You'll need space for the RAD with a push pull config. (antec 920)
Check the dimensions online, and see if it will fit.

Ok, thanks. I'll check out the dimensions.

I'm pretty sure it'll fit in the top forward HD bay, but am concerned about the back plate. I read another post about the Corsair H80 and some one had mentioned the possibility of the back-plate being an issue. I was sure if the same was true for the Antec.

ah well the backplate depends on your system - but it fits behind the motherboard....and is like 3mm thick...shouldn't be a problem surely...

You can find all the info in this thread: http://www.overclock.net/t/1203528/official-nvidia-gpu-mod-club-aka-the-mod/0_20
This particular one is fried and RMAd by now. No thanks to mod though.

Makes me scared to go back to team green... I've had a 6800gt, 7900gt, and 8800gt all die on me and the 9600gt never worked in 3D from day one. My only amd card is these two 5770's (not a problem yet)... only time will tell though.

On the other hand a friend of mine has had multiple ATI/AMD cards die on him so who knows.

Somebody is using CoolLab Liquid Ultra on the IHS and find problems on the coldplate/screws itself? Im using mine on 3770k die and ihs and so far is working great dont want to take it apart to investigate issues...

Im also not sure what kind of material are the screws used to hold the copper plate into the pump and Liquid Ultra have gallium on it XD....

Use prolimatech pk3. Hardware Secrets did a roundup on thermal paste and it beat out all the others including the coollab stuff

I am using the Ultra on my modified Kuhler 620 loop.
I was using Noctua NT-H1 paste before swapping over to the CooLab Ultra and shaved 5c from my load temps.
If you paint the IHS surface as CooLab says in the instructions you have no issues with the coldplate screws as they dont even touch the IHS.




Very high ambient temp around 26c

You have a link to that? cause all the roundups I have seen place the CooLab compounds 5-6c ahead of the next leading paste.

Edit. Found the link myself http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Thermal-Compound-Roundup-February-2012/1490/1
I would honestly say that if they applied the CooLab Ultra the same way as all the other compounds that is why it tested so poorly.

My first application of it onto my Kuhler 620 coldpate was using the "small pea" method of applying thermal paste, which works with pretty much every thermal compound I have ever used.
When I turned the pc back on I was greeted with exactly the same and slightly worse results than the Noctua paste it replaced.
So I pulled it all apart again and found that the Ultra had not spread propeerly over the IHS, infact it was hardly spread over at all.

See for anyone who has not used or seen the CooLab Ultra out of the tube it has all the looks and properties of Mercury.
To get a proper application of the Ultra compound you need to "paint" your IHS with the supplied brushes that come with the Ultra syringe.

I should think they know what they are doing, read these 2 articles
