haf 912 and coolit eco 240

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Well my urges got the better of me and I picked up a coolit eco 240 around Christmas for 100. The good news is that it cools better than my h50 with only 2 gt ap15s pushing exhaust. The bad news is that it does not fit internally in my case; at the moment I have it ziptied off-center at the top of the case grill, which makes me think that cases should have offset mounting for rads to fit in smaller cases. Anyways, I have two options here. Either I

a) mod my case

b) buy a bigger case

Right now I have my eye on a haf 932, and who knows, maybe one day I will go true water. Just kinda ranting. Thoughts?

Personally I'd go with the Corsair 700D or 800D if you will possibly be going water later. If not I'd get the HAF X cause this monster has so much room, its nice cause its all black and it has a crap ton of space to put in rads or lots of fans.

Is there a spot to mount a rad on top of the haf x internally?

Is it pushing against the mobo tray? I built a 912 for my nephew and it looks kinda tight up there. They say you can fit a 240 rad but it looks like you've proved them wrong.
