Yeah, that's the one thing I found was perfect with my previous build-out. The UT60's port (provided it's mounted directly
to the top of the case) lines up almost perfectly with that grommet hole at the back. So I'm figuring that make the port on the Monsta almost exactly 15mm to low.
If you put pull fans on the Monsta it should have enough room to come from the top port with a 90 and make it... but it will be a threading process...
First you'd need to have nothing in yet, then cut a longer than necessary tube run and connect it to the inner (to be top) port - has to be a stubby 90 though or adapter - not a 'smooth 90' because I think those stick up more than 25mm so they'd probably be too tight to get in there - but I could be wrong on that. then feed the tube through the hole and 'load' your fans between and attach with the 30mm screws while holding the whole thing with one hand while adjusting fans, etc and turning screws with the other one. And that
is where my back would give out on me if I weren't in the perfect position...
It would probably be even better with some 3-5mm fan gaskets and using the 35mm screws... but then there's 6 separate things to line up in order to attach it to the case (seven if you count the rad itself - all with one hand....
Maybe you could measure the distance to the bottom of the case and rig up something for a 'rad stand' to hold it in place while you attempt to line up 3 fans and 3 gaskets with the holes.
Any way, I had to rep you on the Legos comments... I still have all of mine (although I haven't actually touched them in 20 years)... since I'm not having kids, but I refuse to give them away - they'll always be on hand for my nephew when he gets older. I don't think I had any other toys from 5-13 - and I didn't care at all... I just wanted more Legos! I also discovered that my roommates and I had just as much fun playing with them in college... but we were 'chemically retarded' to about 12yr olds at the time... so I guess that makes sense too!

It should be pretty cheap if it's disassembled and shipped flat packed like they do - I already received mine (woohoo - 3 days from ordered to received via GROUND) - it's nice to live so close to CA sometimes! I think shipping from CL was less than $15 - so I wouldn't think shipping to Canada would be more than twice that much... but ya never know with those Cannucks!Edited by DiGiCiDAL - 5/25/13 at 3:55am
