Default A question re: Crystal 570X

Hi all, first post here so please be gentle :D

Looking at building my next box with lots of Corsair hardware but came across something that I've not been able to figure out.

Based on the information from the product page, the Crystal 570X *supposedly* works with the H110i which as a 280mm radiator. But the spec page shows that it only supports 120mm/240mm/360mm radiator. A review site had built one with a 280mm and while it looks like it fits, one of the radiator fan seems to get in the way of the motherboard (which I chalk that one up being the PRM shroud being too large on the board).

Has anyone here built a system with the 570X + either a H110i or H115i? Did you run into any clearance issues? was it mounted on the front of the case or the top? Appreciate any input I can get.

motherboard/ram/fan/rad dependent!


hi dude... i have this case my self....

240 rads up top no worries.... but 280mm rads and fans can run into clearance issues with the VRM heat sinks and/or ram modules....

but imho.. if your getting a 570x.. H150i all the way!.. match made in heaven...

Nice build Zotty! I'm looking to build something similar, the 570x case and the H150i Cooler. Did you have any clearance issues with the pump hoses next to the leftmost RAM stick? That is the only concern I have about the H150i.
