Let not blame ourselves now tongue.gif, it's actually NZXT's fault for false advertising for the installing of any kind of 420 rad at the top.

How is there false advertising!? You can fit a 420 with certain motherboards, but you can't fit it with others (just not the combo you want). Are you expecting them to go through with every motherboard and radiator combo and list it out for you!?

I will agree with you. Also I don't think there is any other case in the market for this price range (i got mine for $119 @ micro center) that can fit all the stuff that this case can, and Xnine and other reps make owning an NZXT a total pleasure.

I second how great this case is.. I honestly looked into every case I could find on the market at this size. After looking into spending a butt ton of money on CL or one of the higher end cases I found this has everything I could ever want for a fraction of the price!

$150 at MC and a $30 MIR... I mean wow man you cant go wrong.. You barely even need to mod the case..

There's no false advertising anywhere. You CAN fit a 420 rad in the top, with modification. Never has there been a claim or ad stating "native 420 support."

Edit: Oh look, Page 820..... That's kind of funny.

ah... well, 360 it is. since this is my first build, idk anything about what sort of splitters and cables i need to get to run 14 fans (10 for push/pull and 4 for airflow). i already bought a fan controller, is there any way you could help a newb out? and what do you suggests for fans for push/pull. i see some fans costing $20 a pop - i can't justify spending that much on a fan, sorry. i guess u can say i want the best bang for buck option.

I have pretty much the same set up that you are looking at. 420 will definitely not work with the sabertooth, I have an RX 360 up top and it was difficult just getting that to work, but with a 45 or 90 in the corner and a little positioning it turns out fine. About the bottom rad, I would just go with a 240. To be completely honest, you don't even need it. I have a 3770k and a 670 on just the 360 with only pull fans. The 670 never hits 40 C. The 3770k hits around 75 on load, but my chip just gets ridiculously hot when I overclock it, no matter what cooling.
Here's a pick of the corner clearance.

I'm new to water cooling but after reading ~300 pages asking people and posts like this
http://www.overclock.net/t/1223353/switch-810-wc-questions/50#post_16721584
I will stay away from 420 rads - lack of time to mod the case that much

One more question though
Do spacing problems apply to companies other then hw labs as well(speaking of 120x rads - 240/360)?

I had no problem with my Swiftech rad, and I don't think most rads out there have an issue.

i'm new too but I decided to go with the 420, I'm willing to take that chance, drilling a few holes should not be an issue, and if I mess up, I guess I will find a way to fix it then.

The Fans mount to the top of case and the Radiator to the underside of case so you can make a big hole or a slot if you need to and it will not affect mounting and no one will see it with a fan mounted.

Cutting drive cage with out taking in out was more of a problem. I just drilled rivets and used 3mm screws with very little washers. The bolts used to mount hardrives will fit to remount drive cage you just need the nuts and washers if you want. I cut it leaving only one inch in the front of drive cage for full clearance with 420 for good airflow and possible push fans if needed.
