The S3 is the same height as the S5, and @Gabrielzm managed to shoehorn an Aquaero in the top slot of his S5 (Gray Matter build) along with a 240 rad:

I know il be ok with a 240mm rad but the orginal question was to fit a 280mm rad in there as wanted to use 140mm fans but that wont fit. So will keep to 2x 240 mm rads and 120mm fans, so i can fit the aquaero in there. thumb.gif

Did you order any midplate rad mounts/plates for your TX? Tossing the idea of squeezing in one more rad in a triple 480 setup on top.

edit:



I have the mora 140.9 plate I inherited from Stren and I ended up using a nice piece of smoked acrylic to cover the holes and use the whole thing as a midplate.

yes, i have 480x3 mount for my top. and when i get my peds ill be buying more !

i have done it, and i hated it! you def can but it is hard/tight, the easiest way is to put the tanks to the top and squeeze it in at the bottom ( assuming i dont have my top and bottom confused ) - iirc the top has the most room

If you really want a 280 and the Aquaero, you could mount the Aquaero on some standoffs, without having its display attached, that way you could stash it almost anywhere and just access it via Aquasuite.

Thanks. Yeah, I hope so. My only worry about it is how to organize the two frozenq reservoirs. I think I'm probably going to put the pumps in the bottom, and drill pass-throughs into the space above so they can sit right where the front window is. Not precisely sure how I'll mount them yet, but I'm sure there will be some creative way to do it. Pretty much everything else I can already see how it is going to fit, logistically.
post #16610 of 22513
Oh, I'm considering putting holes in the top of the case for fillports. That would probably also help stabilize the reservoirs since it'll be rigid tube.
