you can always mount it on the back,but a swiftech triple works fine for me at even 4.4 if my ambient is not 35c+ the A/C is coming

I already think about back mounting but I drop the idea because i want a clean and discrete loop. Let's see what is the next surprise this loop will give me

I think the ATCS has something like 114mm of clearance between the fan mounts and the top of the mainboard tray. Since the MCR320 is only 34mm thick, that leaves enough room to do push/pull with a set of 6000RPM San Aces!

Hm.. Does that take in account of the 45degree cross bracket on top of the mobo trap??
I was thinking about adding three 30mm shoud on with my scythe GTs and Feser 360 rad.
But I'm not sure if there's enough room.

Martin is having trouble because his rad has old 25mm fan spacing.

That's only a part of the game otto and you know it XD

Long story short.
Rad have not the good spacing between hole, making it a bit to long for the case.
I pierced a hole in the rad because of the UPS guy.
Today I tried to order a new RAD and I realize that my bank charge me stupid life insurance fee that I don't have and they are going over my credit card limit so I have to wait ti order the new rad...
This water cooling story is a bit pissing me off now:P but I will carry on! Maybe it will be up and running next summer

don't worry about it a lot of times setting up your first loop can be a real pain, but once you get it up and running and the first time you see your temps make it all worth it.
