This is good. Been sampling the NZXT rma process recently which as u say is frustrating. But as long as things get sorted out I'll be a happy bunny. Once i sort out my PSU issue I can get on with my switch 810 w/c upgrades smile.gif

And the nice thing about the Switch 810 case ... all you have to do is pull that lower drive cage out, and in goes a 240 radiator without any modifications at all.

If you got an Alphacool UT60 240 radiator, then you wouldn't need any 3-way connector. That radiator has 6 ports on it. You could use 2 of them for your in and out for the loop, and use a 3rd port for a drain. Just come out of that 3rd port to a 90 degree single rotary connector, then into a male-to-male connector, then into a 'T' valve, and you are done.

Alphacool NexXxoS UT60 Full Copper 240mm


You don't even have to lose the drive cage if you don't want to. I just installed it on the built-in fan mounts attached to the drive bay. I might not have gotten unrestricted airflow, but with a mcr-320 qp up top and a black ice gtx 240 it cooled a 4.8ghz 3570k and 2 oc'd 7970s just fine. Low 70's for cpu and 55 max gpu's when running prime95 and bitcoin mining (100% gpu usage)

Good to know. I haven't tried putting a 240 down there.

Hi,
i'm new in this forum. ^^ And sorry for my bad english. I'm german. ( and no nazi biggrin.gif )
I've one question, is it possible to mount a "Alphacool NexXxoS UT60 420mm" in the top without drilling or cutting?
And if i have to drill or cut, is it much?
Or should I go with a UT60 360mm or with a Watercool HTF4 420mm?

Please reply ^^

Yes, you can mount the Alphacool UT60 420 up top without any modification (drilling or cutting). You would most likely want to then put 3 fans on the the very top part of the case, under the louvers to draw air through the radiator. These three also can go on without any modification. IF you have to do any modification at all, it will be very minimal (ie drilling a couple holes). In the beginning, some of the Switch 810 cases had one set of radiator spacing, but now I am told they now have both.

Since the UT60 is 2mm thinner than the XSPC RX360 radiator, you can most likely also mount 3 more fans (if you want) to the UT60 also so you can drive lots of air through it. This is called "push/pull".

When I did this to my Switch 810 using an XSPC RX360 radiator, I had to modify my case, but with the UT60 you should not have to.


Here is a build log where someone mounted the Alphacool XT45 420 up top:

[Build Log] NZXT Switch 810 420

And another build log with a slightly different 420 radiator:

Thanks for your reply Knucklehead, thumb.gif
so is it possible to go with push with this fans?
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835214036&Tpk=Enermax%20T.B.%20Silence%20140mm
And are those fans good for water cooling?

One more question, is there a big performance-difference between push/pull and only push?

The Alphacool UT60 420 can be run in push/ pull, you just might have to shave the lip at the top of the case and/or part of one of the fans. If your not scared of modifying a little bit then the 420 wont be hard to do. I just ordered mine UT60 420's, should arrive monday. If I can find the link to the test of push/pull I'll post it.

Those fans would not be my reccommendation.

You'll be better served by fans in the 1200 rpm range with better static pressure and cfm, run from a controller.

You'll likely have to do a little drilling, 8 new fan mount holes for the center and rear fans, and definately a little cutting (dremel) to relieve the top panel for the plugs in the top ports.

The UT 60 has six G1/4 ports at the one end, . . . two up, two to the rear, and two down.

The top ones prevent the rad from sitting flush up against the top panel, untill you notch out for them, which isn't a big deal.

NZXT talked about, and showed pics of a new top panel with slots instead of holes, to accomodate 140mm fan sized rads with both 20mm and the more common, 15mm fan to fan spacings.

I don't see it on the Armory store, and have not seen anyone post a pic of their new Switch 810 that came with one.

I have to assume that it's still vaporware at this point, so be prepared to drill the 8 new holes mentioned, which isn't a big deal either.


Darlene

If your new 810 does have the top panel with slots for the 140 sized rad's fans, please post some pics, so that those of us who follow the thread can update out personal knowledge base.
