I have measured the amount of clearance between my 8 pin plug and the top and it seems that the rad needs to be 31mm or less without clipping anything.

The RS240 is 35mm and swiftech mcr220 is 34mm. Both seems to have an issue with clearing. The only rad that I've looked up that seems to fit without a problem is the HW labs Black Ice stealth 240 with 29.6mm but the 30fpi is a problem for me since I'm trying to keep this silent.

Hope this helps but I regret purchasing this case for watercooling.
I also bought a GTX 240 and it definitely doesn't fit! Whoops. I just picked up a Black Ice GT 240 which should fit perfectly. In fact my 6990 water block is coming in tonight so I'll finally be able to set my water cooling up!

If you want I can throw the radiator on top and tell you how loud it is with my scythe 1850s... not sure if it makes a difference with water in it

I might consider this but I am using both HDD racks at the moment. I would have to get rid of one of my hdds or maybe move it up to the 5.25 bays with an adapter. thanks for the suggestion.

Yes please let me know. I thought about doing this and getting some new fans and put the GT-15s on the fan controller and just turn them down when I sleep. Either way It's just more money coming out the pocket. I could have just spent the extra cost and bought the 800D. right now I have 2 noiseblocker xL1 and they are only 1000rpm.

Is the only problem with this rad the cpu power connector? Am I correct that the power connector is hitting the rad, but if the connector was gone the rad would fit?

If this is the case, personally, I would look at modding the power connector. It can't be too hard to find a 90 degree connector you could use as a replacement. A last option would even be to remove the connector, solder some wires directly to the motherboard and install a connector at the end of the wires.

For the rx240 its impossible to clear because of the ram slots too.

Can you run 3x cards in SLI and NOT roast them in this case?

Depends on which cards and if you're watercooling them or not.

Just received mine today !
I'll have to do a stealth drive mod and order a windowed panel then it will be perfect !
If someone have already done the stealth drive mod with this case I may be interested in some pictures of the mod.

Waiting for it to be done before posting any picture, but it's a great case so far !

Guys, this case building stuff is a lot of work. I mean, sure, it IS fun, but look at how much it costs. Consider the dangers involved (leaks. boards and parts overclocked to death and such). The hours of research we have to do on the tiniest of details like which fan had the highest cfm, or which rad will fit where.

I mean, instead of your wife being happy you're in the basement working on your PC, wouldn't you rather be at the game with some buds and a few cold ones?

I think I may have come up with a solution. I haven't googled it, so I hope no one beat me to it.

If you had a windowed case, or make a window to the correct size requirement in your current case, you could mount the LCD panel from inside an LCD monitor right inside the window. Run the cable out back and plug it into a secondary monitor port. You could put any video, animation or picture (or combination thereof) on that monitor, and from the outside it could look like anything.

When the old lady asks you "Harold, WHERE have you BEEN all night" you can say "I was working on my PC dear", and she'll say "Well I didn't hear you down there", and you can show here the side of your case and say "See the new watercooling system I installed" while the side monitor is showing the picture of some awesome build you got from overclock.net.

Or, that annoying buddy comes over with friends bragging about his latest build, you can have an animated build of the most recent Intel CPU with the best available components and most expensive parts. You could show an animation you rendered in 3D and claim you custom built it from scratch.

Take your rig to a big local LAN party and always have a better install than whoever is around without paying what they paid.

In the meantime, you could spend all your spare money on beers and sports. Just leave some old Pentium 4 system installed in your case so it can run a couple of monitors with a picture on the 2nd monitor and windows in the primary monitor.

4:3 monitor (or whatever fits) + Window Side Panel = Whatever you want

Of course, if you want big (and I mean HUGE) romance points with the other half, put her picture on the monitor. You'll get some for sure.
