[Official] Corsair Vengeance C70 Gaming Case Owner Club - Page 333

post #3321 of 8408
Just starting to hook up my C70 set up, and ran into a snag. The Swiftech MCR 220 radiator doesn't quite fit in the front of the case. I can get it to within about an inch of the fan holes by forcing it. I'd rather not do any cutting but will if I have to. Does anyone have a suggestion for a dual radiator that will fit in the front? (I have seen from searching after I found the problem, that I was naive in thinking most 240 rads would fit just fine redface.gif )

I had to cut the bottom of the drive bay off to fit my 240 in front but you don't lose any functionality. All 3 bays still work just fine. Here is a pic for reference. I also had to cut the little tabs off the bottom of the case but I am trying to fit a Monsta haha.

Thanks, joostflux. I really wanted to avoid cutting if at all possible, and also don't want to lay the radiator down if I can avoid it. Note - I'm not afraid to cut it, but this build is for a summer location and I don't have my tools handy.

No problem man, and that sucks about not having tools. Just take this with a grain of salt though because a lot of rad dimensions differ slightly and I don't want ya hacking up your case just to find out that it won't fit. If I was you I would just take measurements (lots of 'em) and go from there. Always measure before cutting haha.

Trust me, you can force it further. Push down on the rad and up on the drive bays. It will bow the case floor, but it can be done no problem.

Also, orientation matters. The end with the holes has a narrower surface area, which means the bottom of the case has to flex less to accommodate that orientation than with the holes on the top.

I was even able to get 2/8 screws in.

Thanks for the hint. I do think I could force it further. In fact, your build was one of the ones I saw when I was checking out the case (nice build!). I may try mounting the radiator on the bottom first, and checking things out. But, good to know I may be able to force the rad in there.

I'm almost done with my build. I just need to paint the smaller squares on the latches, touch up the paint on the bezels, and get some more sleeved cables. Here's Sebar's window with a blue bezel:

Nice job :thumb:These cases look so much better with a solid window. Did you remove the front bezel or just tape it up?
