i'm upgrading from a evo 212 to a water cooler will there be at list 10-15C decrees from a 212 to a h100 or Water 2.0 extreme on a i7 2600k/i5 2500k .Do you guys think it will fit on a RAIDMAX AEOLUS http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...(Computer%20Cases%20-%20ATX%20Form)-_-Raidmax-_-11156252&AID=10440897&PID=3938566&SID=
i also feel like buying a new case so i wont need to upgrade in the future, any suggestion 150$ max budget and on a liquid cooler 130$ max budget.
I never checked the links Rubix, at work on mobile :-)
@Op, thermatake water=EVIL!
Avoid like you owe it money, but even the H100 won't give you the 10'c drop you are after, a lot is dependant on ambient temps
The Df is another good case, its up to you which you like the look of really, once you get to a certain pricepoint, most cases perform very closely,
And if you went for a 360 kit it gives you more headroom to add a gfx card into the loop in future
If you check the sticky out up top, take your time and do things right, there is no reason that it could, or would leak,
You may find a 360 tough to squeeze inside there, it could be tight on the front panel (which is mounted on the top)
had you considered a topmount for the rad?
It requires a bit of modding but nothing too heavy :-)
When I say on top, I mean like this, http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/forum2.php?config=t...
I don't mean inside at the top, I mean actually on top of the case, so if you feed the tubing through the grommets at the back, or can drill two 19mm holes underneath the rads ports then you're fine
Thank you for B.a. and post back anything else we can help with,
P.S. as a Rider owner, I expect a build log with pics ok?
one of my last video of my room just cleaning it installing my monitor getting another as well on the 3rd and talking Spanish because my friends in raidcall etc are Spanish http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4623a7Noj7k
