So I think I found what radiator I'm going to use: http://www.xoxide.com/phobya-xtremequad480-radiator.html
With the dimensions, I should be able to mount it in the front, if not, I'm going to find a way to mount it in sideways.

So guys, it looks like im going to be extending the case by a half inch on each side. Making it wider, that is, for the radiator I want to use. I worked it out in Sketchup today, and I would only have 9/64" of space between the rad and the edge of the case :/ I wish I would have known about this radiator from the start of the build. Oh well, I just hope I don't mess this up tongue.gif I'm going to see what scraps of oak I can scrounge, and possibly use some of my wood I bought. I hope everything goes well biggrin.gif

So originally I was thinking of adding pieces to the sides, but I realized I can add a piece in the middle, if I just cut the pieces right in the center. The cool thing about this is I will be able to put an "accent" stripe down the center of the case. I also may be able to do some laser engraving as well. I will load up some Sketchup pictures tomorrow.
