If you need help with drilling and tapping PM me - or on forum, either way - be glad to walk you through it. But yeah it's more hassle than just setting it on something that rolls nice.

Thanks again, the Lanboard arrived in the mail this morning, I'll play around with it tonight. smile.gif

*snip*

Check out the build log to see the rest. I've got some pretty nice things waiting in the mail.

Both your builds look great! thumb.gif

Also, I've decided to pull the trigger on watercooling. I want to get the Rasa RX360 kit, has anyone mounted one of these on top with push-pull? I know someone said that there is about 110mm of space, and I can do some measurements when I get home tonight, but I'm also seeing discrepancies in the RX360 rad measurements. The FrozenCPU website says 56mm rad thickness, while the Rasa club says 63mm. I suppose if its too thick I just get slimmer fans though.

And lastly, to whoever said they have a second mounting bracket for a 320 rad, please send me a PM. I looked through all my stuff and I can't find it, and looking at the picture of the case on Newegg, it doesn't look like it was included. redface.gif

If the RX is 56mm it will fit with Push-Pull 25mm fans, not if it's 63mm. I would just use pull / push with 25mm / 38mm fans if it is is 63mm. A rad this thick needs a lot of pressure to perform good, and you wont get good pressure with a slim 15mm fan, even if you have Push-Pull. Go for something like a GT-15 or in that area and you are good, its only the High FPI rads like the HW-Labs GTX that you see shine with Push-Pull others on others it will just be a couple of C difference.

I did some more research and it looks like the difference between push-pull and just push on the RX360 rad is minimal. Also, according to the XSPC website the rad is 63mm, so I'll just plan on push-only then. smile.gif

Yep, like i said, it's only rads like Hw-Labs GTX that will really benefit from Push-Pull or high speed fans. Go push with some good fans and you should be fine.

I've got the Lanboard set up and I've got to say that I like it a lot!

It seemed kind of flimsy at first, but once I had the case on it, the weight distributed pretty well and it doesn't give any flex when I roll it around, and it rolls nice and easy on my floor.

To work around the PSU, I simply unscrewed the back to case feet and positioned them on the back of the Lanboard and set the case down on top of them. So the front two feet of the case sit on the front half of the board. Not really secure, as the back ones aren't screw in, but it gives the same clearance above the bottom fan vent as it does on the floor. In a day or two I'll buy a couple nuts and bolts and screw the feet in in front of the PSU and it'll be set.

Great! It's not like you will be rolling this thing around very often. You might see if CM has any extra feet as parts, and then you could leave the rear feet in place in case you ever have the case out on the floor or bench for service. You'll notice that the feet (front and rear) are screwed into a thick plate that also stiffens the case. In front of the PSU it's just thin case material. So option A) if you have a good spot to drill the holes, when you buy the screws and nuts also buy appropriate size "fender washers." The are made to use when you fasten through sheet metal (like a car fender) to spread the load and avoid stressing the sheet metal; option B) use some silicone caulking (you can buy a small tube if you don't have some already) to adhere the feet to the case... no holes to drill and they can be removed later on if necessary. Editing here... I should have added you would just want a thin film of silicone caulk so you don't change the height of the feet and so they are even.

Enjoy it!

Hey guys - I just moved into a Lian Li A70F and no longer have use for my 840. The chassis and side panels are being scrapped, but if you want / need a front panel, 5.25" bay covers, the main front shroud, drive caddies, hardware, a mobo tray, or (if I can remove it) the front top cover and media interface, I have it and am willing to sell for a few bucks if you cover shipping. Just PM me.

Hi guys, I'd like to know how much thick could be a radiator to install in the top of the case.

I'm thinking to buy a EK-KIT H3O 360 HFX, and I read that "[RAD XTX 360] it's thick 64mm, so please make sure you computer chassis can accomodate it".
In fact the old [RAD XT 360 radiator is "only" 47mm.

Does it fit or not?!
Thanks!

On the top you should have about 110mm of space. So 64mm will have room for Push or Pull, but no Push-Pull.

That is down to the support that supports the back of the motherboard tray, down to the top of the motherboard there should be around 115mm or so so if you remove the support you should have room for 64mm rad + Push-Pull. (Not sure how this effects the "rigidly" of the motherboard tray.
