that sound good, as long as the 360 in the front fits with the 2 hdds and dual bay res/pump

what do you say for this btw?

mmmm some people say they are really good, I stayed away because my friend got one and it broke some how so I cant really say much about them, He loved it why it worked.

I like the simple turning ones more, More fans into them, its the only thing going into my bays a fan controller, everything else is external (HDs n Optical).

you coudl always also just get a lian HHD bay and put in the xig case like move it more the middle of the case it should fit, or even have them handing a little out fan and rad should leave enough space to get the 1st set of pins in then if your a little worried just make up some support for the back just an idea

Because thats all that will fit with PSU installed,on the bottom at least.In one of your other posts you state that '360mm rad = 4 bays',which bays are you refering to?

Another point worth making is many rads despite being the same 120.3 size do however have different lengths,and tube attatchment should also be considered,i.e how much clearance when the rad is actually put together.

ehh I just keep getting confused more im a step from ordering a SilverStone tj11 instead i need to order this today psu up and a 240, then a 360 at the bottom and a 240 in the front with 2xhdds and a dual 5.25 bay res/pump combo. Does this sound doable without modding?

a 360 on the floor because he asked what will fit if the PSU mounted else where which i take means in the roof not the floor?

I mean if you have the 360 in the front bays it will leave you with 4 optical/hdd bays this is not exact as they do change size etc as you stated.

But with the floor a 360 will definitely fit IF the psu IS NOT on the floor of the case, if the PSU is on the floor only a 120/140 will fit else you mod.

Hope that makes sense

My mistake he did say with the PSU on the floor *FACEPALM*

Oh,i get it now.And yeah its a shame about the PSU mistake for sure,damn good case still.

Just a few images of what I'm thinking about. This is without any physical modding for now. Thinking of either zip strips or 3M double side tape for the 120.2 rad in front. I have a 120.3 for the top. None of this is actually installed just sitting in place while I plan. any thoughts?

krawlmadness1 dude, thanks so much for this finally I can visualize it if I mount the hdds the way you did I can fit a 360 in the front and still have space for 1 optical and a dual bay res and then another 360 up top and maybe 120 on the back (360+120 on one loop for the gpus and the other 360 for a cpu loop

btw where did you get that cover for the psu cables?
post #160 of 1907
Hey, thanks. I got the cover from my Haf X.

I have six 5.25 drive bays remaining with the 120.2 in front. I also thought about a 120.1 in the rear but don't know if i need it.

You can also stack your hdd bays there if needed. I'll submit more pics as I progress. Work keeps me busy.
