I am planning on getting one of the XP versions of this rad, with this case whenever it comes to amazon. Also going to be using my h220 up top, hopefully mount my single 120 in the bottom as well.

Edit: double post,

Also considering the XSPC AX360, as well as possibly the Alphacool UT-60 360mm. Will only be either push or pull. Any recommendations? The Swiftech seems to perform very close to the UT60, and it much cheaper and thinner, so I was just going to go with that. Haven't read anything solid yet on the XSPC AX360 but it does look very nice with the removable core.

Would you guys recommend the barbs be up top or bottom on the 360mm rad? If they are on the bottom, I considered having my 7970 heatkiller loop exit to the bottom of the 360, then the exit of the 360 from a 90 to the cpu. CPU outflow to the h220, h220 outflow to the 7970.

@newone757 how do you get fresh air to the PSU? I know it has a little gap between the case and PSU but its not fresh air.

My case is elevated off of the desk. With some of my sons mega-blocks for now. Ill likely grab some feet with a sticky side and slap em on but in the meantime this works and you cant see them, just kind of floats

Awesome. I'm planning to do this myself and settled with these.

Might be too big. But I haven't found a better alternative.

I ordered mine on Thursday last week. Took 24 hours to process and arrived with me on Monday (That's to the UK not US)

I was hoping an owner of this case would be able to shed some light on a question that I have.

Basically I'd like to know how much space there is up top of the case for a 240 rad. I have an Alphacool UT60 I'd like to fit in up top, and I'd like to know if it will fit in push/pull or just push.

Any info would be much appreciated thumb.gif

It's got 2-3/4" inch of space there so it's enough for a UT60 and push. Maybe push/pull will fit in there considering how wide the case is. Alternatively you can have the fans on top as well wink.gif

Well I ordered mine on Friday and went with the 2nd day air. Called them this afternoon and they told me that they were on back order, but expect ordered to be shipped out on the 18th, Thursday.
