can you please provide what is the distance between the motherboard mounting plate and the left panel, assuming that I won't be using the side-fan. My motherboard+distances+CPU fan takes 20cm and I can't use my Chieftec Bravo BT anymore, so I need a wider board.
no one can help? it's a matter of 2 minutes for any owner, to open the case and measure the distance manually...rolleyes.gif

How hard would it be to fit a second radiator to my case?


Looking for ideas on how to proceed, the 360 Rad fits on the bottom nicely.
Now then where to put a 240 Rad? Top is pretty much impossible because the PSU cables will block the rad from fitting properly.

How hard is it to fit a 240 Rad in the front panel? Where to put my HDDs then?
Do I need a second pump if I add another radiator and MOSFET blocks from my upcoming motherboard (Z77 OC Formula) to the loop?

Any suggestions/ideas are welcome smile.gif

I just finished my build, need to do some cabe management then I'll upload the build log.

I put a 360mm rad in the top, a 240mm in the bottom next to the PSU but had to bring it forward to allow room for the PSU cables to run behind it.

WIth that in mind, you should be able to fit a 240 up top next to the PSU but you may find you can't use the normal mounting holes.

That's not true...I've managed to fit a 480 on the top and a 360 on the bottom while the PSU is at the bottom. It's tight squeez, but does fit. Have to make some cage ajustments and some minor drill/cut but it's doable thumb.gif

Best cooling is from res>pump>rad>cpu>rad>gpu>res, as mentioned before, it supplies with a little cooler temp, but we are talking baout 3-5C difference here if any. I got a different set up with a dual pump in bay res as well as cooling the mobo, so it was a bit frustrating tubing aroun:pd but got it done.
