As you can tell i have a NZXT Phantom PC Case and i was just wondering what would be the best options for mounting a XSPC Rasa 750 RS240 Water Cooling Kit?
Dont really want to have to take out my HDD cages because i will be expanding my SSD and Hdd collection in a few months.
I realise I could easily mount the unit on the back of my case but i heard in a few different forums that i could mount it on the top of my case, however i dont know whether it'd be possible to replace the plastic cover on the roof once i've finished installing the cooler?
I'd prefer that the cooler doesnt poke out anywhere where it shouldnt to avoid knocks and whatnot.
Quick Responses will be appreciated if anyone has any photos that show what this installation would look like afterwards please post up here.
I would suggest the Ex240 over the Rs if space is an issue,
but I've seen a Phantom where the two top fans were on the top of the case under the plastic,
then inside the case the rad is next to the roof, and the last set of fans beneath that, it may be in our W/c gallery if I recall,
nah i doubt ill get another card. maybe in the future when i get a better system ill save up for a dual card setup. next time ill plan on a proper colour theme too cause at the moment i've got blue red and black and it looks pretty bad haha although even though the card is a 6970 it still doesnt have as much power as id hoped so ill probably oc that meaning i may need a gpu cooling block later in life.
Tried answering this morning but Toms was being icky,
Yes $10 for a much better rad is well worth it and as the link I posted shows, you can fit it in there with no pokey-out-bits
I would still urge you to avoid the Rs series though, give yourself the maximum cooling for when you add the card (which is a simple matter of draining the loop and adding the Gpu block later, you will already have enough radspace to accomodate the cards heat)
maybe by he time im ready to start with the GPU i could upgrade my rad and pump? I mean im not an overclocking fiend at the moment so ill probably start with the easy stuff then by the time i want more power i can get the better parts? i just need a good basic OC solution at the moment. i dont know if you noticed my other thread? but first i was just considering going the corsair all in one series or a high powered air cooler haha amuffin convinced me otherwise. however i really dont have a high budget. if i were to get the dual fan rad then i'd already be going $10 over my budget
no worries buddy I closed this one off because im about to start a new thread just to iron out final details. hopefully we will be able to find other people who use the same case and share their experiences.
