Clever! Gotta love this club for the ingenuity.

Hmmm ... now I gotta decide whether to nix the card reader or just go with a 120mm. Might just stick with the 120mm.

Nah I don't think Clee's tubes are bent - maybe the angle of the photo. At least I hope not cos that could compromise the integrity of the tube.

Anyway, it can look clean with the tubes on the bottom ...



... and also what Rockr69 said makes a lot of sense.

Miscommunication here, I think.

I was referring to mounting the rad on the rear of the case (like I have now) but instead of the tubes on the bottom of the rad, while mounted to the rear,
the tubes positioned on the top of the rad. In turn that would cause the tubes to hit the 140mm fan, which is mounted on the top.

While we are on the subject though. Do you happen to know if I did choose to mount the H50's rad on the top of the case, would there be sufficient room for 2 fans to do a push/pull, without disturbing the pump? Then again, if the rad is mounted on the top of the case, is there a need for push/pull, maybe just the pull?

Correct the.ronin, my tubes are not bend, but they are a bit curved, similar to yours. Unless you are referring to the tubes being curved since my pump is, in a way, upside-down.

You guys are so great! Always making me laugh, reminds me of a commercial about drug addiction where the guy says "I'll try anything, once." so he does and he OD's.
Like I told Path a few pages back, it all depends, you don't need a push pull if you use on of General E's Delta fans, oh one of these pups: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...d&Order=PRICED
Heh heh, 8000 rpm and 175cfm, that'll cool anything if you can stand the noise. It also depends on the mobo but with yours I'm pretty sure it'll hit the pump with 2 fans. There are other ways though, you can get some long screws with nuts and washers, put one outside the case and one in, you'd have to put something in the gap though. If I had to choose I'd say pull, rad>fan>case.
You know though the most efficient radiator cooling method is with shrouds. Like this baby: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/92...tl=g30c429s163
You don't have to buy one though, even putting a cardboad box around the fan will improve cooling. If it is going to be on the roof though I'd definitly have the back fan blowing in, not out, naw, you'd be messing up the airflow, too much positive pressure, then I think a push would be best, make sure you're cooling off the edges of the rad, not just the fins. Definitely need a stronger fan though.

No, you're logo & pump aren't upside down. Mindy's is: Oh, forgot, those pics are on my computer.

Actually just came on to see if anyone answered my jumper question wire, no one did so I googled it, it's right here on OCN: http://www.overclock.net/faqs/96712-...upply-psu.html Hmm, maybe I'll make up a wire.

Gotta go fill my loop and burp it, wish me luck, cross your fingers, say a prayer or whatever your beliefs allow.

Hey check it out, they actually sell this thing: http://www.frozencpu.com/psu-173.html

Now you got me thinking about installing a shroud.

If anyone is using shrouds, an image would be helpful, because looking at the one from FrozenCPU, I cannot see where/how an installation would fit. The acrylic shroud looks pretty wide between rad & fan.

I think the only way I could have it fit in my case is:
[Fan][Rear of Case][Rad][Shroud][Fan]

But I wonder (keeping in mind I am still new to water cooling), is it okay for the rad to directly attach to the case. I would assume then the aluminum rear panel would absorb heat from the radiator.

Have a look. Logo correctly orientated and nice clean routing of tubes.
It looks like the tubes are touching the video card but they are not.

Drumrolls please! I did not get to paint the fans today, but here you go! Four hours of work with very basic and crude tools, but I feel so accomplished!
