mATX watercooling - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Thread Starter 
Atm, I'm looking at 1090t and a 6970, eventually I'll be grabbing another 6970 which is where the problems are going to happen using a single 240. That's a good idea about taking out the drive bays, I probably wouldnt need more than 1 or 2 and I could always floor mount those or use the 5.25" bays. Arc Midi seems like a decent case too, although I can't remember the dimensions for the Mini anymore haha. I would like to keep this as small as possible while still having a lot of cooling ability.

Edit: I'm blind, that does have 7 expansion slots. My bad. I'm looking for something smaller than that tho.

As for as mATX watercooling you're going to have to do a fair bit of stuffing. Few mATX cases will readily accept more than a 240mm rad without a decent amount of modding.

The one that invariably comes to mind is the NZXT Big & Ugly.

With a bit of effort though you can put 360mm worth of rad in many mATX designs. I've seen it personally in the Silverstone Sugo 3 and Antec Mini P180.

There's always the Lian Li A05N route. While not mATX it is quite compact, and if built out with a mATX board will take a full 720mm of rad.
