I want a thick, beefy rad. I ordered a Coolgate Triple 140.

Here is the problem I ran into with the bottom rad. The rad was nearly kissing the back of the PSU, the fan holes didn't line up, and the front fan brackets needed to be cut so I can have more room between the rad and the PSU.

So I measured what I needed to cut, and used my dremel.

To my surprise, I didn't neet to drill fan holes because the ones on the cased lined up properly. headscratch.gif

So now that I have the radiater's mounted, it's time to move on with the build!

I am glad you had the guts to Dremel this case.
So far I am only looking at picking up stuff that will fit without modification because I don't want to touch my case lol.
Not saying I am afraid to chop up a case just this one wink.gif

I dont think he had to cut anything, definitely did remove the stealth bay, but did have to drill some holes to have them line up with the Phobya 420. But I dont think all 420 rads will be like that, if you look at Iggg's worklog, the Black Ice 420 he is using lined up perfectly with the stock holes.

Yeah looking awesome! Good job on making the front bottom fan fit. Do I only count two screws per fan on the front?
