Is there a 240mm rad short enough to fit this?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I need help guys. Do you know any Rads that can fit in this space I have right here?



That's about 10.0 - 10.5 Inches of empty space between my PSU and the back of the case. If someone can confirm a way for me to keep my PSU then I'll go ahead and start sleeving. If not then I guess I'll hold off for when I upgrade my whole rig and get a shorter PSU along with a WC loop.

Also I dont know if sleeving my cables will add some more space in there or not.

The shortest I could find in a two week search for my build was the Black Ice Pro II, it is 277mm long. It fits with 1mm to spare on each side in my case that is almost exactly 11 inches wide.

There are several in the 280-290mm range, but they are all thicker (35+mm). The BIP II is only 28mm thick so barely more than a fan, if thats important.

Thickness isn't an issue, I plan on push/pulling ap-15s. Unless somehow the rad bumps up against my modular connectors and then loses space for me to work with.

Most of the shorter ones I find sit around 277-278. So I don't know what's the best possible route right now.

Seems like theBlack Ice GT Stealth is also another option.

Sigh such a difficult situation I'm in.

Yeah the stealth is small but the high fpi meant noisy fans to me so I avoided it. Maybe a single 140? It would be more square so taller but not as long.

that SS 1200 is killing you....why such an overkill PSU anyway?

you have all the options in the world with a good 650-850w psu...but you probably already know that.

problem is, 9.5" is already taken by the absolute minimum size of 2x120 fans (did you also account for the power plug?)...such a low-mass rad will barely hold any water and won't help out your cooling any.

I built my current rig back when 920s first launched. I bought this PSU for plans on SLI my gtx285s. Now my decisions are coming to bite me in the arse.

so I guess this means I hold off till I do my next major upgrade and buy a shorter psu while im at it?
