Installing a 360 rad in a HAF-X

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Has anyone installed a 360 rad into the top of a HAF-X without removing the top drive cage?

Debating whether to use my HAF-X tower or my Azza Hurrican for my next custom water loop build.

The HAF-X would give me more room to play around, but it actually seems like there is less space up top for a rad due to the drive cage compared to the Azza. Haven't went as far as to take measurements yet, but wanted to see if anyone had installed one without having to remove it.

If anyone has experience with either case I would appreciate any feedback or war stories to help me better choose.

Thanks!

I have a Swiftech MCR320-XP in the top of my Haf X and i've seen people get XSPC RX360's up there. You lose the top drive bay usage though, unless you plan on putting a slim fan controller in there.

Noticed you asked if you had to remove anything. Sorry. I didn't have to remove anything, the rad just slipped in through the drive bay as the rad isn't as wide. Hope that helps lol
