My first water cooling build =D

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Ill be selling my old comp soon and with that money i want to start watercooling my HAF 912.

I have a few issues. First off i would like to possibly place a 240 rad at the front of the case internaly. or having a 360 outside of the case on the back useing a spacer type thingy I know its made to have a 240 at the top but id like to have mine somewhat unique and try it somewhere less generic.

Im yet to even see a picture of a HAF 912 with water cooling. if someone can link a picture of one mounted internally that would be awesome.

P.S. not new to modding so if it requires a bit of tweaking of the case it shouldnt be a problem.

I was considering where to place an external 360 rad on my case, too. Thinking of attaching it to the place where my rear exhaust used to be (gaping hole now) using hacked up old fans as spacers. There are a few gaps in my plan, but I would need to have the parts in hand to figure it out. Seems viable, though.

Edit: Just browsed the gallery a bit, and it seems a lot of people use long bolts with nuts to set distance.

You will probably have to go with an external mount mid-tower cases are rough to fit thick rads in some thinner rads work but it depend on your set up. Its hard to say until your have your normal air cooled system in and can grab measurements from the different areas of the case so see where you can squeeze in a rad.

I am also considering the 912 for a watercooled build, and my thoughts were to utilize the grommets on the back of the case for an external radiator mounted on a Phobya bracket. I will either put the bracket on a shelf or mount it to the wall. This keeps most of the heat out of the case, and allows you to move the rad around when you are filling the system. It also makes for easier rad upgrades and draining.

...my two cents

I just looked at the back of the 922...you could probably hang a RX240 using a Swiftech Radbox...the tubes just might line up.
