SR1 140 or TA 140.1 in Corsair 800D?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi, I've heard mixed results on using an SR1 140 on the back/top of the 800D.

The bottom of that fan position looks pretty close to the top of the first MB card slot, so I'd hate to order it, just to curse myself later (there will be plenty of that to come in the build!).

So, has anyone out there tried to fit an SR1 140 inside an 800D? What about a TA 140.1?

P.S. As a fallback, it looks like you could mount the rad on the outside, and just the fan on the inside (ie. the fan comes mounted this way from the factory). The plumbing, of course, would be less than ideal, in this case.

Thx to all!

Single 140mm rads will not fit internally in the rear fan mount (the one right next to the IO plate) as there is not enough clearance like you mentioned. It can go externally, or I used to run a 120mm there without a problem. For a single 140 internally you need to mount it to the midplate or add some custom mounts.

Edit: Fan can bbe mounted inside and rad outside, but I don't like external rads personally so I'd avoid it. Personal preference though obviously!

So, AFAYK, would even a thick TA120.1 be OK in that position, internal to the case, with a GT fan attached?

That will depend on your clearances on that side of the motherboard, and anything you have on the ceiling, but yes, it should be fine. Just be prepared for overlap on the motherboard.
