New setup advice...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm completely new to watercooling, so forgive me if I say something totally stupid...

The basis of my system is listed below, with two exceptions... I got my Lian Li PC-75 case in today, and should be getting my second 7900GTX in tomorrow. I decided to change cases because, even though I can manage to get everything into the P180, and I love the case overall, it's still a tight fit, which gives me a bit high temps on air cooling. I know that my temps will lower once I move to the Lian Li case, because the air flow will be so much better, but I am considering switching over to water cooling.

I'd love to be able to install a good water block on my CPU with a couple of Dangerden NV78s on my GPUs (confirmed to work with the 7900GTX)

Unfortunately, I have a few problems...

1. I can't use an external water cooling solution without modding the case, which I would prefer not to do, because all 7 of my external slots are being used (5 by the 7900GTXs, 1 by the UPS, and 1 by the SB X-Fi), so I am looking for an internal cooling solution, preferably with a front bay tank/monitor.

2. The case has only 80mm fan mounts, which I think pretty much leaves me out on the TT BW 745, since I have no idea where I would mount the radiator. In fact, I have no idea at all where I would mount a secondary radiator at all.

3. Every internal bay solution that I have seen either has a lot of people saying that it has low flow, or they generally require a secondary radiator.



Any of you gurus have any suggestions? I'm a little depressed about this, after having looked deeper, and I'm starting to think that I may have to mod the case to ever have decent liquid cooling

you could always run your tubes out inbetween your gfx cards. I don't think any bay solution would be able to cool the system you have.

I think your best solution would be to devise a way to get the tubes out the case and get a swiftech radbox (will mount to the existing 80mm fan holes) and then get a double rad mounted on the back of your case. the only modding you'd have to do (if any) would be to get your tubes out of your case.

Excellent suggestion, IMO. Reps for you.

He could buy a nibbling tool at Radio Shack, and easily make two holes for tubing.
