Corsair 650 D radiator fitment

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey, got a corsair 650d. And though i'm extremely happy with my h100, i'm wondering, if i choose to build a custom water cooler for overclock, what 280 mm rads will fit in the top? Would really love to put a 280mm up top and a secondary 120mm in the rear. Thanks

200mm front, 240 top 120 rear.

Best way to WC a 650D.

I guess not many choices for a 280 up top eh? Now i am curious about the 200 in the front. How would i fit that? The hdd carriers are right there or is it just a really tight fit? Would a 200 on top be better than a 240? I.e. 200 top, 120 rear and 200 front?

It would be a pain to find powerful fans for those 200 rad. If you can, stick with 120/240/360 rads. Most fan choices here.

240mm up top. (Even a 280mm)

120mm in the back.

240mm at the bottom (Requires removal of HDD rack)

200mm in the front.

 

You have options, my friend.

You don't have to chop the bottom. All you have to do is remove some screws and the HDD cage(s) are removable.

 

As for the fans for a 200mm, think about it.. A 240mm rad will use x2 120mm fans. With a 200mm rad, you'll need a 200mm fan due to its size.

 

Personally, I like XSPC rads EX240 for the top, thicker rad for the 200mm in the front.
