screwing 240 rad in Fractal R2

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I currently using a Haf 932 for watercooling but I want to use my Fractal R2 as it has noise isolatio, so I want a low noise gaming pc if that makes sense.

Now Ive seen couplle of guys installing 240 radiator in front but my concern is how to exactly mount it, pictures that I have seen it looks like the radiator is connected to 2 120 fans and also hold by fanclips but I'm unsure if my radiator fan holes align with the R2 and also it might be too wide to fit on to the fan holders

my radiator is the EK Water Blocks EK-CoolStream RAD XT 240 it is 276 x 123 x 47mm

One guys computer that I saw is this:

I cant tell from pics on the net but it should fit no problem its just how do you mount it, I guess you should be able to screw into the stock mountings somehow, maybe ask the guy that you got the picture from?
