Watercooling guide and help thread. - Page 8

What cases are recommended to hold at least a 480 rad without modding? I heard of Silverstone Temjin series, Mountain Mods, Case Labs, and Little Devil. There is also the XSPC H2 Martin mentioned. I would like the case to have wheels instead of lifting it most of the time.

H2 has quality issues from all the people who got one

and its not something one would expect on a case that expensive.

Little Devil is probably the most expensive, but they are custom made, and i feel worth almost every penny.,

Case Lab is showing to be a nice case, but looks too much serverish... if i wanted something like that, id just go back to a rack.

MM = quality is not there as it used to be in the old days.

TJ-07 very tough to find...

I currently have a custom CPU only loop with a swiftech 655 pump, XPSC 5.25 single bay reservoir, Apogee-XT CPU block and a Koolance 2x140 rad I have 2 140mm fans on the rad with push only. The CPU is running at 4.6 and under full load is under 60.

I want to add my 6950 GPU to this loop. Will this loop cool the CPU and GPU? If not what suggested upgrades?

A lot of those water cooling optimised cases have some of the most asinine means of holding on the sides that I've ever seen.

Personally, I'd get a TJ07 or TJ11, the TJ11's are a little expensive though.

Case Labs are also awesome but can cost an arm and a leg if you get all the necessary things, like HDD cages and 5.25" bays.

Mountain Mods are kind of... eh. They're awesome, but CaseLabs is way better IMO.

I've also heard about the H2 not being of that high grade of quality.

All of this too.

Yeah, it could be handled but I'd recommend getting another rad in there somewhere. I'd get another 280mm radiator or 240mm radiator.

I'd have the 140 at the back pulling air in and the 240 up top and 200 at the front pushing air out.

If you pull air in through the 200 is makes the 240 perform worse as it's using recycled warm air.

I'd take the side panel off if that works for you.

^-^

Hi, could you explain what it means to maintain a loop? Im thining about getting a RASA kit but have not sure whether to just cool my CPU or both CPU and GPU. What do you reckon? I was gonna get the MSI 3gb gtx 580 lightning extreme so i doubt that would be worth getting if i water cooled it?

Thanks

1st, I'd highly recommend getting your GPU under water, it makes life so much better, so much quieter.

It's quite low maintenance, fill it up, drop your silver in there and in about 6-7 months, drain and refil, well, that's what I do. I do a drain and refil every 6-7 but you can do it muuuuuch later then that. I've heard people essentially getting their loop and "forgetting" about it for up to 2 years.

It's quite low maintenance, just keep and eye on the water level and keep it topped up.
