Has anyone fit a H115i 280mm radiator into a MasterBox Q300L?

I have someone in my area selling a used H115i 280mm for a decent price and my case specs say that it only supports a 240mm radiator.

I've done some measurements and they seem to stack up:

165.1mm X 330.2mm X 38.1mm approx. with a little bit of added wiggle room
VS the dimensions of the radiator
140mm x 312mm x 26mm

I don't know if that's with the 140mm fans installed or not.

It's going to be a tight fit regardless but I was wondering if anyone tried it already or knows someone who has. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks a lot.

Yea someone is selling a used one in my area and I'd like it to be able to overclock my Ryzen 1700. He's selling it for $70 and I'm gonna offer him $60 if it's something I can even use.

ryzen is isn't that hot tbh, your 280mm rad of overkill but if it's for a cheap price go for it

I may be wrong.

Yea I'd like to reach 4.0Ghz is all and say that I have water cooling. I also plan on upgrading eventually and I can use the water cooler with whatever I upgrade to.

Officially it only supports a 240mm rad, but i did find one example where someone fit a 280mm rad in it. You are only able to fit the 4 middle screws to hold the rad to the case though.

That is actually such a nice looking build I have to say, thanks for finding it.

Yea I saw that its only officially 240mm, but after measuring I found that theoretically it could fit a 280mm rad just fine, it also has holes in the front for two 140mm fans so if the rad isn't much bigger than the fans it should work. I decided to pull the trigger and buy it, and it fits fine I just needed to move the power switch/front USB and Audio to the front/top orientation that the case allows. Kind if a hassle as I needed to unplug everything before I could move it but it was worth it and its cool that this little case can even do that for how cheap it is.

I'm waiting on the correct bracket before I fully install it and I'll try to get some pictures taken.

Shjt! That person made the masterbox look good! That looks like glass too, not the acrylic window it comes with.
