I probably have a 1/4" spacing between the top of my reservoir and the fan. Removing the tray gave me about 1/2" more movement up into the top cavity. It also shows more of the motherboard.
See how thick that rad is and how low it sits into the case covering a lot of the motherboard? Yea I don't like that at all..
Ok, I hear what you're saying. So technically you can put the 280mm rad anywhere along the length of the top radiator bracket (I see that the screw holes of the bracket aren't fixed allowing for movement along its length) and not limited to just the rear fan slot and the middle fan slot, correct?
I'm a noob in watercooling as this would be my first build but I'm planning something like this:
H220X (pump+res combo, rad, CPU waterblock)
Additional Black Ice 280 GTS radiator
Reservoir (not sure which one to use, yet, but do you have any suggestions assuming that I don't remove the top rad bracket and considering the height of the res?)
Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ATX case
I was thinking to mount the H220X in the front in this orientation so that the tubes are in the bottom. Would that be better or the other way around wherein the tubes are at the top?
And for the top 280mm rad, which is better between mounting it where its ports are toward the front of the case and mounting it where the ports are toward the rear of the case?
