Hello I have a 500r and was asking if an EK 240rad can fit to the top (outside or inside) without any modding?

Thank you

definitely not outside if you plan to use the grill.



problems fitting inside:
1) you would definitely need low-low profile ram. samsung green is the only low-low profile ram i know of. all other ram limits you to less than 45mm depth. (probably 40mm)
2) may not clear waterblock even if you use 90* fittings.
3) may not clear cpu 8-pin
4) may not clear uppermost vrm(?) heatsink.

the 500r wasnt made for serious water cooling. it was made for the all-in-one, closed loop kits. basically only the slim 240 and 280 radiators fit. the best of those as of right now is the ex280.

Thanks for the reply. So I guess top side is out of the question. How about in front?

Is this what you're referring to?

exactly that. the best ex280 kit you can get unless you want the pwm controlled pump.
you will of course have to decide if you want your fans pushing into the case or pulling it out. i dont know which would work best.

I think i have changed my mind on a H80i. I plan on getting a noctua d14 instead for less.

Anyone using a D14 in their 300R?

I do know that it will take a 240 rad in the roof but as the h100 is 27mm thick and my rad is 35mm thick i have concerns that i buy the case only to find that once i have put my board in i cant install the rad with fans attached

I also know that not all boards will have these issues just affraid to fork out £80

has anyone used an rs240 with the 400R

ok, the rs is 35 thick plus a 25mm thick fan is 60mm. any ram that is not as low profile as the samsung green is stop you at about 40mm. i have a few mm more than you judging by the pictures on newegg.

do you see how your ram hold down tabs are in the middle of the mobo hold down screw holes and my tabs are at the bottom of those holes ?
i had to zip tie my front fan to my h100 because the ram wouldnt let it clear so i could screw it on. i dont see it fitting at all with the fans inside.

excuse my earlier rude post. i got irritated with your question when i answered almost the same question 4 posts earlier. the carbide cases werent meant for true water cooling.
