Hey, sign me up.

I just set up my first ever water cooling loop. It was a "okay" experience though I'm loving the temp drop from my cpu and gtx470.

Also don't worry about those air bubbles, that was just me leak testing with a different psu. It works great

@Jamanious

I haven't takin the plunge into full watercooling yet but will it be better to flip your rad around and drill two holes in your case to lose 6-12 inches of tubing and save some space in the rear of your case?

Looks great buddy

Believe me I wanted that rad in there, It was a misscalculation on my part, originally I had planed for the rad to be inside but it's way to thick, If I had gone for a 120mm rad It would have panned out better, but me in my inexperience chose the larger 140mm rad without consulting OCN believing it would fit, reason being the fan that fits there is a 140mm. however the distance between the side of the case and motherboard panel(? not sure thats the right term) is ever so slightly smaller than the rad.

If I had the funds I would put it right, well maybe, I'm just stoked it all works.

Also the rad's barbs go out way to far, I'm not sure there would have been a way for me to right it without getting some 90 degree fittings.

Edit: also, I'm not one for modding (little mechanical experience/if it works fine I'm happy)

How come I'm the only one that thought to put the radiator in un-used space where it would not be crowding anything.

Here are a couple pictures because I am quite proud of my ingenuity.

while it is a good soultion, you are not the first to do that. :-P

there are several other builds in this thread that have similar rad mounting solutions. ;-)

yeah, I guess I should have looked through the other 2300+ posts before I said that. I didn't really think I was the first, but I am surprised that I have never seen another like it. Off to look for one now.

This would be reason enough for me not to put a rad there.
