280mm Kraken G12 Top Mount in Air 540?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Been thinking of getting an Air 540 but I'm a bit concerned on whether it would be able to mount a 280mm AIO for a Kraken G12 on top alongside my Swiftech H360X3. I'm not sure whether the tubes for the AIO would fit due to the pump/reservoir of the H360X3.

You want to mount an AIO in a custom loop rig?  I’m confused.


Life is like a bowl of chocolates: there are all these little crinkly paper cups everywhere.

The H360x3 is an expandable AIO, similar to the EK Phoenix lineup. Currently it's only on my CPU as I already had a G12 on my 1080 before I got it.

280 fits just fine. But may have to put the tubes of the 360 on the bottom. 
I assume it’s a thin rad the 280 so shouldn’t be a big deal. I’ve ran a 360 and 280 on both of my 540’s.
