Corsair 800/700d Bottom 240 Radiator Question

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'll be getting my 800d this week, and am going to eventually take out the bottom hard drive cage to stick a 240 rad down there. However, I am away at school at the moment, and do not have access to a dremel. Is it possible to stick that 240 rad down there while not touching the hard drive cage? I know it won't get the best airflow, but it's only temporary for a bit until I go back home. Looks like it might be able to go sideways?The power supply will be an hx850, so it will be slightly shorter than all those 1000w+ power supply's. Or should I just fork out some extra cash and mount it outside of the case. I was checking out this koolance radiator bracket:

Any other suggestions are welcome smile.gif

I don't know what radiators you already have, but modding the top of the case to fit 480 radiator is very easy and will give you similar cooling performance.

Also, you don't need a dremel to mod the bottom, a jig saw will do just fine. It's not like anyone is going to look at it.

I suppose that would work as a temporary part. Cheaper than the koolance bracket I found. Forgot all about swiftech. + to you.

Ah forgot to mention. I have an RX360 and RX240. I won't be getting a 480 as I already have these two. Only tool I have here at school are a pair of tin snips, is it possible with those? Might mutilate the cage to get it out, but what's it worth after modding the cage anyways right? I'll be able to clean it up a bit when I get home.

thats what i always figure.

I always take a drive cage out of my cases. main cage in my PC-7FW and the upper cage in my PC-A70F and i have never put one back in so i dont usually worry about messing them up smile.gif

I have also been thinking about changing to a 800D.... do you run push/pull on the RX360 up top?

i have p/p yates on my RX360 in my lian Li A70 but there is alot more room up top in my case. how close would it be to the top of the mobo with push/pull fans??

From what I've looked through on the 800/700d obsidian club thread you can. It just might come over the top cable management holes a little bit. I'll try to dig up a photo for you. I looked through that thread quite a bit before picking one up

Alright thanks. I love my lian li but there is just to much modding and work to have a nice water-cooling loop and still have good cable management. Plus behind tbe mobo is only about a 3/4" gap for cables back there and makes the side panel bulge out.


I'll tear through the 700/800d thread in the cases section when I get home

Generally no. The RX360 is just way to thick. If you have a board that doesn't have any sinks along the top edge you will be able to squeeze it in, but I couldn't with my board. Hell, with just fans in pull, there's 3/4 in of clearance to my boards sinks.
