i thouyght about it but then id need alot of spacers so the radiator does not touch the metal on metal contact
id have to buy a drill and bits as well since i dont have here frown.giffrown.gif

computer life or death situation

i can get it to fit..... i wont be able to take out the ram obviously, and the other fan will be pushing against the VRM on my mobo, it will be putting a few millimeters of pressure against my mobo

if i do this will the vrm overheat or the fan potentially transfer heat since its touching? is it the dumbest thing i can do?

That would be the sensible thing to do surely. If it can fit a 200mm fan up top it must have enough room to jam the rad and fans all the way towards the case door. It looks like that is what the guy did in the thread that was linked to before.

rads and fans fit perfectly, problem is my mobos VRM heatsink is oversized and the ram clips are about 1mm from clearance



if anyone has any suggestions better than the GA UD3H from tigerdirect.com please post
i will be buying it in the morning tomorrow so if you read this and know about TT L10 GT's with xspc rx240s please let me know!!!!!


theres alot of threads on google, not alot explain what they did to gain or create a millimeter here or there, also all are diff mobos frown.gif

How much does the vrm sink stick into the fan? I've had to cut fans up a lot due to this. Fans are cheap, cut the body or corner or whatever to get it to fit.

In this pick I had to grind out clearance for my fittings. You can see the fittings sitting right up on the fan. The fittings actually are past the frame of the fan, but a dremel fixed that up.

gigabyte did the trick

1 fan wouldnt clear because of the screw so i took off the screw. its got 3 screws on and is literally resting on the edge of the ram :/

seems all ram mobos will have ram in remote location so unless the ram is 1 cm down i wouldnt clear it

problem is i dont want to downgrade mobos to fit a rx240




just testing my loop now, few air bubbles but seems i feel it pushing the water into the radiator but i dont feel the same pressure as out frown.gif


i did from Bay/Res (OUT) to back of radiator , front of radiator goes out to the (IN) on waterblock and (OUT) on waterblock goes to (IN) on bay/res (i honestly am hoping OUT on bay res means water flowing OUT and IN means water coming in, if not that would be so confusing and i definately just burned my pump smile.gif
