Only advice I have is... take your time, use good quality TIM and make sure all your screws are tight.
Then, sit back and enjoy the coooooolness thumb.gif
I am planning on using the stock Antec 620 TIM, which I hear is high quality.
Where would your recommend putting the radiator in an NZXT phantom? Is there anywhere I can put it to reduce the damage if it were to leak?

Is this the case?

If you remove the bottom cage, you could use the floor fan port or use the rear fan port.

Where were you thinking of putting the rad?

I was thinking of either putting it in the back exhaust, which makes me a bit nervous of leaks, fitting it in the 5.25" bays or trying to get it to fit in where the hard drive rack was mounted, which is not a fan port. I could also put it on the door, but that sounds like a terrible way to accidentally destroy a graphics card.

7v will slow it down right?

Yea it will. It could also total your system too. Your basically taking the 12v and dumping it on the 5v rail thru the fan. There is a chance the 5v could go too high, for too long. The devil is the tech details.There are plenty of variables that might keep this from happening, but why risk it?
My experience with voltage regulators is that they are built to source current, not sink it. In the lab I overdrive regulator outputs to verify they are not the source of some noise I'm tracking down.

id say that unless you want to stack empty fan shrouds to reach the front of the case you should pick the rear exaust or the bottom mount for the psu and top mount the psu.

When you do the placement of the pump to card make sure that your are very careful not to accidently touch down biggrin.gif Smearing the paste can and often will have bad effects on the cooling abilitys. For a few extra degrees lower you can also lap the cooler thumb.gif

I looked at your case online, but It's not like it's in front of me.
One gotcha - Keep the air bubbles out of the pump .It can kill the circulation and cause a melt down.
Your closed loop system may not be bleed of bubbles. It's low evapaorative, but will lose some water and gain some air over time.
It's best if pump is the lowest point in the system. At least keep part of the RAD above the pump, and the inlet hose (cooler) lower.

Would it be possible to mount the radiator 90 degrees counter clockwise, so the fittings would be on the left? It looks like it would be a tight fit, but it would leave no fittings directly over the graphics card.

I dont see any issue with rotation. Ive have my rad at all sorts of angles and rotations and not had any problems with it. smile.gif

I'm wondering if it would actually fit; it looks like I have about 1mm of clearance but it's hard to tell without installing it.

same here, placed my rad in every way it can be done and no issues
