[Work in Progress] Storm Scout + Rasa RX360 = Win!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello all, it has been quite some times since I have dived into a WC setup, and with the building of my recent rig and having a Megahalems I am not totally satisfied and would love to build out a WC loop for starters my CPU and then eventually both GPUs.

UPDATES

04/01/2011
I will be moving into my apartment within the next couple weeks
The parts for the kit come Monday I will pick up my Hole saw then, but I will have to wait until I am moved in before tackling this Project




To accomplish this goal I will be purchasing the Rasa RX360 Kit along with better and more visually appealing Primo Tubing and some Gentle Typhoons to boot.

I have spent the last 20 minutes staring at my Scout and trying to decide what would be the best way to mount this beast of a rad in or on my case.

Mounting Options:

Internal
Sacrifice the 5.25 drive bays and install the Radiator into the front of the case. Move the SSDs to the right side panel and mount the 1TB drive elsewhere.

The only issue this brings is now where to mount the included Res and Pump which is meant for a 5.25 Drive bay x2. This could be resolved with a custom built loop with a different Res and Pump. (But at what cost $)?

External

Rear Mounting
The case itself is 17 inches tall the rad is 16.1 inches tall. The radiator would have to stick out from the top of the case (IDK if I like this or not)

Which Rad box should I use?

Where should I route the Inlet/outlet into the case? Solved
PCI slot? (Will that sized tubing fit?) Solved
Cut holes in Exhaust fan port? Solved
Cut holes next to the PCI slots where the mesh is? Solved

Top Mounting
Any Ideas? Not doing this

I ordered my parts and I also made up a little diagram of how I want to lay this out.




Here is the diagram (feel free to comment)
