92mm AIO was created by Vampire
Hi guys! I have a pc that only has 92mm fan mounts and I am not satisfied with the cooling of my TX3 that I curently have installed. So my question is, is there an AIO that has a 92mm radiator?

Hi and welcome to the board!

Well, the standard fan size for a pre-build AIO is 120mm.
You build a custiom one with a 92mm radiator OR (what I don't recommend) mount a 92mm fan to a bigger radiator and run it like this.
depends on your system specs.

BTW
What's your case modell and sys specs?

I have an old HP chassi that I have built a sleeper in.
The specs are:
CPU: AMD Athlon X4 750K
MOBO: MSI FM2-A75MA-E35
RAM: Corsair Vengence 8GB 1600Mhz
GPU: ASUS Strix GTX 960 4GB

The only way I can install a 120mm fan or rad is if I custom mount in on the bottom of the case since I want it to look original from the outside

ok, that explains why only 92 mm.
I guess there isn't enough space for a bigger aircooler than the TX3 either, is it?

you could try using a fan adaptor, there are some available on ebay or amazon.
but I don't know if they are strong enough to hold a fan PLUS radiator...
maybe you need to reinforce the mounting holes with small washers (bricka ?).

Welcome to the forum.

this is an extreme case, but something similar could be used...


James also found a small AIO that fits in an optical drive bay but I suppose that's not ideal to retain the sleeper pc look :-(

would love to see some pics of your sleeper.

Yeah it would ruin the sleeper look that I am going for.

Here are some pictures of it.

is there enough room to physically fit a 120mm radiator where that front fan is? if so you could remove the fan, cut a 120mm panel out to aid air flow and mount a rad in there.

or a nice stealth look would be mount it on the side panel behind a nice black fan grill, only problem is you need to remove the rad each time you want to completely remove the side panel.

love the case, ideal base for a sleeper, and nice to see the P4HT and WinXP stickers retained :cheer:

If there is enough space for a 120mm fan in the front, you can use a converter like this one to fit a 120mm fan + rad to a 92mm bay.
(that's what I would do)

120mm to 80/92mm converter

PS
Very nice sleeper build, looks fantastic and original.

Yeah I think that the that case is what most people would think about if someone said old HP computer, that is why I chose it :dry:
Ofcourse I kept the stickers on ;)

that hardware combo sounds really great and is quite powerfull AND not too expensive, DDR4 is around 150 to 180€ for 16 GB of DDR3000.

Ryzen 3 is a really interesting option given the low pricing, at least in the UK its a good chunk cheaper than a Dual core i3!

As Nik says, its just the move to DDR4 that adds a bit onto the price, my last few builds I've re used my memory, I suppose I've had my moneys worth!

Yeah the ram here in sweden is quite expensive, that is the only downside by moving to a newer platform. But if i buy the ram I can reuse it later down the line :)
