Or just get an H80
I dont think i will use WC tubing provided...I want to mod the top panel for rad, install it internally with XSPC Rs240..all of these done internally, and none of any tubes will be outside of the case...

Still thinking the possibility as the RAM and top panel clearance will be pretty tight..

So I ran into a few problems.mad.gif
The two fans I wanted to run at the top are too wide. They interfere with the mobo cables and make things a general pain in the ass.
I've decided to get some low profile fans from Scythe which measure at 12mm thickness. That should alleviate my problems.

Luckily my intake fan set up worked quiet well. Im happy to see that it finally came out alright:)

Will be purchasing the fans ASAP, will update soon

Pretty nice...and i do got some suggestions on installing rad or thicker fan...realigned the top panel for the fans a little bit away form the motherboard..probably it will solve the problem...

anyway, can you teach me how to cut top panel for the fans?biggrin.gif

Yeah, I would but the holes have been cut. I really cant move them anymore.
The way to make these hose for a 120mm fan is to buy a 4 1/2 inch hole saw from Home Depot.
Have someone hold the case for you while cutting, as it will tend to catch.
Or use a Jigsaw.
I cut for 15mm spacing, so Get a 2 40mm rad template from MNPCTECH.
Their free just print them out.

Fans came in today!biggrin.gif

These are the 1600rpm versions. I wanted the best CFM to noise ratio as these fans,as I have heard, are loud at full RPM

P.S: There's like 4 or 5 images missing from the first page... I have my pages set to 20 posts per page so it might be the first 2 pages if you have the default 10 per page. Not sure if you knew or not.

Installing the PSU now. Thing fits tight!

Lamptron FC4 fan controller goes in next with a Molex connector from Bitfenix and some 3 pin Y cables.
I'm a bit nervous about this controller. I heard one blew up on a guy:bigeyedsm




Reinstalled the modded back panel. It fits ALL the cables behind the mobo tray. biggrin.gif
