Just remove the bottom hdd bays.
The holes are already present and the bottom of the case is already cut to support it. You can run the tubing trough the holes or between the bottom plate and the quick swap bays, which ever you prefer. The modding I had to do was in order to fit the TEC cooling I have going for the cpu, to just do a 360/240 top/bottom set up, you would simply have to remove the bottom bays.

Here is a close up shot of the 240 at the bottom, the top one should be self explanatory.

450

The case really is a WC monster, only thing I ***** about now is feeling like I need more space, but other than the cosmos II, not sure if any case will offer me that.

It's a monster, plain and simple.
If you plan on doing an extensive loop with 2 larger rads, it's the king of the hill right now if you ask me.

Again, a Caselabs... even an M8.

800D's are "meh." They're decent cases, have good features, but they're heavy, and aren't the greatest for watercooling. Look at 1nst1nct1ve's setup, it's a nightmare. I'd kill myself if I had to work on all that gear inside an 800D (and, yes, I've owned an 800D).

Again, there are far better cases for watercooling out there. The CaseLabs M8 or STH10 are awesome. The NZXT Switch 810 is excellent for a cheaper option. Other than that, there are Little Devil and TJ07's.

OP, invest in a Caselabs product. It will a case you will reuse for a LONG time.

Switch comes in black.. though it should be noted its a piano black and I read fingerprints can be pretty annoying on it.

You can definitely fit loads in the cosmos 2 with zero modding. Caselabs is really nice as well... i personally am just not into the looks of them.

just got an email from jim at caselabs the M8 cost $360 and to ship it cost $384 which is $744 and that is just insane and i will not pay that much for shipping lol. so there is no cases what so ever i can get the 800D requires a small amount of modding and i dont want to mod because i cant. the NZXT has WAY to much plastic and if i add a RX360 in the roof i lose one 5.25 bay and i need all 3 of them the TJ11 is not that great since it has the motherboard mounted the wrong way which means less space for radiator mounting so i dont like that case. the tj07 has little to no space above the motherboard for a RX360. the cosmos 2 cant support a RX360 in the roof which is a dam shame. so it comes down to no good case for watering besides case labs and well im not paying more for shipping then the case also i need at least 3-4 HDD cages
