I am considering doing a full loop on my Core 500 as well if ever I find the time. I wonder though how hard it will be on my case. I have seen someone done it, looks like it will be a lot of work.

I really dig your loop and not putting any dye in there I think is a good call.

how tall are those RAMS? I was under the impression that the Nano S will not run to these issues.

They are too tall to clear the fans, so I trimmed the corners off the fans to clear them. And trimming those fan corners - the top corner is still intact but no screw - opens up a lot of potential in these cases. The 280 in front on push (I did have to move the case divider over about 1/2" to get that 280 GTS in there) and the 240 GTS in the top really does a great job keeping the temps in check.

I run the fans off the temp probe in the GPU block, you can just see it above the PSU, and looping Heaven at 5GHz CPU/2100MHz GPU never got above 39C. Just killer performance, and that was with the side panel on.




And yeah, no color or dye. My case doesn't even have a window on this side, nobody will ever see the inside but you guys.

If winning were easy, losers would do it.

Honestly, if I were to water cool with my Core 500, I'd just go external rad/pump/res with only the blocks on the inside with a few quick disconnects to make bleeding easier.

But that's mostly so I could use a either a MORA or a 480/560 rad with 1200rpm or lower fans and keep a 6600k/1080ti cool and quiet, and moving the pump and louder fans farther away from me than the case or make some sound dampening baffles to really kill the noise.

Death Bomb Finished.

I finished up the last few things on this build. I did a similar thing on my Corsair 550D, the open top when running a radiator up top looked unfinished, so I cut the top panel to allow just the rad area to be open and then glued a screen in the opening.

Here's the same treatment on the Nano S top panel.
Here it is open. Just looks unfinished and hot air coming up the right side gets sucked right back into the rad.



Here it is after I cut the hole and added the screen. There's a small neo magnet on the left rear corner, and the front two tabs are still in place to hold the front down. All the other tabs had to be removed.



A pic showing the new rivet locations where I had to move the internal divider plate over about 1/2" to accommodate the GTS 280 front radiator. Dust filter still in place.




I can also fit a 240 filter in the top now, under the modified top panel.





Complete.



Inside



This unassuming little mITX rig is currently in 9th place globally in Fire Strike Ultra for single card (my name on the leader board is Simpleton, my user name here brought up some strange results, only some of them were mine)

http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/19625107

And would be in 2nd place single card in Unigine Heaven (only beat by a 6950X rig) here if the leader board was ever updated.

I posted some pics of the build/internals in This Post.

I really like the build, this is my third Fractal Design case and all of them have just turned out great.

Any fellow Node 605 owners out there? What are your temps like? I knew this case would be a tad hotter. With my noctua 14s cooler and gpu running my CPU temps go to about 70*C, that's without an overclock on a delided i7 6700k intel processor. Bit toasy, but I think I'm butting up against the capabilities of the case.

I have one as my HTPC, but it's configured for quiet non-OCd 24/7 operation as opposed to trying for any performance. I added a case fan where you did, blowing on the CPU cooler, and made the fan next to that on also intake, then put the one on the other side as exhaust.

There are some pics in This Thread with the other stuff I used - the fan by the CPU cooler wasn't installed yet, I ended up using a 3 pin Noctua 120mm, I can never keep the models straight.

If winning were easy, losers would do it.

Gotcha, nice build. I'm hoping to get a mild overclock on both my CPU and GPU while keeping temps under 75*. The two 95mm Noctua fans are the exhaust and side fans will be intakes, I've bought another Noctua 120mm fan to fill that blank spaces. It's definitely the case because when I take off the lid and let it run my temps go from 70*C at load to 54*C, which makes me think the hot air isn't getting vented out well enough. I need to make a better fan profile for the exhausts and continue to test (My goal is silent PC as-well, so good fan profile is a must).

I'll post some pictures when the build is finish, just got some custom cables and I think it all should look well and tidy once I'm finished with it.

Stick another fan on the left front spot (looking from the front) as exhaust and try to suck some more hot air out. I came to the same conclusion as you did - the heat just wasn't getting out.

Ok, will give that a shot and report back.

@ Coldsnap
My Node 605 is sitting in the TV-bench.
Quite narrow spaces.
It got a i5-6600K (overclocked with some 25%) ASUS Maximus VIII Gene mATX Motherboard. 1x MSI GTX 970 GPU (blower) 1x250GB SSD+1x2TB HDD+1xslim ODD.
(The Living room comp in my signature)

Having 3 Noctua 120mm fans for air intake+PSU on the sides, while the hot air are exhausted rearward by PSU+GPU+2x80mm fans.

The comp stays silent and cool during HTPC-work, but fans is noticeable but not disturbing, when gaming and the temperature of the rises to around 50-60 degrees C.

Edit: Having a Noctua CPU Tower cooler with a 92mm fan pushing hot air towards the rear and the twin 80mm fans, while feeded by the 120mm fans with cool air...
Replaced all Fractal Design fans with Noctua ditto's for PWM control by the motherboard.
