    If you want to put anything over 88cm tall in it, you'll have to get out the saw. I'm thinking of possibly try to put a Corsair H50 in it, but this Athlon II x4 runs very cool and this Opty heatpipe cooler works quite nicely! Perhaps if you can find a tower cooler that is thin enough to fit in between the PSU and the HDD bay it could work, but then you need room for a fan.

    You can get it both ways and in different configurations also. I have two...one in a Silverstone case and the other bare for the bench rig.

    Well, you would with most cases. A three foot tall heatsink would be rather cumbersome. :laugh:

    Lawl. Millimeters! Sorry, they pushed imperial units through my head during my younger years. I'll get this metric system down someday.:laugh: I just picked up another Xigmatek R1283. It'll fit, but gonna have to cut to fit a fan on it.

    You may get away with running it passive.....or just buy a smaller sized fan and ghetto rig the thing???

    If I run it passive I doubt it will be any better than what I'm currently using. Using a smaller fan, I would still have to cut into the case divider. I really don't mind cutting it, as it's just wasted space anyways. I also like cutting stuff. I also haven't played any recent games that don't work with CrossFire.


    @Velvet Wafer on the post below me: I feel sorry for those with anything less than a 30mb internet connection. Way too big. I can't even expand them, though they take forever to load.

    A watercooling Adventure

    those things are freakin expensive! i remade my loop yesterday,its more kinda like overdimensioned, whereas yours is extremely powerful! but i have room to improve! :p
    (8 of about 32 fanplaces used;))
    Initial Chaos:

    [​IMG]
    First Improvement,merging my 2 Pumps, so flow management gets easier, and the block has maximum flow (the big rad is a little dented on 2 elbows, and has somewhat high resistance,until i fix it one day:eek:)
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    New tubing, the old was "copperized",and blind, because i didnt flushed the rad enough, before adding it to my loop.i also used a few adapters,to be able to easily remove the big rad of the loop:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Second improvement, a bigger output nozzle from a former Tt Res,for the swiftech 240:
    [​IMG]
    Third Improvement, a REALLY big,selfbuilt res. i bet minimum 2,to 3 litres alone went in this "water tower";):
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    My favorite brand of distilled Water:D:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    i had 2 nice leaks, during operation of the system :eek: i recognized it after an hour of using the rig, when this stream emerged from my emergency water channels. i opened the side panel, to find the whole dvd drive tray, where the pump sits, totally wet, and as i shutted the rig down,an was kneeled down,for reaching the PSU switch, a few drops of water, flew 10 cm in front of my face, out of the opened case.
    10 cm away from my beloved (first:eek:) SLI setup.
    i crapped myself.
    i then looked closer at the pump to find that sucker, leaking like hell.i had to tighten it half a turn, with a leatherman:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    the second leak was the top of the res, because i hadnt screwed the cap on properly, after 1 and a half turns, it was completly tight, and stopped leaking. it wasnt pictured, but a few remains, are visible in the last respic.
    All in all, my room got pretty much wet. that happens everytime, i work with water... but it brought me a good 2-3c, a lot more stable temps, faster cooldown time, and my tubing doesnt look anymore, like it was sanded from inside (the old water was pretty contaminated):laugh: i invested about 7 euro, for tubing,and the adapter,and got the acrylic tube and plates for free, on my working place.
    i needed 4 days to built it, because i wanted the silicone to be reeaaaally dry, when i fill water in it for the first time. but its the first res i build, that shouldnt leak after 24 hours:eek:
    i hope it will stay leakfree for a long time:)
    now a few pics of the internals:
    the naked board,with HK 3.0 LT:
    [​IMG]
    the final Result:

    [​IMG]

    i hope that werent too much huge sized pics,sry for that:eek:
    this was my last watercooling adventure:toast:

    EDIT: i have to admit that im a total noob,regarding photography and picture editing in common :eek:
    tell me when i have to change the resolution, and please name me a nice prog, for doing that, then i will change all pics

    Posting pics such as that aren't allowed on this forum.

    Posting links to buy products like that definitely aren't allowed here.

    It's drug paraphanalia. We know what is it, and it's not allowed. It's also off topic completely, continue on with the PC talk please. :toast:

    not to be cocky, but i find that highly conservative. i didnt made the pic for showing it, half of it was accidently in the pic. in my country its completly legal, and the cops arent even allowed to take it from you. im not conform with american law, so i never knew, its SO bad to show it:laugh:
    i have to apologize.

    two things... we arent discussing where you live, we are discussing the rules of TPU.
    secondly, can u please resize those pics, this thread now takes my laptop a ton of time just to even get to read the current posts.

    This website has nothing to do with American law, nor does it have to abide by them. This is W1zzards law. Regardless of how you or I for that matter feel on the subject, as moderators we enforce the rules that are to be enforced. Techpowerup just isn't the place for that kind of thing. :toast:

    I will fix them for you. ;)
