140mm Rad in Antec 300?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Does anybody know if a 140mm rad will fit on the top of an antec 300? it seems like it might but it would have to be a really thin one. Not sure... I can't find anything on it either. So, any ideas?

If I remember correctly, you will run into clearance issues with the motherboard if you plan on using a 140. It will be a tight fit if using a thin rad with a 25mm fan. Take the side panel off and add the total thickness from the rad and a 25mm fan and measure it. Also, it helped me to actually make a rad out of cardboard. I had to use a Koolance shroud and some screws to elevate it for my radiator on top of my 300, but I also have a thick rad with 38mm thick fans.

Get the dimensions of the radiator and measure your case clearances. I put a 240 rad into my Antec 300, it was not easy at all.
