I see some do this with the HDD cage.

Having top and front as inlet is what I would recommend. I do it, case is on the floor, no filter on top and the inside of the computer is surprisingly not a desert of dust smile.gif
But see how it works as front inlet and top outlet first smile.gif
The idea is that the front radiator passes along the heat it dissipates up through the top radiator if it acts as a outlet, making the top radiator less able to dissipate it's heat.
But I'm sure either way would work splendid, it just depends on if you are satisfied with the fan noise and temps smile.gif
Edit :
The pump is not too powerful smile.gif
I like bigger tubing, but that is much more of a preference usually smile.gif
You seem to have it all now, except fans and fittings smile.gif

Thats a nice place to put the hard drives.
I am ordering seven GT AP 15's also from aqua computers:D.

By fittings, do you mean compression ones?I have ordered them as well.

Cheers man, you helped a ton!

Your'e welcome smile.gif
Compression ones are fittings smile.gif
Good luck and welcome to the wet side smile.gif

If you are from UK, you have watercoolinguk.co.uk as well smile.gif

In regards to the photo above.I so much wanted the space that the HX1000 is occupying in my builds (I do it in most of my Antec1200 builds) that I pulled the power supply out of the case (used extension cables) and bottom mounted either a 360 or 480 radiator. You can get a 360 totaly inside but I did not care if the fitting side of the radiator came out the back,so I let it.This allowed for mounting the pump and res on the back also.Only thing inside were the blocks and hoses to the blocks.Screened bottom intake for the radiator gave me the coolest air intake possible.

Hmm, Im really confused between silver kill coil and the pt nuke. I cant seem to find the pt nuke on frozencpu.Is this it?I heard that silver kill coil isnt the best.

Dead water is the same as PT Nuke basically. Dead water is what I use.

Almost ready to order the parts.Could anyone give me a loop order?I will have a dual 120mm thick rad on top, 200mm rad in front and a 120 mm thick rad on the back of the case.I decided to get a 5.25 " reservior instead of the bottle shaped one.

Perhaps like this, if the radiator can be orientated this way.
450

OPS, I have to redo the image!

EDIT :
New image, if the radiator has enough top clearing under the optical cage.
450
