Just ordered this case, is there enough room to top mount a push/pull H150i on the top of this case? I currently have a 500D RGB SE and was wondering if it's worth it to change from front mounted to top mounted when I swap cases. Thanks for the guide!

Thanks for making this guide, I was about to post a new topic but that is a very good guide to follow.

I’ve just got this case with a H150i and about to start my first PC build once I’m brave enough.

I was wondering about the front mount for the AIO, I was thinking about putting it on the top of the case but reading here you guys were saying the front is the best. What’s the disadvantage with top mounting if you are using static pressure to exhaust helped by natural heat rise?

I have three LL120 and two QL140 to put in, so was looking at side mounting the LL120 and exhausting at the back with one of the QL140.

Convection is extremely weak. Once you start installing fans in the case, they overpower it by several orders of magnitude, even at their lowest rated speed. You can basically ignore convection altogether.

The biggest disadvantage of a top exhaust is the radiator is going to be heated by the GPU, so your CPU will consistently run a few degrees hotter than a front intake or a top intake. By how much, will depend on your GPU of course. The 5000 being pretty well ventilated, the cooling performance hit will probably not be huge, and depending on what CPU you'll be cooling you will probably not care either.

Thanks for this.

CPU: 13600K

GPU: 7900 XTX

MB: MSI MPG Edge DDR4

I think I should be good to very good on temps, and I’m unlikely to really push stuff that hard.

My thinking was that the rad on the front or side would immediately heat up the cool air flowing into the rest of the case. Is there any consensus on pump longevity re: vertical/horizontal.

Could someone tell me what the dimensions of the PSU shroud window are?

Main reason i want a new case is because my Obsidian 750D does not support vertical GPU mount.
Bought a ASUS 6900XT LC at a very bad time (1999 euro, yes i know i was an idiot but i needed a new GPU back then)
And since i paid so much for that damn card i want at least to be able to see the RGB lighting that is on the bottom now.

I was first looking to buy a 7000x but now this one got my interrest (ok maybe bit smaller but the front looks awesome and better airflow).

Since i also have to replace my CX750F psu (i cant stand the coil whine anymore when my push my pc to the limit) i wanted to put a ASUS ROG THOR 1200P inside. I am wondering if the psu shroud window is big enough to see both the oled display and the ROG logo...

Dimensions of the PSU are: 

width 190 mm
depth 150 mm
height 86 mm
