Best Antec Kuhler 620 (on GPU) mounting in HAF 912?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I bought an Antec Kuhler 620 at Microcenter since it was on sale for $50, so...I said, "well, my 6950 sure does get hot at stock clocks, why don't I perform this miraculous mod." While I was at the store I totally blanked out and didn't buy memory heatsinks, I only have 4 or so left because I put them on a 5770 I had a while back. Anyways, I will be picking them up after work so I can get the rig back together so I can overclock this puppy (possibly try to do some BIOS flashing to something that has unlocked frequencies (won't unlock to 6970, I bought mine early 2012).

Pictures of it.

Attached with zip ties, I may get the dwood bracket, still debating where I want to mount this thing though.

*

I believe I mounted it to allow the most length and best tubing routing.

*

This is where it gets tricky. I can't mount the rad in the back (optimal) because it is too tall and doesn't have enough clearance with top exhaust fans. I am not too keen on removing one because then I would feel the need to remove both (OCD, I suppose).

*

Anyways, this is what I would propose, I would need to get/make some sort of bracket that would allow this sort of mounting. Also, I will be switching that fan's orientation TO push NOT pull.

So, what I am getting at is this: should I mount it like this? I have no DVD drive in the front (I use an external one) so there is enough room because there is only a fan controller on the bottom.

What fans do you have on the front panel? If its a 200mm fan, you might be able to mount the 620 on the inside of the front frame using the 120mm mounting holes.

No, I would not use a 200mm fan to ever push through a rad (very low static pressure). There are two 120mm fans down there anyways, I could get some long screws and still mount it on the top front panel fan though.
