Hello,

I am doing a build with the 900D and after much planning I finally ordered all of my parts yesterday. I got a call that the XSPC EX480 radiators that I ordered were not in stock even through the site indicated they were. They are offering me some XSPC AX480 radiators at a discounted price, so I was doing a little reading on them and one review of the XSPC AX480 by a customer on a retailers website said that the bottom front fan of the 900D needed to be removed to fit the AX480 in the lower 480 mm radiator mounting bracket.

Do you always have to remove the lower front fan on the 900D for any brand of 480 mm radiator mounted in the lower position or could it be exclusive to the AX480? (The AX480 is 526 mm long and the EX480 is 515 mm long)



Also was wondering if anyone had thoughts on this:

I can get the EX480 radiators from another retailer for $17 more than the place that they are out of stock... but the place that is out of stock of the EX480 radiators is offering me the AX480 radiators for $190 each, which is ~$40-$50 less than you can get them elsewhere (~$120 each normally). Should I spend the extra $36 over my original budget and get the AX480 radiators or just the extra $17 and get the EX480 radiators somewhere else?



Thanks for the Help,

Daveys
