Thank you very much DoctorNinja, yes i will need some luck because my situation due to country importation policies is a pain in the butt. All my hopes reside on Corsair support now, and George
now we are working with him who is being very helpful in order to solve my issue. I hope i get back and update with pictures of my new build using the pristine Obsidian 900D replacement i'm willing so hard to get.

Sometimes when you wish something so hard it becomes impossible? Why?. frown.gif damn i guess life is like that ) I want to be a part of this club!!!!!!!!!!!

I will keep you updated,

Regards

Decided to make panels to cover the rear vents on my 900D. I've been using gorilla tape, but looks terrible. The inside panel will be painted to match the motherboard and midplate. The outer panel will remain unpainted.

I really want to watercool in my 900D, but i'm so indecisive when it comes to radiators.

I want to run 2x 480 push/pull, but knowing my luck i won't be able to make them fit.

Was thinking push/pull bottom will definitely fit (except maybe one near the power supply, so will be 1xpush and 3xpush/pull

So it's either 480 monstas, or 480 UT's. I have 16 GT-15's sitting here ready to be push pulled haha

Any advice for someone looking to go down this route??

Got a RX 480 push and RX 360 push in mine and it cools everything I have very well. I don't think you can push/pull anything bigger in the 900d though. I haven't tried with mine on top but it appears I have too little room due to my mobo for push/pull and you can get away with it with one rad in the bottom unless you want to stack them.
post #8095 of 8568
The rad clearances must also take into account the power supply. For example in my case I have xspc high performance X 480 in the bottom(intake) opposite I intended to put a xspc 360 high performance when I measured it out it seemed it would fit. However i failed to account for the size of the rad with the shroud and the size of the new power supply i upgraded to (EVGA 1300). So with the new power supply I wasnt able to fit the 360 and the 480. So instead I purchased a 420 to place up top...so currently my 480 on bottom is push pull and the 420 at the top is in push pull as well. I set it up so the 480 first cools the graphics in sli, the mosfets and the 420 on top only cools the cpu. Glad to say CPU has not gone above 34 C and the graphics have not gone above 29 C. I may hook my 140 in the rear to give the water some more air time before it flows into the 420 every little bit helps.

I'm running 2 480 monstas in push pull. 15/16 fans. The one behind the psu won't fit. Space will be tight.

Ah cool, thanks for the comment!

I was worried about there being room at the top, and was looking at one of the koolance shrouds so i at least know it will fit regardless of what motherboard i have with a bit of modding. As i'm probably going to buy everything and go big on Skylake

I ideally want a quiet system too, so under 1500RPM fan speed too.. which means i "may" have to move away from the Monstas since being thicker = mean more airflow right?

Yea, Monstas are killer rads when used with high rpm fans. I use a fan controller to turn them down, and raise the rpm when gaming. I usually wear a headset or crank up the volume on the bookshelfs, so fan noise is never a problem.
post #8099 of 8568
It's a tough decision, especially since over here Radiators aren't exactly cheap compared to other countries.

Do you think Ut60 would be better suited for 1000-1500 rpm gentle typhoons? i'll have them all on a fan controller, just trying to weigh in if it's worth going that big if i want to cut out the sound.

Monstas actually perform best comparatively to other rads at low fan speeds in push-pull. If you are going to run high rpm fans then there are several thinner rads that outperform it. .
