Nice you shifted the drive bays back, surprised you didn't hit your graphics card though.

Yeah the 300 is a tough case to make work with absolutely no modification. I like the 900 with the rx120 on the rear. I don't think you can do a 140 at the top though internally because you may hit your ram.

I went external mount because there was no way I was going to fit it all in, excuse the bad picture:



I woudln't recommend you do it the way I did though if you go external mount unless you want excessive rads. Using a fan box to mount to the rear 120 blow hole and mounting the rad vertically from there is the most common. Then like others said you can put your tubing through the expansion slots (but only if you use narrow tubing - I don't think my 7/16 ID tubing would squeeze though.

I did a fair bit of modding, painted the inside, drilled holes for the tubing, cut slots for hiding of wires, also had to take apart the fan controller and relocate the variable resistors as I didn't have enough drive bays. I have five hard drives in there + 2 graphics card + raid card, so there really wasn't room to do it any other way.

Still have to put a window in and the lighting, and by that time it'll be time to change something else lol.

Very Clean! I like the look of that build. I can't believe you were able to get it to all fit, it looks very snug but practical. You should re-route the 8pin to behind the back board, and maybe clean up the cables on the right but otherwise that is a nice build.

What are your temps inside the case? How is the airflow for your other components?

I am curious how you mounted that rad, can you close the front still? which rad is it? Did you have to drill?
post #27 of 28
The computer closes just like the regular antec does. The only drilling I had to do was to remove the rivets of the hd cage so that I could slide it back some. As for the mounting of the radiator I mounted it to the fans which in term mount to that little cagey thingy with the silver screws. I'll try to take some pics to explain better.

I was thinking 140mm for the top :

MagiCool SLIM SINGLE 140 MC Radiator

and 120mm for the rear :

MagiCool SLIM SINGLE 120 Radiator

Do you think that would work?

OR maybe 1 280mm for the top?

I also attached loops ideas.
