XSPC RX360 and case HAF-x- Issue

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I will buy a new rad , the RX360 for change my Black Ice GTS 360 Lite ( quite slim) but Im afraid it will not fit inside of the case with fans easily, Any one have any feedback with this rad and the same case? I dont want to mistake and buy something that will not be usable.

The only issue I had was clearance with the mobo and the last fan so I left the last fan off and kept the stock 200mm fan that came with the case as a pull you will lose 3 drive bays the first ans then any two you choose to put your res/pump

Im using a Gigabyte DQ6-X48T. And I guess the problem will be between de long screws of my cpu block ( EK supreme HF) and the fans. At the first loock it seems the fan will touch 2 screws beacouse the cpu is in the edge of the board.

PS: I will keep the two 230 default fans in the top of the case as I have now and keep 3x120 G. Typhoon in the new rad in the bottom .

This guy's build log shows a HAF-X with an RX 360. It fits, but it's tight.

I'm building my loop somewhat similar (just ordered parts yesterday!), but am using a HAF 932 instead. Supposedly the HAF 932 has a bit more clearance (gonna try push/pull if it fits.)

Anyway, in reply to your main question: I've seen many pics of RX 360s fitting. You do lose a bit of space in the top of your 5.25" bays, though.

Thank you for the link, very interesting. I will buy the rad and keep my fingers crossed !!! In any event. I have the feeling install a 6 cm thick rad inside of the HAF -X will be allways a lottery depending basically of the MB model.
