It won't fit without modding the case. Although I do recall that it may be possible to mount it in the front if you cut the metal to fit it. As for rads I like swiftech just because its price for performance is better than any other. Sure there are other companies like Dangerden and Feser but you would have to pay a lot more. I would expect TFC would have the best 480 rad, being that super huge thick one. However its crazy expensive last time I checked.

IMO, the RX480 has a lot of bang for the buck. It's a very high performing rad.

It could maaaaaaaybe fit up top, you'd have to mod it though. I'd just hang it off the back to keep things simple.

EDIT: According to XSPC, the RX480 is 520mm long, the HAF932 is the same. I wouldn't try it. I would defiantly just get a mounting box. I don't think it's possible to fit a 480 in a 932, sorry.

EDIT 2: I just saw someone with a 480 up top, the end of the 480 was sticking out the drive covers though.

Mount it on the back like I did :]





You might need to prop the case feet up a bit though. My quad almost touches the floor.

I had a 932 with this RX360. I can say that a 480 radiator will fit with some modding however it would most likely look very ugly and be a lot of hassle.

Your best bet would be to mount it at the back like Davs did.

I'd just get the RX360 and be done with it. For your hardware the difference between a 480 and 360 radiator is very small so I wouldn't worry about it.
