Please double check but there should be 360mm between the bottom sections of the top supports. Dropping down below this and you should get about 365 between the top guide rails of the sides. You should be able to get about 375-380mm if you go down below the guide rails with two ventilated side panels, less with a windowed one.

I'd set the phobya to either pull or push/pull with the three fans between the supports to drop the radiator down lower to give it enough room. That would only work if the fans were tight together on the radiator though and it would only be supported by the middle row of fans. Otherwise you'd have to use longer screws to drop the radiator down far enough to clear the sides.

Rad is 365mm (according to phobya, both nova and extreme) x 390mm. The width part, you're barely going to clear. You're gonna have to position the rad slightly lower to clear the door panel edges. They have these guide rails that position the panel door on the sides. I'm guesstimating here w/ my tape measure, but the rad will need to sit about 30-35mm from the top of the frame. If you put 25mm or 38mm or 25+shroud/fan-shroud, you can clear this. The only issue i see is the bracket. You'll need to find a custom rad mount or diy to get the 1080 on top. There's a few universal radiator brackets out there that might do the trick. I've gone down this route to custom mount rads in the past. With a little creativity and some simple materials and tools, you can pull it off. Lengthwise, you're in the clear as 390mm is short enough vs a 520mm long Monsta 480. Once you've cleared this, then you have about ~370mm from the inside to the other inside of the door panels.


Tbh, if you can't figure this out, I would seriously consider other options. if you must have the Nova, maybe go external or pick up a different case. If you wanna stick w/ the X9, get some traditional 120mm rads (or 140s!).

He may not need to have a custom bracket. You can move one of the top fan mounts into the very center of the case. The radiator would only be supported by the center three fans though which may not be strong enough.

^^^You'll need some spacers, or dead-fan housings, or 38mm fans as you need about 35mm to clear the top/panels/panel-rail/guide. If he's got the Nova and with a bit of extra securing, you can pull it off tbh thumb.gif.

Sorry guys, didn't wanna seem like i ignored your posts redface.gif. I always believe to at least acknowledge any response to my posts in some way or another. It is stuffed like a turkey on tnx-giving day tongue.gif. I have no more room for stuff. The only upgrade I may see down the road is probably a second, larger ssd (512 or 1tb). I'm not happy with the current ssd setup but that is totally my fault for forgetting to stick in the slot bracket when i had the chance. Just got carried away putting things back together quickly as the wife was giving me the stink-eye look redface.gif. Thanks for the kind words thumbsupsmiley.png:

Guys how do you mount radiators on their side in the bottom part of the x9? Do you need an optional bracket?

You use the mounts that the hard drive cages sit on. You attach the mounts to the side of the case, not sure how to mount it exactly.

this, the bases act as radiator brackets. They work both on the side and bottom. The side takes a bit of head-scratching to figure out but it fits as it should and bolts on easily.

Thanks a lot lads.

Doing a tri-sli 780 TI Classy build in one at the moment. Loving the case for watercooling so far. Will post some pics soon.
