URGENT! ANTEC 1200 240mm

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I have finished building my Antec 1200 rig and wanted to finally jump into the water-cooling side of things.

I have only come across one picture on the internet That shows the 240mm rad in the system, upon showing this many people have said that the corsair doesn't fit in the case (premixed 240mm) but then seeing the image the person looks fairly confident it fits.

The two routes to take would be top mounting it, below the 200mm "big boy" and create a "push-pull" config. But would like to know if there was any required modding in doing this process?

The second was to mount it at the back of the case (internally) and have a push or pull config. Just would like to know if it would fit.



Thanks so much.

Yes, there are those two options.

For the top mount idea, a little modding is required. Either positioning the 240mm radiator and then using screws to secure it down. Or you could install metal supports and then use those to assist mounting the radiator.

The second option of mounting in the back also requires a bit of handy work. As the two fans are not exactly the same mounting holes as the radiator. So you could secure one of the fans correctly onto the radiator and use zip ties to secure the second fan.

I would mount my rad in the front if i was using a 1200.it requires a little modding of course, and i dont know whether corsair makes their hoses long enough.

I'm pretty sure the tubing isn't long enough. Especially for the Corsair H series.
But having a custom setup would allow you to mount in the front. tongue.gif
