post #1361 of 18669
To be honest mate I think it is more down to the connectors than the tool. I'm using the original cables on my XFX psu, there isn't much room, if any to slip the tool in both sides. I've got 2 tools and have tried one at a time with them both with no luck. Iv'e got the hang of it now, and my hands are all plastered up and am about to start the last 6 pin.

Don't have the heights of ya MoBo Heatsink ...... if anything will be a problem that's it .... also the 8 pin (and 4 pin if ya have it) EPS plugs next tot he CPU. I don't think you will have a problem with the 480..... I used a 45 mm thick 420 for the extra cooling area and it's just fit width wise ..... it cleared anyway cause of the 45mm depth instead of 60 but the 60mm wuda just cleared the M6F HS by a mm or 2. The 8 pin EPS wuda been a problem tho .... see pics here:

Now, can someone tell my, if I can put Phobya G-Changer 480 V.2 (60 mm thickness) in top with a push/pull, if a I have Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD5H, MOBO!
Thanks!

I really dont have the time, right now, to read all the post..... sorry!

I have your exact motherboard, and I could have gotten away with a 60mm thick 140mm wide rad, as it just just just would have fitted, so a 60mm thick 120mm wide rad will work fine.
I went with the 45 thick rad as i don't know what my next motherboard will be and so i didn't want to be constrained by it!

Hey Philly .... smile.gif

How'd you find getting the 420 in ? It was a perty tight squeeeze with significant rubbing involved (rad to case) when I had to twist and tilt into place. While the 60mm would fit in the case .... I didn't think it would be possible to twist into place.

I had to take a grinding wheel on my dremel to file the tool down to a sharper edge ..... then it worked just grand.

Glad to see some nice builds in this case finally. I finally got my loop drained last night, luckly the drain port on the 480 was in the front, and with just a little spill, I was able to drain the loop without any issues. My Enthoo build is officially no more. The hardware is back in their respective boxes, and the case is ready to meet to my Dremel.

Time for a new rebuild in the Enthoo.

But......are you sure!? For a push/pull configuration!? 480.60 rad!?

It was a bit of a pain, I had put the 1st set of inner fans in it already, and didnt fancy twisting anything as i had the mobo already in!
I ended up sliding it in through the front. Took all the Drive covers out and it goes in, just... Bit of rubbing happened, but it didn't damage the rad. That was an Alphacool one tho, if a hardware labs or wider variant was used I don't think it would go in that way

Yeah it would go, I'm running push pull with a 45mm and there is plenty of room, I'll see if I can get a pic for you

On another note, the castor base from my main man @doyll has arrived! Ready for the install!
Looks mint, will get some more pics up, hit him up if you want a base making, the quality is outstanding!

Funny, I had no trouble getting the top rad in at all -- it was the bottom one that gave me a headache. It's really a rather narrow space, perfectly fitted for a 120mm rad, but when you factor in the rubber grommet on the cable pass-through plus 3 fan wires it's kinda tricky to get it manuevered in so that the screw holes line up perfectly to be anchored down (and I'm willing to bet a Black Ice or wider rad wouldn't fit down there at all). Maybe an optional 360/480 rad mounting plate, rather than just the 240 already included, would be a welcome addition in EP v2.0
