Thread Starter 
Alright thanks for the info bud appreciate your input on the matter. I plan to use 180mm fans the phobya ones that are more quiet than other 180mm fans.checked with oc3d review on the phobya fans.using the new 1080 external/internal rad

Modding a Corsair air 540 may give good results for mounting the 180mm fans and the rads, it has a pretty clean interior.

i don't think the air 540 is big enough to mount a 540 rad internally.

if you take a look at this pic



the fans installed in there are 140mm fans. 180mm fans are significantly larger. at most you can mount a 3x140mm rad. not anywhere near the size of a 3x180mm rad

I'm sorry, I tought the 540 used 180mm fans, but now I stand corrected blushsmiley.gif
