Also, could you feed the PSU in the BH7 with the two 80mm fans? Or will it be starved for air due to the tight fit?

ThermalBench reviewed the 120mm and 140mm,and they have a wide variety of lovely comparison graphs too ^_^

It looks like matx bh4 iS 1" smaller height than the full ATX bh7, Or thats a really big air cooler. The other case build log said The ultra wide GPU's like asus strix wouldn't fit with water cooling
More panic, 1st gpu length, now gpu width, a lot of mine is bigger than yours in reverse

Wow, this is a pretty good review, thanks. I just ordered one to test. He comments on the sound profile a little in the comments, which is arguably as important to me.
Now what about using the ML140 on the NH-C14s? Is there a recommended rubber cushion or strip of 3m clear rubber (I know Noctua sometimes includes these in their kits).

Well no one responded to to my dual lock suggestion but thought I would do a follow through any ways. Got the the low profile dual lock Velcro, it is awesome 3M went all out, as good as there thermal tape, the white stuff. Both pieces together are no thicker than a magnetic strip, perfect for bottom PSU fan. You can pull it off with no problem can stick it back with no problem, light stick enough, where it wont destroy a Deci filter. Outright wicked! Probably good to about 2lbs. Square Inch, Peals off like, Pealing a Bananna. But seriously sticks, So cool

Here's a picture no bigger than a pin on the fan header for reference.

Hmm, I'd honestly prefer velcro, especially for the PSU filter. Maybe I'll give this one a try. Thanks.
post #1968 of 2685
It destroys Velcro, for the purpose of air filter, solid surface. Clothing or wrapped around angles Velcro maybe better, A solid mount no lateral movement like Velcro, like 1/4 to 1/3 of the size. I was thinking magnet but wait the case is aluminum that wont work, I think it got some other people too. Every case previously there's steel at the psu, or comes with a filter attachment. I dont want to use velcro NO No No no way. Looked at other options Lian LI had a nice one for 15.00 but thats it, nothing else. the dual lock comes in 20ft 10 ft per side at 15.00 dollars and you can make all you filters match. Could make a bracket, but the bottom is so perfect and flush, rivets or some bulky system yuk.
Accessing the bottom portion may not be the easiest, for the dust lovers some thing to consider
cut thin strips seal bottom psu, no thicker than using a adhesive backed magnet, then have 9ft to use on other contraptions

Im just happy, got a dog and a cat, bad carpet, makes for every thing that will destroy your psu or any other componet
If I kicked out the dog and the cat it would be mutiny
The carpets got to go, waiting for the energy and time, money etc etc for hard wood floors

I ordered a BH7 in Gunmetal this week and am trying to determine cooling options. I will be installing a lightly overclocked 6700K on an EVGA Classified K and an EVGA 1080 FTW (will likely go to 2-way SLI soon). I have a Corsair H100i V2 but am worried the tubing is too long and stiff for a clean install.

I am very interested in the EK Predator 240 for CPU cooling only and would use the stock air cooler on the 1080 FTW(s). I scanned this entire thread and it looks like the consensus on the Predator 240 is that it will fit in a BH7 (tightly) with front mounted 120x25 fans if the fittings are switched to 90's or 45's. Before I spend $250 on a Predator and fittings I wanted to confirm that is the case. Does anyone have pictures of a Predator mounted in a BH7 in this manner?

Or, I can just use a Dark Rock TF. I'm running one right now and it does interfere with the first memory slot on the EVGA board so am not sure I want to stick with it long term. Too bad - it's a nice air cooler.

Thanks!!
