Hey Guys,

I've had the v600FX case for a while now and have endlessly searched for a way to get an AIO water cooler in the case. The problem is that the case has a single 140mm outtake which is way to close to the 8-pin cpu connector, making it seemingly impossible to mount a radiator on the top, as shown here:

I was just about to give up and buy a different case for my water-cooling needs, when i came across this:

Somehow this Korean gentleman has managed to squeeze a H80 in this case. He has obviously used some kind of 140mm>>120mm adapter, but i have no idea how that has enabled him to fit the rad there without it obstructing the 8-pin? :s

I have searched Google endlessly for an answer to this, but have had no luck whatsoever.. So does anyone know how i can achieve this?
Thanks in advance :)

I suggest you drill your own set of 120mm layout mounting holes shifted slightly forward. Plug the cable in before you mount the radiator.

Btw. the CPU power connector might be in a different place on the build you linked to.
