    Watercooling in a CM201

    Anyone done that?
    Any pics or recommendations / hints?

    I would just like to guage an idea of "compatibility" and "ease" before going out and buying a black widow case.

    All ideas welcomed

    Ive personally got a 201 and im hoping to install watercooling asap. Ive seen someone over at bit tech (cant remember who sorry) had pics of how he had installed his. He had the radiator (BIX iirc) in the top drive bays, ehiem 1250 sat on bottom in the hdd cage.

    I managed to fit a Waterchill kit into a PC65, so I don't see you having to many problems with the CM201

    Thanks Tom, I'll take a look at BT's website...
    It's all a bit on the back burner at the moment: just bought a new car - in metallic Black Magic I must add

    This is a really nice water cooling setup, although he is using a very specialist reservoir.

    Personally, I plan to get a Black Ice Micro 2 radiator (2x80mm) from chill-tek (not sure how to convert from 3/8" to 1/2" though) and after cutting away the front of the HDD brackets, fit if directly at the front of my case. Then either use the same reservoir as Dark Blue in his case, a bay reservoir, or maybe a criticool reservoir on the bottom of the case.
