Looking for a new case - Page 2

post #11 of 15
I was thinking that you mount the fans up on top of the mounting holes with nothing but rad being inside the case (on the top of the case). You may have to remove the foam on the roof, though.

I dunno. The foam isn't too thick up top, and I don't think there's quite enough space for a full 25mm height fan even then. I could be totally wrong, though. I never really looked into it once I saw I could get a Monsta up front with zero modding.

Consider the Corsair Air 540?

For the switch 810 rad support is great. smile.gif No push-pull on thick rads but it's doable i think.

The plastic feels solid. really solid compared to HAF 912
actually the main clearance isn't all, there is a 36mm (i think, 38mm fan wouldn't just fit so it's about 32-36mm) gap in the roof for fans and the louvers are the best part of the switch 810
a rad does eat into the top drive bay but that is easily removed because they used screws to mount them. LOTS of screws tongue.gif

This case is much more lovely than the Air 540 which has limitations left and right (I was taken in by the air 540 until i recieved a switch 810 just yesterday and realized how much more EPIC it is)

Without hacking out the hotswap bay (+2 other 5.25" bays) you can either install a thick 240 push-pull up front or a seriously thick 240 at the bottom. It does have a real filter there tongue.gif
Also it might be possible to install a 360(top)+360(front)+240(bottom) if you hack out the drive bays
Or do like someone did and install a 480 at the bottom (and 360 top) and move the power supply to the front smile.gif without having to hack out the 5.25" drive bays

I wouldn't mind hacking out the 3 drive bays though but i will need them because all of my rigs will most likely use a fan controller. Or i can grab another Switch 810 and join the two of them together and create Heaven And Hell v2 (Switch 840 lol because 8 = height, 1 = width and 3 is for the widest phantom around so i can't use that.)
