Heya, I've got a bit of a favour to ask tongue.gif

Could you stick a ruler in the front and tell me what the dimension from the case flood to the bottom of the drive rack is? Is it like 300mm?

Thanks,

-f.

yeah, it's about 300mm, maybe a little more after taking into account the ends of the ruler, if you cut the bottom of the 5.25" bays you can stick a 360mm rad in there, which I'm considering doing

bought myself a 5870 biggrin.gif but I need some help deciding whether to:

A) use my current ek xt360 rad

or

B) buy a thick 360mm rad, like the phobya g-changer 360 or the ek xtx 360

what do you guys think? I will be selling most of my spare stuff to fund the watercooling etc in this build, and to fit a 360mm rad in the front I'll be cutting the bottom of the 5.25" bays. also thinking of getting an aquaero 5 lt as my fan controller and maybe four scythe gt's

And here is the fitting that will act as my drain port and as an extension to allow me to use a 45 degree fitting (the extension fitting is just there so I don't loose it tongue.gif):
