I just got a 2 cool copper waterblock. I tried fitting it in my old case (heavily modded AT case that I've had for years) I have to have the water tubes sticking straight up (towards the power supply) because if they run over the motherboard either the ram, capacitors, or chipset/capacitors get in the way. ( I am using a asus cusl2) and there isn't enough room in the case to mount the tubes pointing upward, because then they'll kink because the power supply's right there. I guess I should have ordered the version with bent pipes, but it's too late for that. so, now I have an excuse to get a new case (YIPEE) I was thinking about a antec 1030. can anyone tell me if there'll be enough room? I don't want to get a new case if there's not enough room. again, I'm using a asus cusl2, and the cpu's right at the top of the board, so I need a bit of space above the motherboard so that I don't kink the water tubes. if the antek's not a good choice, are there any other suggestions?
