Alright, so I just bought the H50 last weekend at Best Buy for $40...and to me, that's just a huge steal at that price.



However!.... I need a new case. I had a fun time trying to get the radiator installed in my current case and ventilation is a huge issue now. I am pretty stubborn on getting a mid-tower case as I have no real reason to get a full tower (I don't put a lot of stuff inside).

I have been eyeballing the CM 690 II. It seems to have a ton of airflow and I can finally pull off some cable management.


How well does the H50 fit in that case? Is there any jerry-rigging that needs to be done to make things work?

The CM 690 and 690 II cases are excellent. The H50 fits with no issues into my 690 so you wont have any probs with a 690 II.

It might depends on where you decide to mount it. In my case, the CM690II advanced, I was trying to mount it in the rear, but there was barely enough room for a push/pull setup. It was basically pushing on the pump itself. I don't know if different motherboards have different placements of the CPU, but for mine, it ran into that problem. For when tried to mount it right above the pump, there was just enough room for the corsair fan. For the other top fan location, the RAM gets in the way. If you have 3 spare 5.25 drive bays, you can try mounting it there. Well, that's just my experience with the CM690II.

If your up for it, you can modd the rear port to allow the tubes through. Then you can mount the bulk of the rad and fans, outside the case.

5.25 bays are great, thats where I have mine now.

What I had originally tried was to make a push/pull setup with a shroud. I had one of the fans on the outside, but then I had problems closing the lid of the case. The fan got in the way so I had to unscrew the fan to put on the lid, and one of the holes for the screw for the lid was blocked by the fan. It wouldn't be that big of a problem for me, but I'm upgrading my system when I have money for the parts. If I modded the rear port, I would probably run into the same problem. I also forgot to mention, I had used some fan silencers so that added just a little bit, so without it, it probably wouldn't be as tight as a fit or it would fit perfectly. I was actually planning to mounting it in the 5.25 drive bays in the end when I have everything I new for my new system and turn my old one into a server or a HTPC or something

Now I remember why I moved it to the 5.25 bay

Ill have to re-assess my plan to place my H100 there now. I guess I can either modify the fan so the side panel closes or mod the top twin ports and place the rad there... why is nothing ever easy??

Because it's life, nothing comes easy and nothing makes sense, for the most part.

Forgot to ask, how did you mount it to your 5.25 bay? Just thinking in advance for when I do that.
