For the option of putting a rad in the side of the dynamic it would usually go in the secondary chamber not the main and then the fans would be in the pull configuration from the main chamber. This allows for plumbing the rad in the top port position. The issue there is it looks like you've bought a GTS which is slightly too wide because of how the case's front panel is configured but that can be modified.

Thanks for the info. Unfortunately i'm not really comfortable modding the case as its 100% the type of thing i'd mess up. The only way i could mount the GTS on the side would be with the ports on the bottom. I'm only using soft tubing but i'm not sure how easy it would be to plumb it all together with those ports on the bottom with the res/pump mounted slightly higher.

I dont know if this would work?



Loop order being Pump/Res>GPU>CPU>Top Rad>Side Rad>Pump/Res

Tubing runs would look seriously weird though.

ThrashZone Hi,
Yeah if you don't care if blocks half the bottom of the board go for it.
Thick one work and looks good on the top and has enough room for push/ pull fans looks like.

I guess since you put the thin rad on the back on the same plain as the mother board attaches too there is no way to mount a radiator on the front of the case.

Goooober I have to say that aesthetically i prefer the rads top and bottom. The thick rad on the bottom would be my preference and although its tight it should be doable to get tubing from the rad to the GPU with 90 degree fittings.

ThrashZone Hi,
Put the thinner rad on top where the ports would be on the left side.

Never mind rad too thick :/

Well it does fit with the fans on the rear side of the upright rad.




But it certainly doesn't work with the ports on the top rad to the right of the case and the ports on the upright rad on the top.




As you say I would have to have the upright rad with the ports on the bottom.

Do you mean upright where i had my res mounted originally?

I did think about that but i'm thinking there might not be enough clearance between it and the other rad. I'll give it a go though and see what happens.

Aside from the tight working space what's the problem with it being that high? It'd make my life easier as far as a drain port goes having the multi port rad on the bottom.
