    yup.

    But I like your approach as well. It is the most elegant and logical. I just tend to change components alot, so this way I'n not cutting cables.

    Lets push this great thread to the top!


    Got a question guys.. I'm thinking of doing a PSU in the front of my MM case.. But, having a bit of thought pattern problems... I'm thinking of..


    [​IMG]

    I would make sure the psu is moved foward enough to which I wouldn't have to cut the front for the exhaust of the PSU.. Then move the fan's to the side to which it wouldn't hurt the exhaust of the psu... But, if I reversed the psu's fan, and let the bottom fan blow air into the exhaust fan, like this:

    [​IMG]


    Would it work? Or, would that small amount of air not mess the psu's air flow since the back is the exhaust?

    Now, here is the other ways..

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Or, can do what the case has..

    [​IMG]


    Any thoughts would greatly be heard.

    I'm having reservations as to whether or not I should go ahead with using the case pedestal I build, mostly because of the daunting size it makes my case. It will be 31" after I put the feet on it. I guess it could go on the floor.

    I mainly want the pedestal not only for my tripple rad, but also to get the 655 out of the bottom drive bays. This would also allow me to mount my Bitstower water tank on the bottom of the case, which would feed the pump directly below it. I would also keep a tee in the pedestal with a fitting for easy draining.

    All this, however, would also add around 18" of tube, and at least one 90 degree fitting to my loop.

    What do you guys think?

    hmmm, that's the idea I had with my case, but I am opting for something simpler and internal. However, that's great man you should go for it. Get some QD fittings and you are good to go. :toast:

    I'm still lurking. Home life keeps me pretty busy.

    I tried to retire from Pro Modding but during the Summer Break I took on a nice little job.

    Had to chop away at the optical bay to make the 3 x 140mm rad fit. Perforated the floor. Routed a hole in the side panel with a mesh grill and a high flow filter. Filter for the case floor and other openings. Powdercoated everything (even the DVD casing) Raven Black. Made risers for the feet. Made a pump mount. Used button head black hardware throughout. Mounted all moving parts on isolators (fans, HDDs, pumps). Made a custom harness for the 11 fans. Sheathed a few wires.

    Loop is very nice stuff: EK Dual DDC Pump Top V2 with EK 250 Reservoir, HW Labs GTX120, GTX280, GTX420, EK Supreme High Flow Copper CPU block, EK FC 5970 Nickel and Acetal GFX blocks with Acetal Bridge, BP Matte Black fittings throughout, Koolance Quick Disconnects for the CPU/GFX blocks, Noiseblocker 140mm fans throughout, Ultra Kaze 120mm x 38mm for the GTX120 Rad, all controlled by an mCubed BigNg and miniNg via my custom harness.

    Hardware isn't bad either...Asus "SuperComputer" with too many PCIe slots and 6 sticks of pretty Corsair Dominators with the fancy red heatsinks, Xeon 3550, 2 x ATI Black Edition 5970s, OCZ 1000 Watt PSU, OCZ SSD PCie Card, 3 x 1.5TB Seagate 7200.12 HDDs, Plextor DVD, mCubed controllers. Pretty much:pimp:ing.

    Had some issues with a leaking BP rotary and a leaking EK Pump Top. Other than that no drama.
    HammerON, Cold Storm, DaMulta and 2 others say thanks.
