240 rad goes to the top.

200 rad goes to the case front, at the place of the front 200mm intake fan.

thanks for the link smile.gif Any ideas where else? How hard would it be to mount a 120 rad in the 5.25" bays?

YOu might be able to get away with something like an ex240 in the top and a ex120 internally in the back or something. I have that same case currently. I saw a guy who had an internal ex240 and rx120 I think, but he had to use a skinny fan over the 120.

You can mount a 240 or 280 mm regular thickness radiator up top (280 mm if you have the fans at the highest point) and you can mount a 120 over the rear exhaust.
I have a 280SR-1 and 120 keeping a GTX480 with a heavy OC and midly oc'ed i7-2600k nice and cool. Since there is room for a 280, I would go that route and I do think a single would cool your gpu and cpu. They will be much cooler than on air, if not as cool as others. Go for it. thumb.gif

Should probably mention that you won't be able to use the default mounting holes depending on what motherboard you have, and that if you use fans in push, it will cover the top half of your ram slots, so if you want to change ram, your taking out your WC.

If you have the space I would go with a single 480 rad to keep things simple, otherwise I would definitely use two 240 rads, just to keep a little headroom for added components.

Not happening. the 650D only has room for a 240 by default. Adding a 200MM or 120 is about all you can do.

A 200mm rad is pretty large surface area wise.

If the op were to run a lower clock speed, like say 4.0 GHz, would the EX 240 be able to handle that along with the GPU on a mild overclock?

Sorry if this is somewhat irrelevant, but I'm just curious biggrin.gif

He could keep both overclocked and still be fine... it's not the size of the rad that matters much, if it's paired with good fans it will perform well.
