    Just got the a another board from sNiPeRbOb today and went to install it to get the Quad-Cruncher back online only to discover that the H50 doesn't fit in Thermaltake's V3 case.:cry::shadedshu I guess I will just use my lame V8 cooler.

    Because the the case provides no space between the top of the 120mm fan mounts. When I tried to mount it on the back the rad hits the top and wont line up with the fan holes.

    Well I was thinking of mounting it on the top (2nd pic) and then just mount a fan/shroud on the top outside of the case.

    :laugh: Don't worry. The 10,000 post mark is coming up. You can still make it. :p

    He just needs a bigger hammer. Remember if it doesn't fit, you just havn't hit it hard enough. :D

    Though, some reassembly may be required afterwords. :laugh:

    Mount it on the back of the case on the outside sideways with the tubes towards the side panel. Or mount on the top of the case like second pic with fan on the outside.

    what you could do T77 is put a fun on both sides of the rad as a push/pull then mount it to the case by a fan instead of straight to the case

    Not fair man. You got power beyond everyone else here and ensured that 10,000th post would be yours. This should be an infraction.:shadedshu:mad:

    Please don't strike me down, I believe in you:D

    Pfff, you're treating it as though I planned this in advance. I didn't even realize how close it was until 10 minutes prior and there were 3 posts left :laugh:

    Infraction? You've got the wrong guy, I was crucified and died for people's sins. You're looking for TheMailMan, he's the banstick dummy. :roll:

    New Zalman CNPS10X PERFORMA CPU cooler to replace the Xigmatek. Now I no longer see 100 degrees C on a 4GHz overclock. Tops out at 80 which cannot be bad for this furnace of a room.

    Looks good so far, any reason you don't have exhaust fans on top? Looks like they should fit in there fine...

    Maybe they have no impact? When I had my CM690, the top fans made a 1-2c difference at most ;)
