So I got my 780 lightning back and there is some clearance between the GPU and Fans with the h100i in push/pull with the fans on the outer part of the case

Just wanted to see what the size difference was within the case itself with the MSI Hawk 270x vs the MSI Lightning 780


Wish I had an actual camera with flash to show it better

I love the look of this case but can I fit two EVGA 780Ti watercooled in it?

Yup, you can fit them just fine. In fact, even with my 780 Classifieds, I'm able to do push with a 60mm radiator in the front.

I picked up the 540 a few weeks ago and I started planning my watercooling loop. I am looking at the EK Coolstream PE 280 & 360 rads vs the XSPC RX360 and EX280. I would like to be able to put the 280 on the top and the 360 on the front with fans on both rads. Has anyone had any experience using any of these rads in the 540 + the fans that would accompany the rads. Below I drew up a proposed layout.

You may hit fittment issues with the fans that way. I used the coolgates and I couldn't fit all 3 fans on the 360, had to put it up front, a thin rad might work

Not necessarily about the rads, but about the fans.
I'm not sure everyone that likes to do this but you can actually do this

You just remove the dust filter.

He could drill holes moving the top rad away from the front rad (as well as the motherboard to possibly fit push/pull on top as well)
e) never mind, you can't as easily move a 280 as you could a 240mm rad.

I would have the flow reversed from what you are showing personally, go from pump to 360mm to GPU to CPU to 280 back to pump/res. Just my 2cents.gif

And I would lose the 280 for a 240, keeps the fans matching, and will still provide more than enough cooling even if you added a second card, plus, there are way less issues fitting the 240's with a 360 concurrently.
