~The Switch~ Transition from the Corsair 600T to the NZXT Switch 810 - Page 17

The 2 top fans obviously would go in the upper compartment to save space , 75 mm more or less under the compartment would start getting awfully close to your mobo , I tried to link the updated diagram but dont know if it worked , just writes a url .. and you need the same size fans because otherwise air will be lost going around the rad and there will be less pressure because with the proper sized fans , the air is stuck in the fan shroud before being pushed through the rad and then sucked into the next fan shroud , imagine using water , you lose water over the sides and obviously less pressure going through it !

Well looks like you've done your research and answered your own questions. As far as deciding on whether or not to keep the fans on top of the H100 inside the case or put them in the top compartment, the rad is so thin and there is so much room in the Switch you wont have to worry about it getting close to the motherboard. I'm currently using an XSPC RX360, 60mm, with the Gelid fans pushing on it, 25mm, so that's a total of 85mm and fits no problem.

EDIT: Kinda lost me on the water analogy there, and not sure what you're referring to with all the shroud talk, but good luck!

Mike, Again, What did you do to mount your 240 up front?

The basis for my colors
PSU
Motherboard
RAM
Then maybe going with corsair obsidian series case for the black and red color scheme.
Also, possibly taking my cougars you see in my avatar and modding/painting them red.

Good lord NO please do not get the Fatal1ty crap. PLEASE

This is what I did
The areas circled in red are the default 120mm fan mounting locations, as you can tell, they are not spaced correctly to fit a 240mm radiator.
I used the top four default holes to line up with the top of the rad, then I drilled two holes, the ones circled in yellow, to line up with the bottom mounting holes on the radiator.
The areas circled in green are the very bottom holes of the radiator, and they are not secured in anyway to the case.
But the way it sits, using 6 of the 8 mounts is very solid and works great.
700
Hope that all makes sense wink.gif

EDIT: Oh, and had you asked me this previously and I never answered you? You said "again" like I never got back to you, my apologies if that was the case. thumb.gif

Nice rig! I keep asking questions and people keep telling me to look at your setup, so I did finally. I also am planning on a front vertical mount for the 240 rad, glad to see it's not a major PITA. thumb.gif
I have been considering modding a HDD drive bay and mounting on the floor, (not sure yet how it'll work out) and thinking about putting my D5 up top in the bottom 2 bays. I have lots of HDD storage but fortunately if I have to I can keep most of them in my current build.
A lot is going to depend on if I can get my 250ml cylindrical res mounted horizontally in a way I like.
Anyway, very nice job and I'm happy to see another white Switch looking great.

Thanks for the compliment thumb.gif Good luck on your build.

Mike when are we going to see updated pic's for the 670's?

Well the 670 that was bad was sent back, and I'm receiving the replacement tomorrow. So I'll have them both in tomorrow up and running. But the system as a whole went through some major changes, nothing special any more (to me at least) since it's not under water now Snorkle.gif Guess I could still throw up some photos just to give an end result to how it's finally turned out.
