If you go back a bit or look through my pictures you will see how the top bay is blocked by a fan. My main point was that you do not need to modify or disassemble the case to get a 3x140mm rad in the top with push/pull fans.

What threw a big monkey wrench in the 420 installs in the switch 810, was if it was a regular thickness hardware labs rad.

If you recall, until the most recent HWL rad models, they spaced the fans on the 140 fan sized rads at 20mm between adjacent screws, where everyone else used the same 15mm spacing as was the default standard for 120 sized rads.

If you go back in this thread, you'll see where NZXT eventually made a top panel with slots, so you didn't have to drill new holes if you opted for a HWL rad.

The big downside to the 20mm spacing, is that it makes a 420 rad with 20mm spacing, 10mm longer than it would be if it had 15mm spacings.

Add to that, that the frontmost top fan can not be shifted any farther forward or the top plastic panel won't install . . . .

So then if you installed a HWL rad with the fittings at the rear, the usual way to install the top rad, . . .

It wouldn't fit, because the fittings wouldn't clear the case I/O area . . .

So you had to install the normal thickness HWL rads with the fittings to the front which then encroached on the bay space.


Depending on how you managed the fittings at the front, pretty much dictated how much you had to mod the little side pieces at the top, and the top of the optical drives cage.


If you didn't have a HWL rad, you could have the fittings at the rear, and life was a lot easier.


Darlene


If you shifted the rad forward enough for rear fittings to clear the I/O, then the top front fan blocks the top plastic from fitting in like it should.




With the fittings at the front, you had to get rather creative to make things fit.

I had a fan controller in the top in front of the rad, and a dual bay/dual D5 res in the next bays down . . You can see I had to cut away a fair amount of the top of the drives cage, and mod the side panels considerably, but it all worked well and didn't block off airflow for the front fan.




With the acrylic trim panel in place, it looked a lot more planned, and a lot less hacked:

That looks very cool. Can you tell me/us more about what you did on the top? It looks like you have a 3rd row of fans on top of the case?

What I actually had done was to create a dual fan setup where I could do a quick change between the 2 sets.

The normal top set was 3 of the Prolimatech aluminum vortex 140's, which matched up with the same on the lower, (pull) side of the rad.

The hi-performance set was 3 of the Koolance 4000 rpm monsters . . . . noisy as hell, but moved a crap ton of air thru the 420 GTX.

Since the Koolance fans are 120 size, I set it up with a 20mm thick 140 mm shroud right above the rad, with a 140 to 120 adapter on that, and finally the big Koolance fans on the adapters.


With the normal fans, the top panel fit on as you'd expect for the 810.

For the Koolance fans, that stuck up an extra couple inches plus, I had a second top panel with some extension and nice trim so it looked nice and professionally done.


Here's a pic of the Koolance fan setup in the front position, and a regular fan in the rear position:

You can see that by using 20mm tall M4 standoffs, counter boring the shrouds and bottom side of the fan frames, that everything could slip on and off without the rad coming loose, even with everything disassembled . . .





Here it is with the top trim with the big fans in place:

Nice. Did the 4000rpm fans make a big difference in temperature?

No, not a bit . . . . .

But since I had ended up building the external cooling module for the trifire Matrix 7970's,

The onboard system, (GTX 420 & GTX 240) never really had much of a load on it, so I never got to really see if it would have helped or not.


The hardware from that build is what I used in my Thermaltake Core X9 build:











The Switch 810 was rather awesome for its time, a damn lot of bang for the buck . . . .

But I think most builders who could afford the higher end components, wanted more from their cases, which is why the Enthoo Primo became the new 810 when it came out.

I dont really care about the top bay at all since i never use it.
I care more about the space between the fittings and the IO shield. I don't know if I should go with a 30 or 45mm thickness rad on top. Im only using push vents

I hear you. When I was running this case I took out the HDD cages because of how bad the vibration is and alas, airflow lol.

Used the hot swap dock but even that made me deaf.

THE 2 fans mounted in the front of the case the bottom one mounting hole/screw hits the first fan....
can only fit a 120mm (close to front fans) and a 140mm (close to psu) on the bottom

and on the top i have a swiftech H240-X liquid cooler but I can only use the four holes on the first fan closest to the front of the case the other holes for the fan closest to the back of the case DOES NOT LINE UP EITHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
How long is your power supply? The 140mm on the top is a known problem for the first revision. The second revision on the other hand is like near vapor.

I did it recently. Lots of time, a wire wool and alcohol. end result? Pure white plastic behind the rubber coating. For the rubber coating it will also require sandpaper. Lots of it

Then painted it black. The end result is stunning.



That said I really want to use a 140mm rad on it but given my expectations over what unfolded last year that led me to being bestowed with a enthoo pro, I'll say NZXT probably ain't giving out spare parts anymore.

Thanks

Done it on the fan cover then I took it off because it wasn't going to match my rig. Looks quite good though.

You will have space with a 45. As for single fan configuration apparently push is better but due to lack of space for a 420mm rad or so use pull.
140mm fans are usually weak anyway.
