I planning so far on just replacing the SNB & putting a WB right on the plate for that & the cpu. I won't bother going any further I don't think.

Good luck with your build. Watercooling is fun and addictive!
Isn't it the truth! I keep finding things I want & need to focus on just getting the things I need to get this project finished so I can move on to my i7 gear. I still have one order to get from NCIX this week then a big order from Perf PCS to finish it all off.

I am so tempted to ditch the HAF 932 and build on the CM690.

Now if I figure out a away around this problem, I will probably do.

How would I go to plumb for dual external mounts in a CM690? There are only 2 tubing holes available, and I need 4 since I have 2 loops.

I don't have a dremel at the moment.

If you have a drill to run a pilot hole through this little gadget works pretty slick! I plan to pick one up soon for builds upcoming.

Cool. What size? I'm thinking 13/16 would be a good fit without getting near to my 3/4in OD tubing.

Thanks by the way

FWIW those punches (if the dies are half decent) make the cleanest hole you're going to get easily. We use a hydraulic version all the time at work and I cringe having to use a hole saw.

Wonder if these can be found at local autobody shops maybe? I need someplace in the HRM Halifax/dartmouth area to get one of these. Princess auto maybe? hmm

True..they do ship to canada. However I don't really want to use my CC just yet. I'll check Canadian Tire first

They're sometimes called "Green Lee" hole punches, just for the record. And yeah, they're good at what they do. Just make sure you file the hole or put edging on it afterwards, because the resulting edge is so square it's actually sharp.

Heh Greenlee Punches are going to cost you $$$$$$$ they aren't cheap nor are they to rent.

Your better off renting a 1/2" drill and drilling a hole.

The other option is seeing if you can find a stepdown drill bit that will do a hole large enough. The metal of a case is thin enough you could probably use one.
