I haven't decided yet if I'll be doing a skinny rad with p/p or a thicker with just p.
I plan on building with an i5 3570k, and either 1 7870 to start(eventually adding an additional for xfire) or a 7950 if I can justify the cost. May even wait out Kepler to see what the other team tosses out.
Curious if I may be able to get away with just a top 420 rad cooling the two of those, I know when I eventually add an additional card I'll be needing to place a 280/240 rad in the bot - or if I'm better off just doing both rads at the start.
Thanks for the help~!!

I use the XSPC RX360 radiator at the top of mine in push/pull without any spacing issues or lining up with the pre-drilled holes. This rad in push/pull, probably even push, would be able to cool that cpu and one gpu. If you were to add another gpu, however, you would want some more radiator. There's space at the bottom of the case to do so without modification. You would only have to remove the bottom hard drive cage.

I am running the XSPC ex360 and it also has no issues. I think most of the issues come from the 420 rads.

Does your RX360 block the motherboard molex connector from reaching it? think i saw a review somewhere where the guy couldnt reach it and had to leave out a fan. Might have been the 420 though.

hey guys, what screws do you guys use to mount the rad to the top on a push/pull config?


I just tried to fit the SR-1 (57mm) with the included screws and looks like I can't mount it with them.

450450

when I try to mount the AP-15 to the rad there is only about a mm or two of extra treads so I doubt I can just use these long, black screws and attach the fans to the rad and to the case.

I think I might have to go to Menard's tomorrow to get longer screws? frown.gif

Wow, I'm impressed! Two quick responses!

Does anyone know of any 420 rads that fit into the screw holes w/o having to drill?

Get 6/32 1.5inch screws. Should do it.

That was a probably a 420. I hadn't heard of anyone having that issue with a RX360.

Don't use 1.5" screws I think they are too long, you might puncture your rad. I'm using 1 1/4" and I think those are JUST enough. The original screws are just 30mm (1 1/4" is 31.75mm).

I believe that they typically use 1 1/8" long screws. I've used 1" screws with success though - they're JUST long enough.
