Where shall I locate my RX480?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have an FT02, and I will not be pulling fans and the HD cage and putting the rad in the bottom of the case. I plan to mount the rad on the back or side or top, but would love some advice. (This is my first wc venture, btw)

Just to give you and idea, I've got blocks for my cpu and gpu, an mcp655, an EK dual bay res, (4) AP-15s, tubing, fittings, screws, grommets, etc. en route.

Thanks!

Edit: Because pictures draw interest...

Bye-Bye big air coolers.

IMO mount it with some standoffs on the top. Some longer screws with nylon spacers looks tidy and rock solid.
It looks tricky to mount it on the rear or side, although that could be part of the fun.
With the side chances are you'll want quick disconnects to be able be able to take the side panel off and you'll be modding the panel to accommodate the airflow.
With the rear I'm struggling to find any mounting points and you'll either have overhang on the card slots or a protruding radiator.

Might be fun to mount it below the case itself in a pedestal the case can sit on. A quick google didn't find anything though.
