Water cooling help

Hi guys, I think its time i done a fully water cooled system rather than a h70.

I have an Antec 300, Could I fit 2 radiators together at the back and the top fan mount?
I'm not sure if there will be enough room?

You could fit a 240 or 360mm rad if you use Swiftech's Radbox which would mount on the rear of the case and would attach to the rear fan port, you could then feed the hoses through an available expansion slot or drill appropriately-sized holes in the back to feed the hoses through (don't forget the grommets!).

I don't know how much space you'd have without sawing (there's a template at the front of the case which appears to be for two 120 fans), but you may be able to fit a single 120 rad into the loop by fitting it to the top fan port.

Discovered I won't have enough room for this after using measuring up. I think i may go with a Corsair 650D case. Now I need to decide on which blocks etc i need.

If you want to put a lot of radiators in, consider the NZXT Switch 810. It will hold a 420-480 in the top, a 40 in the rear and a 2X 120 in the front floor or against the front fans. It has a couple extra features also, and comes in 4 colors.

Have a look at the water cooling guide in the same section: http://www.sevenforums.com/overclock...ing-guide.html. As for blocks, I would say XSPC, they have the lowest tested restriction rate of all cpu blocks, and the raistorm fits on several different cpu platforms,so its a great value for money. Secondly I would go for Swiftec, they have excellent warranties and low restrictive blocks, but first choice would still be XSPC. I don't know if you purchased anything yet, but for a 650d chassis I would get the Swiftec 355 pump with pump top, on that I would ad a 140 mm reservoir from EKWB, or if you can fit it a 250mm, connected to the raystorm XSPC cpu block,running 7/16 tubing on 1/2x3/4" fittings will give a better seal, or get same size tubing as your fittings but make sure they are compression fittings. Then for rad I would go for the XSPC if you plan on getting lowed high rpm fans. or get the Swiftec/Koolance v series if you want low rpm fans. Then tubing must be primo chill-primo flex, get the best! Color is your choice. And I would use distilled water wither a silver kill coil, but if you want colored liquid go for primo chill.

Alsisgevat, Maybe I misunderstood the tut, but the XSPC rad on the RX360 is saying 8FPI. I understood that means you can use low RPM fans.
