Nevermore: WaterCooled Raven
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
16gb g.skill ripjaw-x black pcb/black heatspreader 1600mhz
MSI gtx570 x2 SLI
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.
Damn dude!!! that is one hellova rad!!!!! Looking forward to seeing you shoehorn it in there. :)
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......
