scgt1 Well the time has come for me to move on from my custom red, white, and black Powder coated and painted 540. It's time for a change though. Off to Fleabay she goes. It's been great guys.

aepseidhe Hi,
could anyone help me with the clarification ... what is the CPU cooler clearance? Based on spec it's 170mm but it looks like it's more than 185mm. I am doing something wrong with the measurements?

Thanks,
aepseidhe

Sir Beregond Must be the fittings I am using. I couldn't get a 360 rad to fit up front without probably cutting out that hard drive bay.

Nice builds all.

Where did you get that side panel? I must know!

as I'm new to WC, are res/pump combos like EK or aquacomputer aqualis good/silent/low vibration? or should I rather put the pump on a shoggy sandwich and the res on its own somewhere else?
How do you fill your res if you put it at the back compartment above the PSU, there is no space? Do you fill it externally and then mount it?
Here is how I fill the back of mine got the idea from frozencpu's air540 that they used to sell. Also going back to your last question I have a PE 240 on top push pull and PE 360 push with fans outside of the case. No modding to make them fit. I have since removed the push on the top rad cause I felt like it wasn't all that necessary.

Here is my build log it might help if you want to do a pass though like mine to fill.

I have no experience with custom watercooling loops, so I can't really answer any of those questions, sorry.

And would I benefit from adding these radiators internally if I have already a mora3 420 with 4x200mm noctua af20 fans?

I have an NZXT Kraken X52 in push/pull mounted to the top of my Air 540. With the end that has tubing coming out of it (which extends out only a few mm more than the other end) towards the front of the case, there is enough space to mount one fan and maybe a 25 mm radiator on the front of the case. If you're using standalone radiators, you may be able to fit a fan+radiator in the front and fan+radiator+fan on the top if you run the tubing on the back end of the top radiator. However, the rear 140 mm fan might be a tight squeeze. Hopefully that makes sense.


I found an image that @Gleniu made along with his watercooled Air 540 build, one of (if not the) first watercooled 540. This is probably more informative than my descriptions.
