Where? I don't think the tubes will reach anywhere near the front of the case, and they probably won't fit between the graphics card and the cooler.
I can't mount it 90 degrees so the tubes go above the cooler, as it would contact the case door.
I could zip tie it to the PCIe slots; it wouldn't look pretty, and it wouldn't exhaust all the heat out of the case, but it would probably fit.

I think he meant reverse the fan on the Antec Kuhler. I would keep it the way you have it. Have the fans on the Phanteks oriented to blow out through the Antec Kuhler. It will raise your GPU temps a bit but I think that is your only option ATM.

I was initially thinking of mounting the phanteks to it exhausted upward, and the antec was an exhaust, but I am not sure that that is actually possible, due to the rigidity of the tubing attached to the antec. I could mount the graphics card in the third x16 slot, so that the CPU cooler would not be choked as much, so it would work if I could fit it.

No, I meant move it to the front of the case or bottom (if you have an intake option there.

I don't think the tubing is long enough to accommodate that, and there are some problems associated with having the rad below the pump.

to those of you that use the dwood brackets,
about how long does it take to arrive after placing the order?
the info page says completed, but i dont have em yet

nevermind to my last question ,

the brackets are in my greedy little hands now,
it seems that i have to pop off the last little heatsink,
the one closest to the sli clips and the dvi/hdmi ect
IF you want to mount the 80mm fan

if you have the basic bracket,
then you dont have to do anything,

but im thinking of just taking my gpu's original shroud and cooler and cutting a hole in the top and refitting it over the kuhler

Be sure to show us how that goes. I want to see! I put my order on hold since I need to make some measurements for him because I have the stubby 670 (like you).

i re updated my first post with some more stuff, its at,

http://www.overclock.net/t/1203528/official-nvidia-gpu-mod-club-aka-the-mod/2540#post_18686833

but yea, the fan bracket i guess i shouldnt have bought,
cos ive just decided to put the 670's fan and shroud back on anyways, and cut away a portion to let the coolers waterlines to stick out of it, then the
gpu';s own fan can take care of blowing against the ships and stuff.


also, sor some magical reason i cant seem to overclock my card with afterburner.
i can only lower the clock speed , adding anything to it tho, and the readout still says its running at its stock speed.

Try precision x; I think it might be the only one that actually works.
