Anyway, I have so many spare monitors after moving away from my eyefinity to a large format 4K, I have been pondering doing a window mod with one of them.

Thoughts?

Ok fans are in. I know there are better fans out there but corsair makes it easy to pick the right ones. I am happy as they are quiet. Now i have to work on wires and just a little more light. Whatca think?

Is it possible to use the 5.25 securing screw holes on the front panel to mount a 180mm fan? they seem to line up quite close to the correct area and the second 180mm fan slot is slotted which suggests to me a potential ability to lower the second fan. I'm thinking of throwing a 360 in the front of the case alongside the top two 480mm radiators. It should be possible based on the screw slot dimensions and the dimensions of the case to run a 30mm 120mm based 360 with thin radiators in the top.I'm curious if a 180mm based 360 radiator would bit in the front as they seem to sit higher than the 120mm radiators if you have to use the absolute top fan screw hole.

The other issue is the thickness of the radiator. Can anyone with 480's in the top with the barbs at the back measure the distance from the fan to the front of the case? It should definitely be possible to use a 30mm in the front but a 45mm would be better. I'm almost certain that the 45mm thick 360mm would clash with the top radiators. Naturally all of these suppositions are based on push for the front and top radiators with no space for pull. I should be getting my case in a fortnight and building my loop over the next month if anyone is curious about this setup.

Geez!! How much cooling you want? Your making me want to use my Coolgate 360, swiftech 360 and swiftech 240! Lol. Maybe even through my black ice xtreme gtx 480 in there passive, lmao

Lmao, why not. I'm going to mount the psu in the center so that I can throw in four 480mm radiators, just trying to find a way to throw a 360 in there too. A 180mm based 360 would be best since it would effectively mean having 5 480mm radiators in it biggrin.gif

I'm fine w/ three Monsta 480mm rads biggrin.gif. Just placed an order for a little mod I have in store for the X9 to give me more cooling powah. This is such a great little case to stuff w/ rads! Can't wait to get my hands on it. Just waiting for this mod parts to ship out and newegg to give deals again for the case. i always do super saver and if it ships from their socal warehouse, I get it the next day! But cali tax sucks btw frown.gif

I'm measuing about 40mm of free space infront of the radiator, depending on the mounting holes.
That is with the barbs infront.

Thanks for your help Chiobe. Is that from the edge of the fan or the edge of the radiator?

From the edge of the radiator, you can add about another 20mm, if you measure to the fan.

Awesome, there's more room than I thought for it. It'll be a couple of weeks before I get started on my build but if any of you are interested I'll post it up here. Here's the current build wishlist if anyone has any thoughts.
