Nevermore: WaterCooled Raven
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hey HWC,

I'm embarking on a journey of discovery, doing my first watercooling project and I'm pretty pumped up about it.

I'm going to be slightly modding my Silverstone Raven02-ew case to fit a 180x3 rad to cool my existing hardware and I hope I can document my progress in a way that will be entertaining and helpful for people who may want to do something similar.

Here is a size comparison for a 3x120 vs a 3x180:

For those interested the component list:
xfx 750w psu
i7 2600k
gigabyte p67a-ud4
16gb g.skill ripjaw-x black pcb/black heatspreader 1600mhz
MSI gtx570 x2 SLI
Azentech Bravura
G.skill phoenix pro 120gb(<3 AkG)
WD black 640gb x 2

My first w/c was also my last. It was fun as hell but damn expensive! I love the white motif, gonna be sweet.

Well the HDD cage is getting it's rivets drilled so it can be cut down to size and rotated that's for sure. The small issue I have is that I can't get rad grills for 180mm fans.

I almost feel like buying myself an FT02 because that radiator is so bauce. It is just so damn huge.

Good to hear you finally got all/most of your stuff!

So tempted to do a similar build, but I'll patiently await the Cosmos II and Muderbox MKII before deciding...

Have fun! I'll be keeping on eye on the progress :thumb:

Hrmmmm.... just a rough calculation of fan sizes X 3 suggests that theres twice the cooling area on that rad compared to a 3X 120 version.... that's pretty impressive considering that a 3 X 120 is already a formidable cooling force......

Why don't you contact and ask Bill (mnpctech) and see if he can come up with a few, and how much for each? I'm sure he can make up some.

I gave him a shout a few weeks ago and he told me he was a couple months backlogged. With CES around the corner and a few others I expect him to be a busy beaver for a while.
