post #3621 of 6035
Hey guys, does anyone know what size rad can fit in the bottom of this case. I really want to use the top fan slots for intake to cool the mobo vrm's and ram and since I am doing a cpu only loop I figure i should just put the rad in the bottom to free up the top fan slots. I am only doing the cpu because they don't make full blocks for my cards. Does anyone think it's a bad idea to put the rad in the bottom.

360 will fit as fat as you like it..

If you have a long Psu you may hve to pull it out just a tad .

Also a 360 will fit on the 5.25/Hdd bay area as well.

you can dual 240's in the bottom for even more surface area and then do a thick 120 on the hdd slots as well.

I just found out EK is making full cover blocks for my FTW 4gb 680's so now I am going to do a loop for the cpu and the 2 680's.

Do you guys think it's important to cool the mobo vrm's or should i just put a rad in the top of the case. i would love to leave the top open for intake which would cool the mobo really nicely. I hope I can fit everything without having to use the top fan slots.

I'm trying to figure out a plan for the best place to put the rads.

Maybe I should put as much rad as will fit in the bottom and I can use the 5.25" bays for the pump. I guess i could also put a 120 on the back exhaust.

I have to find out how much rad I need for 2 680's and a 3930k.

Never really heard much issues of MB Vrams over heating unless your doing something extreme with Ln2... And have nothing cooling them.

I just did a build using two of the SP120 quiet edition fans on the H100. Performance wise they are very close to the stock fans that come w/ the h100 (which are pretty good fans in and of themselves) but MUCH quieter. I believe that the High Performance version of the SP120's are also very good to use on that rad.

Here is a link to a good review of fans, they are using an h80, but the same principles would still apply.

Im about to order cooler master cosmos II (its expensive but its great) I also like the cooler master HAF X

is there any reason to change the cosmos II instead of COOLER MASTER CM Storm Series Trooper / NZXT SWITCH 810 Black CA-SW810-B1 Steel / Plastic ATX HYBRID Full Tower Gaming ?



motherboard: maximus V formula
cooling: H100
gpu: gtx 690 (im not planning to sli)

the thing is that if i get the trooper or switch, i can affort the keyboard Ducky DK9008 Shine II Blue LED Backlit Mechanical Keyboard (Red Cherry MX)

if not i can wait to december when my sister goes to NY again and buy the keyboard

Im looking for full cases with good look

you guys have the exp, if u were me wichone you choose?
post #3629 of 6035
What are you using the case for?

The Cosmos 2 is going to be the best built and have the most options of the bunch and the most space.

To get something better you would have to buy a Mountain Mods case.

Wow thanks! that was really helpful, im not usually concerned with noise (my build right now is really loud so im used to it..) so ill most likely go with the preformace editions of the AF120's both the static pressure and the cooling fans
