Cold Devil

I had an idea a long time about trying out watercooling, but I never got around to actually doing it... I was looking at graphs of which 240 radiator to buy to accompany my hardware. I scratched the idea and started looking at 280 radiators instead.. After a while I had no time for the project any more, so it got left on the shelf for a while.
I have now returned, with the idea that people said cannot be done... What idea was that you may ask, fitting a big radiator inside a case that's more or less to small for the job, without some cutting and reorganizing, but I went for it.

The components:

Hardware
Case: Fractal Design Core 1000 USB3
Motherboard: Asus Maximus VII Gene
Processor: Intel Core i7-4790K
Grapichs Card: EVGA GTX780 ACX
Memory: Corsair Vengeance Pro DDR3 2400MHz CL11
Power Supply: Corsair HX 750W
Storage: Samsung 840 240GB

Cooling
Radiator: Alphacool XT45 360

Thats all components for now. I started yesterday cutting the case to place this enormous radiator inside it:
Measured up and ready to cut!


Radiator slided in and mounted


An inside look


Mounted with PrimoChill Hex 2-Layer Rad Grillz



Next item up is the power supply mount, which will be in the front off the case. Making the PSU fit requires making a hole in the bottom of the case to fit the powercord and a "riser" for the PSU to sit on. The only problem is that I have to wait till Wednesday to see how tall the 90 degree connector is.

This will be a slow build log, so brace yourself smile.gif

Thanks!


Removed the bay cage and started doing some measurements for the PSU "riser"


Not sure if I want to go this way or mount it directly on the floor and replace the feet with some taller ones.

@Allanitomwesh, @catbuster, @Simmons572:
Thanks guys, appriciate it!

So I got my hand on a second hand EK X-RES 100 D5, the only problem that I might have with it is that the res itself is hand sanded, but I'd like it clear, so il try to fix that in the next days.

As you might see on this picture I have to cut some of the old PSU mount supports at the back of the cage so that it wont interfere with the res top.




Didn't get to cut the PSU mount as i expected, so I'l be doing that in the near future.

Thanks for the confidence, but as i stated in the first post, this will be a slow log.
As of right now i have a lot of other stuff to work on, ie my car. I have been upgrading the CPU to a i7-4790k and Corsair Vengeance Pro 2.4Ghz 2x8GB for now.
I have tried expanding my wallet, but it just seems to get smaller the further i dig into my cars engine frown.gif
