Ahhhh good mornin lol i took work off till thursday got sum family over and figured id hopefully have everything set up so by the weekend i can do sum tests and such.

You haven't had a chance to mount the single thermochill rad yet have yea was reading one of your earlier posts of your interest in mounting the single rad in front of your case was wondering how you would secure it to your case? Maybe with brackets i guess.....

I think its kinda funny they have those two holes in the back to route tubes but you cannot mount a rad in the back of the case i dont think its possible to mount on top of the case as its made of plastic so its a little strange....

Well i started looking thru my barbs the other day and noticed and started singing in my head " ONE OF THESE THINGS IS NOT LIKE THE OTHER "

Have a look






Its very odd as you can see its aboot a mm or two so less in height and the barb that came with it also has a weird line yu can see it barely its the last barb in the picture of 4 anyways i tried taking pictures of these with my old sony camera and it was horrible things were all blurred taken these pics with the new 7.2 Cybershot night and day for me.

I haven't redone that loop, and won't be doing it until after I get to Moncton next month.

I had two thoughts on it though....

1/ use 4 slotted "L" brackets to mount it inside the 5 1/4 bays; or

2/ use velcro to mount and foam rubber to make a tight fit between the rad and the sides of the bays.

Velcro can be found at any hardware store, but it's fairly expensive. I'm going to check out a craft store once I get to Moncton to see if it's any less expensive there.
