Oh so you are getting a dual 120mm rad, right ? Cuzz a single 120 won't cut it for you sswilson. I'd get nothing else than a MCR220 and if you have the space, for 2$ more you can get the MCR320... Might want to get a rad-box from Swiftech to hook the rad behind the case.

Heh......

Easy way to bump my $160 order up to $200 before taxes + shipping and handling... :)

wonder if I can come up with a way to mount that on top without the radbox.....

Need to find some form of bolt stock with a screw on the end that would fit into the rad case.... (like the brass hooks you can buy to screw into the wall, but with bolt stock attached to the screw rather than a hook.... :) ).

The 240 would fit better... but I'd hate to miss out on an extra 120 worth of cooling for $2..... :)

Good way of thinking. Me looking forward for this build. BTW: Home Depot, Rona and any other kinda like store will do for the screws.

Placed my order this evening.......

D-TEK Customs 1/2IN G1/4 Chrome High Flow Barb Fittings (Pair) X2

Clearflex 60 Tubing 1/2IN ID 7/8IN OD 10 Feet

Pts Petra PT_NUKE Concentrated Biocide Water Additive for Water COOLING(10ML)

Swiftech MCP655 12V Industrial Water Cooling Pump 1/2IN Barbs

Swiftech MCR320 Quiet Power Water Cooling Radiator Black G1/4 Threaded

Swiftech MCRES-MICRO Clear HI-FLOW Water Cooling Reservoir 3/8IN & 1/2IN Barb Fittings

Swiftech Smartcoils 625 Blue X2

Yate Loon D12BL-12 120MM Quiet Cooling Fan 1200RPM 45CFM 24DB 3PIN & 4PIN Ball Bearing OEM X3


Apparently I got my order for the Yate Loons in just before the price went back up........ :)

Now it's time for the waiting and planning.

It's going to be another top mount with the fitting end of the rad hanging slightly over the back of the case to allow the tubing to go straight down (might look into a 90 deg. fitting to bring it straight into the back....).

I've got somebody who's going to bend some SS stock for me (reverse the top and bottom of a "Z" for general shape) to raise and mount to the top of the case. I figure 5 pieces of stock on each side (first 5 fan screw holes) will give me plenty of stability / support.

I'm digging through my old audio gear for a suitable volume control which should be able to handle 3 or 4 fans in parallel.

On top of that.... I've been sitting on a bunch of flush mount windows kits for the last 6 months so my lian-li is going to get top and side flush mount windows along with the 4 UV Leds (5 per) I ordered when I picked up my Water Block last month.

Sooooooo........ like I said.... not much to do now but wait....... :)

Heh.....

Got the dreaded "your order has partially shipped, backordered items will be shipped at no cost to you when they become available" e-mail.......

Thinking the worst, I went over the shipping manifest and discovered that the 1 backordered item is the second set of smartcoils I ordered just to be safe.......... :)

Yahoo!!!!! So now we just wait for Puralotor ground to get this thing from one end of the country to the other...... :)

I hate you willy!

I ordered the same smartcoils from ncix just after you, they showed in stock, but seeing as my order hasnt shipped I am assuming this is the reason why.

Damn and ncix is out of fuzion cpu WB's too, I was going to order the rest of my parts this sat, guess I will be waiting until more come in
