The Build and Cooling

The CoolForce 2 comes with a decent instruction manual in both German and then English.  Yes, that's right, This German company somehow feels justified in putting the German language instructions before the English ones.  Whatever next?  You also get a bag-o-screws and a few cable ties along with an 8pin CPU power cable extension and a pair of coupled Sata data and power cables, one of which is straight and the other right angled.

The build was a straightforward process, with the MuduWand not getting noticeably in the way.  The generous 185mm of headroom mean our Havic 120 cooler has lots of room to breath in there.

As we thought, there's only a scant 30mm of space between the motherboard and the roof.  Nanoxia have allowed a small offset in the roof which does permit 120mm fan based rads to be fitted up there, but believe me when I say it's ridiculously tight.  Take a look at the image below right and you'll see what I mean.  Another coat of paint on that radiator or the standard height RAM and it wouldn't have fitted.  As you can imagine the off-set doesn't allow for the fitting of 140mm based rads, which is a shame as if they'd put just a few minutes of thought into it and increased the off-set this would have been a possibility.

It was fairly easy to do a decent wiring job at the rear, but we think we would have found ourselves wanting for a few more cable tie points.
