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

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.

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:


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:)




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:





Second improvement, a bigger output nozzle from a former Tt Res,for the swiftech 240:

Third Improvement, a REALLY big,selfbuilt res. i bet minimum 2,to 3 litres alone went in this "water tower";):




My favorite brand of distilled Water:D:


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:


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:

the final Result:



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

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:

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:

When you stated earlier about the Boreas being expensive...you can purchase one for a little over $500 US from Coolit Systems. You could have nearly that much in a high-end water cooled set-up and not be able to do what you can with the Boreas. :)

there is watercooling under all those fans? :roll:

Looks like a lot of custom work going on in there, and with that rad you should be able to cool like 4 computers. I think you need to cool more stuffs;)

yeah, but my whole setup hasnt cost me more than 100 euro... and to use your additional performance, insulation is HIGHLY recommended. maybe i will do that one day, but that may take some time;) other things are more important atm, stronger VGAs, for example:)
but thanks for the suggestion

there is watercooling under all those fans? :roll:

Looks like a lot of custom work going on in there, and with that rad you should be able to cool like 4 computers. I think you need to cool more stuffs;)
indeed, it is! and i will add many more fans, till this rad is fully push/pull,with at least 16 fans per side,minimum are 1500 rpm fans:D

in fact, i only bought 3 parts, besides the usual pvc tubing etc from the toolshop.
the HK 3.0 and the Magicool Pump, the Thermaltake Pump, is from my first loop, but i also bought it a few years ago:)
the rads were donated to me, the 240 by Paulieg/Bogmali (many thanks for that,again!:))
and the big rad from the 25 year old renault espace of a co worker. it had broken piping, but i fixed that with glassfiber epoxy, and now its fine for WCing, even tho its not suited for cars anymore :)
anyone stated 10 rigs, but i find 4-5 also more realistic. problem is that its dented, i will shoot a (smaller) pic now, to show it to you :)
that makes it more restrictive than the HK, so i will buy a third pump soon:)

EDIT:
here is the "flaw" in my rad :eek::
