I will be installing an h100i. I just did measurements and it looks like the rad will sit up against the 230mm fan but it should fit and still operate

Sweet, I hope so. I want to start running the wires for everything, but if the H100 doesn't fit without me flipping the front panel back to how it normally is, will change which side I run the wires down for the fan controller.

Best thing to do is leave your fan the way it is and place the rad in position without the mounting hardware and see if you need to flip it or not. Saves time and frustration in the long run thumb.gif

My h100 fit with the 230mm bitfenix fan. Just remove the optical bay tongue.gif

(I realize you probably want to keep it but meh)

Yeah, since my front panel is flipped, I don't have to worry about the H100 hitting the optical cage. And either way, I have already taken that cage out since I got bored of having it there, and just mounted my fan controller to the front panel using double sided tape, and reinstalled the lower hard drive cage.

So you have no cages. Your fan and h100 will fit. I don't even understand your question

My front panel is flipped... so what I'm worried about is if the H100 will fit in the top of the case, without hitting my 230mm fan... since the front panel is flipped, the fan sits quite a bit higher than it normally would.

If no one has double-checked, i'll check for you when I get home. is the bottom of the optical 5.25" bay flush with the ground of the case? my optical bay is dismounted but I can just throw it in

I think you just convinced me out of a custom loop, LOL. At this point, for a cpu only loop, I just can't validate $350 for a nice custom water loop (we're talking compression fittings, rad, pump, res, cpu block and 3 extra fittings) over a $150 Swiftech H220. The performance really shouldn't be overly different anyways, just the looks which I do like a lot, but not for so much rolleyes.gif So thanks?
