I have a question, I want to do an internal water cooling setup in a Cooler Master Cosmos Case, heres a pic of the case
I'm thinking about doing a setup like this
I'm wondering if first off this will be possible, I think it will be but i'm just wondering. Also do you think it would be better to have the pump closer to the PSU, by the 240 rad or up top right under the 5.25 inch bays.
or should I just have one of the rads outside? I would much prefer it being internal, but if it won't work like that then thats ok.
Any ideas, criticisms, or help would be much appreciated.
BTW... if you don't get it, there's a triple rad, a double rad, and a single rad. And i'd be using a mcp655 pump with the micro res from swiftech
As long as your T-line/fill port or reservoir is higher than your pump inlet, you should be fine. That is kind of a weird place for a res (referencing your diagram vs. the case pic) If you are really set on a res, consider a 5.25" bay res; I used one for a couple years and does what it is supposed to do.
Looking at that case, you might find it pretty cramped in there with what you are wanting to do...unless that case is deceptively large. I have a Gigabyte Aurora, which is pretty big tower...and I have my rads external...no way they would fit inside.
Edit: Also, how are you going to mount a 3x120mm res to a 2x120 mount at the top? That might require you making some kind of custom mount...and it might screw with your intended airflow. I would suggest some thick plexi and make you an adapter plate if you want to consider this...easy to cut, drill and is strong and light.
I know loop flow isn't a huge deal, but maybe consider running your pump straight to your CPU, then your top rad, then down to NB, GPU, etc.
