It's an XSPC RS360, and its fans are 33 mm from the motherboard-tray panel.
A thicker rad would fit, sort of, and yeah it would clear the motherboard (as long as your motherboard's cables go off the edge of the board and not "up"), but you'd quickly start getting severely limited for video-card space. And the front plate that holds the 120 mm fans swings open like a door; attaching too much thickness to it will prevent it from opening. I had a heck of a time getting it reinstalled with only ~60 mm total of radiator + fans attached.so a thicker radiator could be used? would it clear the motherboard cables if it overlaps the motherboard?
can anyone confirm which radiators will fit this case? (without mod or losing any functionality?)
Currently, AU$570 = US$561. So, yes, rather poorly.Does that Australian price compare poorly to my $360 USD Delivered?

Personally I can only confirm that the Swiftech MCR320 and XSPC RS360 both fit. However, the MCR320 doesn't fit very well; it is an extremely cozy fit and it also prevents reattachment of the front dust filters. The RS360 fits much better.
If I were keeping this case I would probably get Lian-Li's PT-AF12-2B filters for the front, and install them "sideways" to make for easy access. As it is now I will have to remove the middle radiator fan in order to swing that front plate open far enough. (Sharp-eyed readers may have noticed the different attachment hardware I put on that fan—that's why.)
The GTX 460 is spec'ed at 8¼" (210 mm). Lian-Li claims the X900 offers video-card space of 305 mm with the stock fans, so 330 mm total. With a GTX 460, "thick" radiator, and standard fans, you'd have 330 210 54 25 = 21 mm = 0.83" of space left over.i am planning on getting 2x GTX 460s (SLI)... look at the dimensions on those cards.
My Swiftech MCR320 is 410 mm, and it fit barely (which is why I got the XSPC RS360 to replace it). It's not out of the question, but neither is it optimal. I did have to attach it with the fittings at the bottom, and push the rad as far "up" as the screw-holes play would allow, to get it to fit.looks like it is a tight fit up top with the fittings. are 410 mm long triple 120 rads out of the question?
A wide radiator will prevent the fan filters from reattaching to the mounting plate... if you're attaching the radiator directly to the plate, like I did for fans in "pull". If you attach the fans to the mounting plate for "push" then it wouldn't matter.PS what is it that wider rads block?
I love the X900 but it is a little to big for me and since I actually have no use for the three 5,25'' bay's or the four additional 3,5'' bay's wich are also in the 'ZONE 1' I came up with this...
What do you think? That would make it alot smaller. And you would not have these ugly ODD bezel's.
... but unfortunately I'm no one to mod on a case like this so all I can do is to hope Lian Li brings a mini X900 like this.
296 CAD Now for the Red Brushed Aluminum.
I may replace my 800D with it.
Bumping an old thread. I hope to get a reply.

Did you have to take off the rubber pads inbetween the back﻿ exhaust fan and grille to install that H70? I'm considering on buying this case with H80 Are H70 and the screws long enough to install the radiator with the rubber pads on ?
Would H80 fit no problem ?
