How does the pedestal attach to the case of an s5? I just had a crazy thought I want someone to think through with me. Any ideas on how you can make the pedestal more easily attached and detached on the fly but still "somewhat" secure?
Basically I have this idea that I would have possibly 2 360 rads in the bottom and only a 240 rad in the from bay of the s5. Here is where the interesting part comes in and if anyone has done this before please link me to it.
Basically I would set up a 3way fitting after the pump with a mini valve which would send the fluid 2 different waysWhen Open:
Through the pedestal radiators then back up into the main s5 case through GPU, CPU, RAM, 240 rad, etc.When Closed
: Would bypass the pedestal and just send the fluid through the main s5 case with the 240 rad + GPU, CPU, RAM, 240 rad.
I would be using quick disconnect fittings to attach the pedestal to the s5.
The whole purpose of this is easy portability. If I go LAN with a friend I will not really need an overclock OR will not be worried about long term cooling as it's a short term thing so the 240 rad would suffice for that time and if I can disconnect the pedestal rather easily (relatively) It would make transportation much easier and more compact. It would also allow me to get the full window top option in my case as I wouldn't need any rads up there.Thoughts? Good idea? Bad? Cool?
