Just finished today my install on a Xilence Interceptor Pro.
WC used is a XSPC Rasa 750 RX360 kit and a watercooled Nvidia GTX480.
There is a 4x120mm fan bracket at the top side. Clearance from the back is 2.5cm and from the front 6cm.
At the front there is a drive bay 11.5cm below the fan bracket that you might have to remove.

I don't think you can mount 2 rads. The 3x1 fan bracket is right below the 4x1 at a distance of 20 cm, mounting 2 rads will push hot air from one rad to another at very close distance.
And don't know how much help 140 fans will be, the fan openings are 120. It's just that there are screw holes for 140 fans, and for the 4x1 fan bracket you can either mount 4x120mm fans or 3x140mm fans.
Will try to get you some pictures tomorrow (after midnight here), so you better understand.

Hi take a look at this
http://interceptor.xilence.net/img/landing/lightbox/f5.jpg
its from their website the picture above shows 480 and 360 and on their website a 4*120mm rad OR a 3*140mm rad in the top so how will the 480 not work?
I was thinking of of cpu loop
360mm (Triple) for 120mm Fans
and for gpu loop
420mm (Triple) for 140mm Fans
I hope this clears it up thumb.gif

Great pic for showing the installation, might not have to dig up my camera smile.gif.
I don't have much experience in watercooling but what my concern was with installing 2 rads was that one rad will exhaust hot air on the 2nd rad, which might not be optimal.

Well that might be true but I found a good Chanel on YouTube
http://www.youtube.com/user/TimeToLiveCustoms/videos
for more than a years know and what I understand is TimeToLiveCustoms he is a legend when it comes to reviews and in some of his video that he does water cooling he says it does not mater that much as its not going to effect it that much me be a few degree warmer but not that much i will ask TimeToLiveCustoms as well:D
