Hello.  I need a much better cooler for my new rig.  For the first time, I'm going to go water, and I'm curious what my options are for the Antec 900 case.  I plan to keep the cooler for as long as possible so I want a good one and willing to spend up to about 130 usd at the most.  Doing some research, I really like the results from the Thermaltake 3.0 but I'm not sure if it will fit in my case.

that 360 radiator won't fit that mid-tower without some gutting. Even than the end with the tubes has en extra inch needed for clearance. That case looks like a 240 rad design. looking online I haven't anyone with a triple rad in the front with that case.

 

easy way to tell is that thermaltake is 393mm and the front looks to be 17.5 inchs or 444.5mm. But that is the total height including the feet. Just eyeballing it, it will be a tight fit.

Here the review. http://www.overclock...iews/nzxt_h440/ I dinged it for not having a front bay and the USB header was partly blocked for my test motherboard. That was 2014. Now you can get Windows 10 installed with a flash drive. Windows 7 also if you are willing to play around with drivers.

This case is fine, and I'm not about to buy another case just to be able to use a 360mm over a 240mm.  I'll pick the best 240 I can find and it'll be about as good.  Thanks.
