Best WaterCooling Setup without using a fan.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
My case is an SViking. I want to spend 180 or less on a WC setup. My Case it tightbetween every component. Many of the WC kits i see involve replacing my current 120mm fans with a radiator/alternative 120mm fan. There is no room for me to do this. There is not enough room between the fan and the video card. I do not have any other fans. Therefore whatever kit/custom setup i get, it cant be in one of the fan slots. Someone please help me pick out parts (USD).
Thanks in advanced.

you can always get a new case, or you can mount the radiator outside of the case
there are some fanless radiators but they wont perform as well with fans
i think thermaltake and a few other have fanless radiators but they are quite big
heres one from thermaltake:

if you look around, you should find one about $180
zalman also has a fanless kit but its around $200

Wait, I can mount it on the outside of the case? Ok, say i can, I have a 120mm fan right near the cpu blowing air out of the case. Do I just mount the radiator on the other side of the current 120mm fan? If so show me the best setup all together for 180.

You can get some of these guys instead of a RAD or heatercore:

I'm not sure how well they work though... I'm sure you would need AT LEAST 4 of them in order to be able to properly cool your system.

you pretty much mount a radiator anywhere you can put a fan depending on the size of the radiator you choose
you can drill some holes on the case if you prefer

I have the same case and I ordered the Thermaltake Big Water SE.
As you said, you can mount the radiator on the external side.
