watercooling setup in an antec p180 case. Other questions too. - Page 3

post #21 of 32
Now that's a way to do it... I like how you moved the gear around--I would not want to cut that nice case either--I like the Rad-hanger idea from Swifty--still keeps it as a movable unit but eliminates the need for a shroud and frees up your interior for tubing and so on. The Pump could probably fit in there without totally blobking airflow to the mobo. It is not entirely necessary to have a resevoir--as you can fill and bleed the air from the system loop using a T or some other means (gravity and two unconnected tubes would get you close) and have one less component.

You think your case is cramped--I'm working out a mod for a Centurion 541 MicroATX case--if I can get all the WC bits in that tiny case I am sure you will find a way with that big ol P180!

ahh right so the reservoir is a place where you can fill up the system. I read the watercooling guide on here and the T valve / tube sounds like a good idea - does this completely replace the need for a reservoir then?

EDIT - im confused on what to do now. Do i go with the full H220 ultra + kit and try to fit everything in that way, or do i go with the drive bay reservoir which means id have to buy everything separate - and it will probably end up costing more. I read that the reservoir replaces the T line, so i kinda answered my own question there.

In the set up pictures i have seen of the swiftech ultra + the reservoir has been installed high up, but not right at the top of the case. If you look here the reservoir is kinda midway up the case above the pump, which lies at the bottom of the case:



i thought the reservoir had to be right at the top of the case, at the highest point above all tubing etc?

Alright, how about we think outside the box to fit his system inside the box....

Let us imagine that h could get a small pump....something not quite as large as that swiftech monstrosity. As some of you know, my pump recently took a dive and i was able to purchase one of these

The mag 2 pump at the same site has toughly the same dimensions as well. That puppy could be fit pretty much anywhere....

The location he emptied for the pump could easily contain a 120 MM rad. That is the easy part....

There is no reason for a chipset block with that motherboard.....You can;t change the chipset voltages form stock, so as long as you keep at least a little air moving, you will be alright.

If you forewent the VGA block, you would only need a single rad solution...i hear that there is a new, more densely packed black ice that can be used for systems required to fit into a smaller form factor, however, if you simply must have the VGA block, thermaltake has a 5.25 inch radiator that will fit in a 5.25 iinch slot. I'm not sure of it's performance, but there should be a couple reviews out there.

And here is the ultimate space saving tip......forget the resivoir. go for a T-line rather than a full-on resivoir. It saves lots and lots of space, and, @ least to me, it's a heck of alot easier to use. if yo do decide to go this route, i'll give you som pointers on how to make it much easier.

I have no concerns over anything but the radiator. I'm trying to figure a way to mount a 120.2 internally.

Well, I have a P180 case, and what I'm planning to do is mount a 77 bonneville heatercore in the two space 5.25 CD drive bays that are unsed on the top of my case. What im looking for is a cheap well built and powerful pump to fit in my top drive bay.

well, have a look at this. it is a P180 case with a dual 120mm rad on the top of the case. cost? about $275.00 at performance-pcs.com



another view:



my current setup is this:

-Swiftech MCP655â„¢ 12 VDC Pump
-Swiftech HydrX Coolant
-2x Yate Loon 120mm Silent Case Fan - D12SL-12 - Sleeved
-Swiftech STORM Extreme Performance Universal Water-block - Rev 2
-Swiftech MCW60â„¢ Graphics Card Liquid Cooler with MC14 BGA Ramsinks
-RadGrillzâ„¢ Stripes 2x120 Aluminum Black ACR-RG35289
-Tanky - Dual 3 1/2" Bay Reservoir - Clear
-5' of Tygon 3603 1/2" ID Clear Tubing
-Swiftech Radiator - MCR220 Quiet Power Series Dual 120 mm - Black

all inside a Antec SOLO case. let us know your budget, cause this setup only costed me about $330 and also includes cooling for the videocard. if you want to custom build your kit, i would suggest going to the following:
