140mm Rad and Corsair 800D, possible? - Page 3

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.
Contact fshizl via PM- he cuts the 800D tops if you want. You derivet, send him the the top and grill you want and he does the work

With a little patients, planning and a dremel its not too hard and can look good also.

I cut the top out of my old Xclio windtunnel (triple rad), and the current 700D(quad rad) i have..

That being said, everytime when i get done i i tell myself i am not ever doing it again and just gonna pay someone to do it for me lol. Personally i would cut a 480 so you can maximize the cooling. There is never such a thing as too much radiator when it can easily be stored internally and look nice IMHO

Cutting the top is not hard at all. Just takes a dremel and some patience. You can follow any of the youtube vids to help you along.

Shipping it to the US might be a little prohibitive, cost-wise, for me. I think I can do it myself though, with some patience.

Unfortunately, I do not have a dremel, and I don't really want to buy one... Though I expect that a jigsaw with appropriate blade would work well. My father has one, and he or I could do it pretty easily I reckon (he's a carpenter now, and used to be a panelbeater, so he's handy to have around for modding)

I didn't see any on youtube yesterday when I looked, but I will look again. I think you don't even have to be super-neat, because the rad shroud on top would cover your edges. Not to say I wouldn't try to get it perfect anyway...
Looking at this shroud: Phobya Quad Hexagon Radiator Grill, what do you think?

Anyway, I like how this discussion went from trying to fit a 140mm rad into the case to fitting a quad rad and doing some moderate modding, this is classic OCN. Maybe I should try and fit a 3x140mm rad in there, anyone know if they beat a 4x120 for performance with lowish (max 1500RPM) speed fans? Doing that would make the drive bays still accessible (not that I need them now, but in the future, who knows?).

That's the grill I use. It fits and looks perfect with the stock hex grill look. I can take a pic if you want. Rad fan diameter between 120 vs 140 has little difference. I'd still recommend going with a 480.

The grill comes satin black iirc, but I painted it flat black to blend with the stock paint.

I missed that you were down under....

As for the jigsaw, it'll cut the 800D like butter with the right blade, my layout was bad for mine so the cuts weren't great, but the saw worked wonders. You'll want a good file handy too to clean the edges.

I'm back to mention that if your considering either a 4x120 or a 3x140 why not man up and go for a 4x140?!?!? Hey this really is OCN isn't it?

Like I said I know very very little about watercooling but I never really liked the idea of being limited to just 120 wide and having to go super long for increased cooling (I do know despite my inexperience that 120 is the most common for compatibility reasons but still if you are going as massive as 120x4 then compatibility be damned IMO), that's why a something by 140 makes more sense to me. That's why some of the 120x3x3 (so 9 120s in a square or even better just 4 180s in a square) external rad boxes look cool to me.

Sweet build there man! The grill looks cool. I'd paint it flat black too, probably got a spray can around here somewhere.

Thanks, noted. I like how I went from looking for a little bit of advice on a little rad, to doing a decently sized mod for a monster rad... I guess it's not hard when that's what I really wanted though.

I thought about that, I really did, unfortunately, my absolute main priority is keeping it completely internal, and there's only about 550 length across the top of the case, and the 560 rads are well... bigger than 560. Anyway, that's probably a bit overkill.

Maybe a bit to late

You can fit a EK 140 rad if you want,I did a mockup for my rebuild and it did fit if you cut one of the windows screws away.


It is like 2-2.5mm to wide but the sidepanel still fits which is the only thing I care about Maybe ill sand the window down to like 1mm thickness later,then it wont be too wide. Maybe somebody knows if there are plexiglass thinner than 3mm?
