Rear radiator mounting question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey all. I'm a WC newb and I have a major (in my opinion) build coming up. I will have two rads in my 800D. RX360 on top and the RX240 out the back. I originally wanted the 240 to be internal, but it seemed that i'd have to do alot of dremel work and what not, so I'm going the alt route. My question is, will the swiftech radbox accommodate the RX240 for the rear mounted radiator setup?

Yes, the Swiftech rad box will have no problems holding a 240 to the back of your case. The only thing to watch out for is if you are blocking any IO ports (mostly from graphics cards).

Why not just mount a 480 in the top? It doesn't take any work with a dremel, and it only takes a bit of work with a jigsaw. It can look pretty nice very easily, here's a picture of mine (the white lines are the radiator, I painted it white).




If you really don't want to mod the top at all you could mount the RX240 off the back quite easily using a radiator box.

I actually went with the koolance rear mount kit. The 480 would be nice, but I have a different loop that some would not agree with and others might. res--pump--rad--CPU--rad--GPU1--GPU2--res. I plan on OC-ing the hell out of my CPU and both GPU.
