Bottom 1x140 radiator in 800D

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have a 800D with a 360 xchanger rad in top, but want to add a 1x140 rad to get better cooling. I want to add this new radiator on top of the bottom intake fan. I have reversed the rear fan as intake and uses the left fan on 3x120 rad as intake and middle and right fan as exhaust.

The bottom radiator has to be less than 3,5 cm thick to avoid conflict with my mobo and it must fit into the fan mounting and not cover the tube-holes next to the fan. I have found that the "Black Ice® GTS Gen Two Xtreme 140 Highest Performance Radiator" fits my needs quite well, except I might have to cut a hole in the plastic box in front of the hard drives to the bottom right but that is ok.

I just want to check if anyone have any comments or advice against this setup before I order the radiator. As you can see from the drawing I am cooling cpu, mosfets, nb/sb, gpu (5970) and i am not planning any extreme overclocking.

I know that this loop is quite restrictive but I want to see how it works out and if i get bad flow through the loop i will consider adding a pump in serial or splitting into two loops. Most people seem to think that the eheim xt ultra can push through this setup without problems.

Hi. I came across this thread while doing a search. I'm planning to WC my 700D case when I upgrade to a P79 board.

What did you decide to do regarding the bottom radiator?

I know lots of guys like to mod their 700D/800D case by taking out the bottom drive cage, but I actually need that space to mount one drive and possibly a second one in the future.

Thanks,
