Antec 1200 & Corsair H60/Antec 620/Intel Liquid Cooling Help

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I am looking to get into buying a liquid cooling unit from either Corsair, Antec, or Intel. I use an Antec 1200 Case and I am wondering if I'd be able to get one of these into my system without having to remove anything, simply install the unit. I am not comfortable with having to remove a fan so am looking for a way to not have to. If there is a similar unit that allows this please let me know I'd greatly appreciate it. Any Antec 1200 owners ever go through this? The main reason I am uncomfortable with removing one of the rear fans is I dont understand how I would unplug its wire since it goes to a place I cannot get to. Any feedback is most appreciated, thank you!!!

EDIT: Don't know if it helps but my motherboard is an Intel DX58SO.... http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/motherboards/desktop-motherboards/desktop-board-dx58so.html.

The 1200 has dual rear fans pushing air out. You can probably mount the h60 onto one single fan, but you will be pushing hot air mounting it the way it is. I would reverse the air flows in the fan.

I've mounted a H100 reversing the direction of air flow of the dual exhaust fans so it blows cool air in. Removing the fans is very easy, once you unscrew the 8 fan screws both fans come out, the fan speed controllers also just pop out of the housing, once you give them a gentle nudge from the outside.

EDIT: So the rear fan should bring air in and the other fan should push air onto the radiator? I am not sure I have the room to do this.

Also if you were in my shoes what would you do(anyone). What brand/model would you buy based on what you know and where/how would you set it up if you had my case? Thanks!
