H500M Top Mount 280mm AIO Rad wont fit!!!

Recommended Posts

Building a new gaming rig.

halfway through my build Im finding out the the H500M case is not compatible with a top mount 280mm AIO.

My motherboard heatsink is preventing the radiator from being installed.

 

Asus ROG Strix Z390-E motherboard

Corsair Hydro Series H115i RGB PLATINUM 280mm Liquid CPU Cooler

 

I am so pissed I could spit fire, why would CM say its compatible when it is clearly NOT!

see pics

Anyone else have this issue, if so what did you do?

Why are you mounting the AIO like this. Just mount the radiator fans on top of the radiator (on the other side of the case chassis)

had the same issue, always had my fans below the radiator but I had to change it. But now i'm not sure I should keep them on exhaust and not change to intake so they can blow through the rad?

Its from the cheaper case H500P, it fits on the top and giving that extra hight. 


From what Coolermaster is saying, the H500P bracket will not fit the H500M because the screw mounting holes are placed differently.
Have you managed to fit it? How did you do it?
