is this the case??

this cooler should be able to fit in the top, even if just in a push or pull config exhausting out it will do more than fine, like geggeg said..ly case flat on its side...mount the pump/block first,,remember to keep a little pressure with one hand on the center while in Xpattern tightning the screws,,,and definitely redo tim....only need to use a tiny dobble in the center..thumb.gif

heres a quick guide..not the same exact cooler but same principle

If you are re-mounting the block, wipe off the thermal paste and apply a new layer if you have some more paste. If not, you would have to get some.

I was not re-mounting, just doing it for the first time. Bought some corsair TIM in case something goes wrong. I installed it even thou it had some pressure on it, but the structure seems pretty solid and I remained confident. Hope nothing goes wrong.

Yeah, that's the case! It doesn't fit the top with the air coolers under it. I can't put the radiator outside on top because there's not room to pass the tubes. The only way I could put it on top is if I had radiator inside and fans outside, but that doesn't seem a good alternative.

I installed the radiator before the block, because it was installed outside on the front, but was very careful. I had room to sacrifice the lower 5.25" bayer to pass the tubes through. Did the X pattern to tight the screws, but didn't put pressure on my finger so I don't apply the TIM before tightening it (does that makes sense? Read that somewhere).

I did watch this video before, but he didn't put the fans on the radiator.. That was my whole problem.

Some pics:

The front has some foam inside, hope it doesn't burn with the heat.



It doesn't close perfectly too because of the radiator thickness.



Full config. Look how little space I have on top to put the radiator + fans.


This config seems solid to me, so cool air goes through cpu and gpu and exhausts on front. I have more air exhausting than entering. Block has some pressure clockwise, but seems solid on this structure. If it seems unnatural I can find another position or try another config. What you guys think?

Thanks a lot for all the precious help.

Why not mount the radiator on the top but more towards the dvd-bay. Seems like the top panel is big enough to mount a big radiator with Push/Pull config.
I also mounted my H100i GTX the same way you did. But i turned the CPU-block around. Otherwise the tubing would be too long to fit properly in my case.



I also wrapped the upside-down Corsair logo with some carbon vinyl i still had left from when I wrapped the interior of my car.

I thought of that.. But this config seems best for me, as I can put 2 fans to intake and 2 fans to exhaust. I i had it on top, I would had 1 fan intake from the front and 3 exhausting in the back (would it be better?)

Searching about this pull/push config. My idea was just to push air from the case through the radiator and out the case.

I was going to do the same as you with the block, but it didn't reach far enough (see previous page, I posted a photo hehe)

Edit: Oh yeah, forgot one reason I didn't put it on top front: Front cables would be smashed with the radiator. Maybe if this config suits better I can just deal better with them. As the radiator is too big, it was always in front of the motherboard 12V PSU entrance and further it would compete with the front cables.

Thanks!

What you could also do, if you're quite handy with tools. Is move the HDD bay to the left around 1-2 inches. (I completely removed my HDD bay, for the radiator to fit perfectly. Switched over to 2x SSD instead.)
That makes some space for the radiator to fit perfectly inside the case and the fans on the outside where the radiator was. Which also allows you to mount the CPU-block like i did. You also can mount the fans as push/pull config.

Or if you don't use a dvd-drive you can remove the 5,25" bay aswell and mount the radiator there.

Great idea! will do that. Just need to make some holes. The downside is I have to remove the block, reapply TIM, etc... My PSU was arriving tomorrow, was excited to get things going. But I'll not be lazy, this idea seems great. Will wait for PSU so I can measure well before making some holes.

I plan to get one 5.25" to put an ICY DOCK 6 bay 2.5 ssd, to make a 4ssd raid 0 on the future. Maybe another one to a blue ray drive, but I'm guessing an external one will suit best because of the many pc's/mac's we have on the studio, so one bay need to stay for future upgrade. Your first idea seems awesome, will stick to that. You think it'll be better than the way it is?

Push pull config is one fan intake and other exhausting? sorry, kinda new to this water cooling stuff, will do a better research before getting into questions.

Thanks

Here is something else you could consider. I think it would look awesome on your case:

http://www.overclock.net/t/907643/corsair-obsidian-650d-mid-tower/750#post_14943357

The shroud on the top of that case holds the two fans, with the rad mounted inside under the fans. I think it ads to the look of the case.

Would it not be worse for venting? or doesn't matter? I read in a youtube video that with all vents off, the temperature was only 10ºC lower, but as I'm planning on doing a 1Ghz overclock, that might be more..

Seems nice anyway, thanks. I may try to think on a fan support, maybe start modding, have a lot of tools home.. For the future.

If you move your radiator to the inside there won't be so much tension on the tubing, which you have now. And push/pull config will be possible and allow you to OC it over +1 GHz.
And you can make it as silent as you want it. My push/pull config allows me to have the fans at 70% which is barely noticable, but still does decent cooling.

This is push/pull:
