Did some cutting today on the Obsidian.
I removed the lower HDD cage to fit the 240 RAD. I cut out the side panel with a dremel for the 120mm fans and placed a bitspower RAD grill on the side panel to cover it up as you can see below. I just lined it up and marked the screw holes for the RAD grill then drilled away. I bolted the RAD grill to the side panel. The RAD and fans are inside the case.
In this picture below, I cut out a section of the case that sticks out to make it flat so I can fit the 240RAD behind the metal of the case and place 2 120mm fans on the other side and bolt them together through the inside of the case through the drilled holes.
Since the top of the fans is going through the case, I added the Anti-vibration silicon pads just on the lower half of the fan to even it out. Worked great.
Not sure if that made since, but here is the pic of the RAD by itself and one with the fans attached.
Ignore the cables as I have not cleaned them up or finished sleeving the new pumps yet.
And here is a pic of the RAD and Pump placement inside the case
I am receiving the majority of my new parts tomorrow and Wednesday, so more to come.
