I guess a 20cm atx 24pins will be enough.
However for more specific values why are you not making a mock up, measuring all required lengths and order/build customed cables?

I figured I’d get a ball figure before moving forward with measurements.

Hey All,

Got my build underway! Turns out the ATX PSU that I had will not fit with my res mounted to the front rad/fan combo... so I ordered an SFX-L PSU last night... Hopefully be able to get this guy booted up next week...

Modifying the Heatkiller tube wasn't too bad. Took a bit of time and fortunately have a friend that has a ton of tools that was willing to help me out.

More details are embedded in each picture below.

So I've got the hydrocopper installed and hooked into the bottom part of the loop. Question -- can I have the out line going through the opposite side of the inlet into the CPU block or is that what they mean by not connecting them on the same side due to severe performance penalties?

EDIT: nevermind, there's a nice chart in the install media (RTFM...) that shows it'd be a bad idea.


Also, I bought an in-line temp probe thinking that my motherboard had an input for the two pin connector, turns out it doesnt. Any elegant way of attaching it to my system?

Solved my other temp control question, ordered a Aquacomputer Aquaero 6 LT that I'll hide in the bottom front of the case or behind the cross bar.
