questions about the H115I and H150I in relation to a 780T

Hi All, so I have two questions regarding some AIO coolers and the 780T

 

Option 1

 

so my best case option is to mount a Corsair iCUE H115i RGB Pro XT 63 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler in the front of the PC with the hoses at the bottom.

 

I currently have two 120mm fans in the base and two 140 mm fans in the front. All of these are intake fans.

 

Now I noticed the mounting points for the front 140 fans that side inside a Fan area in the front of the case (not inside the case but in there own little cubby if that makes sense…) and the mounting points for an AIO cooler are different.

 

Now I’ve ben informed that the hoses on the “pro” (not sure if the corsair rep is referring to this pro or just, a pro.) is 17 inches long.

 

Now here’s what I want to do. Having looked at my case I would like to mount the cooler in the front with fans on both sides. Since the mounting holes on the 780T for radiators is indented. (there’s a dip exterior side for screws so they don’t interfere with fans.) I should still be able to have my exterior LL fans and have the interior fans in the following configuration.

 

Pull fans - AIO radiator – push fans – exterior panel to fan cubby – LL fans in cubby

 

So here’s my worries, if I put it in this configuration would it be beneficial or detrimental to the radiator and would the hoses / tubes be long enough to reach my CPU. (the 780T is massive)

 

I have a Gigabyte X399 AORUS XTREME EATX sTR4 Motherboard with Corsair Vengeance RGB 32 GB (8 x 8 GB) DDR4-2666 CL16 Memory, so the ram is tall.

 

Also I have two EVGA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER 8 GB BLACK GAMING Video Card Video Card in NV link so the tubes will have to make an S bend.

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

My second option would be easier but less preferable

 

I have 3 120MM LL fans in the top in an outward configuration and I do have a Blue-ray drive in the front of the PC.

 

I could try mounting a 360 AIO radiator in the top with two fans pushing air in to the radiator and 3 pulling air out. Is that a viable option?

 

I will admit I’m not to keep on this option as I have an open shroud GPUs that would be pushing hot air upwards.

This might not work if the holes aren't lining up with the radiator in the front.

For the top, you'd have to have the tubes towards the rear of the case, meaning you'll need to remove the rear fan for clearance. I'd recommend reaching out to Support so they can check further for fitment.

the holes to fit the radiator start near the top of the front. just under the 5.25 bays. meanwhile the holes to fit the front mounted case fans are start near the bottom.

(ignore the thick cable, that's getting removed on my next edit of the system.)

 

also yes if I go for the top mount I will orient it with the hoses at the read, my question was more aimed at having 2 intake fans and 3 outtake fans on the H150I, the rear fan can be lowered.
