Like deafboy said, yes, you can. Here's someone who did: http://forums.overclockers.co.uk/showthread.php?t=18285464

I saw another build where he actually fit it under the grill on top of the case with the fans blowing exhaust. You just lose the top drive bay.

Also, you'd do better in terms of surface area if you did a 360 on top and a 200 up front (200x200 mm > 120x240 mm).

Frozen_Q reservoirs are pretty sweet. You probably dont want one like mine, Liquid Fusion, but he does have some tube style reservoirs that dont have anything in the middle. Like Yours. Kinda expensive, but they are pretty sweet and can be custom made with different ports and such.

EDIT: and yes, you can fit a 360 up top with some modding. I am actualling thinking about trying to fit a 480 up there. I would have to remove the top/front panel with the fan controller. But I dont use it anyway, and I can put in some custom USB plugs up there next to it. And I would have to remove the spring mount in the back for the mesh. Measuring it, it might just fit. But barely. Still debating on it.

If I asked you politely to try, would you?

I did manage to fit my black ice 360 uptop, but you'd damn near have to cut out EVERYTHING including the spring latches,
even then the black grill will not fit very well.

450

Here it is with the 360 rad attached.

700

My advice to you is don't do it, it will be frustration and not fit very well. I ended up abandoning my 600t after damn near cutting everything out and it still doesnt fit right.
If you really must have a big rad, add a 200MM down at the bottom with bitfenix 200m fans for push/pull.
Would save you a lot more headache/cash.

I've seen your build. Good work, but why didn't you put the radiator in the case and the fans under the mesh? Just wanted to try something you hadn't seen done?

I was trying to minimize noise and with the fans below the radiator will somewhat muffle the noise.

By the time I was done, i was too frustrated and p/o'ed to try other position. If your'e happy with top mounted fans then by all means.

It should fit perfectly with fans pulling.

I didn't want to lose any drive bays, so I'm set with my radiators (plus, I'm not as brave as you). I was just excited to watch King try to fit a 480.

At first I had two elbow joints, but the top mount for the HD cage (on the bottom of the 5.25" drive bays) lined up perfectly, so I just pressure fitted it between two strips of foam tape. There is a black piece of wood below the fans. Ended up better than I thought because the elbow joints were really hard to remove when I wanted to take the fans out.

I just used a hot glue gun to hold the four fans together.

Awesome man. Yeah, im guessing that pressure mounting it would be the best idea.
