Open case, I need advice please!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I already bought this case: http://www.aerocool.us/strikex/strikex_air.html (Aerocool X Strike air)
I also have a MSI X99A Godlike Gaming with a i7 5820k, and a GTX 980 that I want to fit in.
Tomorrow I need to order the ram memory and cooling. I cannot find any clear answers regarding on what type of water cool for CPU that can fit inside this case frown.gif
I am opting from: Corsair H110i GT, NZXT Kraken X61 or Swiftech H240-X. Do you guys think that any of those coolers would fit? Or be able to "make" it fit?

Thank you!

I don't see why you would have any clearance issues for water blocks or big air coolers.

As far as mounting rads for Closed Loop, All-In-Ones, or even custom loop, I don't see any specified mounting positions on the product page. That top panel for the 20cm fan ****may**** support the weight of a rad and fans as is. I'd prop up the front of it rather than let those hinges hold all the weight.

You may be forced to just let your rads chill on the desk next to the case (which isn't uncommon for bench/test stations). frown.gif

Edit: You could always utilize a rad box to keep things orderly... doh.gif
