800D radiator placement questions

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Alright let's see here. Well first of all we're talking about 120 and 240 rads here. 360's need not apply.

1.Is it better to have a top mounted or bottom mounted rad in this case? I'm guessing bottom maybe? Since it coincides with the airflow direction?

2.Is there any possible way to get a 240 rad in the bottom WITHOUT any heavy modding? I would LOVE to get a 240 down there but the thought of taking a dremel to my 800D is frightening!

Top... I believe there's room at the bottom but the top is where you want it. The airflow should be coming in at the bottom and exiting at the top in the default configuration, plus heat rises and you don't want to vent your rad all over the CPU and video cards.

I suppose that makes more sense. I don't know why but someone kept telling me that for this case it was better in the bottom. I doubt it.

I would just put a 360 in the top and call it a day honestly though.

Yeah, that just seems too crazy with the dremel and all.

I suppose top mounting will be it.

Shame too, because I really love how the 800D looks with the tubes going down into the bottom bay.

Well you can put a 240 in the bottom though you just have to mount the power supply in the top then.

all you need is a radbox. but you will lose the space of 4 pci slots on the bottom.
