I wanted to buy this radiator soon to be an upgrade for a XSPC Raystorm 750 RS240. The thing is that I have a HAF 912 so is there a way I can get it to fit?

More about : giant radiator fit lol

Internally probably not without issues, you will most likely have to externally mount the radiator. You could mount the radiator on the top of the case and have some push fans on the inside of the case.
You'l need some pretty strong fans for that rad as well.

Would some corsair SP120 fans work (in p/p)?

I know some of the Corsair fans are optimized for high pressure, but im on a slow connecton right now so I cant check if those are the ones. If you already have hem, I would keep them on your current 240mm rad (maybe mount it off the back of the case) and get top notch fans for this one. Silverstone Air Penetrators, Noctua NF-12's or Gentle Typhoons (not sure which model) come to mind.

Yes, but don't think about upgrading until you have seen the performance of the RS240!

What's the performance like?

How should I know? There are many factors to that.

Compare it to my Cooler Master TPC 812.

How much hight do you have under the optical bays if you remove the hard drive tray.

My HAF 912 has 4 bays and I used 2 up so far although I can take another one out because the seconds one is kinda useless :) . Other then that like 5 bays tall and 6 if I removed the one dvd drive.

That space in front is where I would look at mounting that Big rad.
What are you cooling CPU/GPU

I'm looking to cool my 7970 and then overclocking it but for now just my CPU.

I've owned the HAF 912 before and all I can say is there is very little room in the front. Unlike your monsterous 600T! ;)

He needs more research and you need to upgrade to a P4.
