Question Obsidian series 1000d fan and radiator?

I have recently been looking at the obsidian series and 1000d and saw all of the water cooling options. After watching YouTube videos, I have noticed that they typically have been putting the two 480mm and 420mm radiators in, but leave the back with just normal fans, so it prompts me to ask this question. Can a 240mm radiator still fit in the back of the case with the 420mm up top? Also, is it just preferred to have fans in with the mix of radiators? Like would all radiators and no fans be possibly hendering me?

Thank you

In theory, yes. I am waiting on parts to arrive in the mail now and then I will be able to confirm for you. Be cognizant of the radiator thickness.

You can do that. I almost did it myself. But honestly, with 2 x 480 and a 420, a 240 is not needed. Additionally, it is nice to have the two case fans in the back to exhaust the heat out when inside gets warm. I run my fans, 16, at 700RPM, so it stays quiet. The case fans really help exhaust the extra heat. Sadly, it does not support 2 x 140 MM fans. At least not LL140s without modding. 1 of many disappointments with the case.

I am also a fixed rpm type of guy.. I also run around the 700rpm Mark. Moves enough air in the 1000d to keep things in check..,,
