Triggs,
Nice work!
How much space is there from the inside-top of the case to the edge of the MB? I'm wondering how thick of a RAD/FAN combo can fit up there.

Thank you.

I have the EK RAD that is 47mm thick and I have 25mm fans attached to it. The remaining space I have is 34.9mm to the top of the motherboard.

Here is a closer pic.




Hope that helps

I removed the lower HDD cage to fit the 240 RAD. I cut out the side panel with a dremel for the 120mm fans and placed a bitspower RAD grill on the side panel to cover it up as you can see below. I just lined it up and marked the screw holes for the RAD grill then drilled away. I bolted the RAD grill to the side panel. The RAD and fans are inside the case.







In this picture below, I cut out a section of the case that sticks out to make it flat so I can fit the 240RAD behind the metal of the case and place 2 120mm fans on the other side and bolt them together through the inside of the case through the drilled holes.

Since the top of the fans is going through the case, I added the Anti-vibration silicon pads just on the lower half of the fan to even it out. Worked great.

Not sure if that made since, but here is the pic of the RAD by itself and one with the fans attached.



Ignore the cables as I have not cleaned them up or finished sleeving the new pumps yet.




And here is a pic of the RAD and Pump placement inside the case




Hope that helps

Thank you and good luck with your case, can't wait to see it.

This is also posted on my build log just now but posted here as well.

EVGA x58 SLI Board, i7 940 CPU OC'd to 3.69 and a EVGA 295 GPU are all in the same loop. I am sure if I pulled my GPU off the loop then I could get lower CPU temps, but I am happy with how it is running currently.

Here are some temps of my system, I have a i7 940 CPU OC'd down to 3.69 currently. Do not see a reason to put it at 4.0 although it is saved in my BIOS setting if wanting to raise it again.

Temp on Idle



Didn't have time to run it under full load for a long time, here is just 12 minutes using prime 95.




Here is a shot of when my system was on air and in my HAF922 Case.

Another thought, you could do dual 240's.
