ATCS 840 Top Rad Size

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello guys,
Need some advice, looking at redoing the watercooling in my ATCS 840.

IMG_2414.jpg

Current set up is a 360 Rad in the top cooling just the CPU (overkill I know...).

I have noticed these on the market: Clicky, and was wondering if it would fit in the top of this case? I know the fans are 230mm, But, do they have the same screw placings as a 200mm?

£65 is alot to spend when I'm not sure if it will fit...

Any answers would be fantastic!

Thanks
Jamie

Actually you would be better off with buying good fans for the 120X3 rad you have going there than to invest in that rad. That rad works well, but the fans that we get for 200/230 mm dont quite have the air pressure that you would be looking for. You would get a very minimal gain out of doing this.

It should fit, and max you may have to drill a few holes, but thats about it.

Thanks for the info!

Well I'm not looking for any gain, I'm looking for a little less sound.

The current set up is 2 years old, the rad and Res are nearly 4!

So its really about getting some better equipment and to make it as quiet as poss.

I'm also not looking to drill holes to make it fit the case, been down that route before! Although the results were good I just don't have the space to work on the case.

You want lower sound...then the best thing I cn suggest is to take that rad and add 3 Scythe GT 1850's to it. Trust me you can barely hear them at 2150 rpm and they have a nice smooth sound. If you want to spend more and get that rad, well thats a choice you will have to take. And since you only have your CPU on the loop, the 2x120 is going to be a lot more than you need anyway.

The 230's wont work inside the case with the RAD. You're better off going with a Phobya 400 and doing a push pull with some CoolerMaster Megaflow's in it. They'd be quieter, it fits the top of the case, and you can put it in push pull due to the thickness of the radiator.
