Hey guys i was wondering if its possible to add a watercooling setup with the Antec skeleton? I have seen people mount the h50 on the side which i could do but is there something i could put in the two internal 3.5" bays? Its just open space and i figured i could make some good use of it. Apart from having the h100 in my last build im a complete noob when it comes to watercooling. thanks!

with that case you could put a 240 on the side with a small res pump in the drive bay depending on what you want to cool you could get a rad stand

I would just be cooling my cpu. I have a 7970 that gets pretty good temps already. I guess I might watercool it in the future, just not now.

well tbh if your only doing cpu and may add gpu then I'd suggest the swiftech h220 for now then expand it later if you need to

It's a little expensive ($250?) Do i have to buy an extra things with it or is everything needed included? Can it only cool the cpu?

Anything i can use this with? I have all my cables sleeved red so this would match nicely

If you want that then grab a XSPC kit and get red led instead of the blue ones.

Id like to fit everything inside if possible. If i understand correctly a pump & reservoir will fit in two 5.25" bays? I only have two 3.5" bays open. Anything i can make work with that?

Swiftech make a micro rez its pretty small. Several other companies maks smaller rez's. Here is a 3,5 inch bay rez, another one.

I like the 2nd one since it would take up both bays. What else would i need to buy with that?

Fittings is the only thing I can think of.
