Antec Kuhler H20 920 on Silverstone FT02

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Can the radiator on the Antec cooler fit on my FT02? I have a gigabyte x58a-oc board which has a fairly large vrm heatsink as well. And from the look of the radiator its quite thicker than the h80. Can anyone give me an idea if this will fit?

The Antec Kuhler 920 will fit at top of the FT02 with no problem.

(The motherboard is an EVGA P67 FTW)

Regarding whether the Kuhler 920 will have physical conflict with the VRM heatsink of your Gigabyte X58A-OC, there should not be.
The Kuhler 920 fits well with the X58A-OC (inside a CM Storm Enforcer). And, this indicates well there should not be a problem.
Take a look at the pics here:- http://www.ocqq.com/?view-40767/

To best the 920 or H80, one needs perhaps top air coolers like Silver Arrow or NH-D14 or watercooling kit like RASA 240.

I hope these help.

Yes it can....The 920 is nice because it has the Chillcontrol software but the fans are a bit noisy. Below are some pics of my setup with the 920:
