Antec 300 360+240 rad internal

post #1 of 62
Thread Starter 
Drowned Antec 300


The drowned antec 300 will be time consuming in many many ways. For starters it will involve metal work which I do not have any of the tools for and will either have to rent or borrow. Second will be prices, the current plan for the upgrade of my system is running almsot 2k and it's not fully resolved. It will be slow, and I need to find a job to pay for the final estimated $3k build. Second are the amounts and size constraints, I have to remove my dvd drive for this to even work. I'll be setting up a 360 rad and a 240 rad all inside an antec 300, along with a crosshair IV and Crossfire'd Liquid Cooled 6970's. That will be hard on this case, but I've measured and planned it all. Here is an image that is my simple plan for it.

Revised the plan, it's down below.

Now, this will take me a long time to complete but I plan to complete it.
For hard drives I'll stick to what I have now and upgrade to an SSD in the future or a set of 10k's in raid0. I'm still looking into planning things like paint and wires as I haven't got the Crosshair IV in my system yet and can't measure to cut wholes for cables and whatnot, but it will happen soon hopefully.



All in all this build has been made possible mostly by the amazing help of SaltwaterCooled. An amazing
Also, here is a link to what was my planning thread.

Temporary Case is very temporary.

MAJOR LINK
1: this is the revised, fresh start.
This is the final idea, a few tweaks will be thrown in here and there. Fan Controllers added, and the lot. But this is generally it.

Anytime mate! I learned all I know today from trial and error, as well as lurking other websites too.

Now I need a job.
I'm still debating crosshair IV or Rampage and an intel chip... :/

Haha I saw the other thread reply, just couldn't come up with a reply besides that I'll be adding a T-Splitter for draining in the future.
750lph pump enough for all this by the way?

It's the pump I already have. That's why I was wondering.

Is that the Rasa 240 kit? A lot of people like that here, I usually recommend it based on the parts, but I've never seen one myself.

That's exactly what I'm running, plus two more fans so I can have push/pull. But that' sit.
at 4ghz load for 30 minutes I was at 40C. My old air idle was 46C.
