    Hello

    I have a few pictures of my re-jigged watercooling setup.

    It was mostly external but with expected Battlefield 2 LAN's and the impractical external tubes I made it all internal.

    Funky ramsinks!

    Have you got any photos of the hole you cut under the heatercore now it's on top?

    Nice setup mate, looks heaps better than before.

    Oh and the ramsinks... there must be laws against ones that size! lol!
    How on earth do you take out your video card? I struggle to remove mine without those beasty ramsinks. Stupid, stupid chipset fan.

    No photos but the hole was cut with a jigsaw (28cm x 12cm) the rad airflow is not blocked at all.

    I have also reduced the watercooling tubing length by 1/2 :)

    Also I have no problems removing the video card. It is even easier removing it now that the watercooling is not stuck on the side of the panel.

    Now to make a 100% perspex panel for the side of the case.

    :)

    Does double stacking those fans actually make a difference?

    I think he's taken out the blades of 2 of the fans to act like a shroud.

    Hmmm that's smart.... wish I'd thought of that before, since i'm building a shroud as I write this.....

    Like everyone else has said, funky ramsinks. Good work with the tubing, i'm sure having cut down tubing length by 1/2 will increase flow. Using those other two fans without blades as a shroud was genious :thumbup:, overall great work :)
