have an XSPC RX360 rad on top, with three YT 1200 rpms fans, and I was able to squeeze in the EX240 rad behind the harddrive cage without hacking up the case. It was a really tight fit though, but it slid in just fine. A hair taller and it wouldn't have fit. redface.gif

Only downside is that I forgot to check the pump before I installed it and its running at the highest setting. I wanted watercooling to be quiet, but now I'm sitting here listening to the pump gurgle and gargle lol. At least its still quieter than the stock fan on my 6970. wink.gif

I'll post some pictures later today. thumb.gif
