I removed the hard drive bays and bought a 3.25 to 5.25 bay adapter to install my hard drive in the 5.25 bays. Doing this really increased air flow from the two side 120mm fans (AeroCool Shark) and the one 140mm fan (AeroCool Shark). Really helped to lower my temps by doing this.

I also was able to fit a Cooler Master Mega Flow 200mm blue on the top! It was tricky getting it to fit, but I was able to.

Yep Anodized thumbscrews. I am still waiting on a bunch of parts to be able to start work on actually building the system but some modding to do in the mean time anyway smile.gif

Hi, what did u use to secure the 360 rad on top?
And did u mod the top cover in order for it to close?
I'm interested in doing a similar set up, but i'm worried about rad clearance from the motherboard, as well as mounting mechanisms.

Cheers

Hi,

I have some thin alloy plate which I was going to make mounts with but I decided in the end just to use a bitspower 360 rad shroud I had lying around, works perfectly!

I have had to trim fan shrouds, the top cover and both the fan control and the power button casings to get it all to fit. I am running a black ice GTS rad which is very thin so that I have enough room to run the push pull setup. I have not had the MB in yet but where I have the rad mounted atm as far as i can see it will clear the ram by a few mm, I will put the MB in tomorrow and take a pic so you can see.

Hi

Thanks for the info. I was also considering the Black Ice GTS for the rad. Din't think the push pull could be achieved though.
Have you considered a 240 rad on the bottom as well? That's what I am aiming for at the moment. Do you think it could be done?

Cheers
