Good to see your issue resolved. I wonder how wobbly these radiators really are without the bottom bracket.

It is pressed against the right panel so it is reasonably secure but still has some give. One of the reasons I'm going with flexible tubing is because I plan to transport it once in a while. Lets just say that without bottom bracket wouldn't feel comfortable to do so.

So the good news are that today I got my Black Ice Nemesis Xflow. Bad news is that it does not fit quite as I was hoping. The thing is that when I put it in with my SP120 fans there is so little room between the fans and MB that I am unable to connect 8 pin CPU connector. Only way to connect it is when I remove bottom bracket. It seems that the connectors latch is pushing against the fan. So there are two ways to deal with this - I can cut off the connectors latch or I can run the radiator without bottom bracket. What do you guys think I should do? Any ideas?

E: Another problem is that I had to remove bottom screws for one of the fans as they were quite round and interfered with MB but I can get ones that are flat and it should be ok.

E2: Cut off the latches for the CPU power connector and was able to install the radiator correctly. thumb.gif

Sorry for potato photos



Try doing a Pull fan set up.

Does anyone know what cooler I should get if I'm looking for the best balance between noise and cooling? From my experience with Corsair, their AIO's are too noisy for my preference. I'm down for air or liquid. I just need something that will fit, as that seems to be the biggest challenge. I have an i-6600k that I'd like to OC too if possible.

I'm considering the H220-X, but I've heard mixed opinions on how it fits... so I would need some assistance.

I heard it might not work with RAM with large heat spreaders or mobo's with large heatsinks. Do you think it could fit with this RAM and mobo? I'm afraid to order everything and find out it doesn't fit and be stuck without a heatsink.

Well I fixed the problem by cutting of the latch that holds the connector. However, I think I will switch fans around to the outer side thus will have positive air pressure and radiator between fans and MB. This should provide better cooling with cool air going through the radiator and on to MB heatsinks. No?

Check out the photos in my profile. You should have no problems fitting a H220-X in your build. I started off with just the H220-X on the cpu, then expanded to gpu, then expanded to second rad(184mm). All with a 200mm fan on the front as well. It fits nicely in the 250D.

Thanks, that gives me more confidence.

Do you think I could have decent positive pressure and case airflow using a 200mm intake (Cooler Master MegaFlow) and the H220-X2 being the out-take?

From my experience with my H240-X in my Corsair 450D, after out-fitting my H240-X with after-market Noctua fans, I never really find myself needing to run my NF-A14 3000RPM fans above 24%, which is about 38 CFM per fan. So if my 140mm fans aren't exhausting over 80 CFM, there's no way 2x 120mm fans will be exhausting over 80 CFM - and the Megaflow appears to have a rating of 110 CFM.

The only thing that might throw the airflow balance off is the videocard - where if I'm using a blower-type cooler then I'll be exhausting probably around ~25 CFM extra under load. Is it necessary to use blower-type card with this case? (Edit: I didn't realize until now the card was pulling air from outside the case until now).

I would just throw 2 extra 80mm fans on the back but it doesn't appear to be filtered and I want this case to be low maintenance. If the 200mm fan really pushes 110 CFM CFM then I think I could make the air-flow work without that extra fans.

You should be fine with just the 200mm as intake and exhaust with the 120mm's on the rad. I had my setup with an even inflow vs outflow when I had just the cpu on loop and it worked great. That way I could keep the 200mm at a lower speed to keep quiet.
