I know when I did a build in the In Win 909, I had him cut me acrylic fan hole block off plates. They worked great.
I like the idea, but how many different ones would we end up with? Radiator fin areas are 120x120, 120x240, 120x360, 140x140, 140x280; .. with how many possilbe radiator placements? Or at least common placements?
I wondered if if might be easier to apply adhesive vinyl the size of mounting plate to block everything, then use a razor knife to cut out out the radiator area before mounting the radiator? Once radiator is installed, 1/2" 1" and 2" vinyl tape would make quick work of it, but one side would be sticking in open areas .. a built in fly catcher. D

At a guess the back vent area is only about have the area of 2x 240mm radiators so would be restricting radiator airflow, especially at higher fan speeds when it's needed most.

If top is restrictive in your situation add another set of fans, if radiator is offset at top there is 28mm of clearance between bottom rad fan and 8pin power pin, also there are no clearance issues with rear fan, except you will need G 1/4" extender or compression straight fitting etc on rad to avoid clearance issue with bottom left fan
No room for fan above mounting plate.
Yeah, could sandwich top fans between mounting plate and radiator.
I found on the Evolv ATX just unlatching the top and just setting it back on leave a nice 5mm space .. that's way more additional venting than top has stock venting.Edited by doyll - 10/6/16 at 8:43am
