I am thinking about buying a Corsair 350D and would like a custom water cooling kit.
The kits i am consodering are XSPC Raystorm EX/AX 240.
My question is will the 240mm RAD block the 5.25 drive bays so the Pump/Res wont fit?

Removing them would be utterly pointless considering the Pump/Res Combo has to be slotted into 2 5.25 inch drive bays.
Next time before answering at least have some knowledge onwhat i am talking about otherwise your answers are pointless and uneducated

I have a h100i installed (240mm), and it takes up the top of the two 5.25 inch drive bays so it is unusable.

but this Pump/Res combo is quite short, how far into the 5.25 inch bay does your h100i extend?

how about getting a separate pump/reservoir, like a tube reservoir and a pump you can put under. I don't have a 350d so I can't tell, but you might be able to put it next to your motherboard. If not you can put it in the hard drive area and put the hard drives in the optical bays.

I literally just sold the system yesterday so I can't measure for you, but here is a picture to give you an idea of how much room is left. You can see how far out the dvd drive is sticking out for a reference. I looked up the stats and that dvd drive is 8 inches long.

Yeah i was thinking that but i really want to stick to a kit, the idea of having to buy everything seperatly frightens me...
