Based upon the drawing, I'm thinking I can fit a EK or other 60 mm reservoir near, not necessarily on, the bracket up and against the back of the 5.25" bays...... It will be tight with GTX 770's (71mm) but the Photon (75mm) or Aqualis (800mm) is definitely out. 760's are fine with anything but ya can't get a Full Cover WB for those. It does seem odd that they didn't think that for an extra inch of depth, they could fit 780's in there with

Looked at the Six Eyes ? I like it cause buttons "press and stay in" when door is closed / "press and stay out" when fiddling.
Got an e-mail from Bucky.... Frozen has in stock

I think they better fix that ..... unless they wanna start replacing peeps MoBo's
1. Most MoBo fan headers have 1 maybe 2 amp limit.....the fans are 0.14 amp .... that would be 7 max and that's if ya don't include an allowance for inrush current. If someone put in their two 480s in push - pull, those 16 fans would blow the header.
2. As you said, it's not on the web site.

I can if I have to mount the Monsta in push/pull at the bottom, but i kinda prefer the top if I can. Since there are no 480mm UT60's around it's between the Monsta and the XT45. To keep the build simple, I just want one rad to cool my 3930 and keep the fans low and quiet.
Looks tight .... I don't think the RAM will be the worry for most.... I see the same issue as Jesse pointed out. For me, the CPU wire(s) coming down making that 180 bend look to be the limiting factor as well as the heat sink.
The attached pic has the caliper set to the Monsta's depth .... I figure lengthwise, ya have about 500mm between the plastic thingies that snap in the case top and the front plate at top of 5.25" bays .... this keeps the rear fan from being a consideration. My RAM sits 50mm off the MoBo (and 105mm below the rad mounting plate), and the MoBo heat sink sits MoBo heat sink sits 34mm above the MoBo and 75 below the the Rad mounting plate. Doing some math, fan / rad mount holes are 8 mm from edge and the top of my RAM lines up with that centerline.....so the edge of the Rad should be 42mm (50 mm RAM height - 8mm to fan edge) off MoBo surface. For my heat sink at least (34mm off MoBo), that gives ya 8mm to spare between rad and heat sink with a Monsta .... a 140mm would hit it if deeper than 75mm.
If case was > 4 mm wider here, it would fit 140mm wide Rads
If case was > 6 mm taller 80mm, 120 wide Rad in P/P (86+25) would miss the RAM (at least on M6F)
If case was > 11 mm taller 80mm, 140 wide Rad in would miss the HS (at least on M6F)
If case was > 10 mm taller 60mm, 140 wide Rad in would miss the HS in P/P (at least on M6F)
But getting back to your situation .... I don't think the RAM or MoBo heat sinks will be as much of an issue as the CPU's EPS cable if it's located in the normal upper left location.
BTW, why doesn't anyone make 90 degree socket adapters ?......................................................O................
The "O" is a hinge.... to build it ya rotate the hinge 180 degrees so it's easy to assemble. Then just rotate it back to 90 or whatever angle ya want to use .... could have clock stops .... Of course when ya rotate, the wires get slightly shorter so ya have different size rods to slide under the individually sleeved cable to keep taught and pretty.... eliminates wild turns and let's case modders show off their sleevingEdited by JackNaylorPE - 10/27/13 at 12:29pm
