Hey all

Im going to be replaceing my ThermoChill PA 120.3 with a Quad rad but i need to know which ones fit.

I cant use a PSU mount on mine because with the fans the PA is so thick the PSU hardly has 1mm at the side so its squashed up against the case wall.
This annoys me greatly because i have a nice shiny back plate i want to use!

SO i want a Quad rad that is "thinner" then the PA and gives the same performance and i can fit it in the same place.

What we got out there that will do it?
I saw this on ebay... will it work?

ThermoChill PA120.4 in my TJ07 (only real shot of it in the machine, I'm afraid) ( I realise you can't use the PA, but it shows they fit, which might help)

yea i know, Im finding it hard to understand aswell....

Its a 25mm fan with a 3mm rad bracket and a PC120.3... about 1mm between PSU and rad and the PSU is shoved right in the corner :/

Its sorted now anyway, I have an Alphacool XT45 Quad rad on its way, pure copper design and its only 45mm thick vs the 60mm thick PA120.3
Should allow the use of a bulkhead in the mid plate aswell

got a nice new Alphacool rad.

Upon shakeing it it seems to make a noise, as if something (mabey metal shaveings) are bounceing around inside..

last thing i want is that sort of thing getting into my block.

Anyone know a good way of flushing thing type of thing?

I was going to hook it up to a high pressure tap in my house and just turn it on and off a few times to see if it would flush any crap out, But wet filings would most likely stick to the walls and "sound" gone untill dry again.

Anyone got any ideas?
