Here it is anyway, sorry for crappy drawing but I think it describes the overall situation.

Could you maybe take apart a drive bay from something else, and screw one on the inside and then again on the outside to extend it? Kind of like this:


Code:
========-----

|     -----

Where the -'s represent new pieces, cut off and screwed in... If that makes it any easier to understand? Not everybody has access to an old drive bay, but it shouldwork if done properly... You'd probably need a hacksaw...

You know, on second thoughts, I'm going to pretend I haven't just suggested this. If you want to do it, go right ahead, but I'm not going to guarantee anything. It's the sort of thing I'd be tempted to try, but wouldn't necessarily rely on.

Here's a few updated photo's of my machine.

I cleaned up the cables and it looks much better than before. Still not as good as some of your efforts but im happy for a first build. It definitely made life easier spinning the hard drives around. There's heaps of room at the front and holes to let the cables pass through. If I had black SATA cables you might not notice them. I also changed the rear fan from 80mm to 92mm and added some heatsinks to the mosfets on the motherboard so I can overclock higher.

So far its going sweet. It's a little noisy with 4 case fans ( 1x92mm zalman, 2x120mm zalmans and a 120mm coolermaster), but the airflow is pretty good. There does seem to be a warm spot just below the cooler so i might add a spot fan to cool the NB a little better.

My camera doesn't quite pick up the colours properly, especially the UV LEDs. They are a much darker purple color and the case fans are a pretty standard red.

There's a before shot and a few more updated shots. Let me know what you think.

I plan to get a gtx 580 and h70 so I would like to ask if this will fit just fine and if the h70 tube will not be stretch too much?

Can THERMALRIGHT ULTRA-120 TRUE BLACK fit on the vulcan?
post #426 of 2409
well i finally finished by build.... took quite a bit of re-doing until i got it all in correctly. i was afraid that my w/c solution wouldn't be "all internal" but i was pleasantly mistaken
i'll post pics later.

I honestly don't know, it's a bit big and it might matter what motherboard you're using? Look at the socket and see how much room there is on it? If it goes much past the motherboard, there probably won't be room, as I understand it, the motherboard mounts very close to the top of the case?

(Someone who currently has one and would like to check to confirm would be welcome here)

I recall reading somewhere that someone had done it, but that it was very awkward. The h50 has a longer tube and so you'd find it easier to fit, I think.

Got my new Maximus III Installed...

Had to flip PSU upside down as the 8 pin plug didn't reach so i'll need to get and extension for that.

I think I'll need to get some new thermal paste too as the stuff that comes with a stock intel heatsink is not very good as the i3 idles at 50C but luckily only gets to 54C after and hour of crysis.





Also a warning to anyone getting this board; the bottom left screw hole is really close to the xfi chip, and when i put the screw in it dug into the silver cover of the chip so i had to use a smaller headed screw.
