Cheap mod for external mount of AIO radiators

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello, 

The problem I had was that despite having the AIO coolers, I would have to game with the side glass panel off because of the heat.

Also, I really hate having to dust the system often and getting to the radiators wasn’t easy enough for my lazy self.

 

So, this is quite simple. Dremel two rectangular radiator-shaped holes on the top panel grate, put through the rads and fan wires, screw fans in place.

 

Just make sure to smooth all the sharp edges and use rubber gaskets (large 40mm heat shrink tubing cut in half on the length is ok) to prevent scratching the rads and chafe the fan wires.

As soon the quarantine ends, I will get some vinyl instead of the white paper to seal the top.

Few pictures below, any questions or suggestion welcome!

You can get rubber grommets for wires/tubes through sheet metal.  Hardware/farm/home improvement/auto parts should have them by breaker boxes and/or by electrical tools.

 

I think it looks good, did it help temps?

Will have to get them as soon the lockdown ends! Temps are almost 20c less!
