    Lian Li PC65 and water cooling?

    Has anyone got a water cooling setup in their Lian Li PC65? If so what rad are you using and whats the best way of fitting it all in? Has anyone got pic's? I am thinking of putting one in mine but, it looks a bit cramped and I cant decide what parts to get, so any help would be appreciated.

    I have an Asetek Waterchill cpu cooler in my PC65. I haven't got any pics at the moment, but the radiator sits ontop of a stealthed cdrw in the 5 1/4" bays, and the pump/res sits under than 3 1/2" bays.

    Currently building a dangerden based external watercooler, so the waterchill will be cooling a server soon.

    All my bays are full so I cant put it there. Out of interest though, how are you keeping the rad cool up there? I was wondering if I could fit it to the roof and have the 80mm fan on top blowing through the rad?

    BTW. I was thinking of getting the Maze4 Specialist Bundle which contains the following:

    1x Danger Den Maze4 Lucite Top with 1/2" fittings & Mounting Kit
    1x Black Ice Evo Pro
    1x 120mm Sunon Fan
    1x Eheim 1048 Water Pump
    1x Danger Den Reservoir
    1.5m Clear 1/2" Hose
    8x Nylon Hose Clamps
    1x Water Wetter
    1x UV Florescent Water Dye

    I thought £169 was a good price. Any thoughts on the above kit?

    That's a pretty rock solid kit there, chap. You should be able to get measurements for each of the components (radiator/pump/res) from the DD website, coolercases or coolermiester (by email) if you can't find them. This will help you plan out the layout of your case and where everything goes etc. Got to make sure you can sacrifice the room for it before you buy everything

    My PC65 has a 120mm blowhole in the top, I was going to mount my radiator there, but I decided to keep a fan there to expel the air sucked in through the radiator. The Radiator has a papst sucking cool air through the bezels, this does restrict airflow a little, but if I need a little more cooling power, I can just remove them.

    If you plan on keeping the 80mm blowhole in the roof, it will restrict the airflow through the radiator. My suggestion (if you plan on mounting the radiator in the roof) would be to cut yourself a 120mm hole and use the sunon fan with the radiator. You might find that if you have a cd drive or similar in the top bay, the radiator/fan will block it from being inserted all the way in.

    Or, if you can find the space, cut yourself a hole in the bottom of the case and mount the radiator there. So the air will be sucked in through the bottom.

    Thanks for the advice Theo, I will get all the measurements and have another look at the possibilities. Jack that looks like a fantastic job you have done there.
