Hello. Recently ran into an issue where I bought the Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML240L V2 RGB and tried to mount the fans on my Phanteks Case Eclipse P300 on the front side of the case due to the fact that the top of the case only supports one fan which wouldn't work because the radiator and the fans need a lot more space and simply wouldn't be that effective.

So I went ahead and tried to attach the fans to the front of the case with the radiator already being in place, but the screws that came with the cooler simply weren't long enough. I don't know if it's because of the thickness of the case or something else, but after an hour of trying to figure everything out, I just attached the radiator to the front of the case and left the fans facing the PC parts.

I do know that it's a bad thing for the parts of the PC because the airflow isn't there and it just doesn't look like it's supposed to.

I was trying to think of some solutions for this problem and I got two - maybe I should buy longer screws if that will fix the problem? Or a more expensive solution would be to buy a bigger case? Wanted to know if someone could help me out with this.

I will attach two images in hopes that they will help you understand what the situation is:

if you're not worried about cosmetics, throw some zipties in there. the direction of flow honestly doesn't matter as long as the hot air gets out.

are you placing your setup fans, radiator, then case? so the radiator sandwiched in-between the fans and the case? or were you trying to put the radiator on the inside with the case in the middle and the fans placed outside?

i'd personally just order longer screws or look for the ones that come with the radiator itself.
