I know using a 420 up top will cost me one 5 1/4 bay. i have many hard drives which is why I don't want to lose any cages. If I have to lose the bottom cage for whatever, or in the future need to add a http://www.frozencpu.com/products/10060/cpa-294/Evercool_ARMOR_Dual_525_Drive_Bay_to_Triple_35_HDD_Cooling_Box_HD-AR-R-BK.html?tl=g34c147s238 to turn 2 5 1/4 bays into 3 3 1/2 slots, I'll need to have two additional bays remaining. If it ends up being not possible then so be it. I could always of course mod 1-2 hd's into those bays with some MacGyvering.

Where do you have your fill/bleed ports? Were they built into the 420 up top or the 280 in the bottom?

Yeah you have to drill them out, and you would be hard pressed to find a man enough drill that can drive a 20mm drill bit and be able to get in the primo to do it. I used a steel hole punch after drilling a 3mm and then 10mm pilot hole.

Its an awesome tool as it cuts clean, no burred edges.

Yeah i lost the use of that bay once the tubing was in

and depedning on the route of your tubing you may lose the next one aswel. Couple that with the loss of the top one due to the top rad, leaves only 2 optical bays left. Not a problem for me hence why i did the mod in the 1st place.

I didnt get too excited about fill bleed and drain ports. My drain comes off my pump in the back (which is one of the lowest points anyway)

The barb on the valve that pokes out rotates vertical so i can get the door on, and if i need to drain i just attach a spare bit of tube to lead into a bucket.

I filled into the top of my tube res in the middle of the case


using one of these


and then i slightly loosened one of the plugs in the top rad when i needed to bleed it, but it wasn't that bad as i got the majority of the air out via the res, tilting the case, and adjusting the pump speed for about half an hour.

my build log is here if you want a look or more pics etc.

What size rad is that? 400mm seems pretty big for a 240 or 280 rad in the front. Its getting late -ish here in the UK, so I'll pop the door off tomorrow and measure up wherever you want it to go tomorrow

Yea those don't seem to be right. According to frozencpu it's less than 300mm long but according to this:
http://www.aquatuning.de/product_info.php/language/en/info/p15932_Alphacool-NexXxoS-ST30-Full-Copper-280mm.html

It's right over the 313mm clearance height I measured earlier. Measurements are all over the map so we need someone that actually has the ST30 280mm to verify. Anyone?

Ya I got those from Martin's site and forgot it was for the ST30 120.3 sorry.

I edited my post with the dimensions/technical drawing's from Alphacool's website but i agree having someone with it in hand to do measurements would be ideal.

The 280mm ST30 is 317.5 mm (153.5mm + 164mm) acc'd to Alphacool. Is that the rad you all are talking about?
I wouldn't trust any measurements from anywhere else unless I was measuring it myself.

I'll measure up tomorrow the space available for you guys and the dims of my xt 240 and we can go from there.
I think you may struggle however without some serious dremelling, as the specs from alphacool say that the 240 xt45 is (LxWxH):280x124x46mm

Now a 280 St30 is going to be a minimum of 280 long (2x140mm fans) and then some more for the end tanks. The Alphacool drawing lists it as 317mm long. From memory there wasnt much more room in the front when i put my rad in, but i will measure up for you guys tomorrow

Edit: haha, unicron beat me to it!

Thank you! I somehow missed that on their site. So a total height of 317.5mm means we are about 4.5-5mm too short to fit it in there. Oh well. Looks like I'm stuck with a 240 rad frown.gif
