Currently my Phenom II X4 955 BE system is enclosed in a Lian Li pc-v1000 case. While the case was a good home for my former Pentium 4 system I now find that its cooling capacity is lacking for the new system without major mods. It also lacks space for a decent water cooling system with out mounting the rad outside or major mods.
The plan is to move the system into a Cooler Master ATCS 840 case with the follow water cooling parts:
I can tell you, I bought the Swiftech 220 Edge kit. It's more money than the XSPC kit but it comes with the MCP35X pump which adjusts speed off PWM power (AWESOME feature) and the Apogee XTL block, as well as the MCR220 QP rad with resevoir. It dropped my temps by at least 10C at full load compared to my Zalman CNPS10X Extreme air cooler.
And there is a 320 kit available since you want to go triple.
I will mount the rad inside the case at the top vent. The case is designed to accommodate up to a 360 rad at this location. The fans will be either mounted on the underside of the rad pushing air up through the rad (preferred) or on top pulling air through the rad. The fan mounting option depends on clearance with the mother board.
Will width of the rad be an issue? Are you planning to, or would you consider running a push/pull configuration on your radiator?
Width is not a problem, but according to this pic rad thickness could be. The rad in the pic is a Themochill PA-120.2, which is 60mm thick. With 25mm thick fans that would be 85mm below the top of case.
Judging by what I saw I would have to say that the Black Ice (55.7mm thick, total thickness with fan 80.7mm) just lost out to the Swiftech (34mm thick, total thickness with fans 59mm). It looks like to me that that the fans mounted below the rad will be just about even with the top edge of the mother board.
I am not planning for a push/pull set-up just yet, maybe later.
If you can fit it, i would definitely get the thickest possible radiator... If the swiftech is the thickest you can go, then i dont think you will be able to go push/pull, unless you mount fans externally on the top of the case.
