Just as a comment....there's already a 420 rad mounted in the top (and yes the 280 does fit in front).. and it won't have any HDDs so really not at all worried about losing a drive bay. Problem with the front rad mount is that will need to stick through the planned PSU shroud.

Advantage of this one is an easier to construct front to back 'PSU' shroud, better airflow, better temps and ability to run short hidden cabling from the PSU. It also opens up the case a bit where the pump + res goes.
Anyway am still tossing up if it's worth it.

You will maybe see a 1-3C temp difference, in my opinion it isn't worth it, but it is an interesting idea.

Yes something like that, bit more I'd say - but nothing life changing :-)

With my current Define Nano S, the front CPU rad heated up the GPU top rad by about 2-5C depending on CPU load.. but that was only 100W max if that (a 4690K @ 4.5Ghz / 1.14V). Running a game and opening the case is an immediate 4C drop. Anyway not totally comparable but still.

Most of the top rad should get pretty fresh air. Anyone has this type of setup?

(bottom fan should be upside down..it's an intake)

Will there be a build log? I am very interested in your take.

My 4.5Ghz 5820K disagrees with you and I've never had to check it for leaks. drool.gif

Money is far better spent on better gear than water.

We can still be friends.cheers.gif

Why do you even use a case? A cardboard box gets the job done and you can save that money for better gear! /s

I like pretty things.

I like a black winowless performance case.

You want silence and high performance, you pay the price, but you get to have a pretty view of watercooled bits

You want high performance and less cost, your ears pay, and it doesn't look nearly as good.

Silence is a fallacy of water. Components still generate the same heat which requires dissipation with fans. I promise an air rig can be just as quiet as water. I have 8 140mm fans and its silent. I can hear my hard drives over my fans.

Water sure is pretty though, especially the custom stuff. Some of the rigs in here are beautiful! thumb.gif
