    My Nemesis GTX 280 is too wide for the top of my case so need a slimmer EK or Alphacool 280 or even a 360/240; or something els? I can't use itiso openoto offers... Can include two almost new Phanteks PH-F140MP High Static Pressure fans.
    $60 shipped?

    LMK what you have.

    Can I clarify what you mean when you say 'wide'? Because I think you mean 'thick'. Unless you're talking about a very tiny amount, one 280 rad is going to be about the same width as another, and I'm having a hard time imagining a case that would fit one 280 but not another in terms of width. Thickness, on the other hand, makes complete sense considering running cables to upper motherboard connectors.

    Lian li PC-011. Only spot for the 280 is up top and the Black Ice Nemesis GTX line is actually a little too wide. The sides are not flat, they curve out.

    Pretty sure a 280 GTS won’t fit either, at least didn’t in my O-11

    Sucks as this rad is great for a 280, keeps up with a lot of 360 rads....

    Welp, my biggest suggestion to you then would be to make it easier for people to help you; i.e. determine your clearance and find a few 280s that fall within it and ask for them. Otherwise you are basically asking people to look up the width dimension on the 280 BIGTX, and then measure or look up the width of their own rads in order to know if it might work because it's less than the GTX. Then, assuming anyone bothers to do this, they'll ask you if XYZ will work because it's thinner, and you'll have to answer them.

    Nemesis GTX 280 is 153mm overall width.

    As far as I can tell, Alphacool and EK all work. Also any 240 will definitely work

    No one needs the best 280 rad?

    I recently took out my XSPC EX240 radiator to play around with a clc. The EX is a bit different - thinner and for lower speed fans, but if you're interested I can post pics. The wear is largely contained to the paint rubbing off near the screwholes on the "G1/4 inlet" side of the radiator.
