Will a Corsair H50, or Cool-it Eco Radiator fit into one of the top 120 MM fan areas in a NZXT vulcan case? If not, what If I were to put the fan first, and mount the radiator under it?

"Right after posting this I came upoun the NZXT vulcan, which is perfect for what I am getting."

it would fit the HAF 932 perfectly. the vulcan is a compact case usually meant for portability ( for such things as lan parties) if it would fit the vulcan, it will be quite the tight fit. or at least from what i seen on the inside of the case.

Note: i do believe it would fit at 922 as well.

Yeah but, I don't like cases with unpainted interiors, If the H50 really wont fit the vulcan, I will just get the NZXT hades.

its always a nice idea to take the time to paint the inside of your case, it really improves the overall look. the HAF models are very nice cases and i would highly recommend them, and to paint the inside black by yourself is not hard and only takes a day or two, especially since disassembly of these cases are a breeze (atleast the 932)

That is a pretty good Idea, what would you reccomend using to paint the interiors?, I do Like the HAF 932, and 922, but, wasn't going to get them because of the unpainted interiors.

all you need to do is sand the case a little bit to help the paint stick, blow off all the dust with compressed air, and put about 3-4 coats of generic black spray paint on it.
i used "Color-Palace" brand spray paint at my local hardware store and it works quite well. you can also put maybe 1-2 coats of clear coat on the case to help protect the black but its optional.
make sure to let it dry before moving things around or the paint will flake off really easy (usually when it stops sticking to the table its good)
this is the outcome i got with my buddies HAF 932


oh look, theres an example of the H50 being used in the 932 like we were talking about above, although i had to turn the radiator over to where the hoses are on bottom because the pump wasnt getting water for some reason with the hoses up top.

That looks really good, I will just get the HAF 932, and paint the interiors, thanks for the Idea and help.
There is also a version of the HAF 932 with a painted interior that I just founf when looking at the price of the 932, but Its a full window side panel, and no Fan, so, I might not get that one.
