The Antec's 330mm is sure, since i have it

Look for H80 reviews. I am pretty sure they are 300mm.

I already looked at a lot of reviews, but it seems nobody bothered to check the tube length.
Big mistake on a reviewer's part IMO...

L.E. Scratch that, I managed to find one review where the measured length is 9.5" or around 24cm. A bit short but I think it might just fit.

Finally got my system up and running. It was a tight fit with the long 6950 so had to fabricate a fan/radiator bracket.

All in all i am very happy with this system, and im so happy i went with this board.

Still trying to find a good 24/7 clock for the cpu, so far it looks like i can run at 4.8ghz'ish on about 1.38v with temps in the low 60's - prime95.

some pics:











specs are in my sig below....

No idea. I unplugged everything and unscrewed the mobo from my case to install my HSF (left the ram in) and when I went to start it back up, it wouldn't boot at all and the DRAM indicator light was on. I cleared CMOS to no avail and switched the sticks around to different slots trying to determine if it was a bad stick or a bad slot. One of the sticks appeared to be bad but then it magically booted with both sticks in and haven't had an issue since. I have the 1600 sticks with timings and voltage manually set

Unless you have a specific case airflow path you are looking for, you could always switch the fans around so that they pull air from the opposite side of the radiator.

Could someone please help me out and measure their H80 tubes with a piece of string? I'm interested in the length from these marked points:

Worst case ... the ends are barbed and you COULD just take off the tubing and install LONGER tubing ... I know it's more work and you'd have to refill the system, but I've seen people mod the Corsair units before, looked to be similar to doing basic water cooling unit just cheaper. But again that's a WORST CASE scenario , most likely you'll figure out a way to get it working without doing that, like maybe an extra fan shroud installed in front to extend you another 10mm or something. Using something like this ...


================================================== =====================

EDIT:
WOW ... glide 1 ... that's one of the cleaner setups I've seen, impressive great custom cable work also, you do it yourself ? or buy them pre-made somewhere ? either way VERY NICE !

EDIT #2:
Btw, Kvjavs, my Owners list update for you - http://www.overclock.net/14777610-post2385.html - is current as of 9/3/2011 @ 1:30 pm PST includes up to "glide 1's" build photo updates.

@Ovlazek Thanks, but reversing the fans wouldn't do any good either, as they would be sitting right beneath the PSU and recirculating some/most of its air.
I am confident that they are long enough for me to mount the rad at the front of the case, and if not I could always use a shroud or something similar.

@LA_Kings_Fan I was thinking exactly the same Let's hope it won't come to that, although refilling the system might not be a bad idea seeing how many people complain about air inside...

I almost forgot, this is the review I found where the tube length is measured (just in case anyone else needs it).

BTW ... thanks again to EVERYONE who offered up helpful advice and comments on my quest for a new Graphics Card ... I finally got lucky late Thursday night/Friday Morning at 2 am pst on NewEgg when the TOXIC HD 6950 was in stock again for a minute, and I grabed one, and the 2 free games, and the rebate ... so hopefully I'll pick it up on Tuesday and report back.
