Just finished mine last night. I did mod the top to fit the fans under the top cover.

Nice build.. same mother board I used so yes you had the problem of how to get the motherboard watercooling done with a a rad and fans hanging down.. hope yours doesnt have haeart attack like mine did! nothing to do with watercooling.

Yea that bend from the radiator to the top VRM was tricky. I had to figure out that run with random white fittings from a previous build before I ordered new black ones. It was a real tight fit trying to get my hands on there to tighten all the fittings once I had figured it out.

I used a xflow radiator at the top, had it allot easier and gave me a straight run from MB. At the other end was a bit tight, but luckily I 90deg fitting from EK that swives so I could swing it to the side radiator. Hardest run I had was from GPU to CPU, that needed two 90deg bedns 35mm apart... fluked a extended twist turn that somehow turned out ok! Ithink I can only see the defect and will try it again when I get the new MB back in.

Just want to confirm that you have 360 rad up top and you were still able to fit the back fan in. Also, the mod to fit the fans above the rad, was it hard to fo? And what about how restrictive the top outlet is? Did it have any negative effects? Thanks.

The back fan fits fine. I'm actually going to take it out since it doesn't fit the colors of the build.

The top fan mod is IMHO a 5-6/10 in the "hard" scale as long as you have the correct tools. all you need is either a metal cutting wheel, ruler, some sort of writing tool to mark ( I used a pastel liquid chalk pen), and various levels of grit sandpaper. If you don't have these tools, you could use an electric dremel ( one that plugs in, not the battery operated one) and a handful of "decent" quality metal cutting wheels.

As for temps so far my GPUs hasn't changed from my last loop, synthetic benches and gaming it ranges from 40-45c, for the CPU in synthetic benches and gaming it hovers 50-55c. I'm currently playing Overwatch as I type and my GPUs are at 47/42c respectively and my CPU is at 40c, I've been playing for at least 2 hours now. So it's safe to say that the heat soak from the radiators has already set in and the temps are already where they would be at max.

Personally I do agree that the top fans are a tad bit restricted since there is probably less than 1 inch of space for the air to move out of the vents in the top panel but it doesn't seem to make a difference.

I didn't actually cut the top to get the fans in. I just removed the top of the case and inverted it on a flat surface and using a small hammer I flattened out the support bars sides that were protruding down. Manged to find in the corsair sp120's by holding them in with tape first then sliding in the radiator tray. I only had to fit two in however as I have a 240mm on top but I think you could do same with 360. Only cutting I needed to do was a small pice above the unused radiator inlets on the alphacool but you would not have that issue with some other rads with no reverse side ports. Also had to drill 4 hols in top cover so I could screw in the fans and rad on one side.

When i modded mine I didnt need to cut the top bars out in the end. I just remove the top of the case and hammered out the downward facing flaps of the top bars to fit the fans in. Fitted the fans in from the bottom and held them up with masking tape whilst I slid in the radiator support tray. Only had to cut too little sections out to accomodate the plugs from the top side of the radiator so it sitted flush up under the case. I am using SP120 Corsair fans but only a 240mm rad so maybe harder to use my method with a 360.

Had cocnerns of air draw aswell and unfortuantley couldnt test too much before I had my MB failure. Howver I have seen in other posts people using 3M soundproofing etc to seal the top chamber from the bottom. THis stops the top fans drawaing warm air in from around the outside of the radiator if it is the path of least resistance and means they can only draw in fresh air from the top vents. Will give it a try, may not make a difference but cant lose really.

I have 3 AP60s uptop without cutting the cross supports out. All I did was measure the lip that you hammered flat to the edge of where the 90 degree is and just cut it out. So it looks like I just cut the lip off of the panel after I was done.

Ok I see what you mean. Will clean it up with that mthod whilst I wat for new parts. Does the 360 top rad stop before or after the the fitting on the side radiator? i.e if I got a 360 top in the future would the tube run be possible with a crossd flow or will I need to run the same way you have from left side or case to right side of case ( trying to avoid horizontal runs as much as possible for looks..

The fitting will MOST likely not fit, unless you have a slim 240/280 in the front and even then it probably won't fit. The end of my 360 almost touches the front of the case and the top of the 280 is at least an inch within the end of that 360 rad, so the end of the 360 goes well past the top of the 280.

You'll most likely have to do it the same way as I did. If you look at my pictures, you can see the "EK" branding on the 360 above the 280.
