Trying to fit a custom single/dual rad loop in a Corsair 250D, advice needed - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Hi bro, I'm also building a 250D WC build Just wanna share something I think many user are wondering. What's the total clearance of the side 240mm rad? The answer would be 25mm(rad)+25mm(fan)
The reason I say this is because there a zip tie hold down that make the rad unstable unless u force the rad down. Here's a pic showing what I meant.

The rad I was using is Black Ice Pro 2. Or u can just remove that thing and u have a 50mm clearance ^^ as long u can find a thin fan. biggrin.gif
With the SP120, the Fan and Rad just fit in just nice.

Thanks a ton man. You mean that little nudge down there keeps the radiator from being pushed all the way down? Currently I have an H100i in there, and I have it mounted all the way down, but I do think I had to push it a bit. But the H100i is allegedly a 27mm thick rad, and I'm using 25mm fans, and I hardly have any clearance. The issue in part is that my mobo uses a VRM riser right on that side of the board:



So the fans have to clear it fully or be just up against it, otherwise it'll cause damage to the mobo, It can't be "above" the motherboard at all, makes it a bit tougher. I might just go with 20mm fans to be safe.

its a modded Cooler Master Sickle Flow. Basicly what you do is cut off all the top frame and leave the bottom area intact. Its time consuming but the end product is really awesome. smile.gif
