Hey guys anyone have the antec 1200? I'm trying to find one that will fit inside the case at the back where the two 120's are, anyone have any ideas? I wanted to put the boneville heatercore on it, but its about half an inch to wide to fit inside.

Ok, I have tried to mount on the rear 120mm fans but ran into issues closing the side panel, clearance from the top, as well as the spacing of the rear 120's from each other, they are not right on top of each other but rather have a small gap. Instead, I mounted it directly beneath the 200mm top fan since there is 10x more room on top than on the back.







Using a simple "L" bracket from home depot I was able to secure it to the motherboard tray and then using the existing holes drilled into the radiator for 120mm fans I mounted it to the L brackets.

Very sturdy, very simple.

Well you may have to mount it outside on the back of the case or on the top like RPM666 did. Not sure which one will give you better performance. Both of them is getting hot air sucked into the rad
And heat rises...

yeah but now your running into problems if that top fan doesn't circulate air faster than your fans on the rad, then your just going to recycle hot air.

I woudln't mind an external box, but I just wanted something all in one that is easier to carry around, the thing is probally close to 40 some pounds, so I dont wanna lug a box around too haha

To mount a radiator externally you'll just want to get a "radbox" - swiftech makes 'em - and they can hold their weight.





And it does make it super heavy of a computer - but as long as you don't mount it up on a shelf you'll be OK




Back to the future in da house! lol

What do you have holding up that triple rad in the back? I was thinking of doing it that way if I couldnt find a rad to fit inside on the back 120's

It can hold a 480 rad fully loaded so I suppose it should be able to.

For starters, get the triple rad from swiftech - it's $50. Cheap, versatile, and does a pretty good job. The double rad alone will cool a CPU/NB/GPU just fine, but I personally enjoy a little overkill

Well most time you don't get a full-tower and watercooling to be carrying around everywhere
