Short answer: A 45mm thick 120-series rad like a 360 or 480 in push-pull with 25mm thick fans will extend down to even with the top of a mobo, but also will be ~54mm offset from the mobo so as long as you don't have anything taller than ~54mm on your mobo, like heatsinks or ram, etc, it's possible that you can get away with an even thicker rad, a 60mm or an 80mm thick monsta even, if you don't mind the rad & fans overhanging the mobo.

Rather than reinvent the wheel, here's a more extensive recent reply to someone else where I'm referencing a 480 rad, but all the same clearance issues also apply to a 360 rad too except a 360 won't affect the front 5.25" drive bays like a 480 might.

There is 70 mm of clearance from the top of the mobo to the inside top of the case, so an Xt45 with push fan (45mm + 25mm) comes just even with the top of the mobo. A 45mm thick rad with 25mm push fan will fit perfect with any motherboard because 120mm-series rad/fan mounts are also offset by ~54 mm (140mm series fans/rads are offset by ~44mm).

LEAD Technologies Inc. V1.01

With that offset, as long as you don't have anything on your mobo taller than ~54mm, you can run even thicker rads in push pull.

Do note that you will pretty much lose the use of your top 5.25" bay with a 45mm 480 with push fans.

Yeah I stopped at 4.6, I have no doubt my chip will do it, I just want to get everything nice and stable for a bit before I get the oc itch

Man I want to delid but am soooooo nervous about doing it frown.gif

Just got this case, it's awesome! Didn't expect how big it was as my first full tower case.

I have two concerns that may just be specific to me:

1. It's hard for me to screw my PCI bracket into the case for my soundcard and NIC. When seated in the PCI slots the screwholes don't align and I have to push the card back a little to make it fit. My GPU seems fine.

2. The bottom fan seems to be scraping against the fan mount occasionally. I can wiggle it a little to make it stop but eventually it just keeps making this rattling sound.

Other than that, I can't wait to start WCing.

I have exactly the same problem when the fans run at >50%. Haven't found a solution for this yet...

Instead of moving PCI card push the back of case in/out a little to get it aligned. Should than line up. thumb.gif
