Yeah, performance may vary. But, in the end, it's practically the same. And, since I already had these two 120mm Black Ice rads layng around I thought I would use them. And the space between them really came in helpful when it was time to hide some cables, and it doesn't affect the airflow.Thank you for the image, that should help a lot
Not sure about the two separate rads performing better, everything I've seen leads me to think its the other way around (assuming both types of rad are the same thickness and fin density).
It will fit. The H100 is 275mm long. I have a 279mm EK radiator in the front of my V351 (very tight fit, 1mm clearance between each side panel). See here for some pics in my worklog: http://forums.overclockers.com.au/showthread.php?t=947398With the Corsair H100 coming out, do you think the 240 front rad grill will fit? appears to be about 5mm shy of the width of the 350 and 351. Can't wait for this thing to be modded in.
I wonder if it could be as easy as getting those same brackets, drilling out the front bracket. and riveting that H100 into the the same spot. Looks pretty much like what you did. Only without the whole setup. Hrmmm.. Could also do a push pull as well. Do you have your setup exhausting out the front?It will fit. The H100 is 275mm long.

its a pretty tight fit and i had that same issue. i was able to stuff the cables between the two drives and that gave me enough space to pull it off
i bought this v351 case used so there wasnt a manual inside, but im having trouble fitting the back fan.
the sata cabe blocks it so i dont have enough space.
i must be doing something wrong...
for the cage doors, i dont know what to tell you. perhaps they are just loose from whatever the previous owner did. mine stay in easily but mine was new when i got it. you could try bending them outward a bit. that may help.thank you for the response tristan! i will try again later tonight.
i have a few more questions though...
is there a way to make the drive cage doors stay on better? im not using any cd drives or floppy drives. the drive cage doors are only secured by aligning them with the balls but a simple push can knock them out of its place.
also, this was probably discussed before but im having trouble finding an answer, how can i have better airflow in the case without modifying the interior design and without cutting up my case. the heat coming from my cpu seems to just sit and linger there...
my cpu fan
(when i got this case, the back exhaust fan was actually blowing air into my hard drives. shouldnt it be the other way around?
