why thank you, i do have some other posts a few pages back as well. and after looking at your pics, im tempted to my fans like that for my 240, how were your tempts affected by changing the fan setup?

@Castscythe-Lol! I Wasn't doubting that you had a HAF 922 mate, i just wanted to be sure before i gave my 2 cents worth smile.gif


Ok here goes:

1) it seems to me that you have enough space to mount your rad inside your case-i might be wrong, but looking at your photos, you can mount the rad inside and just have the fans in either push or pull configuration on top-that will give you a much neater rig-no outer tubing, and no huge rad on top, just the fans-for an idea look at my builders log(http://www.overclock.net/t/1223466/my-first-watercooling-rig-hope-for-all-haf-922-owners-who-dont-fancy-doing-too-much-case-modding)

2) A couple more of your cables could do with a little bit more thought when it comes to routing, that will give you a neater rig (once more lol) and increase your air flow thumb.gif

Apart from that good job m8- and you get extra brownie points for actually attempting to wc a HAFF 922-i know @ 1st hand the work that goes into wcing such a case.

Hope that i have possibly given you some ideas to play with -after all as i said earlier, im not into critisising other peoples hard work-there are enough 'professional' trolls out there as it is smile.gif

well, as far as the internal mounting option goes, when i measured it all out it was really (like about the thickness of a small coin... about as thick as a penny) close to my ram, however, hopefully i will go push pull as you suggested (mounting two more fans onto the rad from inside the case), my only issue for that atm is that i need to choose whether i want to either a) get two more scythe fans for matching specs b) get two more uv reactive fans to match the two im adding to the interior of the case (http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=36_221&products_id=24962 ), or c) using the two fans that came with the rx240 as the interior fans... but currently all options are moot because i dont have 8 more screws to attach them with XP, and i havent tried to figure out a way to do it with cable ties yet XD. in the meantime though, if i can order some more of the purple coolant (i dont want to use the dye instead.... the dye i would have to use to achieve the same color has a bad habit of gunking and clogging). i will take it all down and perhaps drill the holes in the top of the case required to mount it on top w/o using the holes im currently using, but i will try to fit it with the ports closer to the res (like your buildlog), and if i can i will go for that. as far as cable management goes, it will all be redone soon (im buying a 1000w modular psu from a friend, so i will have to redo it when that gets here anyway XP). at this stage i just want to get the 6870 under as well, then add the new psu, and when i add the psu do a complete rebuild and try to fit everything internally and install push/pull configs for the 240 and 120 rads. also during said rebuild i might paint the inside of the case (not powdercoat, but maybe uv paint), as well as *hopefully* adding a window to my other panel so i can run it all with the panels on it again. watercooling this case has certainly been interesting, but on the upside it has at very least kept me thinking XP.

one more thing... i might have to switch to compression fittings, or at least add a few to make routing the tubing around a bit more easy. as far as tubing goes, it will probably end up going something like this = pump out to 240mm like it currently is (unless i can move it into the case), then rad to cpu in, then cpu out to gpu in (or to 120mm rad in the bottom, i havent decided yet... i dont mind using more tubing an have a tube or two cross rolleyes.gif) then from gpu out to rad in to rad out to res in (or from cpu > 120 rad > right side fitting on the card out the left side > res if the cpu goes to the rad instead on the card.)... as you can probably see im still throwing around ideas and sketching them up along with the other projects on my plate (building a router and NAS to replace my dying router and prebuilt tiny nas drive, along with modifying the closet its all housed in to correctly cool everything) , so i have until i can order the new block rad tubing coolant screws and maybe fans in about 2 weeks depending on a few other factors XD

So I want to start water cooling. My objective is to get something looking this nice. I'm a noob and don't know anything. Is this going to take a while to learn or is it easy to get something this nice?

Wow that is a nice loop, the switch 810 makes water-cooling a dream. To answer you question yes you can make a clean loop like this. Select a clean, water-cooling friendly case and just use you head and pre-plan everything don't be afraid to start over if you don't like it.

ok well I got the 300R and 650D + HAF 912. Which is the best?
post #19340 of 77079
650d would be the cleanest case I hate the 912 and the 300r seems cheap.
