Just curious: how are the fans facing? The reason I ask is due to the layout of the loop you have now. I was imagining before that all the fans were facing one direction, say sucking air in from the left side of the case and blowing it all out the right. If that's the setup. then the water in the rad on the right will get heated somewhat by the exhaust from the rad on the left. I think this can be done more effectively by not using the splitters, going through the rad on the right, then the rad on the left.

I suppose if you have them both facing in, the then eight fans will have to exhaust into the case, which would push the air up (working with the hot air naturally rising).

I have them in a pull set up. I have the fan from the front, and from the back, blowing air in, while the 8 fans are pulling the air out.

Then, for the case, I'll most likely have 2 fans, blowing air into the case. Then, I'll have an exhaust fan at the back of the case.. I don't know yet about the top panel.. I scrapped the whole bay drive thing.. all I know so far is that it might hold the buttons.. even though I prefer the buttons even hidden..

Yeah, the front and rear fans won't be able to keep up with the volume of air pushed out by the other eight. It will end up pulling air down & out of the case which seems kinda backwards. The case air will be warmed up a little bit by components inside it as well.

How I want to do it is this.. have two separate zones.. there will be a top. that will be placed on the mm pedestal. So, it'll be w box all its own. Just 2 quick connects, a fill port will be on that top/bottom of the case.

Then I definitely think the fans on the front and rear will be unmatched. Just my $.02. :toast:

You know I don't mind the 2 cent's.. just gotta find out where your going at.. Since I'm not at work anymore, not for another 4h..





Or






the fans on the second case is blowing air from the bottom.. I'm thinking of doing this.. and this is where the second one comes into view..

Remember a while back.. i got metal risers.. a bunch of different sizes... Why not this.. set the case up at the bottom with that? lol.. I know, it's crazy.. but why not? lol

The first one is what I'm going towards.. That's what I was talking about.. Now, TSki, what's your words?

I was thinking more like this:



Rad B gets rid of some heat and rad A gets rid of the rest. Or you can have both of them blow in and up into the case, and let the case fans be the exhaust.

I get were your going at.. Basically the same way that I was going to do. Before the idea of myself having that second rad..

Quoted again.. lol

I've thought about it, and thought about it while I was carbon fiber'in the 3 rad grills... I want to go back to the way I had it before.. 1 rad... Reason being.. I was wanting the pedestal to be a all-in-one water unit.. I have it all together, to where I can just move it to someone else's case.. So, I'm going back to it.. SO, it'll have the "blanket" effect on air. I'll be making the box come next week, and hook it to my case, to show how it works out..
