Default Nevermore: WaterCooled Raven

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

Case:


Internals:


Watercooling parts:
Coming soon

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.

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

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.
