Thanks guys for the referrals!

Yeah you should have room, I have heatsinks on mine and they are probably that tall and there is still a gap.

Go with the 620 as an intake, will experience cooler temps since you won't be pulling air away from the H50 rad fans.

hmmmmm I guess i could mount the radiator on the top of my case and thewn have a 120mm fan next to it as an exhaust but i will have water hoses crossing over each other vertically and horizontally.

I have ordered a bracket from DWood by the way so that when i decide what to do i can just go ahead thumb.gif

Another thing that worries me is there is a row of capacitors on my GTX580 which stick up quite a bit from the card, will the bracket definatly clear these for the fan mounting?

Any ideas where to mount the radiator? Here it is at the moment:
640

We actually have the exact same case... here is my pic, but I changed it since.

338

Here is one change I have made since I took this picture... You know how you can click the top vent off, I put two 120mm fans there, and was still able to put the grill back on. One is connected to the radiator, and another just to pull air out from the case. I did this because with the radiator and fan on the inside, I was hitting the memory since I have corsair veng memory ,and with the heat sinks on them, it was touching, which I didnt like. I also just ordered a 12mm fan that I will be putting on the inside connected to the radiator so it will be a push/pull system, and not touch the memory.

cool thats one way of doing it i guess. So your going to have the radiator flat to the top of the case and put a fan each side of it?

It will work i just think it looks a little cramped?

It's cramp with the setup I had, but with the radiator flat on top, and the fan above the mesh, there is a lot of clearance. I will take a pic for you later to show. Also the new fan I just ordered is less then half the thinkness of normal ones so still will look nice. Also going to get a lighted fan to replace the antec one so it will look pretty too.

Here is a link to the fan I ordered that will go on the bottom of the radiator:

The Scythe Slim fans work surprisingly well. Really decent output for such a low profile design. I run mine totally silent, about 45% power or so the vast majority of the time but can dial them up easy enough since I have them on a fan controller; they are the only fans that would fit for my particular setup...

How thick is the card with the cooler assembled? Does it take up much more space than the stock cooler?

I'm just wondering if I'll have enough space because of the case I'll be using :/

Its pretty much the same thickness as it is currently. I have seen some ppl put the top part of the case back on even, which I might end up doing. Just need to dremel out a section for the hoses.
