Im really curious how that 420 looks up top. I was thinking about doing watercooling at some point in my switch thumb.gif

Wow, these rads are definitely beast. I ran into a couple of snags and will have to bust out the dermal. Unfortunately it's not going to happen tonight.

I'll have to remove the top stealth 5.25" drive supports if I want to use the 5.25" covers. But, if your ok with out them, then your good to go!

On a good note, the rad fits...and it'll fit in p/p! wheee.gif

With room to spare! Of course you can dermal the top of the 5.25" bay for better air flow, but you don't have to if your ok with the clearance.

As for the bottom rad, that's another story. NONE of the holes lined up. I'll show you guys what i'll have to do to get the bottom rad to fit this weekend. I'll post pics of what I'll have to dermal in order to get the beast of a 280 rad on the bottom. thumb.gif

opps, I forgot to mention that one of the three top fans will line up. The rest of the holes will have to be drilled. Nothing to major considering the rad will fit in p/p!

Top rad looks good.
Can't wait to see the bottom one in there as well.

It I it looks really good up there. But be prepared to make your own mounting holes if you deiced to get the Phobya G-Changer rad. The holes on the rad are spaced 3/4" and the spacing on the S810 is 1" So you'll be drilling your own holes.

Thanks! Nothing goes as planned and I'll be drilling some holes in the bottom to mount the rad as well as the top so I can mount the rest of the fans. Did you or are you going to cut the top of the 5.25" drive bay for better air flow or leave it as is? I'm still indecisive?? since it's not my case, I'll probably leave it alone?

How do you like those fans? I have had a few people tell me they sound kinda weird because of the rifle bearing.

It's actually not bad at all. They spin at 1300rpm and are fairly quite. Plus you can pop the fans out for easy cleaning.
