post #12071 of 22267
Hi guys,

Without digging through too many posts and such, wanted some info from anyone that have a link or experience with mounting an I7-4790K CPU only closed loop corsair radiator to a Merlin SM8 front or top? Thank you.

The more I look at this I think this is the way to go, might order today. What are these made of, aluminum? And what is the best way to cut the 120mm fan holes? Is there a blade or bit that works best or just by hand with a dremel? Doesn't have to be the cleanest as it will be hidden by the rad and fans. Thx thumb.gif

Thanks, I'm mostly wondering what if any Corsair closed loop will reach from preferably the front flex bay to the CPU on an SM8 otherwise it will be on top and if the mounting matches without modding it.

I have a spare white drop in but you'll need the drop in chassis also with 480 holes but it's for a Merlin SM8. Not sure if it will fit. You pay for shipping and it's yours but check first to make sure it's compatible.

I'd imagine a hole saw for a drill might work. Would just have to be careful....

well, I have a spare H105 cooler and tried to hold up the radiator in the front with my hand, and this is as far as it can go.



it won't reach.

Yeah a hole saw bit will work. You'll probably want to match the hole sizes to the Hexa 720's shroud, but in general 120mm fan = 4.5” hole saw and 140mm fan = 5.5" hole saw.





Edit:
Or you could use a jigsaw instead ... (Click to show)

I like the jigsaw method simply because I have a jigsaw and the blades for aluminum are alot cheaper than the hole saw and mandrel, plus i'd need a beefier drill or rent a press. Then again a dozen donuts might get the machine shop at work to do it for me

I think the Drop-In Solid Mount is the easiest way to go, I would like to see how this ends up. They sell a solid top cover, but i think they don't sell it extended, but you could think a way to mod your top cover too.
