You won't get any "decent" watercooling case for 100$ m8. Sorry!

But yeah... Any case around that price range can house watercooling stuff...If modded. If you think you have some skills with a jigsaw and\or dremel, maybe you could get some cheap case and mod the hell out of it to make all your watercooling stuff fit in it. But it'll be a pain to keep everything internal.

yes those are load temps, and for a pump a fish tank one, then weld together box for it. Then u add water and have a water tight gasket with wire for power coming out ( similar to this
The Reservoir and Pump
Not all systems need a reservoir, however it is easier to maintain your system if you do have one. If you like, you can buy a pre-made reservoir. The websites listed under the Waterblock information all carry them. The alternative to pre-made, is to build one yourself. They are very easy and cheap to make, so we will show you how. You can pick up all the materials at Home Depot, and here is what you will need:
QUANTITY - DESCRIPTION (Click any description for an example photo)
1 - 6"x6"x4" Electrical junction box
1 - 3/8" male brass hose barbs
2 - 3/8" femal brass hose barbs
1 - Submersible fountain pump (with atleast a 100gph rating!)
1 - Roll of teflon tape
1 - Tube of silicone sealant
1 - Short piece of 3/8" ID tube a few inches in length
1 - Roll of electrical tape
2 - Small hose clamps
1 - Gallon of distilled water (under a dollar at any grocery store - no picture)

cherrs
rvc

edit: probably wont actually put in case till later just want experince and it will give me something to do when young ones are at summer camp.

Internal vs External Rad setup

Okay looking at my Tt Armour case I had wanted to put my rad hright up at the front, the problem i have is I run 2 I-cages, it's a metal hdd cage that has a 120mm fan atached to it, but if I leave these in I will see the rad and fans.



As you can see the whole rad+ fans will be very visable, I dont want that, while seeing part of the rad would be fine the whole thing is to much IMO.
So what are the differences between a internal mount and doing a radbox?
If I do do ( I said DO-DO ) a radbox what is the maximum distance I want between these?
This thread is my parts thread.
