You can say that again! Sadly my modding skills are not up to that but that would be my ideal setup if I ever can afford to go watercooled.

Not really but I took my time testning with all parts before.
Bottom radiator is a little bit closer the window than the other radiators for example. It helps when you got a few cm space instead of a few mm between the motherboard.

I also made the 140mm holes longer so I can move the front radiator up and down. It was nessesary because the top radiator 90' fittings was in the way.

Last of it was to use all the parts in the right order or else they won't fit like the motherboard for example and the fans.

Hey guys, new owner here. Trying to scope out what is the best solution for a two radiator cooling loop. Ive read through and saw that there are some fitment issues with certain thickness rads. Is there a general consensus on the best top and front rad setup and a fan config? Im not opposed to modding but I'd like to only order parts once smile.gif. Thanks in advance for replies.

Can't go wrong with a 360 + 240. As for thickness it's my personal opinion you don't need any more than a 30mm. Highly recommend Alphacool ST30 series as their performance with low speed fans is probably the best out there. The 45mm alphacool would also be a good choice. I have my fans then rad so I could still have the filter on, then fit the top 240 in push pull with no issues.

I would use the Alphacool 45mm rads in 240 & 360, I'd run them in push/pull for both rads, and forget the airflow robbing waste that is known as a filter. I'm actually working on that exact setup at the moment. Once it's built, I'll post up the photos and such. Remember, unless your a complete slob in your house cleaning, filters do more bad than good for 90% of the users.

I just wanted to pass along a great customer service experience I had with Corsair.

I purchased an Air 540 from Amazon, and when I received it, the side window had numerous scratches on it. Amazon sent me a replacement, but the replacement's side window had numerous scratches on it. So I contacted Corsair to see if I could get a replacement side panel. It took about two weeks to get the side panel, but I am happy to report that it was in pristine condition. I have had nothing but great experiences with Corsair customer service, and I will continue to purchase and recommend their products.
