HAF X - WaterCool Build Log

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Hey guys so I finally got all my parts and well I was able to fix me water cooling disaster like that I had posted lol. The parts that I used are the following:
HeatKiller 3.0 with AM2+ mounting plate.
XSPC RX 360 Radiator
XSPC Dual Bay Reservoir fits MCP655 Pump
MCP655B
8 feet of PrimoChill UV Blue (purchased at Koolertek.com)
Enzotech 1/2 Black Barbs(purchased at Koolertek.com)
Enzotech 1/2 Rotary Black Barbs(Purchased at Koolertek.com)
UV BLUE Clamps (purchased at Koolertek.com)

Here is the beginning of me trying to figure out how I wanted my tubing to go etc.
2011-01-06_01-50-49_634.jpg

After I configured it some more, in witch I thought I had it how I wanted, I realized that I couldn't fit all 3 fans frown.gif (big fail on me lol)
2011-01-06_01-52-09_475.jpg

I had to mount my reservoir+pump at the bottom where the hot swapable bays where at and put my Blu-Ray Drive at bottom of it.(You can see my son sitting on the back enduring this journey of mine lol)

Now this picture here is Before I had cut out the excess from block to reservoir.
2011-01-06_02-27-29_9.jpg

After excess is taken off and somewhat of final picture since from Res to Rad has some excess tube left but somehow I like that little loop in there that it has with the excess but I will probably cut some of it.

Edit: So I decided to cut the excess tubing and it's pretty nice the way it came up I think

Tell me what you guys think of this build and hopefully it helps out some people out if they think of getting a HAF X and planning to water cool or have a HAF X but are some what scared of water cooling. I will definitely post more pictures once I upgrade my HD4890 and get a water block for the new card. Thanks for checking out this build log!cool.gifcheers.gifgunner2.gif

Edit: Here is a video on how lovely it sounds once the bubbles are out of the system, how quiet it really is! Also I would like to thank Juggalo23451 for helping me out and walking me through on my first water cooling build!

Hey,

I'm also getting a RX360 to put in my HAF-X and i plan on fitting the 3 120mm fans above the radiator where the stock 200mm fan is currently.

Couldn't you just do that?

I think the problem was his drive bay reservoir. With that 3rd intake fan, I think it would have been in the way of the tubing to the reservoir, I'm not 100% sure though. I think thats what he meant when he had to mount the reservoir on the bottom.

Ah i see.

@713King - I'm really interested to see if a RX360 can be installed in a HAF-X with the 120mm fans below.

From my calculations the rad is so thick that the fans can't be put in as the motherboard is too close. I'd love to be wrong though. My ideal setup would be -

XXXXXXXX200MMXXXXXXXX XXXXXXXX200MMXXXXXXXX
RAD
XXXX120MMXXXX XXXX120MMXXXX XXXX120MMXXXXXX

Yes, you can install 3 of them and also you can keep the top two 200mm fans if you have them. I haven't installed fans yet thays why you see empty spot and mightcause confusion. I also thought the same but after putting the fan it fits perfect.
