CM should have smartened up and made a stryer series that would feature an all white look with white and black cables that are designed to reach in here. I would have bought one smile.gif

Plus it needs to be 100% modular.

i depends on your board, and how much modding you are willing to do before you have to cut up the top panel my 8 pin CPU power cable is the highest thing on my mobo. i probably have about 13mm clearance before i hit my fans. i have a 60mm rad and 25mm fans in push only config. i highly doubt you could fit a monsta up there with fans.

this is how much clearance i was able to get


i had to cut the top panel a bit




and the yellow tape is protecting my rad when i was doing the mod

so unless you want to start cutting up the top panel some more the thickest combo you could get is 90mm, a 40mm rad and some 25mm fans for push/pull, or like i did 60mm rad with 25mm fans push. to do this you need to do a mod like mine.

you will also need to completely cut out the existing mounting system and do a custom mounting system. you will also lose the handle functionality. and depending on which rad you will also have to remove the rear handle so you can push the rad towards the back so you can clear the control panel.

i am going to attempt to make a "duct" that will offset the rad to bring it more away from the mobo try and to the front of the case..... lets see how it turns out lol.

I really don't want to do any modding. My plan was to put a 45MM rad up top with 25MM fans in push, all inside the case. As long as there is 70MM space, I should be good.

45mm inside the case with the fans outside definitely possible for a 240 with just doing the handle mod, if you want a 360 you have to mod. you have about 53mm of space between the the top of the case and the top of any board before you start interfering with anything, and depending on your board you could maybe get another 5 mm

I gave up and bought a cheap esata drive slot. Now I only have 2 standard hdd's in my machine, and 10 sitting next to it that i pop in as needed, just like the good ole' Nintendo Enterainment Center days...


With windows 8 and an ssd, my rig boots up in (gulp) 2-3 seconds. It is absurd. Every excuse I used to have for leaving it on 24/7 is gone. I made sure the last router I bought (ASUS black 6000 something) had 2 usb ports. One for the printer, ond one for an external hd that stays on 24/7 so I have access to family pictures/ movies/and whatever other goodies I need without having my computer on all of the time. The router even has its own bitorrent software built right in, but what would I use that for rolleyes.gif

I just spliced the wires, you don't really need the adapter.

You can remove the hard drive cages and the walls holding them in, but you are not able to remove the top part above the fans (at least without drilling out rivets). You can also turn the hard drive cages so they face front to back or side to side.
