Close to Swindon, but not Swindon
I'm currently working on a budget and I’ve been looking at changing to either the Antec 302 or Corsair Carbide 300R. Now the Corsair is not too much of an issue as it has the space for a dual fan closed loop cooling fixture at the top of the case, but in the Antec 302, it doesn’t have the facilities to place a dual fan fixture, only a single fan.

My question is: Would it be possible to link 2 single closed loop cooling units together and utilize 2 separate fan positions?

Or am I going about this the wrong way, and just get the Corsair instead?

The Corsair looks good, but the Antec is better priced!

to throw a spanner in the works

simply having dual fan support does not mean it supports a dual rad as there may not be enough clearence for fans+rad

you cannot join two single rad coolers together, hence the name closed loop.

also imo h100 in budget case makes no sense

It wouldn't be recommended to split a manufacturers closed loop system as it would compromise the integrity and reliability of the loop. The fittings used in these systems are not designed to be deconstructed and reconstructed. You would almost certainly void the warranty on them straight away.

With a custom loop you can do pretty much whatever you want.
