Thanks Knud! I guess I'll probably have to be happy with air cooling, since I don't really have the tools for modding. The Zalman cnps8900 extreme gets pretty good results for being low profile. If that doesn't work, perhaps I can find a way to stick the GPU rad on the side. Supposedly it's less than 1" thick, but I guess I'll find out when it arrives tomorrow.
Would it be possible to mount a 120mm radiator/fan combo on the hdd side mount of the elite 130? I was hoping to use an R9 295x2 in the case, which would use up a 120mm cooling slot for its attached water cooling loop and leave the cpu without water cooling unless there is room for a second rad. Does anyone know if this is possible?
