If you want wider radiators you will have to mod or remove the optical bay.

You can check my build log how I fitted my Hardware Labs 420 slim radiator.

Wolftame, Barefooter mounted a 420mm rad that's 145mm wide and 45mm thick but still had to use a dremel. Are you saying that it can fit without dremel and by bending the flanges of the optical bay?

I can't state anything 100% and haven't seen the build log, but I'm guessing he dremeled off the flanges (the shelves that optical devices rest on) rather than to bend them (some also just use pliers or similar and bend them out of the way). Other than those shelves there really isn't anything inside the optical bay that should impede the fit up to about 150mm.
Personally I had to cut out the top part of the bay (in a way that isn't visible from outside the case) as my rad was wider than 150mm, but not thick enough that the shelves affected it.

Tip, if in doubt, get the exact measurements of the radiator(s) you are considering, cut out some cardboard from an old box to the exact outer dimensions and see if you can fit that through, that will give you an idea of what modding you might need to do (Also keep in mind fan width and height, but even 140mm fans shouldn't be any problems whatsoever)

@dbmsts A view from the front of my slim HWL radiator mounted with the 140mm fans. The hole cut into the front isn't really needed, it was just something I did so that I could slide the fully mounted fan/rad assembly in and out from the front. Here you can clearly see how those shelves might interfere with a thicker rad or one in push/pull (my rad is 30mm thick). As you can see I cut out the top part of the optical bay, but still leave it fully functional if I remove the rad and the changes isn't at all visible from the outside despite cutting away quite a bit more than I really needed to.

Alright, thanks Wolftame. That clears up a lot of questions.

So am i correct in assuming that there is no way even with moding the case to fit a 480 rad i these 750d cases? I just ask because im at work and didnt want to try to read all these posts from my phone on company time.

Correct assumptions, there just isn't enough physical space to fit that.

Beautiful indeed! I'm doing a new loop similiar to that, can you take a more zoomed out pic so I can see how you did all your tube runs? I'm always looking for inspiration.
