what mid size case, cooler master cm690 ?

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
i want to make a very clean looking w/c setup. i want to use a XSPC X2O 750 Dual 5.25†Bay Reservoir Pump and a apogee xt but the most inportant part is the rad i want a 240 rad to fit in top of the case inside. cooler master is got a mid size case 912 will the rad fit inside on top?

Attachment 186307 the parts im going to be buying

Attachment 186308 this is what im looking for simple and clean

To me, I would go for this case: Corsair 600T, great for water cooling, simple looks, high quality - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811139003

Coolermaster 690 ii. Can fit a slim 240 rad up top and another rad in the bottom. Real clean look to it.

yeah cm690ii is probably the cheapest case (i think) that'd fit a 240 up top without modification

I would definitely get the CM690 case. It has some awesome cable management features and a ton of space for radiators.

I would switch your water-cooling part list to the XSPC Rasa 240 kit. It comes with the same radiator and pump, a better CPU block (XSPC Rasa) as well as tubing, barbs and clamps. All for $130.

Hi,

Here's mine. 690 II Adv.
Can still put another 240 up top if want to.
Just don't think need 600mm worth of water.

As to the Apogee XT, Works great for me.

if i went with a thicker rad with fans would it fit on top (inside)?

It's not advised that you use an internal radiator in the HAF 912. You can mount it externally however on top of the case. You might be better off getting the HAF 922 instead.

I feel like my HAF912 is much better geared towards air coolers rather than water cooling. Enough room for one maybe but not much.
