Default Looking for WC parts.

I'm designing a new case for myself from the ground up. However I'm still looking for certail parts:
- a radiator, something like a BIX 2, but thinner. The BIX is 44mm thick, and I'd like something a bit less if possible.

- Waterblocks with 90 elbow fittings. I have very little space in this setup, so I can't use ordinairy fittings.
Is it possible to mod a dangerden or simmilar with new fittings?

That's it for now. I'll keep you updated.

modding an RBX with 90C fittings will impact the performance a LOT as this block performs best when water can enter at high speeds onto the center of the block. maybe check out this very compact swiftech block Battle of the Titans III:Cooler Master Hyper6 vs SP-94

height is the problem, so I NEED those 90 fittings. The swiftech block with angled fittings might do, but this one will definitly NOT.
I wasn't thinking about an RBX, but more in the line of older dangerden models.
For an idea, I have about 4-5CM above the socket before I hit the PSU. If I move the PSU up, the case will get too wide or my liking.
Unless someone knows a GOOD, SILENT and fairly priced slim PSU.

It's not really a high pref cooling. It just has to keep my system cool like my zalman CNPS 7000 is doing now. But in less space and less noise.

CNPS7000 @ low noise is as silent as it gets, pump + 120mm @ low speed will equal noise

take a look at this review of a DD maze versus other wb blocks http://www.procooling.com/reviews/ht...iew_-_4_11.php

it's running full speed now, and it's huge on the CPU.
Some low speed 120mm on a big rad should do the trick.

I'm mainly looking to reduce my PC in size for LAN parties, without going to shuttle systems.

a black ice micro 2 is about 45 mm thick and works with 80 mm fans

and a black ice pro is about 25 mm thick but works with 120 mm fans

what's the problem with 90 fittings?

the 90 corners only add some resistance and the water enters the block as usual. or not?
