Hi there OC3D. I´m here to bother you with my noobish qusetions and my bad grammar and typos, but try to bare. Im a first timer when it comes to a watercooling, so i need much help and clearification for many things. First of all, i tried to solve my problems with my native lanquage (Phinnish that is), but yet again the forums that i tried lack people, so i allways get only a couple of anwsers. And on top of that, theres allways flamewars about diffirent methods like push and pull, so i thought id register here to get sort of a second opinion. No lets get to the topic.
The summer is coming fast, and we all are happy and run joyfully in the fields. For the summer vocation, i thought i need something to do, so i decided to build a case. My old one is kinda of a behemot and a real fingerprint magnet, so a new case is definitely something good to do. The case will be built out of 3mm thick aluminium, and its gonna be compact and simple. I dont want thousands of leds, nitros, spinning rimms nor anything like that. I wanna keep it simple. The basic concept it something very close to what the http://metku.net/index.html?path=mod...asia/index_eng
is. Im gonna keep updating this thread and asking more guestions as my plans move along, but for starters, ill ask this:
For radiators im thinking about two 2x140mm rads. One will be mounted on the top of the case, and the other on the front, both pulling. They should do the cooling job for my 965be (the c3 version), and my 5970. Can the rads handle it. And oh, http://www.aquatuning.co.uk/index.php/cPath/25_480
are some rads that i can get easily. Do the slim rads have enough cooling power to pull this off, or do i have to use the big boys. Now its crucial to pick the rads before designin the case, because as i said, i wanna keep it small.
I have concidered dropping off the 5´25 inc bays completely to save some room. I can use an external dvd-drive, and i dont have any wiggle-wagglers to fill any more bays. For fan controlling i will buy a gizmo, but for example, the Kaze Master Server can be cutted to be ocly few centimeres deep.
wow, thats a pretty long novel for my scale. Beats the school stuff.
