As you can see the 180mm PSU cables cover the 280mm holes, so thats impossible even with a 160mm.
The 240mm radiator holes are still covered by the PSU cables and adding the extending length of the res/compression fittings just makes it less possible. Remember the first 10-20mm of PSU cables are super stiff and don't even bend so honestly if you ask me neither can be done. A 160mm might if lucky fit on paper but if you were lucky enough to get them in pre-assembled, they would push on each other creating problems, would be so tight and messy (look horrible), making adjustments to either would be a nightmare etc it's not worth it.
My 280mm in push + 140mm in push/pull is enough for my i7 3930k + GTX 690 so I wouldn't worry about it.
It's not enough to have the room you need the mounting holes to do it and because of the way they are done, raised makes it even more difficult to re-locate. I tried to re-locate my 140mm towards the PSU more but couldn't be done without a lot of drilling/cutting and ugly mods.

Thank you for the picture, it is very helpful and informative. thumb.gif
so i guess this extra room at the bottom can be used to place a pump right? Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
EDIT:
it was this picture that gave me a little hope: (looks like it might barely work with a crossflow)

on a different note, are there any problems connecting to the USB3 header on the SABERTOOTH Z77 with this case? (the little bend to the MB area looks a bit troublesome, AFAIK on the 500R it is impossible at all to connect the USB3 front header to this board)

Not sure about reaching issues, but I know that the USB3.0 header comes with a 3.0 to 2.0 adapter.

I'm in for this case too! Enjoyed working with it and the results I got. I modded the window with a piece of acrylic. I wasn't a fan of the smoked window.

My little review/build log for anyone interested.

I'm going to be adding a 120.1 radiator to the back and some LED fans to the front/rear exhaust this week.

WOW, Amazing build!!!

too bad you couldn't fit the rad the other way around.

i (only) have two questions regarding your build:
1. Were all of the angle fittings necessary ? (except the ones on the bottom rad, which are obviously required)
2. is there enough room in the roof for push pull?

I would have preferred it the other way as well but with such a long PSU it wasn't possible. I'm not sure a shorter one would fit the other way either. It would be tight. As for your questions...

1: Not all were necessary but they made it easier to make some of the connections. I have 5 60 degree connectors. I could have gone with fewer but would have had to use more tube taking away from the clean look.

2: There is if you don't use the standard mounting holes in the top of the case and use the vent holes instead. The vent holes are large enough you can get a screw through it but you would only be able to screw down one of the fans in the top due to spacing. It is still secure enough. This is also very dependent on the size of the heatsinks on your motherboard and if you have low profile memory or not (I do). If they are lower profile it would be much more likely to fit in push pull. It would be a tight fit with my P8Z68 but I could probably get fans in there for P/P.

Nice setup! thumb.gif Thank you for sharing the pics here. I also added link to your build logs at first post. smile.gif BTW, that is 240mm rad at the bottom? It fit nicely, although very close, with 180mm long PSU.

Awesome! Thanks. It is a 240mm radiator. RX240. Dimensions are 125 x 58.5 x 286 mm (WxDxL). The EX240 is a good 10mm shorter @ 121 x 35.5 x 275mm (WxDxL). If I got a 160mm PSU and a radiator that length I could probably turn it around the way I wanted. For anyone thinking of using this case for a new build using water, make sure to take that into consideration if wanting to do something similar.

Thanks for the advice. My PSU only 160mm long, so I have all the space I need for 240mm rad. I'm eyeing Rasa 750 RS240 or RX240 kit. I might go with RX240 kit. The kit already come with a pump. Do you think the included pump is ok or should I get different pump like Swiftech MCP655?
