No. The RS240 is too thick. So far the only radiators that fit are the H100 and black ice Pro II and GT Stealth radiators and even then you still need to cut out a piece to get them to fit.

Hey guys, i have my 500R and week ago started a annoying problem. From nowhere starts annoying little rattling sound. When i move the case a little it stops, and after few minutes starts again. I opened the case and everything is fine, no cables in fans or something like that.

Also my backside is hardly pressed with cables, so dunno maybe there something? Any ideas? ^^

could be a fan my antec 900 rear exhaust fan started making a rattle noise after 4.5 to 5 years of good use lol i always keep my case fans on high though redface.gif gently push your finger against each fan when the noise occurs to eliminate the fans
