Question, in my cm-690, instead of putting 120.2 on top ( which is you guys said it really needs a drill and cutting), you think it might be good if i put 2x 120.1 rad, one on the top and one on the back of the case using a loop of tubing?

Good news! I just got a nice fat benefits cheque from the insurance company (I had forgotten about that claim!)

Time to buy some WC parts!

A question, how many feet of tubing should I buy?

buy 20ft. You will have a ton left over, and not worry about cutting too long or anything.

Alright, seems like a lot, but 20 it is...


I just ordered my Fuzion. Found it in stock at Jab-Tech

Anyway, I'm putting together an order of some stuff from NCIX.

I might split it into 3 or something so it's more manageable.

I think I'll go with the Microres.

I think I could put a fillport on top of my A900 and a drain on the floor of the case.

Having the rad in the front is pretty much a writeoff, so it goes on the outside after all.

awesome. Now that your project is well under way you should start a work log so we can all drool of the watercooling.

I'm still a bit confused about the res situation. Could I install the Micro-res with a fillport at the top of the case? Then run a tube from there to the pump. After the pump, a y-junction with a split for a drain and a line to the rad.... then the rest of the loop.

I think I need to get a photo of my case and do some photochopping....

EDIT: I just had a thought... I bet I could fit that radiator in the front part of my Ninehundred under the hard drives and use the front fans to pull the air out...

I might have to sacrifice an optical drive...hmmm... food for thought.

I guess I should start by ordering the rad and components and see if they'll fit. Time to take some measurements.
No need for a fillport when using the Micro-res.

Excellent...

What about a drain? Leaving that out would probably make life easier...

I should also look at what I'm going to put in it... distilled water is supposedly the best. Although in keeping with my Red/Black theme, maybe some red coolant in there would look nice. (or some black!)

I think I'll have to keep my 8800GTX for the time being, since this project will use up the money I had benchmarked for a new GPU, but this is definitely more worth it...
