Core X9 Radiator Placement Help and Space Limits


Recommended Posts

Okay I need to keep the front Optical bays so top mounting is out.


I want to mount a single 480 on the left side of the bottom I want to use the AlphaCool NexXxoS Monsta which is 86MM thick with push pull SP 120 Fans which are 25Mm thick can anyone tell me if there is enough room for that? with the fans or do I need to switch to just push or get a thinner radiator?


It looks like I could get a 120x2 on the front panel and still keep the Optical bays can anyone confirm that?

We are providing some of the dimensions in the first post of this thread here: http://community.thermaltake.com/index.php?/topic/1092-core-x-series/


The left side is designated for the PSU but you can change that and install the PSU on the right side. That leaves you with around 150mm of space for your radiator and fans.

You will need to think about HDD placement, though.


The front fits two 120mm fans without losing a 5.25" bay but for a 240mm radiator you would probably have to remove the bottom 5.25" bay to make it fit.
