Thermaltake Element T - will these fans fit?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm currently using the Thermaltake Element T ATX case and I have a question regarding the fans and sizing.

I'm just wondering if these fans will fit the case properly:

The following fan would be mounted at the top and at the front of the case:
Cooler Master MegaFlow 200 (200 x 200 x 30) - http://www.ebuyer.com/205467-coolermaster-megaflow-200mm-transprent-red-led-silent-fan-r4-lus-07ar-gp

The next fan would be mounted on the side of the case, serving as an intake fan:
Bitfenix Spectre Black (230 x 230 x 30mm) - http://www.ebuyer.com/337536-bitfenix-spectre-pro-230mm-all-black-case-fan-lubf-045

I'd also like to point out that I currently have all of the proper Thermaltake fans installed on the case, I do however feel they do an inadequate job of cooling my system.

According to the official specifications for the case, the fans I'm looking at have the correct height and width but their depth is too thick.

Would the extra depth cause a problem?

Thanks for your help and advice!

Width should not be a problem for the top 200mm fan, but the 230mm on the side panel may be a problem if you have a very tall heatsink. The height of the heatsink may interfere with the fan on the side panel. Its a common occurrence with many cases available If you have the stock heatsink, then you will be perfectly fine.

Hi there, thanks for the response.

I'm currently using the stock cooler on the 2500K but I'm planning to buy either the Corsair H60 or the H70.

Would the Corsair H60 or H70 fit in the Thermaltake Element T?

And also, would the fans be okay with the H60 or the H70 installed?

Thanks for your help! smile.gif
