how well does that bottom 120mm rad fit? i have been thinking about adding one to my loop when i add my 6870 to it, but im still debating whether i want to put it on the rear exhaust fan mounts or as a bottom intake worriedsmiley.gif

Fits fine with no problems what so ever(see attached photo without the case panel)-i even have enough space to add a shroud if i want, so that means that you could feasibly run the rad in a push/pull combo.
USB/Power on cables etc do not obstruct the installation either. Ive placed a 120 mm fan filter underneath the case since the fan is pulling air into the case, With regards to rear mounting, i tried that without hoses etc-just to see what it looked like, in my situation the rad + fan were sticking out too far into the case, and it looked messy. Imo, even if it had fitted without the aesthetic problems, i would not want a rad pulling in air in that position, nor would i want my rad expelling hot air (ie being used as an exhaust)

It also depends on your PSU, I find my cables are a bit tight and took a little more fine tuning to squeeze them into place. I have the Corsair HX1050 which is the same physical size as my previous HX750. You can also offset the mount position slightly further away from the PSU if you don't mind making a couple extra little holes in the bottom to relocate it more towards the front. All in all, it is a nice sneaky place to toss a single (or possibly a double if you yank the HDD cage and add another fan hole in the bottom).

thanks for the info, im using a relatively short psu, so i think i will go with the 120mm rad+fan in the adjacent bottom point. (and maybe do some case modding to fit a 240 once i get around to adding another 6870 in crossfire)... as far as cable clearance goes i havent had any problems to date. speaking of which i finally got around to re-cable managing my setup, so i guess i will post another batch of pics. i will also be posting pics when the uv cathodes and 2 fans get here... so that should be interesting. im happy to read any comments/suggestions you guys have for me as far as any changes i should make to the build go =D.

pre-management (aka where it was this morning) = 450

after management = 450 (not the best pic, essentially everything is tied down and managed excluding my sata cables... im not tying those down until i drill a small hole in the top of my case, run the fan power cables down through said hole, hook the fans and pump back up to my main psu, and put the right side panel back on XP)

after management left side view = 450 (again, not the best pic, but as you can see its pretty well cleaned up, at least i think... hopefully i will find some time to sleeve the rest of the cables and maybe drill some more management holes into the motherboard tray since i have the space, and then re manage it, i just havent done it yet rolleyes.gif )

some shots i like... the shade of purple is great biggrin.gif = 450 ... tons of little bubbles in my res that havent left yet XP

450 i couldnt find instructions on how to mount this on an AM3 setup... so i improvised. so far so good.

and last but not least a few shots of the rasa block and such,

450

450 (looking this pic over again makes me want to take some q tips to clean the smaller spaces with the specs of dust tongue.gif )

450

sorry for the loooooong post, i just spent a good 4 hours fiddling with the cable management and planning on where i will be putting the cathodes when i get here in 3 days. until then, i will find another stable OC. thanks in advance for any input any of you have to give (if you wish to give it thumb.gif )

Yeah, Castscythe, that's really wrong. Look at this: 450

@Castscythe, before i can offer you my 2 cents worth of advice (and thats all it will be, no critisism etc thumb.gif) can you verify that your case is a HAF 922, and your rad seems to be a XSPC RX 240, is that correct?

Has anyone ran copper tubing that was poished than painted gold? Possibly looking at doing that on my next build and would love to see pictures.

pm some pics when your done? The reason im looking for gold is im trying to match a color scheme of a motorcycle i saw a few years back and the gold tubing would be perfect.
