How to fit Monsta 560 rad to my case? *pics included*

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

Its a Lian Li PC-Z70 full tower. This radiator is huge. I want to mount it on the top of my case. This is my first time in doing this so hopefully it doesn't require to much drilling and cutting holes etc..

I will have 4 fans underneath the radiator, I might do a push-pull setup later down the track. So I would like the rad lifted at least an inch above the case, so the fans have a little room to breath as well.

Looking at the rad, it only has holes for the fans, nothing else I can use to help with mounting. How do you install these? The rad is longer then my case so It will over hang at the back a little bit but I don't mind.

Thanks!

She's a little dusty! heh!

If you could make (or buy) some simple brackets and mount those to your case and then get the extra long fan screws to mount to the brackets it should be fairly easy to do. Any other ideas?

Edit: It might honestly be better to orient the rad rotated 90 degrees (with fans on sides) because i think you may have restricted airflow otherwise.

I think this would be my only choice without extensive modifications: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=207_160_1366&products_id=17880

to mount 480 radiator on top of your
case without any modifications use,
for example, EK-UNI RAD Holder 120

Yea those brackets should work fine and should look good too. you might be able to check a local hardware store for other types too if you want to save a little bit of money.
