300R and the H100


Recommended Posts

Since the case has a very limited roof clearance, we cannot really say 100% - On some MB it might work but i guessing most of them will have the clearance issue.


I just swapped all my parts into my new 300R, and there is only around 1cm of clearance after installing two 140mm fans at the top (my motherboard is an ASUS P8Z68-V Pro and both fans are 25mm thick), so there's no way you can fit the H100 inside the case (since the radiator is 27mm and the fans are 25mm). Here's a picture of my build, as well as a close-up of the clearance left at the top (click for full-size):






Also, this case is amazing for air-flow with two 140mm's in the front and two on the side panel - my CPU never goes over 60C now (i7 2600k @ 4.0 GHz), down from 65C in my Fractal Core 3000 with a similar fan configuration.

I came across this great looking mod by "Arrant" at Overclock.net




where he successfully positioned the H11 by the front




Here's a link to the entire mod thread


I'm looking to do the same thing.
