I wanna get a 360 monster rad which will be mounted on the top outside so about 60 mm will be sticking out the case on top. Would that be too crazy or should I just stick with a 30mm 360 rad, and have just the fans sticking out the top.
Here is how much it might stick out with the monster rad and 38mm fans, My foam dummy rad and fan are a total of 120mm.

Go big or go home... this is ocn biggrin.gif I would go with what you want and then build an enclosure around it to smooth out the top a little. Similar to IT Diva's build. Only yours will be taller! You could mount the 38mm fans to the underside, use a spacer, then rad and then the top 38mm fans. That would cut down on the amount sticking up and would push the cold air right onto the mobo and GPU

Well cold air technically doesn't matter as everything except for the Ram is going to be under water. I guess you are right stick with what I want, and a rad sticking out will be in line with my build theme of a ducati monster.

Well time to order parts.

Hmmmm... have you considered doing an exterior-mounted radiator? I think you could attach it to the blank side panel, get some of those pass-through fittings, and mount it that way.... I think that would be really sick..... Put it on hinges so it could fold in an out....

Hmmmm, I like that, kinda make it the exhaust (given the motorcycle theme)

I think if you could do one or two rads on the sides like this epic paint drawing used your case Mupp1t as it was the first i found with that angle, so obviously no window on that side. You could get a real neat look. It would just be tricky to get a decent mounting system.

I was looking at some passive radiators and thinking they might be great for the bling factor. I already have a 420 in the bottom and the way my PC is going to end up once its all done is not gonna have any room on the side where the window normally is. hence the big reason for the reverse ATX.

and was looking at PPCS and looks like the rad that I wanted from day 1, the aquacomputer airplex revo 360/420 (120 mount on 1 side and 140 on the other) is back in stock, Might just install that on the top...

Yea, it might give you a little bit of the exhaust feel.


My wife would never let me...

Even angle-ing (hahaha spelling) them up would be pretty neat

Or even some extrenal tube resevoirs... you wouldn't even need to hook them up to your loop, just mount em on the sides

or mount some tube resevoirs on the radiators mounted on the sides.

Lets not forget that this is the first time I'm modding a case period (or in a way that involves power tools). One I get home gonna take some measurements and see what I can do with that rad. It would cool to have switch with dual internal 420s.. and have all the HDD mounting space
