post #81 of 2022
Hey guys, I recently built a low budget gaming PC and I am starting to upgrade my parts. I've been needing a new case and have been seriously considering the Lancool K-62. Great Price + plenty of space for my budget. Im looking to go with an i7 for my newest build and would like to watercool but was discourage buy a few reviews saying that this the K-62 isn't designed well for mounting in the back. Looking at the case further, would it be possible to slip a radiator such as the Danger Den 280 Stealth radiator in place of the dual 140mm fans on top, then mount the fans below it, exhausting out? Small case mods may be necessary, but are do able. I havent been able to find this case in stores and don't want to buy a case that doesn't fit my needs. In any case, to determine the internal measurements of the top cover. Anyone who could provide them for me would be very much appreciated. I anticipate this to be the best place for an accurate response and I would love to buy this case. Thanks in advance!

Hey mate,

Im just going to refer you to one of my earlier posts.

I can give you exact measurements of the top cover if ya really want to cut the top of your case.

Few things to think about as well: this case is steel (with exception to the top/front plastic covering), so any cutting will require a high quality drill bit.
I would personally try to cut out the top cover plastic and sit a rad on top of the 2x 140mm fans.

I think there's enough room between the top of the motherboard and the fans that you could mount them below the rad. That would be a cool mod if it works.

I have a buddy of mine who owns a car shop and can help me out with drilling etc. so its not a problem there. Ive seen a lot of detailed pictures of the top part underneath the plastic cover (as in how the fans attach and the top cover pops off etc.) All i need is the length of the internal plastic cover and the depth. The Rad I have been looking at (http://www.dangerden.com/store/black...alth.html#tabs) is over 31mm thick so I am hoping that the top cover is about 32mm deep. The typical size of those cases fans is about 25mm so that why I am trying to get all the detailed info I can because this case has great/price/quality/ all black color which i love, but none of that matters if it doesnt fit my purpose =( I am fairly hell bent on this case, haha, and would hate to ruin the plastic cover; does anybody know a thinner radiator?

Referring to ned99--- Fitting the two fans underneath the radiator, still exhausting out the top, is my plan IF the cover is deep enough for the radiator. A completely internal water cooling system is my goal.

howdy, I don't have anything to measure in mm just inches but here's what I come up with for the top.

Just bought mines a few days back, all built and everything. But since the Power LED is a 3 pin and I don't have a damn 3 pin slot for it, it has to go unplugged lol.

Thanks a lot Kev B! So the measurements of the radiator are 6.02" Wide, 12.44" Long, and 1.23" Thick. Everything seems do able. The cover depth should be sufficient but now I am worried about the width.of the radiator. Is 6.02" inches too wide? Could I get one final measurement of the length between the stands at the edge of the grill. (as seen in kev b's 2nd photo posted above)

Welcome to the thread mate!! Cant wait to see some pics of your setup!!

Are you sure your mobo doesnt have an Power LED 3 pin next to/near all your other front panel inputs? Thats what I found with my silly mobo.

howdy if you can find another way to attach the top to the case that radiator could work, removing the 4 posts that hold the top down would give you enough width.
