this i would do but i also run a h70 for my cpu so its a problem because thats where i have the h70 mounted

I know that this is for when the H70 was on my cpu but the mount idea is the same. Im not sure how rage kept them in place but for me the rad pressure fit into the drivebay and needed no addional help to hold it there. May be slightly different for you.

as an update, i tried doing this and it worked alright the h70 wont move unless im doing something in the case, i installed the 620 on the gpu although i did mess up on the knots to hold it down it doesnt look nearly as good as other people but it still holds the cooler in place, i also kept the stock tim.

as for performance on first run im getting 30-33 Celsius while not doing any gaming or doing anything that requires more power from the gpu, overall im very satisfied with the results im getting, although i could have done a better job on it but its too much of a hassle right now to redo it.

Well I had to remove the drove cages altogether and place the drives on a custom base (stacked vertically) in space below the GPU and in front of the PSU. I had tried mounting up top but one RAD was too close to the H50 for the CPU and created a deadzone where the temps on that card was +10c over the other. So they are back in the front intakes.
In order for the rads to reach I had to stack at three fans in front. I eventually got 2 more and paired them to four different channels on my Fan Controller. Most of the time they are just running one pair @ 40%. when I need more for benching then I engage the others and or up the RPM's. Ive noticed lately in BF3 they stay at around 47-50c with OC settings at 850/1700/2100. And thats just with a single pair of fans running at 40%.
Best part is this rig is now whisper quiet. This is still very much a work in progress. Im toying with the idea of getting the base plate back on as well the stock shroud. Fans are also a work in progress.

Could you provide pics it sounds confusing.

Here are all the pictures I taken. http://imageshack.us/g/337/dsc05565v.jpg/

Which part is confusing? Fan placement? Cooler Mounting?

Let us know so we can help shed more light on it for you. Its definitely something you need to understand completely before attempting. wink.gif

The thing i am not sure about is how to secure the rads in the hard drive bays. I know i need to take the racks out but how do you secure both the rads?
