I'm looking for people's experience using EKWB radiators et al. in the View 71. I'm trying to decide if it's wise to try to max out thermal dissipation capacity or go for a less cramped fit. Any examples you guys may have from personal experience or found of others would be much appreciated. Also, I'm baffled by the space to mount radiators and fans, since there would be a very poor seal w/major loss in CFM. I saw one mention of this by of someone who used a Dremel tool to customize the case further. I'd be interested to hear how others dealt with this (or didn't). tia
My first attempt at hard tubing in the X71, I tried to fit a EK-CoolStream CE 280 double at the top and a EK-CoolStream CE 420 Triple at the front but couldn't get the top one in because of clearance. Tubing is not the best and no where near straight, I'm thinking of redoing that centre tube coming from the out port of the CPU block back to the res. And it being my first hard tubing go, I wasted quite a bit of tube. My advice is plan and measure your tube routs carefully first before turning the heat gun on. I'm a little disappointed in this case, however I'm going to try and make the best of it. Just finished leak testing/flushing last night, will post some more pics/videos of final fill and bleed later tonight. Thanks for looking ***UPDATE*** Added a 320 CoolStream and the Titans to the loop re did all the hardline bar one, got away with shortening it... More Pics:

Hey guys whats up I'm Nick from Dirty South PC Mods. We were given this awesome Core V1 Mini ITX Case to Mod by the generous folks here at Thermaltake. This one is going to be called "Dexter" First up I would like to thank my sponsors and supporters Thermaltake You can see more awesome Tt stuff here http://www.thermaltakeusa.com/ LutroO Customs Check out all the awesome sleeving gear here http://lutro0-customs.com/ Specs Case - Thermaltake Core V1 ITX Mobo - EVGA Stinger Z77 ITX CPU - Intel 3770K /w EK Block Ram - 8Gb (4Gb x 2) G.Skill 2133Mhz /w EK Block GPU - EVGA GTX 660Ti 2Gb /w EK Block PSU - Thermaltake Toughpower Grand 1050W PSU SSD - OCZ Vertex 4 120Gb Fans - Thermaltake Luna 20 LED 200mm x 2 and Thunderblade Rv2 80mm x 2 Phobya 200mm Extreme Radiator Magicool 160mm (80mm x 2) Radiator Swiftech DDC Pump /w Bitspower Pump top Primochill Flow indicator Monsoon Econo line Rigid fitings Monsoon Blood Red PMMA Rigid Tubing First up doing a quick dry fit to see if all the parts I want to use will fit. And it looks like they will. The 200mm Radiator however will need a bit of coaxing. Ok so now that I know that the parts that I wan't to use will fit. Drilled out the rivets that hold the Mobo plate in place so I can mod it to fit the 200mm Radiator and to prep it for paint. Using a Right angle grinder with a cut off wheel to remove the small part support on the left so the Radiator will fit. Luckily the HDD drive cage will make up for the lack o support there. After that was cut off we switch to a Flapper Wheel on the grinder to smooth out the edges. Once that part was removed the 200mm Radiator will fit with enough room to do a push/pull fan setup Oh man that is a super tight fit..Running that 24 pin is going to be fun Alright time to get this bad boy ready for paint. When sanding your case for paint. There is no need to go all the way down to the metal just take the shine off. And there we have a white Core V1. Now we need to get the Thermaltake Toughpower Gold 750W PSU headed in the right direction. There we go much better. Painted the SSD/HDD Caddy with Banner Red. Thermaltake was gracious enough to send me two of the 200mm Luna Red LED fans. Thanks guys All the Hardware (minus the 160mm rad it is drying its paint) Having a bit of fun with Tt Dude . Going for a blood splatter effect I think it came out rather well. check out the reflection off of the mirrored floor. With all the hardware crammed in there you can bet it was no easy task to get that hard-line in there. After a successful leak test here we go. Had to get the rigs all shined up for a Local Rock show. Had the Thermaltake Core V1 "Dexter" and Urban T-81 "Man of Steel" folks were really digging on the Core V1. Still need sleeve the cables and do some detail work on the inside to get it ready for HorrorCon
