Default WC Unit for Raven Case

Anyone have a Raven RV-01B case and use water cooling? Just curious on models that are relatively compatible with this particular case design.

What do you want to know is compatible with it?

I know it can fit a 360 rad externally if that helps.

Oops! Forgot to check in on my query.

Yeah, I want to know if there's any particular models that are incompatible with the case's design. For example, I was toying with the idea of trying a Corsair H50 or Coolit ECO cooler. Not sure what you mean by a 360 radiator. Link?

Both the H50 and the ECO should work fine in the RV01, as you just need to mount the unit's radiator on the case's 120mm exhaust fan (I was going to say rear exhaust, but that's not exactly so with this case ), in pretty much any orientation. If you're thinking about actually putting together a water cooling setup in the Raven (read: not a single enclosed unit), it looks like you'll need to mount your radiator externally though.

Thanks, Steers. That's the info I was looking for. I was wondering about the vertical exhaust fan vs. the rear radiator cut out that is designed into the case. I need to find some pics of WC setups with the Raven. Will fire Bing up for a look-see.

Looks like it's indeed possible to mount a triple rad on the back of the Raven, but I'm not sure how much modification is involved. Here's a picture from a Raven buildlog I found:

Your case came with 4 brackets to do this. I'm just looking around for ideas before I do my raven.
Signal, did you end up WC'ing?

Is it just me, or are there some very serious issues with this mount??

Namely: How do you fit the GPU's (specially the rally long ones like 5970/480/470/5890)??

The case comes with a bracket to keep longer GPU's in place
