140mm Rad and Corsair 800D, possible? - Page 2

post #11 of 29
i actually extensively searched this for my case. It seems the koolance 30fpi is the only one that might fit. The Magicool 140mm, despite saying its 142mm, its actually 145/146mm. Found this out the hard way yesterday when it came in my order.... This was even after i got a reply from them before and they said it was 142...freaking isnt hard to hold a ruler to it and see its 145/146.

I had a Xflow 120mm there, what a pain and totally not worth it


I don't know how a 140mm could possible fit inside the case... it is as easy as getting a tape measure and get the spex of the rad you want to put back there.

I had a Swiftech MCR120 there and that was the max that would fit. A 140mm fan is rubbing against the edge of the case, no way a 140mm rad will fit internally, but you could try an external 140 there.

Ah, that's a bit disappointing on their part, I also have read 142 from some sources and 146 from others, I was hoping it would be confirmed as 142 but apparently no luck there. Thanks for letting me know! Hope you can get something sorted out with it.

Well, as discussed, the rad would have to be no wider than the fan frame, and a couple of 142mm wide ones might exist, but even then, according to Stevedawg, Magicool's info is incorrect and they are 146 wide. I Have read on Koolance's site that theirs is 133mm wide, that seems strange, but it does look smallish. Sadly that is a 30FPI rad, and I think I'd be better off with a 120 rad and a 120mm fan so I can keep the noise low, as I believe (though I don't specifically know), that a 8-9 FPI 120mm rad with a decent but quiet 120mm fan would perform better than a 30 FPI 140 rad with a low noise / low airflow fan. Actually, would anyone know if this is true? EDIT: Keeping in mind that the Koolance 140 30 FPI is only 30mm thick, whereas, say, the XSPC RX120 is 58.5mm thick, but 8 FPI.

get one of those and do a 120mm rad. theres no way a 140 will fit because the rad will actually be bigger than 140mm.

although you can use 140mm fans with two of those adapters if you want.
Those duct adapters leave big ole gaps, gaping ones.

a thick 360 and 240 rad seems like it'd be good enough for the majority of things.. You could always just go with a 120mm in the back, or mod the top for a 480 since you're modding the bottom for a 240.

I don't have to see the bottom . Also, don't really like the look of the 480 rad mods on the top. Anyway, who knows? Looking at some of Skineelabs reviews, it seems that 30FPI rads perform quite badly at sub-1300RPMish fans, for 120mm rads... I think that the performance would actually end up very similar between the 140 rad with low speed fan but high FPI, and a 120 with low speed fan and low FPI, so I might end up just going for the RX120 and put that in there.

Que? The look is as good or appealing as the grill you choose to go with, imo. My 480 setup looks better than stock. Anyways a RX120 in the back is a fine compromise. You could even stick a 360 in the bottom if you use a short psu.

Yeah, I considered a 360 in the bottom, but I'm looking to maybe have an AX1200 in there, so it wouldn't fit. Also I already have 2 TFC 240 rads, so ATM, I'll be replacing one, if I got 2 360 rads, I'd replace both, which seems a bit wasteful... Though I would if I had to.

The 480 mount on top can look good, but to make it look as nice as I'd want, would be more effort in modding that I am prepared to put in, I think. Though I will look into it.
