I thought about getting this as well but I saw some pictures of it. It looks extremely thick. I don't think it will clear the panel. Hopefully someone gets this and tries it

It would indeed have to fit through one of the grommets if you want the chamber separation. There are other ways, naturally. Here is a snap of my ghetto-mod.

I wanted to switch back to my Air 240, but realized my EK Predator's Rad + Res + Pump unit wouldn't fit. With a bit of imagination I ended up with this monstrosity. biggrin.gif

You should have bought an air 540. That thing is ridiculous.

Believe me, I know XD. The thing is I already had this case lying around from a past build. I'll keep this beast running until I find an mATX case worth upgrading to

Any chance of it fitting at the bottom of the case then rotating the case on the side so that it fits the correct EK orientation for the pump to not fail? I also have an air 240 and a spare EK predator. Haven't got the chance to try this yet

The reason I did not go that route is that it would run into my wireless PCIE card. It could also interfere with USB/audio headers and misc. front panel connectors. Give it a shot and do a test fit though! These sorts of issues vary between mobos

So I didn't realize GPU width would be a problem before I bought this -

I have a GTX 1060 Gigabyte windforce in here and to get the side on I literally have to mash the connections from the PCI-E cable onto the card, thus putting pressure on the card, the motherboard and strain on the cables to the GPU.

I don't feel really comfortable keeping it like that, are there any suggestions from anyone here that they can recommend to me so I don't have to either 1. Get a new case or 2. Get a new GPU?

Is there a thinner cable? Something like the EVGA power link that is wicked thin?

I have a Corsair RM650x if anyone is familiar with their cables

Ah, I have an ITX case. I may give it a try to see if it works.
