Couple questions for you guys about water cooling with this case.

Will this case hold Monsta 80mm radiators? I was wondering if I could put two 280 Monsta's underneath in front of my dual PSU setup and another 480 Monsta on the top. These 3 radiators would use a push
fan setup.



this is a 60mm in p/p. I would highly advise against MoNsTa rads in the bottom of this case, unless you are only putting one set of fans on them, & those are skinny fans, which then defeats the purpose of 80mm rads. This will be dual PSU eventually. this picture is just a mock-up. It should give you an idea of how little tubing & wiring space you will have with even 60mm thick rads. Judging by the lack of space, I would say 140x rads can not fit in the bottom sideways.

Boss man just thinking out loud here but you might want to remove that fan on the back there next to the PSU. Just me thinking outloud and it will not make that big of a difference on temps with one fan gone.

I'm probably going to have to remove pretty much all of the rear fans to make space for wiring & tubing. See, I ordered these rads when I thought Riv:BE would be out a month ago. They were literally the only 480 rads in stock. So, I had to make do with what was available. I'm now pissed I spent the money a month ago because new low profile rads have come available since. OwellZ, i'm not made of money, so I have to make do with what I have this time around. I MAY pickup ONE new 480, and try to resell this one for 3/4 of the value, but only if I become extremely pissed with the way things are turning out. With the high speed typhoons i'm using it will likely make next to no difference.

Skupples, I feel you are underestimating the space behind your rad there. With my Monsta in push/pullpull with fans on an 8 way splitter as well as an mcp35x on its heatsink, there is still plenty of space for tubing and wiring. In my case, one tubing line will go above the rad but that's worked out well as the aquaero flowmeter will be sitting on top of the bottom rad anyway.

Am I seeing this correctly... one loop for CPU, GPU and MOBO?

If so, why... ??

idk man, i have 10.5 cm of space with how it is right now, which is literally snug up against the PSU's. & about 1.5 cm clearance to the mid plate.

as to the post above, idk what i'm looking @ but I think my brain just exploded.

The answer to why is because!

ok time to go get rid of thanksgiving dinner.

Well then turn around your PSU so it gets air from the push/pull intake fans. That way the PSU won't have any heating issues.

That's not a half bad idea... Can you by any chance link some pics of your 900D basement?

I will take some pictures tomorrow. I will probably have to take out the motherboard for some testing before filling in the looploop so there will be some space to use my new macro lens out biggrin.gif

I bought them cause they were really inexpensive. Just make sure they are static pressure/radiator fans. Performance PCs have sale on fans Silverstone air penetrators and some fan controllers.

Btw: I got a 4930k and 2 Titans on a 480 Monsta and temps are really really good, so it's safe to say that with your configuration, you'll be just fine thumb.gif

Awesome, I am glad to hear you are having great results with just a 480 monsta! That means I can just make mine one big ass loop with two pumps! Heres my order smile.gif

Looks good! I You will need something to bury your face in when FSU rolls your Tide. biggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gif

wish I could find super fine grit sandpaper locally! Best I can find is 800. Hrmm.. I may have to pickup a few of those kits to finish my back plate mod & lap this 3930k... My only fear with lapping the 3930k is getting dust in the IHS hole.
