Air will definately work. But the whole point here was water cooling and silence. I have not been able to fire up this case as there is no power supply in int yet (it's not my case) so I don't know how loud that big fan is going to be.

rads

It seems that the 120.2 would be high also. check out Danger Den's heater cores. The double is 11 inches high. with the 1 inch lip at the bottom that may be the closest match. If the outlets will line up right. then again, if you don't fill all the external bay spaces then the outlets could run righ...

Antec 900

Ok. The 900 has a bay that measures 10 inches high and 5 3/4 inches across. At the very bottom of the case is a lip that measures 1 inch in heigth. I think you could run the hoses through there. One obstacle in the way is the front bezel. It is pretty thick and consists of two pieces that are screwe...

Fin spacing

Food for thought. I thought I'd seen somewhere that the Ninja air cooled heatsink worked so well because teh fins were more widely spaced than other models. but those are also usually set up as "push" systems when used with a fan. Maybe I'll rework my system this weekend. I'm using a push system wit...

Antec 900

I just happen to have a 900 at my "office" right now. What are the dimensions of the rad you intend to use? I'll post the dimensions of the front of the case tomorrow. And look at the feasibility of the whole thing.

radiatior mounting

Mounting a rad in front of the two 120mm fans on an Antec 900 would be sweet! Fresh cold air for the major cooling and still have positive airflow through out the case to help keep mb and hard drives cool.

I like it!

fin spacing

I know this is old but there is so much goodness here. If more fins on the rad equals better cooling then how would fewer fins with more spacing (to let air through more easily) work out? Wouldn't it be quieter with the air not being forced into smaller spaces? Or possibly even run a lower rpm to ma...

Still have this? If so then I want it. I have Paypal but, I'm overseas on US Marine base. Will need a customs form in order to ship it to me. USPS works fine. I'll pay for Express mail.

My bad, didn't look at the post date.

have you considered a 27 inch monitor? I despaired of the 30 inchers and finally went with a Samsung 275T. It's 27 inch widescreen with a resolution of 1920x1200. It is working out very nice for me!
