Triple Rad & 3 HD Internal Case

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hey folks,

I have finally had it with my A900 LOL Dont get me wrong I've modded the case for wire mgmt and the such and it has insane air flow but its an absolute pita for w/c.

I need something that I dont have to spend 6 hours modding to accomodate a 3x120 (mcr320) rad inside that also has decent airtflow. Budget would be under $225 (cheaper is better )

Im tired of staring at my rad and listening to the drone of 7 - 120mm fans constantly LOL

Is there anything that will *just* work w/o pulling out the jigsaw and dremel?

Parts are listed in my sig for this rig + EK 400ml res

Hmm, triple rad with no modding, only a couple come to mind:

- Silverstone Temjin TJ07
- Mountain Mods UFO

There are a couple of other options that might work with some tweaks:

- Thermaltake Armor - I'm doing this right now and it will fit a triple rad in front with exactly enough room left for 1 optical drive. There is a 3 drive bay enclosure that mounts in the back by the power supply. However - if your power supply draws its air in from the top/bottom like most of the 120mm models do, the air flow will be blocked by the drive cage. This is the problem I am dealing with now - it can be avoided by getting a power supply with the fans on the sides. This is probably your most economical/convenient option, if you have the right kind of PSU.

- An original CM Stacker will hold a triple rad in front (as well as a double rad using the opening on the bottom). This will leave you 3 drive bays in the front to work with, and 1 of those holds the module with the power switch and USB ports. You could probably jerry rig the power switch to mount somewhere else and remove that module. Then you could fit 1 optical drive and 3 harddrives using a 3-in-2 module.

Wow - I hadn't seen the Cosmos S yet. If it will accomodate a triple rad internally, I might have to seriously consider switching.

cm690 can fit a triple rad on top with a little modding. and you'd have to move the usb/audio front ports somewhere else.. but it will fit

same thing goes for the Lian-Li A05B

TJ-07 is nice

Lian-Li V1000-2000 should hold them..

and Mountain modas should hold one easy..

Thermaltake Armor as suggested earlier. In my sig I have pics of how I did mine.

The original Cosmos would be good too. Take a look around maximum PC for their ultimate gaming rig, the used an internal 360 in a Cosmos, and provided a nice bit of pics.

The original cosmos you have two choices for, you can dremel out some extra space to screw the rad onto, or just lay the rad on top of the case where the shroud would be (what I do). With the latter, you only get two fans mind.
