case mod for Coolit Eco ALC

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
hey guys, all help will be useful i am new at this as its my first build so i am a newb at this!

this is my case: http://www.envizage.com/products/cas...ower-case.html

i have the coolit eco alc 120mm : http://www.coolitsystems.com/index.php/eco.html

on my case the rear has a 80mm sized space for a 80mm fan and the psu straight above it, so i doubt the rad would fit there, there is a 120mm fan on the side window but i wouldnt want it there no would anyone else to be honest, however there is a 120mm fan right at front of the case at the front bottom where there is a blue led fan you can see on the cases image on the link, would i be able to leave the rad there? or is it not a safe place to leave?

are there any other places i could mount it?
would i be able to mount it on top of the case ? the best option would have to be mount it on top? or place it flat on the bottom of the case? or the drive bays?

all help considered! thanks..... i will take some inside pics of the case tomorrow to give better ideas...

Got pictures atlast! sorry for taking ages! got about 7 pics...
in my suggestion i think the rad will HAVE to go into the drive bay... or drill the top of the case and place the rad ON TOP of the case as it wont fit in the case? unless anyone else sees other places or better ideas? all help is appreciated thanks for your time

I would honestly get a new case. haf 912 is only 50 bucks. OR i would cut a hole up top. i dont think the tubes will reach to your drive bays


After looking at pics a bit closer i think your only option is to get a new case. :/ your PSU will be on the top right?

right into my budget! and perfect case nice and big enough also supports the rad on top or at the rear! so i can place in either place when i feel like changing it about !
