I doubt it, the EX240 barely fits up there and is 270mm total length I'm pretty sure. The front is both metal and plastic, the brushed stuff is metal with a plastic backing and the frame around it is plastic.

I'm thinking of water cooling one of these cases, Have almost the exact same setup as you except with a GTX Titan.

I was planning on running the AX series of rads from XSPC, Although I was planning on running the top rad without fans.

If I can fit a 40mm thick rad up top without fans (Or fans mounted to the roof) I'll be happy smile.gif

You could run the top rad with fans on the outside if you really wanted, the EX240 is 35mm plus I was using a gasket so around 36mm+25mm for the fans, you will get away with no fans but I don't understand why you would want to. With the MVG you have about 60mm to play with between the top and the 8pin plug.

Picked up my GTX 780 today along with XSPC Titan water block and backplate.



Looks right at home



Now I can tell everyone I own a Titan instead smile.gif



Some very bad photos of the whole thing



Waiting for new LED's to turn up for motherboard back lighting.



My new radiator also arrived today, turns out they sent me the wrong one and I received a 45mm thick rad instead of 30mm thick...

Awesome build! Subbed!

 

i picked up a couple of 780´s and Im planning on going from my fractal arc Mini to this case very soon. They are VERY similar but there are some fine details that make the Fractal a pain to work with.

Im interested to see if the bay res will work well with the Alphacool rad, there is not much room ext to the front rad to put a vertical res and rad as I planned.

 

Would it be possible to take a quick picture of the space between the bay res and the top rad? thanks!!

I would but they sent me out a 45mm instead of 30mm rad which wont fit up top... With the XSPC I had up there you need to use at least a 45 degree fitting on the outlet, there is about 20-30mm to play with.

Ok thanks!

Anyissues with the backplate? i know the 780 doesnt have memory chips on the back but that shouldnt make it loose right?

 

Mine should arrive in a couple of dayse, so excited.

 

Looking forward to see your build

Backplate fits perfectly on the 780.

Really wish I had of waited for Haswell to come out since I ended up holding out for the 780 and have to wait another week to get a new radiator for the top... Wonder if it would even be worth trying to cut my losses and sell the cpu and board now and go with the Maximus VI Gene and 4770k....

Great build thumb.gif
post #20 of 35
nice smile.gif question, are the ssd and hdd drive bays attached to the case with screws or rivets? would've been great if corsair included a dust filter up top so you can have 2 240 rads for intake.
