    Well I figured it is time to make a new thread for my age old rocketfish Lian Li full tower case. I found my ancient (848 day since last post) original build of it, but felt it simpler and cleaner to start a new thread off and link in pics.

    Finally were it sits now

    Nice, hopefully someday I will learn how to watercool, until then, my Noctua beast will have to do.

    Oh and to put my highend Nidec's into perspective static pressure is 35.88 mmH2O, a Swiftech Helix is 2.29 mmH20 and an Ultra Kaze 3K is 6.05 mmH2O...

    Righto so ended up ordering a CHVF from the egg open box. Ended up being DOA. No big deal since the egg was out of them board is getting RMA'd through Asus. Until then I wanted to go ahead and get all of the watercooling parts, fans and cable management hashed out.

    The big rad. Swifty MCR420QP+MCR220QP-STACK, using the clear fan housings as a shroud they are hollowed. The fans used for the push/pull of the stacked rads are Nidec Beta V VA450DC 3.3A models and will be used at 7V.

    Installed in the case with plenty of room for a single 5.25" ODD and possible a fan controller or pair of temp sensors undecided at this point

    2x Skythe Ultra Kaze 3000RPM

    Found out that in between the front case panel and case I could fit a 120x25mm fan. Installed a red LED Coolermaster SickleFlow as an intake.

    Very unobtrusive red glow from them.

    D-Tek Fuzion V1 block with a medium insert.

    Full assembly luckily no PCB sag out of these cards. Ram is installed to test height issues will be using 4x4GB of Wintec ONE instead of the 2x2GB kit of G.Skill shown.

    [​IMG]

    That is another Skythe Ultra Kaze 3000RPM this one as an intake. With as high CFM as the exhaust through the top is had to make everything else an intake or I start to starve the case for air.

    [​IMG]

    I will be removing the top layer of 120x25mm case fans from my case top (not pictured) to swap with a simple 480 radiator grill. Plenty of CFM pushing through them from inside the case no need to blemish the lid.
