smicha I built 7 watercooled 980 ti in 900D with 4 radiators - 480 top, 480 bottom front, 240 bottom back, 240 front. But quality of 900D - especially backplate - is so thin that heavy waterblocks almost bent it. Finally I moved all hardware to TT Core X9 with 3x480 rads. Anyway enjoy the view wink.gif

mikedin I know this thread has been around for a few years but I've recently decided to do a build and have been looking at build logs of the 900D to see if I would like it and this build is absolutely amazing I read through the whole post over hours and hours at work haha , excellent job it looks insaine!

smicha I am building 7x 980ti in 900D smile.gif Yes - it's sick but true. I need your help - what is the max thickness of the 240 rad that can be mounted in front externally (without fans). Precisely - what is the distance from front fan mounts to the edge (front cover)?

Kidam101 Hey James do u know by any chance the spacer to use in to make the CPU and ram block on the same level and the Mobo leveled with the CPU block when using EK block ^^ ?

thanks!

I joined the OCN forum just to ask you a few questions, so I would really appreciate it if you took the time to answer my questions smile.gif Your ROBOCOP and 900CSQ is two lovely computers I must say, and i know how many hours the acrylic tubing with bending and accuracy would be taking for a build of this kind. I am afraid I am not going to do that, but your ROBOCOP-build almost inspired me to go with Acetal+Nickel waterblocks on RAM, CPU and motherboard, that was a little hard to admit for a Nickel Plexi-lover.

I just wondered how you did the filling of the EK-Bay reservoir, because of the acrylic tubing, don't you need to drill a hole in the top of the case or do a 5 1/4" bay mod (so you make a hole for the fillport through the front-cover(s)?).

Secondly I am wondering how much space it is in the bottom compartment of the case, because I am starting my Corsair 900D build in a few months and I like to fit a Alphacool Monsta 480 in the bottom with pull in through the bottom of the case. On the "other side" of the lower compartment I would try to fit a EK-XTX240 with fans pulling air out, will I still be able to have some kind of hard/soft tubing in between the rads in the bottom compartment? The Monsta is 76-80 mm thick (I don't remember exactly, but with fans of 25 mm thickness that equals about 105 mm, then on the other side the XTX-rad is 64 mm thick and with fans it is about 90 mm. To ask the question a different way, is the lower compartment of the case 25,2 cm as the spesifications say?

Third question, will I have a problem with a EVGA G2 1300W (depth) with cables and a XTX240 in the lower compartment?

Fourth question, I am planning on going with a EK-XTX240 radiator in the front (a little earlier today, this night actually I read something about mounting the radiator in the front of the "plate" in the front, and the fans on the inside). I would like to do that with the XTX240, will I then have the opportunity to fit the filter in the front and the frontcover over the rad?) Is it possible to go with the XTX240 + a XT120, so I use the XTX240 in the top two "places" and the XT120 in the bottom "place"? This also on the "outside" of the "plate" in the front, with fans on the inside (in the front).

Fifth question, I would also like to put in a EK-XTX120 in the back exhaust fan place, will this in any circumstance hit the EK-Dominator X4 block on the motherboard? Or in any way block the view of it? I would like to go with the fan behind the radiator as intake (so from inside the case from right to left: radiator --> fan --> metal plate of case (Corsair 900D))

Anyways, this is looking just stunning, I am stationed in Norway so I guess you can add "international interest" of your builds. Sorry about my bad English! wink.gif

Rozayz I'm a bit annoyed (but really glad at the same time; lots of ideas gained!) that I read through all ~ 50 pages and didn't get to see your backplate cable management! Pics wink.gif PM if you want, just need more ideas to help me with where to place my own cables.

Also, how on earth do you get your GPU/PSU sleeving/cables to ... idk, stay still/straight/nice looking? ;_;
