First watercooling attempt ! Any advices ? - Page 2

If I were you I would mod the top of the case to fit the 360 radiator internally. Have it has exhaust with the front and rear fans as intake.

Much cleaner look. Also, I would not use a fill line. Just leave a little bit of slack in the hoses connected to the reservoir so it can be pulled about 2" out of the front of the case. Then you can simply use a funnel to fill the reservoir from the front.

Just wondering why you are trying to cool a setup without a graphics card that needs cooling.

Budget loop. It rather costly right now.

Well i dont want to do major mods. Actually a 240 doesnt fit because of the motherboard. I may go with forgetting the refill line, it isnt actually needed but would be cool so its either the fan controller or the refill.

Thanks for your comments.

Alright, i checked with someone and definitivly the fan controller even with a facade would lead into problems with fittings for the reservoir. Also, i already bought the DVD Writter so changing it isnt an option. So from now i have two option.

Option #1.
- Forget about the additionnal fan controller, use speed reducer to quiet down the other fans. 4 radiator fan on the controller and reducing internal fans using low-noise adapter. I could also use an internal 3.5 fan controller.. since this is only to control the internal fan and put it in the 3.5 bay of an HDD, wonder if it would mount in the HDD.
- Remove the top big fan and put two 120MM fans and then do the refill spot on top like i planned with a 90 degree rotator and G1/4 adapter for the RASA reservoir thread.

OR

Option #2.
- Get a fan controller in front.
- But forget about the refilling system, i could simply avance the reservoir to refill it.

What would you do ? To me first option seem better. What do you think ?

Thanks.

Already ordered the RS360. If i had more cash i would go RX360 but it was 50$ more and i am only doing a CPU loop for now. That would be overkill.

It fits fine, I have the same mobo and I have a 600T right beside me. When you tried to fit it, did you put the fans in-between the metal and the mesh on the top, with the radiator underneath?

It won't fit with the fans directly attached to the radiator, only if they are in that separate spot.

To mod it for a 360 radiator is very easy, all you have to do is cut a hole for the fan in that last part of the metal/plastic bit on the top. I can draw up a picture if you want.

Are you kidding me ? lol ive been told by many person that the rad wouldnt fit because of the 8 pins connector on the asus p8p67 motherboard.

If i had the choice i would go with a 240 rad mounted inside. Oh well.. i will receive my RASA kit today so i will get a look at how i will mount it then.

From what you just said..

1- Do the DVD drive i have at the first bay will collide with the 360 rad if i put one there ?

if yes i may be able to put the drive above a bit.. then would have

bay 1: Facade fan controller
bay 2: DVD
bay 3: Reservoir
bay 4: Reservoir

Also what did you used to cut the hole ? just curious ive never done that before lol a little picture may be helpful too.

Thanks for the tip.

Actually, now that I have measured it exactly I have found that it does not fit . While it's very close (<1mm) it won't fit. You could mod the radiator quite easily to allow it to fit if you wanted though - just take a jigsaw and carefully cut a chunk out of the side of the radiator (not the core, just a tiny divot in the piece of metal that the fans screw into). This would allow the radiator to be fitted internally.

The DVD drive would collide with the 360 radiator.

I haven't actually modded the 600T but I know by careful measuring that it would be easily possible. I have done radiator mods on other cases (such as my 800D) and a jigsaw is by far the best tool. I could do the 600T mod in less than 20 minutes with one.

If you are still interested I can draw up some pictures on how to mod the radiator and the case.
