Yeah but then I don't know where I would put the pump and res cause the nzxt hale power supply I have is longer than most 1000w. I already have the bottom hard drive bays out and I don't think there would be much room if I put another rad unfortunately, I'll probably mod the case before I get a different one, I just love it.

Have you looked here for ideas yet?

As the web site says a 240mm rad up top and 240mm rad in the bottom. Same as my CM 690 II thumb.gif

I had an ingenius idea! Can I possibly have(for the bottom) a set up where there is a 120 fan on bottom, then a 120 rad then a fan and rad again and topped off with on last fan to where I could technically have 2 240 rads just have one stacked to save space? Then could I water cool the new 680 I got?

hmmm its not recomended to sandwich radiators , but yeah , it can be done smile.gif

but one 120 rad for the GPU will be enough , unless you want to OC and stuff like that , and even with the OCing , you could OC just fine , its all about the flow smile.gif

Edit

kinda looking at your case , just remove the bottom HDD cage and put another 240 rad in there , it will fit just fine ( unless you have a super long PSU)

probably need to drill some holes for the fans to breathe and some to bolt them to the case , but i bet is doable and im sure there has to be a Worklog of someone doing it too . ill check

Edit 2 XD





this one is my favorite :O

I don't really recommend that. Hot air from the first rad would heat the second. You might as well get a really thick 120 by itself. Ideally you should try to fit that 240mm in the bottom. Are you sure you don't have room? I have also heard you can mount a 240 on the back of the hard drive cages in that case.

I love the white coolant that last guy has but I love the way the green case's flow goes. I'm thinking if I do put the rad on the HDD cages wouldn't there be vibration issues? I hope not! I got the black ice rad in today to see where it can fit, if I can mount it on the back of the HDD cages and have my fans not make any rattling then I'll order another rad so I can have the double 240 set up biggrin.gif then all I'll have to do is wait for next paycheck to buy a reference 680 and an EK water block for it haha xD thank you guys so much for all the help in deciding what to do!
