Xigmatek Elysium Front Rad?

I honestly think this case is a steal. But what are the chances of being able to mount a 360 or 480 rad in the front?

If I could do it with little modding. I would most defiantly get one.

i have the case and its massive you could put a 360 up front(would have to do something else with hd bays) but there is plenty of room up top. im installing a 360 up top and a 240 in the front.

installing a 420 and a 240 would also work
if you don't mind doing a bit of modding you could mount the hdds in front of the psu turned 90 degrees and mount a 360 in the front, maybe a 480 but you will have to take measurements to make sure it could fit all of the ones i see are over 500mm long and 12x41.3mm is 495.6mm so it might be a tight squeeze to get one in the front

Doing the same. Though I don't have a motherboard/cpu , power supply or video card yet. lol

I am using this case as well,

You can fit a 360mm rad internally at the front with a little modding, Or you can fit a Thick 360mm rad up top and a Thick 240mm rad next to the power supply with no modding.

No you can't really

The power supply is probably going to cover some of the holes required for the rad on the bottom. Really only a 120 will work properly without some minor modding on the bottom.

So your telling me it can't be done.. When I've already done it? doh.gif

Edit: Mind you there was no modding required to fit the RX240 with P/P on the bottom smile.gif

Ahh I was thinking more a 1000w type power supply my bad. As they are longer and would overhang.

Here's some of the stuff I'm sticking in mine:

Nice res!

Do note though, even with a longer PSU it is still possible to fit a 240 Rad into the bottom without modding, you just can't use the already existing holes, You can always offset the rad a bit and use the honeycomb holes with zip ties and still get the same effect smile.gif

This is my first try at watercooling. I decided I might as well not do it in half measures lol.
