420mm (140mm x3) rad enclosure

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys. I tried making a thread earlier, but it wouldn't format. Sooooo here's the jist of what I'm looking for. tongue.gif

I'm planning a SFF build, and I'll be putting a 420mm (140mm x3) rad parallel (horizontally) to the case.I plan on bolting it to the case in some way while running a pull setup.

Do any of you know of an enclosure of some sort I could put the rad in to give me some space from the case (to pull in air from) while remaining visually attractive?

Thanks for your help. smile.gif

The only thing that I can think off is:

Design and build one your self.

Or

XSPC RADIATOR MOUNTING BRACKET SET (M4)

There is another option, you could go for a KOOLANCE 3x140mm FAN RADIATOR SHROUD and then use 40mm 6-32 standoff's.

Thanks for your input man.

I was actually thinking about that shroud, to be honest. I've been kinda kicking myself trying to think of how to give it some air space.

Thanks again man.

Thats alright cobber.... yeah I have a similar issue with wanting to mount rads on the outside of my case... An other thought...If you use/or chose to use the tad stand legs mount the fans in a blow set up and attach the legs to the fan instead of the RAD... but those legs will give you about 40-45 mm for air clearance...

This is what I ended up doing...

What about one of these?

I can't tell which model supports the 420 rad, but it fits that shroud.
