I already had a massive pile of 1/2x3/4 rotary fittings, so I stuck with that.

Another 900D FAIL.... I don't know how corsair can market this thing as a watercooling case in good conscious. Or how they can get away with saying you can fit 140x size rads in the top. Sure, they fit but you won't be able to plug in your motherboard!!!!! I can't even plug in my motherboard with 120 series radiator. I'm going to have to butcher the top of the case to be able to wire it up. This is becoming more and more of a nightmare. sad-smiley-002.gifsad-smiley-002.gif

Huh? I could successfully test fit a 420mm rad with my Asus M6F. Why is a rad only different from a corresponding 480 rad in length and breadth prevent a motherboard below in the height axis?

Edit: Even a 120x rad is preventing a motherboard plugging? Can you take a picture of the issue?

Looking really good!!!


The 900D is not the greatest, but compared to most other cases, it has way better mounting options. Not many cases can natively fit 480s on top and bottom. I just hate how flimsy the case is.

Why don't you stick with just push on your top rad?

NO way! Iv'e already had to ditch the pull side of my bottom rad to fit both PSU'!

I'll make it work, just might require a bit of dremeling to make the mounting holes bigger so I can slide the top rad over ever so slightly. I might have to go with mounting the pull fans on top of the case. This would solve two problems A.) the top rad to res tube run, & the power plugs. It would also remove one dust filter though. If I go that route i'll have to look into getting a custom ALU shroud built to cover up the fans.

Come on Skup, that's an issue of the thickness of your radiator/fan combo. You got 110mm spacing from the top of the case to the motherboard standoffs and most boards are higher than the standoffs so give yourself 90-100mm for rad/fans.

No no no! It's corsairs fault! They should of made it .5-1" wider! tongue.gif


Anyways, think i'm just going to stick the pull fans on top. Iv'e seen people with monsta in the top, wonder how they were able to wiggle cables in there.

Got a Monsta with push and temps are amazing. I don't think you need push pull unless you're going for aesthetics. You already have the best fans.

The CPU power connector fits, it's just need some wiggling around lol
