Just thought i'd update on the above, finally got all my parts and assembled tonight. couldn't have been easier!

Both CPU and GPU are overclocked, CPU at 4.64Ghz and +100Mhz boost on the 1080, haven't pushed that any harder yet, it was the first setting i tried and it's fine so far.
Even benchmarking or stressing my CPU doesn't get over 63 and GPU doesn't get over 75!

There is quite a bit of room with the EVGA GTX 1080 Superclocked that i'm pretty sure the FTW would fit perfectly fine and am slightly regretting not getting it and taking a risk, don't quote me on that though.

Overall couldn't be happier!

Can anyone recommend a good AIO expandable cooler?

I would think any water cooler for the cpu you have (assuming it is the 4690S like you have said earlier) would work fine even with the stock fan.
In the end, whatever cooler you can find with any static pressure focused fan would be fine imo.

Thanks dude. Do you know if we have a list of coolers that would be a compatible fit for our beloved case?

What CPU and GPU are you running?

thanks a lot

I don't think there is a list per se, but from what I understand 120mm aio have nil issues but some 140mm do have clearance problems. Tube length seems to be the biggest (literally) puzzle, being the small case with cables routing them can be hard if they are stiff tubes

I've got a i5 6500 and g1 gaming r9 390 km my current system.

I have read through most of the thread now but i haven't seen anybody try to mount a fan on the outside of the front underneath the mesh panel? Can anyone give me the clearance behind the front panel mesh? I have ordered the SG13 in white but don't have it yet.

Thanks for that. I'm defo going to upgrade from my low-profile CPU fan to an AIO water cooled solution - just need to decide on which

There is next to no clearance. I was thinking the same thing before building mine.

Not even for a slim 120mm x 120mm x 10mm fan?

Quick and dirty measurement shows about 11mm of space.

Problem being if you choose to have the 120mmx10mm fan drawing air in through the mesh, it will be doing so with 25% of the fan's intake area blocked due to a center reinforcement piece for the front plastic. Also with a 1mm of clearance, it would be very noisy at any semi decent speed (above 500rpm) because of obstruction (this is true for most if not all fans)

If you opt for it to exhaust air through the mesh, the problem of noise is significantly reduced, however you are once again, fighting with 25% of the fan's surface area being blocked.
You also have to deal with a 2-3mm spacing between the fan and the radiator because the fan mount metal isn't fully flat
You also have loss of efficiency from the space above the fan, See this picture which was shown above. The large gap allows for the warm exhaust air to be recycled somewhat back into the case.

There will be improvements, depending on if it is push or pull. I'm just not sure the improvement is worth it. However please do try it and share with us your experience! wink.gif
