Thats a tight fit , the rad has very confined space . Id suggest putting at the rear if it can fit which looks like it doesnt it will hit the pump am i right ? maybe if u lost the shroud .. your blowing all the hot air onto ur hdd then throughout the case and the gfx card which has 2 fans underneath sucking up everybit of that hot air being pushed out by the rad.. Half of the pull fan is blocked off also which is no good.

You should put it at the rear , if it dont fit put the push fan on the outside .. By the look of it u have 2 top exhaust fans also . It would breathe much easier this way and save ur gfx card from suffocating . Can you screw a 120mm fan onto the rear ? looks like it wont fit up there actually . that case is tiny. I think its time for a custom job , dremel out the rear and get that rad up there man you will see the best results and keep all ur other components cool too .


Also your hoses look like there being pulled too hard in the 2nd pic.

nice though , just a few tips..the h50 is quite capable of alot but not in that setup . But if it works well for you then thats all that matters ..

Bad picture of my setup. Antec 2speed, 25mm shroud and fan that came with corsair. Been planning to switch fans to something better maybe nanoxia.

I disagree =D
This is of course assuming his HDD isn't sitting at 60c and his GPU is under 100c and he plans to overclock. I know that is a lot of assuming so I probably am making an ass of myself but I would think either removing the shroud to give the pull fan a little clearance(though this is debatable too and should be tested both ways to see)would achieve the same result in temperature drop that putting it at rear/top of the case would but putting it at top and rear might also give an increase to the temperature of the air that is being sucked into the push fan due to the GPU and PSU exhausts as well as it just sitting higher in the room, which, to me, is worse.
The hoses look fine and still have some slack as you can see in the first pic.
Maybe it is just me but I'm much more limited by my CPU temp than my HDD or GPU or Mobo temps and it has priority over pretty much everything when I'm thinking of how to configure my components...As long as there is ample exhaust for the air inside the case it's really not going to be much of a problem for your components to leave it the way it is.
But all that said, I do cringe a little to see the rad's exhaust fan dry humping that HDD...but I'm still going to give him a +rep for actually fitting all that in there without any case modifications(as far as I can tell).

Not really fond of the antec fans , they are too loud .. I have 5 of them in my case and it sounds like an aircon i have to switch them on med setting ..

You will get better results with better fans.

nice setup

Haha exactly , dry humping the hdd lol good one yeah i agree with what ur saying , either way he needs to clear up some room down there so it can push and pull air freely instead of blowing it all onto that hdd it just seems stupid really . But in a case like that do u have a choice ? why is the hdd cage there anyways ? can it be moved ? to underneath ur dvd drive ? just a thought..

Yeah i don t like antec fans either. Because they are too loud and those blue leds Definitely gonna get better fans.

That is a good idea. Drill out those rivets and remove the cage then move the hdd to one of the 5.25" bays. Takes care of the problem.

Edit: Plus then you can add an exhaust shroud for optimum performance xDDDD
