system complete (2nd evolution). Wanted to show how everything cooling related was as far back in the case as possible with the shortest loops. Also note 2nd cooling line fan mounted on outside of the case in back
system complete and still LOTS of room for...stuff!
system setup with both cooling loops pumps mounted on back wall of case. The north and south bridge and memory cooling loop (2nd loop) run through 2 pumps in series. The GPU/CPU loop runs through a single pump which I mounted on a modified bracket which was installed in the vacant card slot between the graphics cards. The bracket and pump are barely visible behind the SLI bridge card
the 2nd evolution of my cooling setup...note CPU/GPU loop pump mounted between the graphics cards, maximizing space usage
Ran the system like this for a while but redid it later on.
cooling system complete. This was my 2nd setup design for this case. It evolved tho...
picture of shut off valve on top of gfx card with reservoir/fill line that ends up inside of case top.
the single main pump for CPU/GPU's cooling circuit mounted on back wall
2 pumps in series on secondary (blue) cooling line. Connected with 2 elbows from Danger Den
lots of room for Liquid cooling. Note factory fan opening grill on case floor. This accomodates a 2 fan radiator....but I want a 3 fan rad! Where's my jig saw!??
Air flaps open for landing!
system setup with stock fans
Before cut out modification
un modified bare case with temp leg extensions installed. Need extended legs to gain clearance under case for radiator and air flow
Floor cut out pattern for a 3 fan Thermochill radiator
Floor cut out (from inside)
floor cut out to accomodate 3 fan Thermochill radiator
thermochill radiator positioned under floor after additional cut out finished. Note the inlet ports of the radiator are towards the front of the case where I will have space for Reservoirs.
she's got a big belly now! ( and a lift kit too!)
this will move some air ;-)
Like she's right off the assembly line...oohh, she wants to take her first breath of air!
nice picture of in game graphics of Tom Clancy's Hawx as it was in development
shows how I put the loop inbetween the gfx cards and came into the pump on the back wall. Helped to keep the loop very small.
one evolution of the first loop...discarded this setup
a wheelie stand! Man it's like a shackled up GTO !!
A shot to show reservoir locations.. there's two, one is on this side of the case and not visible
she served me well...I ripped her water cooling guts out and put her out to pasture with air cooling blowing through her hair. I rarely see her anymore.
