Part 2 - Mounting the Radiator

Hi guys, Some update on my logs. as u wonder why WC ?? a lot ppl would say wanna a more slient rig, to OC. some are really into beautify own rig. For some, like me, i believe after upgrading the PC hardware component. got some spare cash!! lolx! :doublegun hoot har!! WATERCOOLING! spend $$$$$ like no tomor! :hootdah: ask me again! if wanna WC. pls newcomer! prepare endless cash!!:evil::money:

So after all the crap:explode:!!! what is the most important component in WC???:023: For me it would be the Radiator!! u might ask why?? isn't it the most simple and easy to get item? Yes, is true! it is so simple but many ppl had neglect it and spend more on like res or Pump add on, bla bla bla:buai: Radiator is equal important as, it determine to cool the coolant that u are using thus keeping the system running at a cooler temp. 2nd, due to some many cases in the market. The mounting of RAD become important: the size? the thickness? the fin?

For me i had chosen the EK XTX RAD and i am going to try to mount 3 rads onto my NZXT 810. Let me show what i got: EK XTX 120/240/360 RAD.
EK_RAD_1_.JPG


Comparing side by side! :beer2:

The EK logo!

Need to remove the btm panel b4 i can mount the 240rad
EK_RAD_5_.JPG

EK_RAD_6_.JPG


Aline the btm 240rad
EK_RAD_7_.JPG


NOTE: A closer look on why u cant mount the front to let ur 240rad stand! the two mounted fans are 140mm fans. If u look closer, the inner screw hole is too far apart>15mm therefore u need to mod the front b4 u can mount any 240rad. A 280rad shall be ok if i am right.
biggrin.gif

EK_RAD_8_.JPG


This is how thick is going to be for a push n pull configuration! 25mm+64mm+25mm = VERY THICK
EK_RAD_9_.JPG

EK_RAD_10_.JPG


With the Removable HDD pull-out cages slot in! :angel:
EK_RAD_11_.JPG


NOTE: the top mounting of NZXT Switch 810 does pose some problem for me when deciding on 120 or 140 rad. the inner screw hole is for 120mm which is 15mm apart. the outside screw hole is for 140mm but was 20mm apart :buai: and in the market, there is not many 140mm radiator that had 20mm screw hole. Like EK, 15mm screw hole should be the industry standard:021: This is main reason why i choose 120mm rad instead of 140mm:buai:
EK_RAD_12_.JPG


After mounting the 360rad:cool: to note that the 120mm fan sit just right from the rad and the 5.25" hard drive hot swap cage:lol:
EK_RAD_13_.JPG

EK_RAD_14_.JPG


Top View - Closer look at the 360rad port! will be routing the tubing from here
EK_RAD_15_.JPG

EK_RAD_16_.JPG

EK_RAD_17_.JPG


ok that all for the 240/360 rad mounting!:angel: WAIT!!! :confused2 where is the 120rad to be mount ??? not at the back ??? lolx!! hmmm... is kinda tight to be mount at the back and now i am considering mounting at the front! more pic will be show! need to do flushing for radiator today if possible! hope ppl that wanna watercool the NZXT 810, do take note the point i had face. :doublegun:beer2::plane:

Ok, with the Cable coming in last week, i am going to test the Mobo 8 pin as many had face issue when mounting the top rad :****: - given 90mm clearance from the top, i had mount a 64mm EK XTX 360 rad with 3x push NZXT FZ white led 120mm x 25mm. Total thickness will be 89mm which left me 1mm allowance!:phantomof. U may think i am pushing my luck but i really believe the quality of the NZXT 810 case! Nevertheless, NZXT 810 did not fail me! let the pic do the talking!! :sarcastic

Note: The ONE mm clearance which i believe i had:band2:
