RESurrection was one of our builds where we took normal stock items and switched things up a little. The highly rated Cooler Master MasterCase H500P was a preference for this customer who wanted a Thermaltake RL240 Watercooling Kit installed. As standard this wasn’t possible, but at Gorilla Gaming we love challenges and we made it happen.
It took a lot of time to work out the best place to fit the Thermaltake reservoir without ‘hacking’ the case to bits. With it not having a natural place for the reservoir it seemed fit to mount it on the inside of the case with a reservoir/radiator mount. This brought up a challenge where due to the size it wouldn’t fit unless the shroud was removed, which we almost certainly didn’t want to do as we felt this was an essential part of the case.
After many different attempts and placing the reservoir in lots of possible, impossible and damn right silly places we weren’t getting anywhere, until we took a step back stared at the case from the front on and ‘ping’ the penny dropped… ‘Let’s mount the reservoir on the front and showcase it’.
Although the idea seemed easy ‘doing it’ was far from it. We had to meticulously measure and custom make a bracket, in our Gorilla Lab, within millimeters of our measurements to make it fit perfectly. Once we’d completed this task the rest was easy, we fitted the two large 20cm fans to the top and ensured there was still enough air-flow. After putting the build through its passes we were satisfied with the air-flow and temperature and let the beast loose.
