So 360 top + 240 front is better for airflow than 240 top + 360 front?

I'm thinking about things like aesthetics of the rads placement and I like the idea of a 360 top because I plan to enlarge the side panel window. It will make the res a bit harder to fill but other than that it sounds fine.

If you are talking about the 440, there is 150mm of space from the front to the psu cover. I have posted pictures of this throughout this thread.

Yeah. Based on your pictures and measurement. I feel like for aesthetics, a 30 millimeter rad should look better in conjunction with a reservoir.
But sgtgates suggests that a thicker rad would help. So I guess a decision will have to be made. Aesthetics or performance. :/

I have a ST-30 360 mounted on top with a XT-45 360 mounted in the front. I originally was going to use 2 ST-30 360's, but after I saw how small it looked up front, I went with the 45.

An ST-30 would be sweet up front for push-pull, but that rad has such low FPI it doesn't need it. I also have a large res (60mm x 279mm) which is seen in the pics, and this is what kept me from a 60mm rad.

HTH

edit:

Here is depth with push pull and large res:



Here is two different looks where the front meets the top with dual rads:





And finally, this shows how tight it is with fans..Push pull would require top 360 to loose a fan:

NZXT has the G10 GPU bracket back in stock, place your orders while you can.

I ordered the black one, shipping says 1 to 2 weeks.

Great suggestion Tweakin, especially that the st30 doesn't need push pull just too low of fpi to matter.

Hasty if I were you I would go st30 360 top, and ut45 for a happy medium and still fit nice in front, 360 would be better give you more head room and could run the fans lower rpm across the board. 240 will suffice though but the 360 should fit fine and the ut45 will give a little more juice than the st30 since you have the room.

My blind assessment as far as best fan orientation.

1.

Best gpu/cpu temps (prob best setup)

360 top st30 intake

360/240 front ut45 intake

rear exhaust


or

2.

Better inside thermals, little less gpu/cpu performance

360 top st30 exhaust

360/240 front ut45 intake

rear intake


#1. Will give better water temps across the board because of fresh air over both rads and gives case high positive pressure

#2. Will have less dust build up over time and wont have the potential of the rear fan exhausting and air into the top rad intake in #1

you'll have to play with the best option, I would vote #1 if your environment is relevantly clan and your pretty diligent about it.

Both will suffice to cool your gear though no problem, but #1 gets my vote because of probably higher gpu/cpu clock potential...I like to push the envelope.

As far as the front rad mounting goes get a d5 res holder - 120mm fan adapter like I did here, works great and saves some space + requires no modding to mount res






Few places to get them heres where I get my stuff

Can you measure those external watercooling holes, like with the grommets and without (if they are less than 25mm without grommets I will have hard time with quick connects..)? Just wondering, because I´m using external watercooling so it would be nice to know smile.gif
Would help alot, cos I don't like to mod my R4 to get better water hoses..

Both holes are 30mm. I have attached a picture of 5/8" OD to show the size. They are also really nice and soft.

Thanks alot!
Now I can use QD4 fittings without trouble (female qd4 fitting is 28mm male 25mm) and no need to play with pci slot system (Define R4) thumb.gif
A must buy! Mo-ra 3 build inc..
