Many shops in Australia are selling them, hopefully they will soon come to Europe smile.gif

thumb.gif I saw these ones, nice fans! Do you think they can work well on/for radiators?

By the way, I don't like their look very much.. maybe, if the the central structure works just by passive diffusion, it could be dremel'ed away leaving only the outer ring, in that case I could consider them...

i agree with you ..

they are marketed as hybrid - sweet spot between static pressure (rad fans) and air (case fans).

Also Cooler Master UK said "We are aiming to launch the products during June"

would lke to see the final effect!

What is up guys I hope everyone's doing OK Havnt been in this thread in a long time. So right now I have the corsair 760T and I'm trying to figure out what I need to do to upgrade to a P5 but I'm trying to figure out my water cooling situation. Right now I have 2 EK predator 360s in my case one in the top and one on the bottom and I'm wondering what will fit on the P5 I know you could put one large radiator in the front is there any room for my two predators in the back of the case I don't want to let them just sit in a closet I paid good money for them and Id like to utilize them any ideas guys? Here's a picture of my case

I just bought my P5 and was doing a little research and came across this thread. Now I feel like I can't live up to these standards, lol.


I actually came to ask if anyone's fit a 580mm rad in this thing. I haven't looked at mine too closely yet to figure out if it could work.

Thanks! I'm sure you can come up with something even cooler.

Setting up the LCD readout took a few hours but was easier than I had imagined. There are some bits of help in the Aida64 forums and a video on youtube from a Korean modder that is translated into english.

The hardest part was opening the port through the router and windows firewall. I didn't have much experience with that kind of thing so it was not connecting initially.

There are lots of design options for the layout in the Aida64 software but I liked the bar graphs because I can read them easily from a distance. I can open and monitor it from any web browser connected to my network. It was helpful when stress testing my overclock because I didn't need to stick near the computer to monitor temps and for crashes, etc.

As for the 580mm rad, I do think it is possible, but it would overhang the top and bottom of the case. You would have to decide if you want to "risk" some of your piping being outside the protection of the plexy and caseback.

I don't have the rad yet, but basically do you think it would fit between the bars or interfere? Overhang wouldn't be a big deal I don't think. Eh I'll probably just buy the right size, just happened on a good deal for a 560mm.

This thread is very inspirational that's for sure. But it's also a bad influence on my wallet

Depending on how you mount the radiator, it's definitely doable. I was able to mount a 480 angled, but not after debating with myself about getting a 560, and I kind of regret not going with the bigger size now that I see that it would have definitely fit. I drilled some of my own holes for my mounts though, so if you don't mind that then you shouldn't have trouble.

Edit: yes, you will have some overhang either above or below but it will only be maybe 3 CM or less depending on how you line everything up.

Oh, duh, yea I could mount it like that instead. Didn't even think of that option. When you say it will fit, you mean only on the edge like that? How is that mounted (is there a bracket available or is that a DIY solution)?

There's several different types of brackets you can go with. I went with these two sets of these XSPC brackets, bought them on performance PCs: 120mm 140mm

I drilled two holes into the panel pretty high up on the case, so that the radiator would be even with the top.








Here's with just the radiator:





And here's with fans and radiator:





Some other users in here have used different ones though, if you read earlier threads you can find a couple posts where they used these Phobya Radiator Stands and cut out some parts of them/modified them to work on the case:

120.4 Phobya Stand (Couldn't find the 140.4, but I think I've seen it somewhere when I was researching earlier)

and it looks like Bitspower also makes some also:
