I see that the rad you mention is 130mm wide so i wonder whether one of the ones i was looking at might fit without dremeling and cutting the case, as they are only 124mm eg
http://www.alphacool.com/shop/radiators/active-radiators/12341/alphacool-nexxxos-ut60-full-copper-120mm?c=20545
Or even this magicool which seems to be 120mm width in total:

Also found someone on the modzoo who fit a 280mm black ice radiator and seems just enough space to get it in after the headphone i/o ports :

http://themodzoo.com/2014/11/nzxt-s340/4/

Also the black ice radiator is one i was looking at anyway as i've heard good things about it!

If you are going PETG tubing, I'd recommend 45mm thickness or less on the rear, otherwise the bending might be a bit more challenging. I had an Alphacool Monsta 280mm in the front and an XSPC EX120 in the back, and (other than removing the cable bar to install this massive front rad) had no issues. I don't remember having any difficulty with the front I/O ports except to make sure the cables were tucked away properly.

The reason I say 45mm thickness on the rear rad (or less) is because if you look at the pipe from the GPU to the radiator, I'd have to change the bend drastically for something like a 60mm radiator, as I needed to leave clearance for the rear exhaust fan.

In your case an XSPC EX280 or Nemesis 280GTS would work well for the front. The Nemesis is a better performer and generally better (though costlier) radiator. And definitely no way to put the ports on the bottom unless you want to drill alternate fan mounting holes in the front panel.

Here's a link to that build post.

Sorry it's not a very well-lit shot, but you get the idea that it worked ok. I wouldn't go with a Monsta in the front ever again, because it needs push-pull high static pressure fans to achieve good cooling, which is way overkill for this case.
Ugly!

Awesome, thanks for the advice. On reflection I'm going to go for the Black Ice because it does have really good reviews and an extra £20 in the grand scheme of things...

Gone for the alpha cool 45mm at the back, you're right I measured and anything bigger would be too big. I also like the alpha cool because at 124mm width which means I can put it in first, and then put a fan pushing air through it which I'd prefer aesthetically.

Think I might have to mount a pump similarly to yours above the graphics card as my 980ti is 290mm doesn't leave me much space between the radiator.

Luckily I am getting an MSI Gaming 5 from eBay which means I should be able to mount it in the bottom pciex slot for more room.

What would be the best place to mount some sort of handle that is strong enough to support such a heavy case?

Or can anyone reccomend a better alternative for moving this thing up and down stairs and everywhere more easily.

S340 is not strong enough to handle that. biggrin.gif
If you plan to move constantly, then two options. A laptop or a mini ITX build using a mini ITX case.

Hey everyone, I am new over here at overclock.net and need some help choosing a radiator for my s340 build.
What would be better?
The nemesis gts240 x-flow (better for s340 build?) or nemesis 240 (better cooling than x-flow?) in front so you can have a drain port at the bottom.
Or the nemesis 280 with ports at the top and no drain port for better cooling.

Thanks in advance,
Nigthy

I originally had 4+4 tb wd blacks in der but now i've a 2tb tb black & 500gb seagate ..... 2tb wd is now 47degrees & seagate is 42 degrees
i cannot move my PSU & it is a moduler PSU rm850x ... & bout a fan in hdd caze ... der is not mounting hole in der ..i can try zip tie .. & dat would create sum vibration .......



It looks lyk dos r passive cooling vent ...... now only way passive cooling works is if der is a -ve pressure ...so if der is -ve air flow in d case air should come from d dust proof vent infront of d HDD CAGE



i donno wat was nzxt thinking ... dey made a such a beautiful case but missed a fan mount spot ..we can easily put a 80 mm fan in der if d cage was 2inch behind from front .... or even changing d hdd cage top vent direction's angle ......


I totally agreed with you. I recently bought this case to refresh the look of my old PC. I am having trouble with cooling for my 3.5" HDD. I was quite disappointed that the fan cannot extend all the way to the bottom to cover the HDD bay. Luckily I found a solution. I only use one fan for my CPU cooler Noctua NH-U9B and that fan is can fit in 3.5" bay. I screwed 2 PCI slot cover on it to and slot it in the 3.5" bay above the HDD, sucking air up. I also move the top mounted fan to the front so 2 IN 1 OUT to create positive pressure.




This is what's in the front, you can see the fan below the vent

but i guess dat mounting solution is bad..... coz hdd bay is made of steel .. & u mounted a fan in it .. so it'll create vibration & dats bad for a 3.5'' hdd

my solution was .. mounting a antec spot cool so it's not touching d hdd cage so no vibrations & its in pull config ...

Huh, isnt't that antec spot cool is touching the side of the hdd cage as well? I don't see any gap between the cage and your cooler from the picture that you've provided.

I may put some rubbery stuff around it to lessen the vibration, thanks for pointing that out though

On one hand I got an SSD and my case is very silent apart from the fans, on the other hand my 1TB HDD magically broke when I tried installing my SSD, so I lost all my files.
