I think you would be able to fit an extra 5mm in there. I have 2x 120mm fans in there. They are 120 x 25mm and there is a little more breathing room thereafter. If you take some of the plastic grill off the top of the case I think you should be okay. I am about 90% on this. I will be putting the Corsar H100 cooling rad in the top soon. It is a 240 x 120 x 25mm. Case in point - i think there is enough room to fir another 5mm of space if the grill is removed. This would be an easy mod imo.thumb.gif

I used a dremel with the pencil extension. Took all of 5 minutes for the top, another five for the front. Came out quite clean.

the plastic seems to have 2-4mm, so I think it will do.

I'll try to measure exactly with help from friends, and get the case

Yea, like I said, if you cut the little plastic grill off, it's more likely to fit a rad. It absolutely won't happen with the grill in place though. I can tell you that. If you're mounting an H100 rad, it's a pretty thin rad, and it should work out. Any reason you want it up there? Most of us mount the rad on the top below, and then mount the fans above it in the grill area.

like this. Unless you're dead set on fans on the inside? Noise difference between the two configurations is minimal.

Also don't forget that you'll need to remove an area for the fittings.

the fans in the upper side would suffocate. The top mesh is too much restrictive, like in my ex 690 I, both on Intake or exhaust.

with the rad in the top and the fans inside, blowing upwards, I think I'll get lower resistance to the air.... and better aesthesics...
