Lian LI Oh NO!!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I fell in love with the Lian Li V2100 at first sight. This thing is huge and has the upside down style i can't get enough of. I FINALLY found a good enough deal and went ahead and ordered the thing. Now im scared my CPU cooler isn't going to fit! I JUST got the ZALMAN CNPS7700-CU 120mm and am very happy with it. BUT now i see these pics and it looks like the hsf will not fit since the "top" ( bottom in this case) of the mobo is so close to that divider. The 7700 sticks about 1/2 an inch over the side of the mobo. Anyone know either way???

hm... i don't know, that looks really close. My guess is that it won't.

or, if you're daring, go modding a bit and cut a hole in that divider to allow the cooler to fit,

Yeah im guessing its not going to fit. But i dont wanna cut a hole and let the hot air in from the psu area ( not that is could possable make any difference). I guess i will have to cut a hole and then tack in a box that extends down an inch or so into the psu area.

edit:: Perhaps someone here would like to straight up trade a 7000 for my 7700. I think the 90mm would fit.

Hey hey, this is a perfect excuse to get a new motherboard (where cpu is located further in). Even if there is nothing wrong with your current m/b... Its always nice to have a valid reason for new stuff lol

You're foosed dude. I had the same problem with a 7700 with a DFI875P-T board in an Antec Superlanboy case. Had to buy a 7000. Fortunately, I sold the 7700 I had at the time (I have a 7700 now in my main system but my case is a liittttle bit bigger this time around).

Yeah i doubt im going to get away with the clearance... Is there anyone that would like to upgrade from a 7000 to a 7700 for the cost of shipping?

Im hoping your right but i have the 7700 on my board now and it sticks over the edge of the mobo by about half an inch so if the mounting screws locate the mobo in the same place (i think it would have to due to the back pannel) im SOL...
