Hi! I want to ask, im building a titan x with this case and plan to watercool it with corsair hg10 n980 couple with corsair h55. Do you think it will fit in there?
I need to remove the factory cover on the titan x and place the hg10 (dimension: 27.2 x 11.2 x 6.1 cm) and use the hg55 (52mm thickness).
Can you please advice if it will fix? Thanks!

alltheGHz I like what you did with the GPU cooler. I still can't believe you stuffed that much stuff into a case of that size!

Update to Z170!

 

This board is soooo much more SFF friendly it's ridiculous. The layout makes everything much easier, the top 120 rad now fits much much better.

Changed to a pair of slightly larger drives I had sitting around. The main reason was because they're black compared to the silver Intel's. They look much better now.

See, all black. Don't mind the orange, it's just to make sure nothing leaks before adding the top cover with 120 rad. The case is a little beat up from traveling :( it needs some love.

I think I'm going to cut another 240 grill on the top of this side to help with the exhaust of hot air, and to spice it up a bit eh.

The experiment was done without the bracket (see pics). So no it won't fit unfortunately. It must be a 1 or 2mm affair but still too high.

I can't find the bitspower reservoir in Europe so I think I will not try WC in my FTZ01.

Been traveling but I brought the rig with me to do some on-the-road-modding with a familiar face :)

 

 

 

Anyone recognize? :DTsFNa0e.jpg

Unfortunately it will not fit :(

Back to Bitspower...

 

Had to shave down the hole we drilled earlier in order to make the plug flush for the lid to close properly

Started sleeving...

While none other than Peter Brands (L3P) started cutting the Lightning stock cooler

Great photo! But all sleeved

The plan! MSI wanted to maintain their branding, this way I can have it hooked it up the GPU still and plus it will bring more air into the radiator :)

To accommodate the pwm cable from the Lightning fan assembly we needed to cut the radiator

Perfect!

 

We had to cut down the 120 rad too... super tight fit, every mm counts!

Now... to extend the slot in the front of the case that would normally be used by the DVD drive...instead we are putting the RGB glowing logo from the Lightning

Cleaning up the cut...

Now with both the RGB logo and fan assembly:
