Default Some 220T advise please.

Hi. I'm looking for a bit of advise , I'm planning on a build using the Corsair icue 220t , Corsair vengeance pro rgb RAM and a hydro H100i 240 AiO, Asus Rog strix B540 gaming F motherboard. I'm also using a gigabyte 2070 super which is 286.5mm long. Can you confirm if there is enough clearance to fit the AiO either at the front or the top. I obviously don't want it hitting the GPU or RAM. If not could you tell me what the max GPU length is with a AiO is fitted. Or alternative mounting or components for example would the hydro 120mm fit on the back. Or just forget about a AiO and use the stock prism . Thank you.

I think the top is a risk. The 220T is like a lot of recent cases -- a mid tower with a shallow top. Others have reported RAM collisions with taller modules like Vengeance Pro or certainly Dominators. I think the motherboard top ATX 4/8 plug and VRM heat shield are probably even more insurmountable.

I don't see a lot of argument against front mounting in a case with no drives to block flow and a clear exit path right out the top. The product page has an illustration of this and a 240 or 360mm radiator would be a good choice. Putting a 120mm in the rear slot if likely to be substantially less successful, both in drastically reducing radiator surface area and putting in in the path of the GPU waste heat (rear exhaust). Best results are going to be front intake.

Now the real trick is max GPU length is listed at 300mm, but presumably this includes fans only. Less 30mm for the radiator puts it at 270mm and there is the quaundry indeed. Unfortunately, I don't always trust the maximum GPU length listed. What we really need here is a 220T owner to take a measurement. Hopefully a few will see this.

i've done alot of research and watched every case build & video/picture of this case. unfortunately the RGB pro RAM will NOT fit up top with the AIO. your Ram should be 34MM high or less to fit (the RGB pro ram is 54MM high. i went with the white Corsair Vengeance LPX 32gb instead of the RGB pro and i'll be building about 2 weeks from now. hope this helps! it sucks but everything else in my build is RGB and the Low profile LPX ram i got is white so it should match fine plus it was a little cheaper.

for anyone interested, the GPU fit, just, but i think it looks good, works well and temps are all very low .
