Re: Noob water cooling question....does this sound right
You are being a huge help in giving me ideas, thanks. I have almost made up my mind on going with the dual 120's and just mounting it completely outside the case, probably bolt it down to my desk with some 3" or so spacers to keep it off the wood that should give me more than enough ambient airflow I would think and that DD12v pump should have no issues with the added pressure needed for the little bit of extra distance(at least I would hope). As for fans I was thinking along the same lines as you and going with the aluminum evercools that dangerden has, they are supposed to do 80cfm at a tolerable 30db(I say tolerable because right now I am listening to a 92mm vantec tornado at 56.4db). Maybe I will do some research on fans first because thinking about it that vantec is muffled by the case and those 120's would be sitting outside the case. I'll check out Jab-Tech and see what they have.
