I went to a local hardware store (Lowe's), and grabbed a nice looking one from their cabinet section lol. It fit right up to the case nicely, after I drill a couple mounting holes for it.

A quick pic from the rear


I was test fitting the 240 rad grill, and have since put two 120 fans underneath it, but you can still see the handle.


It's nice and small, unobtrusive, and yet I can still get my entire hand around it.

Change of plans (again)


Decided to cram my old 240mm radiator in the top, had to cut out a chunk of the rear of the case and my video card's PCI bracket in half, but it fit! It sticks out about as far as the power extension thingy for some reference.
Got two 120mm slim fans pushing air from the outside through it, that's why the screws look like they do, they're 30mm screws sticking out because I didn't have any shorter ones. The little green PCB sticking out the back is the power switch, didn't think that all the way through and it doesn't fit in the front anymore. Gonna pick up a switch and some shorter screws when I have time.

Yeah... for those reasons alone, that's why I haven't stuck a 240 in mine.

I don't mind it at all, really.
You hardly even notice it at first glance, and it's on the back of the case anyway.
Totally worth it, imo.

Yeah... I thought about it, but decided not to, seeing as how I have my handle right in the spot where I would need to cut, and I didn't want to have to de-solder the I/O connections on the GPU.

well im looking for ones that i can quick disconnect or absolutely un-intrusive and would accommodate my fan hole mod. local hardware store has limited selection and they are mostly crap as far as cabinet handles go


btw having a 240mm grill / rad / fan up top means you would have to sacrifice your top IO ports, i dont think i can live without the USB ports which is why i kinda stuck with a single 140mm fan up top

i would love to be able to cram 240mm worth of rad space in mine, so far i only managed a single 120mm that is cooling my i7 + 970

Hello there, Raijintek Metis Owners Club!

Guys I am about to buy this case & needed to know 10 things if you guys don't mind answering with confidence & experience.


1) Will the corsair H80i GT fit (the new one that came out)? I have seen a picture of this done before: http://www.modlabs.net/uploads/gallery/articles/Raijintek_Metis_%2825%29.jpg
The reason i am asking again is because i want 2 fans on it and not just 1 like the above link shows.
The reason why this is confusing is because the pipes are mounted onto the pump so i don't know if you can add another 25mm fan, it might touch the mounted pipes?

2) Can the following PSU fit: (it is not sff psu)
http://www.evga.com/Products/Product.aspx?pn=220-G2-0650-Y1

3) Can i fit 2 x 3.5" hdd's & 1 x ssd? Can I fit 1 3.5" at the bottom if I'm using a aio cooler push/pull config? I don't know how much space there is between the fan and the bottom of the case where the hdd is suppose to be installed so don't know if the thickness of a 3.5" can be adjusted below the rear fans/aio cooler fans.

4) What type of GPU should you get for this case? People say it restricts alot of air flow & i am NOT willing to do any mods.

5) Is this case loud in any way? Do PSU's get heated up and spin fast and make noise? I ask because i am scared it's like the evga hadron air case which sounds like a frekin rocket taking off even while surfing the web. I want the corsair h80i fans to not even spin & if they do then around 700-800rpm while surfing web because thats barely any noise.

6) What will my temps look like approx with a corsair h80i push/pull & a gigabyte gtx 970 mini? WITHOUT any mods to the case?

7) Is intake or exhaust in aio coolers within this case wielding lower temps?

8) With a atx psu mentioned above can i do a single 120mm fan mod at the top left of the case? as either intake or exhaust?

9) It says the max gpu length that would fit with a atx PSU is 170mm, my other choice apart from the gigabyte gtx 970 which is 168mm is the evga gtx 960 sc which is 173mm, do you think this one can fit aswell?

10) Where do i buy this case within Canada?

Thanks a-lot guys! smile.gif

Hey rpnp7... Let's go ahead and keep all questions concerning this case, or other topics, to the relating threads instead of to PM's. That way, other users can see the information as well. I'll go through all of your questions sequentially, and answer them the best that I can, but it will take me some time since there are quite a few. Also, every question you have asked below has already been asked in this thread. Just a helpful hint, in case you felt like going back and reading through some of the older posts. wink.gif

Yes, the H80i GT will fit, as per the picture that you linked. However, you will not be able to do a push/pull configuration with normal thickness fans. If you really want that fan setup, you'll need to get slim 120mm fans instead. There are quite a few different ones available, with numerous different colors, speeds, CFM ratings, and DB ratings as well, which you will need to take into consideration.

Yes, that PSU will fit, however if used, you will severely limit the options you have for GPU's since the unit is not a SFF one.

In short, no. This is especially true since you mention that you do not wish to do any modding to the case. The case is really only meant to hold one 3.5" drive, OR two 2.5" drives. However, if you use a 3.5" drive, you will not be able to use the H80i GT, or really, any AIO cooler because of how tall the drive would be.

This is going to come down to personal preference, like a lot of other things. It depends on what you plan on using the computer for, how much money you're willing to spend, and what sort of look you're after. Think about what you want, and do some more research into GPU's.

Well, for this question, you're in luck! The case itself is one of the quietest cases I have ever had... when it's sitting empty, without anything near it, it's absolutely silent! lol all joking aside, the case itself it not what makes noise, it's the components inside that do. Because there are almost limitless combinations of setups and components that you can put in the case, overall noise levels will vary greatly. Another thing that will vary, is what you personally consider loud. One persons perception of "loud" will differ from another persons.

This is yet another question that will have varied answers, and will need more research on your end. You didn't mention what CPU you plan on going with, if you plan on overclocking it, or the GPU, which PSU you're going with (a full sized one will block more airflow around the case), which fans you choose, where does your case sit in relation to any heating sources in your house/apartment/room....

Using your fans for intake, especially in a push/pull setup on watercooling, will almost always yield a better temperature. You will usually want to stick with positive case pressure in general, but that's a different topic, for another thread. Luckily all sorts of information on that topic is available on this website.

I thought you didn't want to do any mods to the case? Also, I'm not sure which part of the case you're calling the top left, but I assume it's the section that is above the PSU, where the USB/ audio jacks are. The answer to this question is going to vary on a few things, such as, if you plan on using a slim 120mm fan, if you REALLY want to mod the case, and more...

This I'm not sure of, as I have not used a full sized PSU, or a short GPU in my case. Going by the specified dimensions alone, it will not work.

If you absolutely have to buy from a Canadian retailer, I'm sure there are numerous links to one on Google. If you plan on broadening your search a little bit, and don't mind perhaps waiting a couple more days for shipping, Google still has your back.

You're welcome. As mentioned above, pretty much every question that you have asked, or some iteration of it, has been asked before in this thread. Feel free to take a look back at some of the earlier posts, build pictures, and general information online, and I'm sure you'll come across all sorts of topics concerning this case!

Happy building!

Thanks for all the information.
The corsair h80i (not GT) will fit with push/pull with the 3.5" hdd on top of the case where it suppose to go (in the bracket) correct?
http://www.play3r.net/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/Raijintek-Metis_81.jpg

The cable management in that picture isn't great but it gets the work done.
I would put 1 x 3.5" hd at the top.
Obvisouly with this push/pull config, the room from the bottom of the fan to the bottom of the case can probably fit only a ssd.

Are there any VERTICAL 3.5" hdd mounts/brackets available? i can mount it in between my psu and the aio cooler as there is lots of room for it vertically but not horizontally.
I did a-lot of resarch to find such a bracket to mount vertically 3.5" hdd but couldn't find 1 yet.

Also if i am using my aio cooler as a intake should i be adding a filter to the rear intake/exhaust grilled area?

I don't think I've actually seen anyone keep the top hard drive bracket. If used, it will block some of the airflow of the GPU, but yes, it could be used just fine. How the coolant tubes mount to the CPU block/ pump makes all the difference in the world. The GT variant of the H80 is quite a bit different than the non GT one.

Yes, with an AOI cooler, you can still have two 2.5" drives in the bottom of the case. That's how I have mine set up.

You would likely need to make something custom for what you want. If you stuck with a SFF PSU, and 2.5" drives, you could mount them vertically, in between the inside of the front panel, and the side of the PSU. While I only have an SSD and a 2.5" laptop hard drive in my case, there is still room for more drives in that location, though they would be mounted in a custom manner.

That's up to you. It depends on how much dust in is your room, and how often you open the case up to clean it. I personally clean the inside of mine, along with all of the fans, semi-often. I also don't use a mesh grill though...
