Noob building first comp, please help!!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone,

I wanted to know if i could fit an H100 in a Thermaltake V3 AMD Edition

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007BDJ5SM/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i01

I know how to drill holes into metal so its not a problem if the placement has to be shifted, i just want to know if anyone has actually done this before, successfully. Im not looking for P/P just one or the other.

Mobo: GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX
RAM: Corsair Dominator 32GB (4x8GB) DDR3 1600 MHz

Thanks in advance.

i doubt it. i cant even fit a 25mm fan at the top of my thermaltake commander, and the commander and V3 look pretty similar when it comes to size and fan placement

I agree. Looks like a no-go to me. You might be able to fit just the rad and put the fans on the outside, but it would still be pretty tight.
It's so little!

You're right.
I've heard that the 25mm fans barely fit in the V3 top mounts.

The water cooler isn't a nice bet for the V3.

Thanks for the input Poopscooper, I'm going with the Cooler Master HAF 922 instead. It's too bad, i really like the V3 AMD edition.

I duplicated the thread for a reason. I got two different answers. There is always a method to the madness smile.gif
