Wait, never mind, there is no way the front bottom fan can fit, lol. Looked at it wrong. Btw, is it an idea to put the rear fan of the case from exhaust into intake? To provide cold fresh air for the top rad?

You right! thumb.gif

I only drilled some holes on the top because the case fan holes didn't line up with the rad. The rad fan spacing is 3/4" apart, and the case is exactly 1". Other than that, your good to go. I did cut the stealth OD bay supports so I can us them. If your ok with out the covers, then you wont have to cut anything.

Before
448

After
700

The end result.

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 was banking on no modifications, but nothing goes as planned. thumb.gif

Yeah, I was doing a fit test and didn't want to use all the screws. Since I'll be taking the rads out and doing some cable management with the fan cables.

I'm not 100% sure on the orientation of the fans? I just slapped them on to get an Idea of how the rads would look. I know the top will be exhaust, the front of the case will be intake, the rear exhaust, and the bottom will more than likely be intake. I haven't made up my mind?

I'm a little behind you in a similar build. I'm going to finish drilling the new holes for the Phobya 420 radiator up top tomorrow. Do you have any issues with putting fittings on the radiator inlet/outlet? While I was testing the fit out it seemed to be very close to hitting the IO shield. I'll probably find out tomorrow if it's an issue! Great job so far!

I dont know if you've already test fitted the to see if the barbs/compression fittings would hit the I/O Shield. But when I installed mine, it was making contact with the very top of the I/O Shield. I'll post pics some time today to show you what it looks like.

Ok guys, here's what I have so far. As you can see, it's a really tight fit with the barb and I/O shield. So you might want to consider a 90* fitting and run the tubes through the back or along the rad. I have my tubes running through the back.
600

The next problem i had were with the 8-Pin to 4+4 cable. The Asus Sabertooth mobo's connection is at the very top left corner of the board, (as most of them are.) I had to cut the little tabs that secure the cable to the socket in order to make a connection. The 8-pin cable fit really tight, so there are no worries of it loosening.

The pieces I cut.

Here's how close it is with the 140mm exhaust fan the barb that will go into the cpu block. If you get extension fittings and a 120mm fan, you'll gain more clearance.
600
448

As you can see from the fan spinning, the red cables are not making contact.

That's it for now guys, more updates later today or tomorrow.
