RX120 on rear of 700D

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I plan on adding an RX120 to the rear of my 700D.

Does it make sense to "pancake" the case with the radiator mounted on the outside and the fan mounted on the inside (push/exhaust)?

Radiator|Case|Fan

I've seen people mount shrouds or brackets with both rad and fan being outside but I am trying to avoid adding too much bulk outside of the case.

Whaddayathink?

Fan outside in pull works only. There's a pic of mine in a similar thread.

What do you already have for rads? If you have a top 360 mounted (or more), I wouldn't bother with the 120 rear. The results will be negligible. I'd throw the fan around and make it an intake, and put a fan filter on it. Then it's feeding some cool air to your top exhausting radiator.

Yes, I already have an RX360 on the top of the case. But I am adding a third watercooled gpu to my rig. I was already pushing it with a single 360 for a mobo block, two gpus, and a cpu block. I figured I could add a 120 to the rear.

You definitely need more rad. I would suggest adding a 240 at the bottom of the case. The mod is pretty simple and, if you don't want to mod the case to lay the rad flat, you can fit the rad on it's side at the bottom of the case. A 240 rad will slide in to the lower HD tray with enough room for push or pull fans.

Or I recommend adding the rear 120mm and a 140mm on the floor. That is what I am doing.

Ideally the bottom 240 is the most efficient route, but you gotta balance that with CBA... can't be arsed to do it. This is why I did the 120 rear. Depending on your overclock goal, it works good for clocks below 4.4ghz.

I was really irritated when my 120 rad didn't fit on the inside of my case because of the stupid NB cooler on my Classy3 mobo

120 on the inside or the outside?

my mobo nozzle/tubing would get in the way of a 120 mounted on the inside. which is why i was wondering if anyone put the rad on the outside with a push fan on the inside. I guess I could mount both on the outside, but i was just trying to reduce any bulk on the outside...i wanted to see if anyone had any pictures of what I am looking for before I go start buying the parts.
