Radiator Positioning.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So I'm buying my computer slowly but surely piece by piece, and The last thing I will be getting is a raystorm rx240 kit.

I have a In Win GRone case, and I was wondering where I should put the radiator.

I Was thinking of putting it on the bottom and having two 140's on the top pushing out air.

I have 2 140's in the front pulling in, and a 140 on the back pushing out as well.

I think It will look a lot nicer having the tubing cover the entire visible spectrum of the case, as well as the whole heat rising thing keeping it cooler.

Thoughts?

Here's my sad little guy so far:

you said you were getting a 240 kit? if so i don't believe 140's will fit on that, if thats a mistype understood.
i have a kit like that and i ran it like that, until i added a 360 at the top(pics on profile)
and it worked nicely, one thing with the tubing running over the ghx cards(assuming you get one) idk how much of an inconvenience that might be

Yeah that's what I was concerned about. And I would have the 240 rad with two 120 fans on the bottom, and my case supports 3 140s or 3 120s on the top.

But I don't think the rx will fit underneath the drive cage... Ill have to do the top I think.

hes what i would do, granted i just did this to my phantom, cut out part of your drive bays, you don't need them all xD, then mount a 240 there with push/pull fans, and then once you get enough money/later on in your build add another 360 rad to the top and try to mount them push/pull or push at least.

That's what I was thinking about doing. Ill have to wait til I can actually buy the water cooling components before I measure out everything and see what fits.
