Nice idea. Why didn't I think of that
Have you considered attaching the inverter to the inside of the side panel, cause that is what I'm now considering doing if I follow your design. That way there 1 less disconnection that has to be made (inverter to back plate 2 pin wire).
Thanks for the pictures & idea

- a 120 rad in the upper rear exhausting air
- setup would be single loop cpu water cooling: lower front rad > res > pump > cpu block > upper rear rad > lower front rad
- alternatively set up a 240 rad along the floor where the lower drive cage used to be replacing the lower front rad or even adding more cooling to the loop â€“ Iâ€™d prefer to avoid this since this would need serious case modding and not sure with HX750 PSU there would be room
Any thoughts appreciated â€“ again, just my mind meandering here.
I think you should pursue this idea.
It sounds like a very clean interior and good space management. Definitely would want the HDD module.
Personally, I have my doubts that the H50 tubes would reach far enough for the Rad to be that far from the CPU.
Do you have an idea of how simple/difficult it would be to remove the HDD cage. Also, if you did remove it, how simple/difficult would it be to reinstall it if you ever wanted to?
I've considered mounting the Rad to the top with 120mm fans exhausting upwards, but I'm unsure if a push/pull would fit without squeezing between the top of the pump and the rad. Some of my own mind meandering, as well.
