Good to know. I was going to go with two 420s but then I read the FAQ and I don't really want to do any modding to the case if I can avoid it. So looks like a 280 and a 420. thumb.gif

Stick a 280 in the bottom and 480 up top?

I considered a 480 in the bottom and a 420 in the top but I'd like to use the included fans and just buy some more 140sp from phanteks. Plus I'd like the budget headroom for any extra fittings I may need . Trying not to go over £1700 when I build my system in a month or two.

Think you have to be carefull with 140mm wide rads in the bottom as the rad casing can hit the window mounts

I just measured the distance from the PSU shroud to the lip of the door. Thats 150mm, the lip of the window on the side panel is just under 5mm, so that leaves 145mm of space for the rad. I'm getting the Phobya G-Changer 280 which is 145. So just barely. I could get the Alphacool UT60 which is 1mm thinner (I know 1mm tongue.gif). Whats your thoughts?

I had an RX240 so re-used itand got a new Black Ice 480mm as mine are 120mm wide I can get away with a thicker shroud round the rad,

I really like the look of the Black Ice though, quite stealthy

What fans are you using on yours? Because the only thing that puts me of the 480 is what fans. I want decent cooling, so I can lower rpms and keep noise as minimal as possible. I was going to get the Black Ices but then I saw the width. Oh well.
