I went watercooled for the first time about three months ago and am very glad I did. A few points:

1. Be prepared to invest a lot of time in it, at least at first. When I first got my parts I built a loop with no PC parts on my kitchen table just to get comfortable doing everything for a weekend. Then it took a few hours to install my waterblocks, a few hours to get the loop together, 24 hours of leak testing, and about two weeks of running the loop before I was really comfortable with the loop. Even so I still plan to make changes when I clean the loop (changing the order, and maybe adding compression fittings for looks). That said, based on your system I'm guessing you have time to tinker with it.

2. I would be comfortable moving my system across town, but not across the country with water in it. It may be fine but it just feels risky to me. Also, it is quite heavy so if you move your system a ton water may not be for you.

3. I think I will always watercool my PCs, I love the performance, look, and quiet it affords. Some are deterred by the cost (my loop probably cost me around $450), but when you are running a $2000 system $450 will probably not break you.

Thanks for the awnsers. Ill prolly end up going for it... I really like projects like that. when parts arrive its like christmas.

I was thinking of cosair h70 but custom loop seems more for me.

you said 24 hour leak test. now is that all installed on parts (ie motherboard) or rigged up outside of case?

You should definatly do acrylic bay cover. i got the crome uchannel at local auto part store.. it was called door trim... black would still be nice too! I really wanted white u channel but i couldnt find it anywhere.

I did about 6 hours outside of the case and 24 with everything hooked up but not powered. You need a spare PSU to power the pump.

EDIT: Where did you order that black acrylic?

cool thanks. I actually didnt have to order it online.. In my town there is a plastics store that sells every thing in plastic, acrylic and plexiglass. So i was lucky that way.

Hello,I pretty much gutted the HAF932 case and rebuilt it as clean as I could. I took out the HD bays and most of the CD drive bays. I made metal pieces to cover holes and made some pieces to cover the Power supply cables and direct air at the same time. I made the door myself and did all the white painting.

Looks very nice, color scheme is neat.
Seems a little empty though, it's too big a case for just air cooling in my mind.
Front fans are just begging for a standing front rad

All in all very nice work.

I did the stealth bay cd drive conversion. Breaking the front bays grills doesn't look good. It's an easy mod to do as long as you use a glue gun and you don't break your cd drive

Is it possible to modify HAF X to so I can install dual PSU inside??
Currently I have AX 1200 and I want to install 4x gtx 580 inside. definitely this PSU doesn't have enough power to feed the GPUs.
I have unused TJ07 that can hold dual PSU, but doesn't have enough space for 4 GPU..
