I've posted this a few times but here you go:

So some more bad news for me and anyone else in hopes for a Monsta above a RIVE. Short answer: NO it will not fit. Unfortunately the fan on the rad doesn't give enough space to plug in the 8pin cpu power in. I tried all routes I can think of with no luck. sadsmiley.gif

There is enough space on the bottom between the rad and the PSU IF you use the plugs on the top of the rad and not the side where fans are, BUT it won't work with the 240 rad in the front. So, in short, a MONSTA will work on the bottom without a 240 in the front. It will not work on top with either set of fans in push or pull.

Yes, it's a sad day.

Heres how it looks. Off by literally ~5mm.


Finally got to taking her apart. No luck on the mobo fitting though.



The UT60 + push/pull w/ regular 25mm fans is 110mm, the Monsta is 111mm with one set of fans (either push or pull). OverSightX said for the Rampage IV Extreme, you need about 5mm to clear the top cpu plug. Its a tight squeeze that's so far has been shown to be a no fit.

Push/pull will net you very little gain if you're already using some good fans (like the AP/SP). You can always go w/ the UT60 w/ push or pull (pull is said to have a slightly advantage) or go with a slimmer rad like the XT45 (45mm thick and w/ push/pull ~95mm). There are a few more brands out there that sell 45mm thick rads (like EK and Magicool).


Alternatively, the SR1 from Black Ice is 54mm thick and works great with medium to low rpm fans. With push/pull, you'll end up w/ 104mm which should give you that gap to clear the RIVE's cpu connector.

Some have suggested going w/ 20mm or 15mm thick fans (but they tend to have ok performance tbh).


My motherboard cleared the Monsta w/ push fans. The wire grill is pushed out a bit (original design of wire fan grills) so it barely kisses the top vrm heatsink). Other then changing your mb, I would recommend go w/ a single bank of fans if you want to stick w/ the UT60 or get a slimmer rad.

Not really happy with the way the two bay reservoirs are rigged up. Probably just going to keep one and sell the other.

Just curious, once you made the 115mm cuts, did you come back and sand another 5mm off all the way around, or did you just sand it smooth and leave it after that?

I'm looking at doing something pretty similar in the front of my 650d to replace the single 200mm. Also debating on using a piece of aluminum, or just acrylic.

The other thing I'm debating on is sticking with trying to air cooling or buying a h100i and putting it in the top.


Here's where my case is sitting now. Cut the horrible mesh out of the front (I only left some of the mesh so that the u-channel would have something flat to slide onto. Also bought a replacement front filter and modded it to fit in the 5.25 drive bays where I'll be putting a 120.

Once you drill the hole you must keep the saw in slow speed so you can get the rouf edge smoother a bit more after that sand it by hand using a rounded file or just roll a sand paper and kill the sharp edges. Just take your time cuz you only have one shot.
Ps: all my cut out was made on acrylic. On steel you must have a fine hole saw to get a smooth cut.

Some tricky you may want to know always keep a peace of wood under the acrylic or steel so the dril gruide strait down without moving out if the center it will make you hands stable to finish it and don't f#&$/ up the parts

Yeah I have a little experience with cutting/drilling acrylic. Was just curious if you left the holes at 115mm or sanded them out to 120mm.

Thanks for the tips though!


What are you guys' opinions.. should I stick with trying to blast this with air, and upgrade my heatsink to the noctua d14 update when that comes out, or should I just go with a h100i (with some sexy corsair fans with yellow rings to mach my motherboard and 680 lightning)? My specs are in sig. I was sitting at a stable 4.4 on my 3770k, but I would like to get to 4.6 at least.

I would opt going with the H100i and paint the rings to match your rig. You might want to preserve the white to have it as an option later, so prime/paint the blue or red. There's really good plastic spraypaint that bonds well with plastic too. It's just my personal opinion as i don't like the looks of Noctua fans at all as they ruin any color scheme you might have going on.
