I think is very doable since you could take of all covers, flip the bare casing and make the appropriete moutning holes for the top and bottom covers, the fron plate either have to be flipped or youll need to cut the bottom and the top of the front cover (this will make the odd bay situated at the bottom and hdd bays at top) a added feature would be that yuo can mount the fatest rad in the top and youll have plenty of space for a fill port if you accomodate this with the top cover smile.gif

Io would be at the wrong sid, windowed side panel would be upside down and youll have to be creative with holes from covers to the inside of the case.. And youll be obligated to do a build log, on the minus side biggrin.gif

Repeated some temperature benching and had some HUGE surprises

http://www.overclock.net/t/1453784/to-high-delta/10#post_21465466

Basically .... with fans at 1200 rpm-ish

-Top screen filter, with 420 under it, when removed gives me another 4.4C of cooling

-Bottom Filter removal and raising the case 1.5" got me 1.3C

That is NOT to say there is more restriction on top than on bottom.

1. This is with Phanteks 1200 rpm fans.... higher rpm fans with more SP may overcome the loss thru the screens filters.

2. This was prolly more affected by the relative size of the top and bottom rads than anything else...... the 280 on the bottom left a large area of floor mesh exposed that was able to serve as a source of fresh air from the front fans which was pulled "down under" by the draft created by the fans, due to bottom restrictions. With the 420 on top covering almost the entire surface area, no opportunity for similar effect up top.

Push pull with a 45mm rad should be doable

But 60 would be too much??

How about the side mount, i will have a 480 in the bottom also, and would like a 240 on the side, once more puch pull. How thick can I go there?

Its hard trying to order parts without the case tongue.gif

A 45mm thick 120-series rad (240, 360, 480) or 140-series rad (280, 420) will fit in the top in push-pull (with 25mm thick fans top & bottom) with any motherboard. Thicker rads, all the way up to an 80mm monsta, may be able to fit by overhanging the top of the mobo provided you don't have anything too tall (ram, heatsink, etc).

This has all been answered in the FAQ in the very first post of this thread (thanks to Jesse at TheModZoo):

FAQ

What is the max clearance for a radiator installed in the top panel?
- The case has a clearance of 70mm for mounting a radiator in the roof. The mounts are offset by ~54mm so installing a 60mm (120mm series) radiator in push pull should not be an issue. As long as you do not have anything taller than 53mm on the motherboard (including ram), you can even install a 480mm monsta radiator in push pull. The X79 Dark, and G-Skill ram CAN be used with a monsta rad in push pull.

A while back when answering this question I had made an image illustrating it ...

^ If you don't have anything taller than 54mm on your mobo it's possible you could put a 120-series (240, 360, 480) 60mm or 80mm monsta up top in push-pull. I've yet to see anyone put a monsta up there yet though. A monsta in push-pull would need to overhang the board by 35mm.

There's a FAQ that answers the most common questions on the very first post of this topic that I believe has been borrowed & posted with permission from Jesse at TheModZoo.
