The H100i is my first brush with watercooling so I have no idea how other rads are laid out. Kinda sad that in a country where the average ambient temperature in summer is around 35-39 ºC that water cooling systems would be so scarce. Planning on exploring the options of importing a XSPC system before next summer.

at least you have WC in your country. (AIO units excluding)
here we have ONLY AIO units (Corsair, Antec etc) and that stupid Thermaltake Bigwater kit from 2010 or something.





btw, if i were to use a regular 240 rad, is it probable to use a 45mm thick one with fans in push?

I would try to go over all 191 pages but it would take too long. lol

Is there a place selling the solid plastic windows yet?

I could do it myself but if someplace is selling them at a reasonable price I would just do that.

Something i just realized is that the 280mm radiator (any radiator) will fit in this case fine you will just have to mount it awkwardly. I cant make a picture right now but just try to understand what im saying. Lets suppose that the spacing does NOT line up and the corsair hole pattern does not work with the dual xspc radiator. So you can NOT sandwich 2 fans between the radiator and the case. What is to stop you from mounting the radiator directly to the case using only 4 screws on one side? The hole spacing for two fans might not line up but the hole spacing for one will definitely line up. So just pick one set, left or right fan, and screw your radiator onto the case with 4 short screws on that one side. leave the other side floating. Im sure 4 screws on one side is sufficient to hold it in there with no issues. then mount your 2 fans on the other side. done.

Made the picture
- red circles - 4 screw holes for one of the 140mm fans. Screw the radiator in in those spots.
- red outlines (white circles) - where the other 4 screws on the radiator would be, mismatched from the case holes. Dont screw those in. just leave them unscrewed. that side would be floating. (but who cares? I think those 4 screws on one side would be sufficient.)

Actually the only WC that's not AIO in the country is usually sold buy companies that order through Amazon and stuff. It usually costs twice the price (at least). Some places sell water blocks and coolant but no radiators, pumps or reservoirs.

As for fitting a 45mm rad with fans I think it should fit, depending on your motherboard. If it wasn't for the CPU fan header and a heat sink I'd be able to mount the H100i with fans in push/pull config.

at least you have water blocks available and coolant. we have absolutely nothing (well, except distilled water and maybe Coke if you feel lucky with your loop biggrin.gif )

your telling me on RAM / heatsink?i'm the one who has a barb sticking out of the MoBo which is worse than tall ram. (and also plans to use it. M5F...) i know that if i'd mount the fans on the outside it would work or the rad but then whats the point? (but the coolest option is mounting a 360)

LOL actually I just did another search and it seems a local company is importing XSPC parts and kits and their prices are actually decent. Not sure what country you in but XSPC seems to add new stores to their "where to buy" list pretty often it seems.

As for alternatives to mounting 2 sets of fans, I tried this for awhile. You need to take the plugs off the fans and thread them through the holes for the 140mm fans then reattach the plugs. I didn't have matching fans so I didn't keep it set like that for long.

Actually, I might do the side the same olive drab paint if I can find it but I just grabbed a flat white today. I'll start with the front and see how it looks.

How do you pop off the front trim? lol

i'm in Israel. and in here the PC market is already a sort of a niche, which within it the Enthusiast is a niche so Water cooling is pretty much out of the question. plus many would come back to the store after a week with the complaint: "my loop isn't working and i've specially placed the pump on the highest spot so it would run better", or "my PC just died (because of bad assembling and a leak) and i require full replacement" etc.

i know that mounting the fans outside works, but it ruins the look of the case overall and missing the look of fans inside the case at the top (which could be one of the main things in a loop aesthetic)

This is a push pull setup on a C70. But yes you have to mount the radiator and fans in another set of holes:
