My System Specs


Do you want an actual stand-off mount (like mine which is the first picture in the case thread.... :) ) or would you prefer a top mount directly attached to the top of the case? (Babr did this with a 240 on his antec case).

If you are planning on direct top mount vice a stand off on you just need to cut the top of the case to match the fans you are going to use and then direct the barbs downwards into the case.

If you want to do a stand-off mount like I did, I would suggest making the holes for the hoses larger than the hose and then using some form of grommet so that the hose isn't directly in contact with the metal.

As far as a guide goes..... Babr did a pretty good build log for his direct top mount, and you might be able to dig my build log up over at DIY-Street (same username.... :) ).
