Radiators in 800D

post #1 of 49
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, at the moment I am deciding to do a build involving the 800D. I want to try and fit a 360 radiator on the top and either another 360 radiator externally on the roof or down the bottom and remove a few HDD cages. I'll get an Asrock Z77-EXTREME6 Z77 Motherboard so the question is can a thick radiator on top of the case interfere with the motherboard. If it can/can't, what radiator would you recommend for the top of the case. I want to try and get 6 fans in the radiator for push/pull configuration but this is all speculation at this stage.

My cousin has the 800D, and there is A LOT of space between the top of the motherboard and the case. I would get the thickest radiator you can find, with push/pull. GTX 360 with push/pull AP-15 Gentle Typhoons are my default recommendation, but you might want to look at other radiators if silence/budget/different fans are your plan.

I'm not sure if you can fit a 360 radiator at the bottom of your case, it seems like it would be difficult or impossible without some major mods, depending on the size of your PSU. I did manage to squeeze a 360 radiator into the bottom of my Cosmos 1000 case.

I have a XSPC RX360 (58.5mm thick) with 120x25mm fans in push & pull in the top of my 800D and it didn't interfere with my Asus Maximus IV at all. biggrin.gif

EDIT:
If you don't mind modding the case you can fit a 480 rad in the top and a 360 rad with a psu extension bracket (http://www.frozencpu.com/products/7798/cpa-252/Lian_Li_PE-01_Power_Supply_Extension_Bracket_-_Black_PE-01.html?tl=g43c241s628) in the bottom.

I like the extension bracket idea, that way the PSU doesn't have to interfere with the setup. A 480 would be nice at the top but I do want to have the 5.25" bays. Do you reckon however if I put the PSU outside of the case that the bottom would have enough room for a 360?
Edit: I read all of your comment and it can. biggrin.gif

I have the 700d which is exactly the same as the 800d except without the hot swap bays. There is enough room for a 360 radiator on the bottom without the extension bracket, but it depends on how long your PSU is.

Well I was thinking a Corsair AX-1200W but that extension bracket looks really neat because then the PSU can be extended out of the case. Is it possible that a 480 can fit on the bottom or is that wishful thinking?

Nice man, I might do a bit of folding but depends on the new Carbon Tax that is being introduced into Australia soon. frown.gif

Even with a 360 radiator, you're going to lose the top 1 or 2 5.25" drive bays if you're using some longer drives.

Well I need atleast 2 5.25" Bays (DVD Drive, Fan Controller). I guess I can lose a couple but not all of them.
