Mainly the hot swap and the usb cables, i'd like use of these if i can really, saves me having to buy another front expansion for the ports i use on a daily basis.

So I've had an elysium taking up space in my apartment, empty, for months. So last month I read up on watercooling with the elysium and somehow became convinced that the 2x200MM radiator from Phobya was the way to go. . . I am now past the return date from frozencpu and I still can seem to find a way to mount it that doesn't require me drilling the case, and even then I am not sure it would fit properly once the fans were mounted. I also have a 3770k, maximus V extreme, and 2 7970s sitting in limbo.

Anyone use one of these in the elysium? http://www.frozencpu.com/products/14803/ex-rad-329/Phobya_Xtreme_400mm_Radiator_Silverstone_Cooler_Master_Yate_Loon_Bitfenix.html?tl=g30c95s1586

Did I screw myself over on this purchase, or is there a way to make it fit? I am fine drilling new holes on the bottom of the case to mount it, I just dont wanna go do it only to be banging my head against the wall again. My other thought. . . but its risky to say the least is to mount the fans on the inside and cut a hole to let the fittings enter the case and mount the radiator on the outside bottom.

I have some 2x120MM and 3x120MM radiators I can use instead, but the 200 would be ideal if it can be made to work.

EDIT: realize it will fit just fine with 180 MM fans, there are already two fan holes that line so I just need to drill 2-4 more holes. (4 if I want to have more in the middle)

How many fans can i fit in the front? I heard it can take 480 rad, but it needs an adapter, are there fan mounts by default?
I need to get positive pressure inside the case with 4 exhaust fans trough rads. 420 in roof and 120 in the back.
All low rpm fans ofc wink.gif

So, amigos,
little debate I have with myself:
I'm finally changing my loop ( had plasteriser in the primochill tubing, so there was incentive to change that as well).
And I'm wondering: will 2x360 + 1x140 slim + 1x120 rads will be enought to adequatly cool my 4x7970s ( prly OC to around 1150/1600) and 3930k at 4.5ghz ? OR should I drop 140, drop 120 and go, kill my wallet and grab a phobya nova 1080, a stand for it and a braket for 4x180 fans, and have two MCP655 pushing : res->pump->cpu->360->nova->4x7970->360->res? or that is some fetishistic overkill? P.S. and not, I'm not all too fond of spending extra money atm, thus I'm debating.

I bought Coolgate CG420. This lock prevents the alignment holes of the top of computer case with radiator holes.
