Nice Setups! Welcome to the Forum! Great to have some more WC guys around to answer my dumb questions when my order arrives ;-)

Hehe, Thanks Guys!

Me like r0k0!

Babrbarossa: Thanks m8! Would be a real pleasure to help you out with watercooling. Not only i do like to build set-up or help ppls to build set-up but i also took quite a bit of experience by doing so

Few more pics of my current Rig (same WC stuff except for the Tubing) Had so many problems with that Thick 1/2" ID 3/4" OD Tubing that i decided to go with my 1/2" ID 5/8" OD Tubing instead.




Heres what my old AMD 4800+ & Saphire X1900XT set-up used to look like.









At that time i used to look more for the ***yness of the Watercooling thing... Now, as you could see in my new build, It's 100% for performance of so

That's a really neat place to put the radiator (bottom of the case)- did you have to cut the bottom panel out to allow airflow?

Of course i did. Using a Jigsaw. I measured the rad and then did some makrs to see whats needed to be cut on the bottom of the case. Also, to answer your question. Yeah i needed to put the case on wheels (that came witht he case when i bought it) so that there is enough space under the case for the fans to actually s*ck air!

Heres a pic of the whole on my old set-up. Now it looks way better thought. I cleaned it, filed* the sides a bit and mounted a Nice Thermochill 120.3 Rad Grill! It really looks awesome now. AT the time i took the pic i had no other choice to simply use what you see on the pic ( i don't know how to call it in English, hehe) Until my radgrill arrive and since that time i never thought of taking a pic of the under case lol.

That's a great solution- I wish my case was more accommodating- I think my only choice for my 3X120 is the back, and even then, it's going to extend above the top of my case.

What parts have you ordered Babrbarossa ? and where ?

What case do you own ? EDIT: I see Antec P180... I might have some pics of WC set-ups with your case that might actually help you.

I think the only issue he will have is rad location, but with the psu being located on bottom of the case I think it will fit on back. Just my two cents.
