EK 360 HFX but i would like to know (before buying it) if the radiator have to be slim or not because the height of the EK radiators is 64cm without the fan there will be problem with the Motherbord or something other??
Thank you smile.gif
P.s.
I will put it on the top of the case.

well it does not have to be a slim radiator but clearances will be tight. I take it you have the proper tools?

I haven't tried myself but I'm almost a 100% sure that a 64mm rad up there won't fit in push/pull. With only two fans (on the top in the part where there's usually nothing, between the actual inside and the mesh) I'm not sure.

I said 2 fans because from what I've seen here you can't fit 3 fans up there and people tend to use thin 360 rads with 5 fans.

Thank u too... i would like to put the radiator with the metal bracket 3 push fans into the case (under the radiator) and 2 pull fans into the top part of the case ( that one you can remove where ther is the fan controller) So i would like to know if i can put 6,4cm height radiator + the fans in my case smile.gif

Otherwise i will need a slim radiator like XSPC or other...but i think there is someone here that put a 360 radiator from EK and can tell me if there will be no problem putting it into the case hehehe

wait...you want to use the bracket provided to hang the big radiator? very bad idea. I'm not telling you what to do but you should be using a custom radiator plate for the top of the case. Those two brackets provided were never meant to hold a 360 radiator.

Oh, I'd understood he was talking about making his own bracket (like yours) because he said he could do it, not that he had them.

Cheers.

I had the same question when I got my Phantom. I ended up getting Green LED fan controller switch along with Green LED power buttons as the Black/Green Phantom comes with those stock. However my build looked horrible with green LED's and I ended up soldering Warmwhite LED's two nights ago. (I will post pictures soon)

Now inquire with Rob.Teller@nzxt.com and ask him about getting green led from him and he might be able to request you a set as that's who supplied me with mine.

Yes but you will lose the 200mm fans
Mount two under the plastic shell on top of the case, Radiator where the 200mm fans would go and then of course two fans under the Radiator
