Anyone can tell me if the RASA 750 240mm radiator can fit on top with an ASUS P8P67 ? If not, what are the best mounting options ?

Thanks.

Mikeseth,

Your HDD bay looks like it's a bit crooked. Is that the case?


I really like this case except for the fact that the front 200mm fan isn't the standard 200x30mm. What's the problem with switching the front 200mm fan with a 200x30mm fan? Is it that the screw holes are different? Or is there not enough space/does it push against the HDD bay?

Looks like his fan bracket isn't seated correctly on the bottom half and is pushing on his HDD bay causing it to lean.

You would have to (re)move the HDD bay(s) for it to fit. The 200x200x20mm fan is attached with a bracket (made for 20mm) that snaps in so there aren't any mounting holes.

LOL, it is crooked... The bottom part of the hdd bay isnt in properly. I just pushed it on there. Fixing it right now.

I'm thinking of getting this case. I contacted a couple resellers, and appears that nobody knows exactly when the SE edition is gonna hit Europe. But the best guess would be late April. I'm am a bit concerned tho, cause my 360 rad and 250ml tube reservoire will never fit in this case. I'm housing my rig in a 800D right now but its a tad to big for my taste...On the other hand, I I'm just gonna get a 240 and try mounting it in the front. Anyone knows if its possible without modding?

Hi guys!

I am part of those who building inside a 600T but i had some questions regarding how a watercooling setup could be made with the case.

Anyone tried to fit a 240 radiator inside the top with an ASUS P8P67 ?

Are the headsink or 8 pins plug in the way ?

Or is there a way to use the water cooling tube holes with a mounted rad in the back ? ive heard they got a bad position is it true ?

Thanks.

Seem lots of poeple are concerned with radiators installation on this case. From what ive heard.. this is rather hard and depend on many factors.

- First of all, you could mount it at the top of the case inside and the fan would go the other side of the grid.. however some motherboard will make this mounting impossible due to the 8 pins psu connector. This seem to be the case with my motherboard the ASUS P8P67. (But havent tried it yet since i do not have the watercooling kit at hand yet)

- The front option ive heard about it. It seem you can mount a 240m radiator.. but i am not sure about the modding part. Ive seen someone that had there a big 200m radiator in place. But that may not be the best place to put a radiator since this place is intented to pull air but that may doesnt matter if you change the airflow of your case.

- Another option is using the watercooling holes and mount the rad in the back of the case.. but again unfortunally someone ive heard said that the holes emplacement are not the best. He had to pass one of the tube through PCI slots using some adapter such : http://www.overclockers.co.uk/pimg/WC-014-BP_400.jpg or you may try http://www.dazmode.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=110_72&products_id=641 but he also said this one might cause leaks.

- Another option would be to use a stand to mount the rad. Probably the worst option.

If anyone have an option without modding that would be nice to know, i am a bit desesperate too frown.gif

You have to use a thin Rad like my Swiftech 240. I had a small clearence issue with my 8 pin connector. All I did was clip the plastic retainer and it fit in nicely. The plug stays in tight without it. I have another 120mm rad mounted to the back exhaust, but all internally. I dont know how well the tubing holes would work for an external radiator.

I also have a 250mm reservoir, the T-Virus from Frozen_Q. It fits fine in my case, to the right of the Mobo. There are 2 bump outs on the back of the MOBO plate, for zip ties. I clipped them loose and used the holes to mount my screws. I have a drill and bits, but those holes lined up with where I wanted them.

You cannot mount a 240 radiator up front unless you cut into the 5.25 bays, or cut the bottom of the case. = Hard mod

You can add a 200mm Phobya (might be misspelled) to the front, and then use some good 200mm fans. I would not recommend the stock 200mm fans for that. = Easy mod

It is also best to use all your radiators as the same setup. Both in push or both in pull. Otherwise you will recycle hot air and lose efficiency.
