Have a look here:


2: 120mm biggrin.gif



3: 45mm

why didnt you use a triple rad there, and just flip it so the outputs are at the bottom?

or even better use a cross flow triple rad

- I used the rads I had
- triple rad in this config (push-pull inside the case) won't fit, unless you mod the top and move the top rad left
- I don't like top rad and front rad overlapping - it looks cramped to me

because of that I will move the front rad up a bit (some modding of the front needed) and install 3rd 240 in the bottom.
It should look really clean and tidy and give me more that enough of cooling capacity (I think I will run SP120's @5V ~ 950rpm).

Would a 360 rad fit on the top? Supposing you modded the case to fit it that is.

I was really excited about this case, but not I am worried it might now have enough rad space for what I want to do.

I plan on picking up at least one Titan and getting a second one later on. I am worried that two 240s are not going to be enough to cool everything if they are overclocked.
