Grab a ruler a measure from the top of case to your motherboard, if it's greater then 110mm then it will fit, however, I don't think it is.

I would get an RS240 kit and another RS240 and mount it down the bottom. One RS240 in pull up top and another in push and pull down the bottom.

You might actually be able to put an RX240 down the bottom if you cut out some hard drive bays.

If I'm correct it's just 2.5cm from top to mobo. How's that?

Is that including the top fans?

There's not that much clearance up top, I'd put it down the bottom.

If you mount the rad down the bottom you'll have enough space.

Well it's 2.5 from the top of the inside case. There's no fans. And that 2.5 is from that top to the edge of the mobo.

I have to say, coloured pre mixes are fine. (even the damn feser ones)

I personally have never had my dye separate.

I've posted this on another forum but here it goes.

The cloudiness on my res was from a previous loop where I used R3603. No gunking and no corrosion. On another note, those rotary barbs from enzotech are most excellent.

Note that I'm not a fes(t)er promoter though. Those S.O.B made crap rotaries (which you see on my rear rad that constantly leaked)

So yes, keep the light out, don't use cheap tubing and you'll be fine. You don't have to worry about algae with pre mixes either. Propylene glycol isn't as good as water but the corrosion and algae issues are not present.

Oh, perhaps a section about tubing sizes would be good. Divided into those which follow american units and those which go by metric ones (european sizes)

for example, 8/11 tubing isn't exactly 1/4" ID, 3/8" OD.

I just advise against it because I've heard some absolute horror stories about dyes.

I've never seen tubing ever listed in EU sizes, always in inches. I'll think about it though.

I heard them too. And I was worried. but I've gone through multiple loops with them (primochill and Feser) without problems. I have this suspicion that excessive lighting or leeching of plasticisers from cheap tubing could have led to separation. I've had gunking on tubes on cheap thermaltake hoses and the all popular Tygon R3606 but after switching to B-44-3 and Primochill tubing, there simply isn't tube clouding and/or gunk forming anywhere any more. (except on the swiftech res which again, is simply acrylic)

I guess I run into odd sizes pretty often as I'm one of the few users of 1/4" ID 3/8" OD tubing. bitspower and enzotech produce 1/4", 3/8" comps while Feser and Innovatek produce 10/8mm and 11/8mm comps that even online shops such as Frozencpu are unable to differentiate.

Oh here are two comps.

Guess which is the in european sizes.

A cross section of 1/4" ID, 3/8" OD tubing is above for reference

Sorry to be a pain. So will mine fit in the top?

Nope, you'll have to put it down the bottom.
