Hello all,

I haven't been following the WC scene lately and have managed to acquire a Lian Li A-10 in black in good nick. Just minor scratches and cosmetic damage really.

My plan is to WC the cpu and I would like to go custom using the XPSC 700 bay res + pump combo but the position of the radiatior seems tricky to work out.

I could put at the back but it just feels like it will be too close to the cpu. Theres a vent at the top but the motherboard sits quite close to the top edge of the case. Certainly no space for rad + fan combo.

Any ideas ?

Do you have the A10 or are you buying one?

Do you use all the drive bays? can you afford to lose the bottom ones or the midd ones?

If so i would either put a 240 in the bottom instead of the HDD's or in the front.

Also I would consider a separate pump. Those XSPC pump combos don't have the longest life span. Bay res and a small 2.2 or 4.0 pump from EK would be enough for a CPU loop.

I already have the case. Picked it up for like £45 which was a bargain.

I could put a 240 at the front but that would use up all the cd rom bays

I'm not sure theres space where the HDD bays are for a 240 will need to measuer properly.

Would be worth looking at you would also need to cut your side panel to do it but it would certainly look sweet if it is possible.

In the end I went for a 120mm EK Rad + XPSC bay res single + EK 2.2 pump.
