The 60mm is how much radiator is block on the top of my case. I have the Corsair c70. Which has a top vent thats 300mm long. The radiator is 360mm long. So if i was to put the radiator up top and center it under the top vent it would be covered on each end 30mm. Get it?
.... [ case vent ]
[ radiator 360mm long ]
Hah. I think i might not get it. N just grab a h100 or smaller. Id still jave to order more lines, fitting, fluid, took it all up, never done it. Dont know how to test the system. But i know my i5 2500k would love it.
Even with the case blocking off 60mm of the rad. You are still getting 300mm of perfectly functional rad space which is more than you will get out of any closed loop system.
There is a Youtube video (i'd link it if work didn't block access) that is a really good guide on installing an XSPC custom loop. It gave me the confidence to want to try it, check it out and it won't be anywhere near as daunting.
I brought myself a closed loop cooler (Thermaltake extreme 2.0) a week before i started looking into custom loops and i am now kicking myself that i didn't spend the extra coin on one.
Lines, fittings and fluid won't cost you very much and would be well worth the spend if you ask me.
