Thinking about 240 + 200mm or 120mm radiator for CM Storm Sniper. Your thoughts about the 200mm rad.

So, i'm building my new loop on my old CM Storm Sniper. I don't want to do a lot of mods to the case, so the thing i thought about was using the existing fitting areas to had the rads.

The top exhaust area will fit a 240mm radiator and i was thinking about installing a second radiator or in the front or in the bottom. The bottom area fits a 120mm rad and the front will fit a 200mm rad.

What do you think about using a phobya 200mm rad in the front with 2 200mm in push/pull ? I know that 200mm fans don't have a huge air pressure capacity but with a push and pull combo, but using some 200mm Spectre Pro's would do the trick?

The problem with the bottom rad is that i need to buy a new PSU since my HX1000 is a long sucker and would be hard to install everything and keep it tight and clean.

Thanks,
Pedro

use the silverstone 180mm air penetrator's, im using them on my magikool 180mm rad and they move a fair bit of air. But i do recommend a fan controller.

hmmm the Phobya can handle a 180mm fan too ... so maybe a good combo was a Phobya with AP's. Do you have any idea if it's worth going Push-Pull ?

push/pull is a good idea for a larger rad if noise bothers you. I am going to be running push pull at about 900rpm. It makes nearly no noise at that speed and moves a lot of air. defiantly get the silverstones.

So the Silverstone's AP are not an option for now since my local dealer has not a estimated time of arrival. So my options are

a) Use the CM Megaflow 200mm that i have

b) Use NZXT FN 200RB 1300Rpm 200mm fans

c) Use Bitfenix Spectre Pro 200mm.


What's your thoughts?

Can you fit a full thickness radiator up there in the roof or will you need to fit a slimline one? I have a CM Storm Sniper i've always hated because it buzzes quite often and I have to lean on it a bit to make it quiet. It is the perfect case for me to attempt my first case mod and watercooling.
