Yes, it's possible. Probably with 420 + 280 at the bottom. Push-pull everywhere? At the bottom you need only one rad in push-pull, second on pull only, so....should fit) For other rad compatibility read the case FAQ thumb.gif

I'm not sure, a quick look at the math says that it SHOULD be possible (25mm fan + 60mm rad + 25mm fan) per side is only 110mm on each side of the case. That's a total of 220mm worth of rads and fans to be crammed in the bottom. I believe the case width is 251mm wide. So yes, it is possible to do that, and have MAYBE 31mm of room to spare (I'm guessing a bit less, since there is a door and that and where the fan mounts are have to have some thickness ... so maybe 20-25mm of room to spare?).

My only issue with putting a pair of 60mm thick radiators in "push/pull" down below is that I personally want to have the air blow OUT from both sides. This means that in order to get a good air flow across the radiator from the 12 fans (8 on one side and 4 on the other), the air will have to come in from the upper part of the case, be drawn down, and exhausted out both sides. In order to do this, you will need a cavity in the middle of the lower section of the 900D wide enough to allow air to be drawn down and through. I'm just not sure that 20-25mm will be wide enough with 60mm rads. If you change the rads to 45mm wide, that opens up the center gap to 50-55mm wide ... which SHOULD be enough room to do what I want to do.

This isn't to say that someone else might want to just suck air in on the 480 side of the case, and blow it through the case and have part of that warmer air drawn in to the 240 radiator on the other side and vented out the other side. That SHOULD work, even with 60mm fans, but the problem with that is that the 240 rad will be taking in the warmed air that is being exhausted from the 480 rad. Not the end of the world to be sure, just something that I'd prefer not to do.

I'm basically looking to go this route, which appears to be a 480 and 240, BOTH in "push/pull" down below:

There's a difference between buying the case and filling the case.
Even George doesn't expect most people to fill the case. Most people will have one rad.

Just all this talk about multi-rad setups dominating the thread, only a small percentage of people will follow through with their plans.

I shy away from cases like this because it causes me to over spend on stuff I don't need.
The urge to fill this case will make a few people go unnecessarily over their budget. Not that I care or they shouldn't

Me, I take it as a challenge by a case manufacturer to not only max out what their "latest and greatest" can do, but to figure out how to go BEYOND what they expect the average to do.

I've already got a price from a local shop to powder coat this monster red. I can't wait to spend more money on something I don't need. biggrin.gif

I'm thinking about borrowing a name from an OCC motorcycle build called "Black Widow", and instead of using plastic tubing for water pipes, going with ridged stainless tubing. To somewhat emulate this famous motorcycle:

So I've been already planning to purchase this case and perhaps fit at least one Monsta rad up top. I will be using 800-1200rpm fans for my setup in push-pull configuration. I'm new in the best silent fan arena and i've been looking around if Noiseblocker NB-eLoop B12-2 is any good? Do you guys have other brands to recommend me?

Ignore it, it's not worth the price.

 

If you're looking for a quiet performance fan, pick up the Noctua NF-F12. It's 300-1500 RPM operating range (on PWM) is solid. It doesn't tick, the motor & air noise is minimal.

Like wise, it has an extraordinary amount of static pressure that you'd normally only see on a server grade fan.

Stainless in a water loop is a big no-no. This will cause a reaction between the other metals in your loop and destroy our waterblocks. The best solution is to use copper pipe and have it plated in nickel at your local plater. thumb.gif

so the case that costs 350$ in the US costs 460$ in the EU, I understand why there is a price difference but I still think its a pretty big difference LOL biggrin.gif

In push-pull? Monsta is 86 mm thick + 25 mm fans + 25 mm fans... 136 mm when in the top you will have ONLY 110.

Will not work unless you will remove the top cover but it's an ugly looking rig in my opinion. Top panel looks awesome on this case.

Brands... Corsair Quiet Edition fans, BitFenix Spectre LED (just for their price and overall look), Scythe Gentle Typhoon, Don't by any fan with higher then 1200-1500 rpm. If you want silent rig, you need also silent HDD's like WD Greens, any hard drive with AAM function or use just ssd's inside.

Fans rpm: not higher then 800. So you need fan controller (check the Lamptron website). Fan speed reducers on 5v are good but you need one reducer per fan or it might overheat or not even work.

Is the top cover and filter one piece or can the filter element be removed? I notice a difference on my rig when I have the top on vs off. Less restriction when trying to force hot air out.
