As you can see the cooler sits parallel with the riser card on the board, and can easily fit high profile ram thumb.gif

Video in action in my rig (250D) from before: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=OJFByT3rrQs






Thats pretty cool! I've been looking for an air CPU cooler for my 250D, but I thought they would be too big to fit neatly so its nice to finally see how an air cooler like that looks in a 250D. Is it still easy to route cables with that big of a fan? Also is there still space for the optical bay?

Just finish putting my computer together and my corsair h100i is making a really annoying grind noise!

If i lay the case on the side it goes away!

I have the latest firmware and all that mad.gif

Anyone had this in their 250D case ??

Do you have your pump running at max? I have the h60 2013 which is a similar pump in my node 304. I connected my pump to a fan header (you can also connect directly to your psu), and I can't hear it over the sound of my gpu fan.

Sadly not enough room for an opticle bay, but I'm out of sata ports anyway, plus who uses them these days? Haha biggrin.gif

Plenty of room for cables around and beneath the cooler, you won't have a problem there.

Any more questions don't hesitate to ask thumb.gif

That's good to hear that's there's plenty of room for cables.

Unfortunately the optical bay is where I currently have my fan controller for my other fans. sadsmiley.gif

I really like that cooler though you think it would fit if I oriented the cooler a different direction if I have low profile RAM?

I do. That's where my reservoir/pump/fan controller/flow monitor thingy will go. http://www.frozencpu.com/products/18217/ex-res-472/Koolance_RP-1250_Reservoir_and_Pumps_in_525_Bay_-_Black.html

I think that might work! Check this out http://www.cowcotland.com/articles/1015-g/be-quiet-shadow-rock-topflow-sr1-le-top-flow-qui-rocks.html

Making me consider changing the orientation of mine if it fits, I thought their was no way it would fit like that next to the graphics card, it's tight though. I'm wondering if it would fit with the pipes next to the ram, then you would have enough room for a drive bay

Awesome, if you decide to do that could you post some pictures up so we can all see!

Also one last question, you can put the top panel on with that cooler right? tongue.gif

Thanks for answering all my questions about it.

I have it connected to the cpu fan header so yes i think its running @ full speed

Not my case, but the same annoying grinding sound!

I just got another h100i unit so i'll be trying that 2night.. if that fails i dont know, H90 in the front ??

But i wanted to share some photos with you

From the beginning i have always hated the top window (maby because i dont have the coolest looking rig inside) so i decided to put vinyl film over it, and here are the results

i LOVE it biggrin.gif

Alright thank you I think I'm going to get it, now I just need to find a place that sells it. I've never seen the Shadow Rock Topflow in any stores before.
