This is my second watercooling revision. Started with 11/8 tube and EK pump, only push on radiator. It was ok, but its fun to improve so, I did, and now its better.
First of all I just took the chassis apart and used my Dremel to remove the lover 3 cm metal under the 5,25 bays. Second of that I had to remove the upper part USB, Jacks, and also the plate with on/off button and USB plugs.
When putting stuff together again I dismounted all the original fans and left the chassis without fans in these places. When the setup is finished I like the FANS in the front to blow the cold air through the radiator directly through the chassis and cool all the parts.
Unfortunately I broke one of the GFX adapters under installation. Be carefull when you pull the heatcover of them. The heat cover sit tight and suddenly slip. I lost the card on the floor, and it's dead. On the pictures it is the upper one that died.
Functional parts are now in place. Pump and reservoir needs some adjustment to remove ressonance which is the only thing that can be heard now.
