Hardware compatibility issue

#1SuikiPosted 2/14/2014 8:02:39 AM
I want to get a liquid cooler for my PC, and soon, but I'm having doubts about what I can and can't do.

What I want to do is install a 240/280mm radiator inside my computer case (which is the Cooler Master HAF XM), in a push/pull configuration. I currently have two, 200mm fans installed right now, and want to put the radiator and its included fans inside the case.

The thickness of the 240mm rad I'm looking at, with its fans on, is 54mm. The thickness of the 280mm rad, with its fans, is 55.5 mm.

So is it possible? I really want the higher surface area and heat dispersion of a larger radiator, but if I cannot fit it inside while keeping my two 200 mm fans, I will grudgingly seek a smaller, 140 or 120 mm radiator cooler.

You might better off on cooler master website and ask in there forums since more people should have the case.
