post #4511 of 11727
I have question about cooling/airflow. I just installed a Cooler Master TX3 and while it cools the CPU better, it dumps more hot air into the case making everything else hotter. I have the two 120mm fans installed in the back and on top closest to the back. (Both blowing air out.) Is that the best setup for two 120mm fans on this case or should move one to the front of the case to suck air in? I have a fan controller so adding another fan isn't difficult, but it will cost me some $$$.

Hmmm that will be tight.
The ODD cage hangs just below the ODD slot, and in your picture it looks like the top of the rad is about 1mm above the slot!
The fans are 32mm thick as they are 180mm fans, so I think it will push the rad far enough back to clear the switches, just!

Unless I can somehow mount it lower I think its a no go. I could just drill some new 180mm fan mounting holes, and put some nylon washers in to space the fan off the panel rolleyes.gif

I think if you were to just drill out the mount holes to give you that much up/ down movment you would do it easy biggrin.gif

Where's the pump? Under that res? headscratch.gif

I'm trying to guess if I can fit a 200mm phobya up front, an EX240 up top, and a monsta 120mm on the bottom (beside a D5 with EK res).... because mITX is the limiting factor

EDIT: WAIT. YOU FIT TWO 240MMs in the stock position?!

Hmmm o.o Now I'm considering mounting 2x 240s up top (side by side), a 240 up front and a 140mm in the back. I wonder if I could fit a phobya quad 480 up front ...

Also, didn't notice the apogee. Nice choice thumb.gif
