HAF-X, will it fit this?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I am thinking about getting rid of my old case (an Antec 900) and replacing it with a HAF-X

I don't have any qualms with the Antec 900, I think its a great case for up and coming enthusiasts, and I can place sole responsibility for me becoming an enthusiast on that transparent window. Yah, its not original and its not the only computer to have it. But being able to see the inside of a computer fascinated me, and one second I had no interest in the difference in computer hardware and the next... well here I am.

But with a triple fan radiator there is just too little space and I have had to keep every part of my loop except the CPU block on the outside of my case.

I know it has lots of room, but I'd just like to hear it from someone that has one, can it fit my current setup? As well as avoid having the water cooling tubes kink up?

Especially a GTX-480 due to its length.

The GTX480 will not be a problem. As far as the water cooling bits go it will fit a 360 up to a certain thickness so it really depends what rad you've got. The tubing wont be any issue either.

i would figure the 480 would fit in the HAF-X since the HAF-X is the biggest case in the HAF series.

The HAF X was even designed to fit the EVGA SR-2 board with liquid cooling. You can even put the longest cards in there from the 580, 590, 5970, and 6990 and they will still fit.

Have a 580 lightning in my haf x with RX360Rad fitted at the top, but do note you're only able to screw 4 holes onto the rad.
