Have you not been happy with the XSCP Rads? Was about to order those myself. Seem like the 240 rads will give me room to keep fans in front and back of unit, if i mount one on power supply side roof. Cant wait to get Node here to figure out where to install pump and rads.

Until last night (disassembled the rig in anticipation of rebuilding), I was running a 240 up top and a 240 cross-flow in the front, and my temps on a 4670k and gtx 780 at stock never went higher than 40C (granted, I wasn't doing much other than playing League of Legends, and occasionally BF4). I love the performance of the XSPC rads - the finish feels a bit low quality. but that's superficial.

I intended to replace them with HWL rads simply to try something new, but now that you've mentioned the spacing issues, I've reconsidered: the financially sensible option is to simply buy another two XSPC rads and discard the crossflow rad, rather than discard both rads and buy another 3 HWL rads.

I'm very excited about the Node804 - going to see if I can somehow squeeze a 240 in the top and front position on the PSU side!

There are a few 12mm and 15mm thick fans on the market. That might be worth looking at as well.

Yes, I believe there's a very thin one (15mm I think) from Scythe which I'll be considering if my Gentle Typhoons don't fit with the 30mm rads I'll end up using.

You probably mean the slip stream slim series of fans. I had a couple of those in my SG03 build and the CFM / noise ratio was pretty bad. Before you jump onto that train I'd highly suggest some more measuring, head scratching and asking mrs. Dremel and her offspring if there's some way to avoid those. smile.gif

This. I also had a few Slip Stream Slim fans and they pretty bad as radiator fans. They don't have very high static pressure and start to get loud around 1600RPM. I think Gelid makes a slim fan and Phobya as well. Those might be worth looking into if a slim fan is needed

Good luck finding one for sale anywhere anymore though.

I think im going to just use one in push/pull on PSU side. But reverse the rear fan and push out top and front. In MB side in front in Push. I think it might get tough to try to run the tubes if Rads are both in the PSU side. I'll see when the case arrives this coming week. After reading about the thinner fans, they do not get good rating, i am just going to use the fans that come with case for PSU side Rads and get some Emermax with Red LEDs for MB side. Going all Black and Red setup. (MB, Fans, Blocks, Tubing, Everything Red or Black) Ordered a New ROG board to put in. We should start a Node 804 Thread.

I think I've come to a conclusion: XSPC rads and Scythe GT AP14s, since I already own 1/3 rads and 5/6 fans (bought the 6th on Ebay just now). If I can't get a good fit just from drilling new holes, I'll just have to try my hand at fabricating a new panel - I'm going to be completely taking the case apart for painting anyway, so there's no harm in making my own panel and trying it for fit. If worst comes to worst, I'll just end up using a very thick rad in the PSU section and running a total of 480mm rad space. Thanks for the help everyone! Keep an eye out for a Node 804 build log in the near future!

Oh yes, it'll happen - would be useful to have input on the build from people that are also working with the case!

So, apparently you and I are in the same boat... I was just asking around about finding a slim rad to go up top of my Corsair 550D in the Water Cooling Club. Originally I had wanted to an Alphacool ST30 but realized that it won't fit with my AP-15s. I'd prefer to keep those fans. The only rad that I could find was an X-Flow Black Ice rad at 25mm and I don't want X-Flow. I had contacted Corsair about radiator size and they said that it can accommodate a 27mm thick rad with 25mm fans. Funny enough, those specs match the exact specs of a Corsair H100i... Have you made it any further on your quest?
