Has anyone tried fitting a custom mounted radiator in the bottom of the air 540, my ideas are leaning towards EKWB watercooling for my 2x 980's but it's difficult to keep that cool with a single 360 rad in front.

Now where are the sleeved cables? ^^

Coming to a case near you. I don't have the patience to do it so I gotta order some.

How's the EK kit working out for you, thinking on changing out from my 220x?

Loving it. THe Vardar fans it comes with are absolutely insane. I installed an H220x and I absolutely hated the quality feeling of it and just overall mounting of it. Felt more like a toy. Of all the all in ones I've installed for myself and customers as well as custom loops I've done, outside the custom one I did, this thing is just pure quality. Nothing feels cheap on it. Ya the price is higher but on the flipside, they're using a really good pump, the hosing isn't some gimpy little spaghetti, the block is really well made, the fans are insanely awesome, radiator is pretty darn thick, there's a fan hub on the radiator so you don't have to have fan cables going everywhere. It may be pricey at 200 dollars compared to a cheaper one like the 220x, but it also FEELS like a 200 dollar unit. thumb.gif

Over the stock cooler, my temps dropped like 15-20c under load OC'd 400mhz.

Are those Vardar fans loud? I currently have some phanteks which are doing pretty well but the static pressure is around 1. The top of the line vardars are like 3 but they are like 33 dcb compared to 19 for the phanteks.

I've got a few different sets of Vardars and the only one's I would consider loud are the Furious Vardar's which aren't the standard fan on this kit.

I have seen it done although it requires a bit of work. You would have to cut off the rail mounts for the 2 hdds at the bottom and probally cut out bigger fan slots. It would also be wise to install some filters. Why not just mount a 240 in the front, a 360 on top and a 120 on the back slot?

the 360 would be in the front 240 on the top and 120/240 in the back
