Supernova 1000w

Could the longer 1000w unit fit into the case without obstructing the hot swap bay or would I have to remove the bay for it to fit? Thanks for any input and I look forward to joining the club. thumb.gif

It would be a very tight squeeze if it will fit at all. In my post #9719 you see the space between my Cooler Master V1000 and the pcb of the swap bay. The V1000 is only 170mm long in comparison to the 200mm long EVGA. At least you would have to remove the pcb.

Looking forward to see you’re finished rig.

here's how my Thermaltake Toughpower W0133RU 1200W 200mm psu looks like in mine using the factory psu shroud/bracket. with some minor mods, you can route some psu cables under the hot swap and bay drive areas to clean up the bottom a little and to un-crowd it. i have my psu cables going to the lower half as you can tell in the pics. there is 42mm from psu to hot swap pcb.

I was hoping id find a response like that. I just bought the case and was thinking about pulling air in through the top, but i think a 120mm radiator at the back and some nice case fans on front with the cooler master 200 helping exhaust sounds perfect any disagreements? thanks guys this page is a lifesaver.

I think the 120 rad in the rear makes sense only if you don't wish to use a 240 rad up front. The case was designed to support up to 2 240s with the second potentially located on the mesh lid. A 240 on the front fits cleanly too. Also, if I'm reading your post correctly, you'd have the 120 intake and the 240 exhaust? I think you might want to swap those around to create positive pressure and keep the dust level down.

If you want WC then don't bother with single 120's unless you absolutely have no other choice. You can have up to a 360 in the front.
And in a case as open as this, you absolutely want positive pressure.

Thanks for all the help guys, I think I'll go with either the supernova 850 which is 180mm or the seasonic x850 which is shorter still. I'm also going to be using the nzxt kraken x61 up front for cpu cooling and in the future I'll go full custom loop.

I appricate the insight, I'm more confused than anything. The enermax liqtech 240 I really wanna put in says exhaust only. So I'm thinking that would mean I'd have to exhaust out the front. If you can walk me through this it'd be greatly appreciated. I'd really like too do a push/pull on the 240 in front while exhausting out a 120 fan in back and 200 up top but I also have a gtx 980 dimensions 10.98" ×5.51" that I want in it. And again from what I gather I believed I could only exhaust out the radiator. Thanks again

I think almost all radiators say "exhaust only" but the implication is for best performance, not necessity (i.e. not pouring the exhaust heat from the radiator into your case and heating up your components and GPU). Judging by the photo of the Liqitech 240, the fans are reversible.

My configuration is to use a 240 on the front as an intake (filtered) with a 120cm rear intake as well and a 200cm exhaust fan on the mesh lid. FWIW I am also running a 980 and I have no clearance issues.



And related to the PSU conversation from before, this is my clearance with a Corsair HX860i. I decided not to sleeve the cables all the way to the connectors for clearance reasons.

Man you rock so exhaust out just the top. thank you. I also just spoke with cooler master and they recomeded their Nepton 240m which seems like a nice set up ready to solve all my questions. i see your setup isnt push/pull if i added two more fans to the back of that radiator am i still gonna have no clearance issues?
post #9790 of 10431
I have the Nepton 240M in the picture above. Great cooler. The photo from my post above shows how much clearance there is with the radiator on the inside on the case (enough for 2 fans on the inside) and the picture below shows the fans on the other side, although this is somewhat gratuitous because you already knew those fit. FWIW, you could probably put the radiator on the outside and still clear two fans but I think the Nepton's hoses would get in the way.
