Hey guys, sorry if this is the wrong forum section to post this question in but it seemed as good a place as any. I would like to get a WC setup for my pc and have seen many good reviews for this particular XSPC kit but I was wondering if it would fit inside of my HAF X and not interfere with my motherboard (Crosshair V).
If anybody on here is using this WC kit and case/mobo could you tell me if it works or not. My plan is to mount the radiator underneath the 2x 200mm fans on top and then install 3x 120mm CM Sickleflow fans underneath the radiator in a push configuration, but I am worried that they may rub against the VRM heatsink on top of the board? Any suggestions or advice? Thanks in advance!

Yes, this kit will fit the HAF X

As for the fan setup the way you are describing it I cannot answer that but if it were me I would remove the top case fans and then mount the RAD you should be fine with using 120mm fans in puss/pull or even just to make sure you can pick up 120mm x 12mm fans like these (http://www.frozencpu.com/products/9124/fan-570/Scythe_Kaze-Jyuni_Slim_Slip_Stream_120mm_x_12mm_Fan_-_2000_RPM_SY1212SL12H.html?tl=g36c15s972#blank)and then you will never bother your board, this will save you a considerable amount of spacing.

Well I went ahead and ordered the kit and also ordered some PrimoChill PrimoFlex PRO LRT Red tubing in 7/16'' as well as some PrimoChill ICE coolant. Hopefully I can install the kit shortly after Christmas as long as I don't mess anything up. This will be my first ever liquid cooling install so I hope I don't screw up haha. I'll make sure to take some pics of the install and post them onto here when it's complete.

I do have one question though..is it recommended to apply some sort of silicon sealant where the hose meets the base of the barb fittings to add a bit of extra security against leaks or is it not needed?

I always recommend people use compression fittings
