Greetings fellow builders,

I am currently looking at the P400A after watching Gamer Nexus' review on it. As someone who currently owns a Core V71 case, I need to downsize. In my current rig I run the Corsair Hydro H100i for my 4790K, https://www.pccasegear.com/products/22307 (this one). I went on the Phanteks website to see what radiators it supports, for the front it can support 2 x 140mm fans with a 280mm radiator. http://www.phanteks.com/Eclipse-P400A.html (scroll down and you'll see the rad support)

However, my H100i has 2 x 120mm with a 275mm radiator. To the point, will my H100i fit in the front? I am aware that I will have remove fans and place them elsewhere and what not. Its been a while since I've done a build/rebuild a computer, will greatly appreciate any help :)
 
I have a P400, bought the A mesh front not long ago...made the case WAAAAY better. Anyway, I have the Deepcool Castle 240EX in mine. It's got 120 fans. Shouldn't have any issue front mounting on push if your hoses are long enough. I found the top mount location to be too small for the radiator.

Sweet thanks for the response. Its odd cause it mentions it being a 240mm rad, yet in the spec sheet it says 275mm. I think the tubing length shouldn't be a problem, was more concerned on whether a few millimetres here and there would impact installing the cooler.
 
The "240" is in relation to it's mounting point size not exact dimensions. The case will accept up to ~180 width I think it is, in two of the (upper) slots. The lowest one is good for helping cool the basement/drives if needed and in my case I use for a small push of fresh air from the front to the GPU fans.
