    Hi guys, I want to get a 120.2mm radiator but only have 80mm fans holes at the back of my case. this is the only place i can mount it.

    I would love to get a swiftech rad mount but the only place that sells it in the uk charges £7.50 for delivery which for an £11 item is just stupid.

    So is there any other way of mounting a 120.2 rad in 80mm holes?

    How about 80mm to 120mm fan adapters, get a sturdy metal one. Might be a possibility.

    Cut the case and bolt them in properly. 80-120mm fan adapters for a rad mount is defeating the object, surely?

    Or sell the existing case and buy one with the appropriately sized holes.

    mount the rad in the top of the case. Thats what I did, got a nice radiator grill on the outside, covers up and slightly wobbly cut lines, and it looks great.
