Right now so is my only questions how many hard drives I can fit into it with that kind of setup and overall limits on size, as some of my combos can be a little tall (like 102mm rad+fan top combo).

I dont really see any issue with Rad size limits as far as thickness since there are tons of room.


but being that you seem to really want to run triple 480's that seems to be where the issue lies as that really is a massive setup and in reality a single 480 will adequately cool all of those components especially a thicker radiator.


But how you cool it is your option, I will try my best to help find a solution for your build once you get rolling.

I have already both all the parts, so I'm not changing my mind now.
Besides, I would rather have too much cooling then too little, as my current system is almost termal throtteling with stock speed.

But yeah, guess I cant do much more then wait at this point.

You thermal throttling with what cooling?

No, with stock air on GPU on 280mm rad on CPU.
My current case cant handle my new cooling setup, hence moving to core X9.

This little tab had to be snipped off for the PSU to sit flush against the back. NZXT has the plastic around the plug sticking out about 2mm past the metal of the PSU.
I think its designed for the fan to be down, so that might be the reason.

It wouldn't matter. There is the exact same tab on the flipped corner to deal with. Another issue I forgot to mention about the PSU; the rention bracket/bottom support cannot be installed in a place that the PSU touches the rubber feet. Maybe NZXT has an odd length.

Wow what OC are you running to overheat on a 280mm for CPU?

Please share which model PSU as I would be interested to check that out.

Is it possible to run a triple 480mm with a 240mm radiator mounted on the front panel? I'm looking at a future build and a reservoir costs about as much as an Alphacool radiator with a fill port so why not. This would mean that optimally the front radiator would be mounted with the barbs at the bottom and the radiator fill port at the top but I could fill the loop and then mount the radiator if they can't be mounted in this orientation.

Guys
Do you know where can i find a cheap drive bay only case?
What name should i search for?
(I need a case for the fan controller/s)

NZXT HALE90 V2

Built the loop, leak testing overnight, hopefully my motherboard will show up tomorrow, it is the only missing piece.

Fitting in a 240 in front would be no issue, you can actually fit a 360 in front
