^^^ I've been doing a lot of "searching".....I would like to somehow be able to "make use" of my TJ09 Case....

Ginger: Yes, the 480's do produce a lot of heat...for example...the Stock Fan set at 80% and furmark will easily bring these GPU's to 100c within 20 min.

Here's a link to my Case.....designed for:
1 x 240 Rad up top

Thier appears to be Rad Mounting holes on the 120mm GPU Fan Intake shroud (and lots of room)

The only other place I see accessible for a small 120mm rad is the Top rear exhaust.

Perhaps NOT WC the Board Chipset and just go with the GPU's and CPU somehow....although it would sure be nice to cool this Evga Classified Chipset with Water as well..

well this is where i would start to place rads put a double in the top then a double in the back see.

Then if 2x double rads don't work you can always hang 1 off the back and size really does not matter to much

on the back. good thing with double rads is later on they can become a double if needed. just a thought

The CM ATCS 840 can be had for $150 US plus $50 shipping (refurb) from Coolermaster. There is a review of it on HWC. Zero just picked one up (he took advantage of the free shipping deal...that deal is now done). No fees when it arrived.

The case is huge....bigger than the HAF I used above. As you see in the pic, the 360 rad is inside the case...what you don't see is that there are 6 fans on that internal rad, and still room left over. The ATCS would have a little more room than that, but the HAF might be able to accommodate another rad on the bottom or rear. (that is if you decide a new case is in order)

While maintenance is on your mind..... don't forget to get your rad(s) out of there and remove the fans so that you can get rid of the dust bunnies which breed on the rad.

If I have a loop together for over 2 months it is a miracle.

ya have found dust bunnies will effect your temps a little too so it's a good idea to clean

Well, ripped my precious rig apart to make it more precious again.

Current changes: (Old ---> New)

1. 2x GTX 285s water cooled ---> 2x GTX 460s 1GB air cooled (until Xmas..WC at that time)

2. Alphacool Niagara ---> Heatkiller 3.0 Cu

3. Bay Res ---> EK 150 multioption tube res

4. Swiftech 655 ---> Swiftech 655 with EK Top v2

5. HAF 932 ---> ATCS 840

Also picked up a few compression fittings for the first time (any advice on using these?) Also not using a fan controller. I just kept the last controller on full anyways.

Also cleaned out the rad with very hot water until the water was clear. Using distilled water with Dazmode protector (glycol?)

Hopefully I have her leak testing tomorrow night and ready to fold by the weekend.

Tighten the tubing end down until there's about a 2 mm gap between the base and ring. Use a rag to protect your silky soft hands from the knurling on the fittings.
