Ahh, that makes sense. Why push pull though?are you planning to run the fans at a lower speed? You could also try mounting the rad further in front sacrificing the top most ODD bay area. That might allow you to use the actual mounting points. Let us know how it goes

This may be a silly question, why don't you use 2.5" drives?
I'm pLanning on using 4 myself in the ssd caddy for storage.

The plastic mounts probably aren't secure enough to hold a mechanical hard drive because of all the vibration.

I just thought better ventilation. I'll probably just push air out the top with a couple SP120s. I might even try to find a cooler with a thinner rad but I love the H105's pump design too much, haha

Hmm, I may have to find a spare 2.5" mech drive when I get home to try this.
my drive caddys are pretty secure, but as of now they are empty.

What would be the best way to test if they are capable of withstanding the vibrations?
an hdd benchmark, or maybe just transfer giant sized files? I will post any findings.
I was going to get 4x 500GB or 1TB drives in RAID for storage/games/media, now this has me thinking.

I'm not sure but something constantly vibrating only held to the case by like two tiny clips doesn't seem the most stable

Stability is no fun. tongue.gif
I'm wondering if maybe some rubber washers would help the vibration.
I know its impossible to eliminate completely, but I'm sure every little bit could help.
Figured it would be safe as the caddy never really wants to come out, or go back in, even when empty.

Of course this is all speculation.

Huh, on mine they go in and out fairly easy but once they're secure shaking them a bunch feels fine.

@landgraab
The H105 would do fine.no need to get anything thinner or the cooling capacity won't be sufficient on the aluminium rads.

@ArgiesteinDo 2.5" hdds come in higher speeds and capacitues? Also they're pretty costly compared to the normal ones and since landgraab is editing videos, he'll probably need a large capacity one

@cephelix
Up to 1TB models can be found with 7,200RPM.
There are 2TB models out there, at a lower 5,400RPM.
The decision would than be size vs. performance.

@landgraab
There are also 12mm thick fans you could look at.
The only problem I can see with thinner fans is less static pressure, and the high performance fans are going to be noisier.

Why can't anyone make a perfect fan!?
