RX360 and 560GTS in the bottom, and RX480 and RX240 up in the top. The 360 works perfectly next to my 200mm PSU. It's a tight fit, but works





If and when I need to do maintenance down there, I will make the flex tubing on the 560GTS longer than needed so that was I can just slide out the bracket.

When I ordered my 1300 G2, Tigerdirect sent me a $10 gift card to account for the price difference between them and newegg. So I decided to try out the bgears 140mm fan adapter for the rear exhaust. I already have an AF140, so I thought maybe I'll try and give it a shot. Looking at the piece, I'm hoping it will in the area knowing it's meant for 120's. Wish me some luck when I get home :S



Update*

I officially got my 140mm fan mounted in the rear of the SMA8. The space given on the SMA8 isn't enough for a 140mm fan, but with the flexibility of the adapter, it fits nice and snug (a little bent, but the fan works perfect).

Ideas? I have two passthroughs left, and I want to use them for the CPU, but also leave the top radiator stealthy with no tubing seen connected to it (all around the back).

what do you think about this setup?

I think that looks pretty good, Steezy. Its also the best MS paint job ive ever seen.

That looks good to me thumb.gif How are you going to route your tubing to the top rad?

I'm just coming up with so many ideas, and I'm trying with the least amount of tubing. Everytime I get an idea, I'm like "this ones it" and then I change it lol. But with that one I posted above, I think that's how I'll do it. I kind of like how it's going into the mobo tray.

I would route the tubing behind the mobo tray and underneath the midplate and around to the top rad.

I actually like the idea of more tubing being shown in the case. If your going for a clean look, then I would say go ahead with what you posted above.
