post #7691 of 15859
would it be safe to say that it is ok if I was to solder the standard fan cables (assuming 24AWG) to 18AWG cables? Or would I be better off just making 18AWG Extensions? Would 3x 18AWG fit within MDPC sleeving? I am using 140mm Fractal Fans.

sorry if this is a little off topic.

Define R4 or Arc Midi R2, I am going to be getting one of these two cases, but i am having a tough time deciding, if i get the Arc Midi R2 i can mount a H100i in the top in push-pull and have a AF140 in rear as exhaust, if i get the Define R4 i would go with the H80i at the rear in push-pull and have two AF140's up top as exhaust fans, which would be the best way to go. Thanks: Mick

I prefer the R2 and would scrap the H100i and go for the H220 instead.

Ordered one myself :-) Thanks for the heads up...
post #7696 of 15859
Hello,

Recently found out this forum and im very pleased with all the info and guides that are here. Im planning to get a Core 3000 usb3 in about a month. So from what i read here it has to some level good cable management, is that so and is there a cutout for the 8-pin cable, because some state that there isnt, others that there is such. For now im not planning OC or watercooling.

Thanks,
Core 3K

Got my R4 (black, window) 2 weeks ago. Got myself a WC kit (240 rad) and was just waiting for the tubing + some extra's to arrive.

Got the last stuff today hurray!

Because of the thickness of my radiator I can only mount it in front of the case, I am planning to build it this saturday but I had a quick question as a beginner!



Ignore my paint skillz please biggrin.gif

I got my fans sucking air into the case, into the rad. My eheim pump is directly connected to the reservoir.

The water goes into the pump (from the res) to the cpu. Water comes out of the CPU to the rad, then the water goes from the rad to the res then pump etc. Just want a final check before I build it. Is this the right way?

After its done I'll post the pics ofcourse!

Ok. So I Haven't built a system in a long time. I was hoping to do some sleeving on this rig but haven't found the time and went straight to putting it together.

Fractal Core 1000 USB 3.0
Intel 3570K
ASRock Z77 Extreme4-M
MSI R7850 Twin Frozr 2GD5
Silencer MK III 500W Modular (partially modular)
Corsair Vengeance White (can't see them, they're under the heatsink)
1 TB Caviar Black






I was really worried about the CPU cooler not fitting because it would come too close to the PSU if you mounted pointing up, and pointing down is not recommneded by manufacturer. Pointing it back towards the mobo plate made the mobo nearly impossible to install so I had to remount and point it towards the front. To my surprise it didn't interfere with the vertically mounted HDD (1 TB caviar black). The cooler's fan also blows air onto the mobo and its nice that it can hang over the ram (low profile ram, but I've read that the standard vengeance model will fit underneath, but not sure).





The stock GeminII came with a 120 mm fan so I swapped it with a 140 mm Bitfenix, WHITE. I planted the original fan onto the side plate. biggrin.gif Put a Fractal R2 92 mm in the back, so all the fan slots are occupied (and it sounds like an air conditioner, but I don't care).





So, excuse me if it seems sloppy to you guys but I'm happy with it and most importantly it's running the games. Maybe at a later date I'll pull it apart and start sleeving wink.gif

As long as you have the res feeding the coolant straight into the pump (which you do), the order of the rest of the loop doesn't matter. Build away my friend.
