Default 460x with h150i Pro

Hello all, this is the build I've been working on with the 460x case and h150i cooler. I really like both the case and the cooler. I decided to do a push/pull setup on the radiator using the SP 120 fans up front and a pair of the stock ML 120 fans on the back side. I couldn't fit the 3rd one in the middle because of the length of the ASUS Strix graphics card but it still worked out well. I eliminated the hard drive cage and removed some material from the PSU shroud to get the extra room for the lower pull fan. As you can see, I've added some custom made LED edge lit Acrylic pieces beside the PSU shroud and to the right of the motherboard (to hide the metal stamping). I think in the future I may make a few more acrylic pieces, possibly some direct print patterning on the glass and LL 120 RGB fans when I have the extra cash. I hope you like it.

Thanks for looking!

Hi :)
I would like to make the same thing, I have the 460x rgb case and I'm interresting into buy the h150i to make a push pull setup on the front. Where did you put your hard drive if you have removed the hdd cage ? I guess that I can't install the fan on the bottom if I don't cut a part of the PSU shroud and removed HDD case ? I think that I can only install 5 fans, does it will work well ? :(
Thank for your help

I removed the cage and used double sided VHB tape to mount the hard drive to the bottom of the case. I mounted the hard drive on it's back to make it easier to plug in the connectors. The other more expensive option would be to use only SSD drives or M.2's. Yes, you'll have to cut the PSU shroud or leave the front part off to to fit the lower second fan. Good luck!
