umm thats kinda hard since behind front panel may not fit the fans, btw have you measure the space? you may change your front fans

I measured the lip of the front case cover to be about 14/16" deep and there is a little crack to the front case as well about 1/16".


I think the 20mm radiator with a slim filter will fit.

I think you should use the 20mm fans... think that the fans pushing air will already provide airflow through the radiator so the pull fans are just there to evacuate heat faster.

The front fans are going to push air into the radiator and the fans on the inside of the case are going to pull. Both jobs are important. I'd like to have the AP 15 (120x25mm) fans for both but I may have to go with 120x20 mm fans on the front to push the air in because the front of the case isn't deep enough to fit the 120x25mm fans but will work with the 120x20 fans.


I also have an idea to mod the front of the case but it seems like too much work and money just to get the fans that I want to use. I would like to keep the clean Lian Li look on the front but I could go monster look.

I'll probably preserve the front of the case and use 120x20mm fan for front push fans and then get a shorter better video card later on and then stick the other nice AP15 fans on the inside in push.

This might get a bit too complicated but an pcie extender cable might allow you to mount the card in a place to allow the radiator to fit. Then there is the problems of where/how to mount it while still having video out from the card.

I have been thinking about this and it may look odd but work well. I think I could mount the card vertical from the top of the case. :D


I'm having some problems with a new XSPC HD79XX block that I was gong to mod for this card, it has some rough spots on it and looks like a poorly made full cover block.

That radiator is a BEAST!!:eek:
Nah, its a monsta. Cools like a beast though.

One question sonda5, why did you go with the xspc block? Sad to hear it isn't working out.

This is the new style that has 0.5mm fins which are half the spacing size of the first edition. This should lead to better cooling than the first version.

The only real reason I bought this block was because I think I can mod it to fit the Vapor X HD7950.

Bump for an update in the parts lists.
Had some problems with a part but back on track now.

Will be testing new XSPC RAZER HD7970 "New Edition" soon. If you want to read up on my test I am comparing it to my HEatkiller block that is on my HD7950 950mhz Edition.

My tests here: http://www.overclock.net/t/1366829/...or-hd-7970-full-coverage-vga-block-new-design


I'd like to thank JAMES888 for giving me some good ideas to help improve my loop. :cool:

The front cover of the case will not fit properly with the 120x25 mm fans. I really wanted to use the fans but I am considering getting a 120x20mm fan to preserve the front of the case. If I stick with the Scythe fans I'm going to have to hack up the front of case to allow the fans to stick out. not going to look pretty.


I wish Koolance made a 2x120mm radiator shroud so that I could stick that onto the front to the case. I think that would look tough.

Not sure what I am going to do.


I think the koolance 2x92mm fan shroud could be modified to fit over the fans but It's going to take alot of hacking.


I'm leaning towards just using 120x20mm fans on the front to preserve the front of the case....

what about using 2x



Scythe Slip Stream Slim 120 mm Fan (12 mm height, regular 25mm height) and 2 regular
to go push / pull

Thanks. :)

I just happen to have 2 of those sitting around and they are nice little fans but I want to use a more proper water cooling fan.

I have a few ideas in mind but right now I'm focusing on other areas of my loop. The front end of the case will come together once I get my loop configuration down.

what i was trying to tell is, attach em @ gfx side as pull and the "proper" fans as push
that fixes your prob with the space in gfx card area



might also safe you from cutting the Case front

Thanks for the help. I don't mean to be rude but I already thought about that as well and... I'm really hell bent on getting the AP15's in push pull or putting some Yate Loon high speed 120x20mm up front....

No race here. I'm just enjoying the build.

I like your taste in hardware.

I have the same motherboard, ram, cpu, a sapphire 7970 compared to your 7950.

My loop has an apogee drive II in it so less tubing. I am quite fond of it.

I like your taste in hardware.

I have the same motherboard, ram, cpu, a sapphire 7970 compared to your 7950.

My loop has an apogee drive II in it so less tubing. I am quite fond of it.
Very nice.

My 4770k is bare die mount and its to delicate to put a motor vibrating on it.

Love the no reservoir loop with the Monster 240 radiator which works great as we have done it. Thanks for the idea. :cool:

I don't want to risk bare die mounting... I am too clumsy. So far I don't see a need whatsoever. My 4770k hits 55c under max load. 65c if I get the cpu going too.
