how big for a cpu cooler radiator can fir on the top of the v1 case?

Also is there really limit on air cpu cooling that can fit in my case? (disregarding ram etc.)

It's been awhile, but if I can recall, you'll have trouble fitting any radiator up there. One trick people were using it to mount the rad on the inside of the chassis, and get some thing fans, < 25mm thick, and mount them in between the chassis and the mesh panel on the top of the case. You can use 25mm thick fans if you mod the mesh to stick up about 1/8" compared to stock. I ended up removing the HDD cage and mounting a 240 radiator on the floor of the case, but that too required some modding. The first revision of this case is really not watercooling friendly unless you are prepared to mod. Your best bet I think is just getting a 120mm radiator in the rear 120mm fan mount, I think another 120mm can be mounted in the floor behind the drive cages without any modding. Keep in mind, this is all from memory, it's been quite awhile since I have had my hands on one of these cases.

That's a real nice cooler, I just hope it fits as well...I think you are very close to the maximum cooler height for this case. Your new cooler is 171mm tall, just checking to find actual maximum cooler height for your case...

EDIT - I am getting 176mm for max cooler height, so your new one should just fit, so great choice! thumb.gif

All I can say is in a 690 II you can barely fit an alphacool ST-30 240mm rad up top. Think i actually had to move the fan mounting holes a few mm.

I was looking for a nice mATX case (using Fractal Core 1000 now), but ended up buying a used CM690 for my older rig.
