Default [Project] Water Hybrid

Hardware List Final


For as long as most of you guys have known me, I have never really had a fully functioning water rig, very recently Mr. OCM was kind enough to help me out with some water gears I should have a full rig up and running very soon.

Waiting on USPS to drop off the package right now

Here is some of my ideas...


Back of my case



Because it is a tiny case both of the rads has to be mounted out side of the case.

As up to now I am taking all suggestions on where should i mount the rads at


I did this picture laying on the ground so kinda look a little funky


As the picture showed above the one of the side will not open so the rads has to be mounted on the open sides.

After looking at Mr.OCM's new post the mesh I have always been a huge fan see though side and was thinking about mesh the opening side and have the rad just hang on by the mesh not 100% how well will that hold up, I'd love to have some feed back on that.

I will be running 2 rads, 1 pump a full rig with 1 CPU, 1 GPU, and Chipsets

I would mount one on the top and one off the reaer fan if it were me. Connecting a rad and lines to a removable section of the case is a clear mistake as far as I am concerned.

What Size rads are you using? tri on top for GPUs and a dual on the back would be good for CPU.

Is this goig to be a gamer ??? as water pretty much blows for benching other than 1155. Jury is still out for 2011 if water will be as effective on this platform.

I think you will have a lot fun building this ..................

Kiki,

I tried top and bottom, it works but it makes you case longer and taller. make sure you have enuf clearance for it to cool correctly.

I hung mine on the sides which worked out quite well. I used extra tubing outside so each side panel could be removed and swung completely out of the way. you could also use Koolance quick disconnects.

where you gonna fit the pump(s) and resv(s)

Can't wait to see your pics bro

Here was the old "BattleStar" build

I will be having 3 3x120mm rads, there will only be 2 used in this build, it is mainly for movies and some gaming, but more importantly it's going to be used as an office machine so it has to look professional as it can be (all the lights has on/off switch installed ), that's why i went from my sexy looking Thermaltake Xaser VI to this Antec Sonata case.

I'd say this system is 75% work and school, 25% gaming since I have a 40in TV hooked up to it so there is some kind of movie play at all time. But there are times I can feel the computer just don't have enough power like when i am playing Black Ops and watching a 1080p based movie and it needs to be overclocked from 333FSB to 400/420 to have it run smoothly, but that extra 80 something mhz will heat up the system from already hot enough 60C on load to 80C i haven't had that temp since I dumped my Pentium 4 3.0E

MD tbh that setup of yours got me the idea of doing it side by side

I have OVERCLOCKAHOLICS written on top of the case and OCALLIANCE on the open side that's why i canceled my first idea about doing it on the top but that's no big deal i can always re do it

OH and for Chiller......
My camera is broken cuz i took too many dirty pictures this summer now it's been in repair for 10 weeks now as soon as it comes back I'll be spaming this place with pictures
For now I'll just use the iphone instead

Picture update

Placing the rad on the upper side of the open side


Placing the rad on the lower side of the open side





As I was thinking, here is another idea

That way there is no tubing will be showing out side of the computer.
