Any Case Where I Can Mount a Rear 240mm Rad?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I am working on custom loop design without a front rad. I want to run a rear and top rad instead. Plenty of cases offer top rad compatibility for what I want to do, but so far I have not found a single case that will let me run bigger than a 120mm rad in the back.

 

Does any such case currently exist?

Yeah, but I am not sure just a single 120mm rad will be enough cooling for a rtx 3080.

Nah. Dont think so. But take a look at the Lian Li o-11 (dynamic) there is a possibility to mount one in the top, one at the bottom and if you want one in the front looking towards the sidepanels. (All 360mm)

pretty sure some of the very large/wide cases support 140mm rads in the back but such a large back panel that youd be able to fit a larger rad is unlikely.

Buy pc with bottom fan grill capable of supporting 240+ rad, flip case upside down.
You're gonna have a really tough time finding a case that can do what you ask because interference with mobo I/O and graphics cards.

I think some SUPER tower PC cases have 2x120mm exhaust.

I'm sure the Corsair 1000d has room for a 240mm at the back

There are definitely cases that support 240mm rads in the back. But, you have to expect them to be huge.
