I am thinking of taking my sig rig and water cooling it. My plan is to cool the CPU of course, 2 GPU's (currently looking for a second 3850), and possibly the NB. I'd like to get enough to cool those things, but also I'd like it to fit inside my Antec 900. I'd be willing to lose the HDD cages or modify them in order to maespace. My idea is to have one self-contained unit. I am also thinking of combinig all of this with my solder for thermal paste idea (yes I'm crazy!) [ http://www.overclock.net/cooling-exp...ml#post4849177 ]. Any suggestions/comments/feedback/etc?

u could run dual loops with 2 dual120 rads...mod one in the front and top mount one...other wise you can use external optical drives, mount your hdd at the bottom of your case and run a triple in the front...

Antec 900 is meant for air cooling there is really not going to be any room at all in your case. I would suggest to get a full tower case before you go water cooling.
Like the Cooler Master Cosmos or the Cooler Master Haf, the Silverstone tjo7 etc

OK. I appreciate all the help, but wha All do I need for this undertaking. I understand I'll need a radiator, tubing, fluid, clapms, blocks for the CPU and 2 GPU's. You also need a pump, right?

Pump seems nice. What about a res, or will the amount stored in the pump/rad/loop be enough?

You basically have the choice of either getting a res or a t line. A res bleeds faster and looks nicer but a t line is much more compact.

I may have a case custom-made for this shendig. Anyone know someone who can make a custom case? Possibly out of acrylic? Still I may just make the best of my Antec 900 and see what I can conjure up.

You know us computer jocks and jockesses are something else.
Like Juggalo23451 posted above "the Antec 900 case is meant for air cooling" and IMHO it's one of the best AC'ing cases on the market (wire management aside) So after all them engineers and little ole' ladies designed and built a "super" AC'ing case, the computer jocks and jockesses come along and want to WC' it


In the thread "Antec 900 water cooling config suggestions..." there is a individual that was successful in making a internal WC'ing loop for his Antec 900
He seems to be satisfied. I just never had the luck and went to external (separate container)


Good luck with whatever you decide and please post some pics

Thanks for the advice. Oh yeah, there will definitely be pics. I've noticed recently that there are badges for Mod of the Month. I now have even more inspiration, motivation, etc.!
