post #11311 of 16055
Has anyone tried to put a 280mm AIO in their Midi R2? What's the clearance like?
If not I'll just get either a H100i or H105.

Very very tight, but should fit if you bolt the rad to the roof with the fittings/hose side into the ODD bay, then mount the fans to rad while fiddling with the rear fan at the same time.

Minor brute force to the top ODD bay might be needed smile.gif

I managed to fit a Kraken X60 in the roof of a ARC MIDI R1 with a selection of curse words & some brute force to the ODD bay.

Would you possibly have a picture so I can see cause I'm using both the ODD bays.
Looks like Swiftech is coming out with a new 240mm AIO so maybe I'll wait a bit and see if that's worth it. smile.gif

I'll see if i can find one smile.gif
However somewhere (way earlier) in this thread, someone did more or less the same, but he cut a 1" piece out of the ODD.
On the R2 you can take the bays out, so its a lot easier to mod the top bay (bend out or hacksaw it)

Ah the H220X ... it looks very promising and should fit without problems.... but its release has been delayed several times now. The last i've heard is "soon , this month" smile.gif



UPDATE:

See this post: http://www.overclock.net/t/838683/fractal-design-case-club/8000_100#post_20245950

Its a very very tight fit. It may fit without too much fiddling or it may not.
Worst case scenario, you have to bend or cut out the piece marked in the pic.



Because i wanted to keep my rear exhaust fan, i mounted it with the hoses on the ODD side.
Note that you wont be able to put normal/long things in the top ODD , an fan control and such will be ok, a full size BD drive wont. But you still have the ODD bay underneath, so. That's what i've done

Ok thanks!
I still have about a week and half to look for AIO so there's time for you to find one smile.gif
