It is my fear that the armor may get in the way of the back fans/ h100 rad. If someone would please measure their sabertooth z77 and let me know the exact height so I can know for sure.
As this is an older full tower case, before h100 and sabertooth z77, it is next to impossible to find this information and I have been trying for 1-2 weeks. I want to join the club!! thumb.gif.
Again I would like to know the height from the base of the board to the top of the armor at the back where all the plugs are. (I suppose it’s only the height when the mobo is sitting flat with CPU socket facing up.)
Thank you!
here you go 45mm +/- 1mm

Thank you very much!

Fast reply biggrin.gif

Looks like I will be joining the club as well! I will post back my pics once built in 2 or so weeks.

This may not answer question right away. but i literally just finished mounting a h100 with my Sabertooth system. the CPU cooler piece itself fit fine over the CPU, however my case was a a tight fit for the radiator and fans...ill post pics hopefully so you can get a better idea of what i mean. Also my case is a antec 25.......not the best case for making a factory looking mount without some custom work.... this cooler is sick FYI!

@chillie...The small 35mm fans that came with your board....are they both 3 hole mount??? Both of mine are and the surface mount under the cpu socket looks funny with only 3 screws in it. Just curious how many shipped without the 4 hole fan shown in the manual.

heres the CPU.


here is my radiator setup. it has four fans attached to it, so there is even airflow despite the radiator being internal/at the bottom of the case. The zip ties are temporary they are ugly as hell! i just need to figure out a better mounting system.

this cooler made such a drastic improvement on my temps especially @ overclocks past 4.5. thumb.gif

It is a nice case, and has all the specs wanted. Two things to be mentioned though:

1. Not made for h100: push/pull on the back will block the side panel 230mm fan. Option is to remove the side fan, or remove the bottom fan in push/pull.
2. All the plastic parts are cheap and break very very very easily. This includes the parts that fix the top of the case in place as well as the handle for the side panel and the 'handles' for the drive bays. In fact, I broke the handle for the side panel the first time I touched it, and all I did was move it in the direction required to open the door.

Besides these points, cable management is a breeze and airflow is all thought out. It’s like a HAF X but before they decided to make it 'ALL' premium.

Do you have your heart set on push/pull? Are you in love with the Side panel fan? Personally, Side panel fans annoy me. And personally i would push /pull because of the performance gain. I wouldn't split up the fan bank either just to accommodate a side panel fan. My vote, dump the side panel fan. Unless you get creative and mount the rad somewhere else. This guy has some good pics of speedo stripped down. might give you some ideas maybe not. Good luck:thumb:

Oh how much hardware are you going to have inside is another factor..like graphics cards pouring heat into the case...if you have high case temps then maybe you will need to keep the side panel as an intake..Things to think about.. and maybe just run push on the rad. What mounts are available in the roof ?
