750D raditator position help.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I just bought a 750d, but it seems my 60mm thick rad wont fit with any fans on it, up top. And the front would require me to cut the drive bays, and half of the top fan would be covered.

My idea is to use one of the Koolance fan shrouds, would give the case a very clean and completed look if done correctly. My problem is the 120x3 is thin and wouldn't cover the entire vented top, would see small gaps on the sides, and large open portions on the front. The 120x4 would have the same indents on the side, but would span from the rear of the case to the very front, an inch over the plastic and would be a small gap there as the front of the 750d tapers down a slight bit.

Option 1: Cut bottom of optical bay, place radiator and fins here, all fans will have good flow except for 1-2" on the top fan as shown in the green. This would allow for the proper fitting 3x140 koolance shroud at the top, with a proper 3x14 rad.


Option 2: Use 3x120mm shroud at the top, would allow all fans optimal flow, slight gaps on the side, a large gap at the front. Could fit a piece of black abs plastic and maybe mount switches or something? Would allow the front for a 3x120 in the future or 2x140


Option 3: Use 4x120mm shroud at the top, would allow all fans optimal flow, slight gaps on the side, would go over the front onto the plastic and leave a small gap between the top of the plastic and the bottom of the shroud. I thought of maybe using a fan blank on the last fan opening for switches, usb? Could put a 4th fan but half of it would be covered anyhow. Would allow the front for a 3x120 in the future or 2x140



Really at a loss here, any suggestions/thoughts? My main concern is making the optimal choice that will allow the best configuration in the future for more radiator.

You could fit a 360/60mm rad in the top with a set of fans,but you would have to offset the rad closer to the windowed side panel....

Or like mentioned above you could go with 420 rads on top,which could reguire a little modding,see info in the corsair 750D club about mounting options and mods....

Check the front page for a how to fit a 420 rad depending on thickness....

140x3 rads are massive and a real pain in the A$$.

I cut the top portion out of my cages in my test rig in the same manner you are currently researching...works fine, you just loose 1 bay.
