Furthermore, what length of tubing did you use? I'm quite curious about the Nat-inator...

I dunno about the 400R. People complain the the H100 is a tight fit and the rad is 27mm thick, and the BI Stealth's are 31mm thick.

When I start up a new build I always buy 10ft (3.5m) of tubing minimum. For one, I need to cut it in 3 to start off for rad flushing. I use pumps to flush the rads; I find it easier and more reassuring when I finally see no more flux in the sink. Then cut it up to fit within the case for blocks, pumps and rads. You never know when you'll screw something up, and for the price you pay tubing I say get a little extra. Having to wait the extra shipping days cause you're missing some and you can't finish is a phobia of mine, that and not having a working computer to play with.

Shoot away, I'll answer any questions to the best of my knowledge!

Anyone know the max thickness radiator that can internally fit in a 400r...or do I have to mount the rad externally?

It's a very nice case for air cooling, just no really designed for water cooling.

Just finished building my first water cooled computer. Modified the 500r a bit but kept the stock look.

really nice job. use some red sleeving or heatshrink to cover up the yellow/etc psu wires and you definitely have a 10/10
