You got 540mm length and 402mm height.
So 400mm tube cant fight in the height.

I would just lay it on its side and mount it somewhere out of the way.

The safe measurements is 298mm, but you got an internal space for 360mm (from panel to panel).
So guess it depends on the mounting points.

With a 150mm wide PSU, so will you have 148mm to 210mm space on the sides.
Or you could side mount 1 rad and have the other at the bottom, depening on how things line up.

By the way, do you got 4 rads, since you are trying to fit 2 in the bottom?

Nope, just the 2 360s. I want the rads and pump mounted on the bottom for a very clean look up top. The rads/fans will hide everything and I just have gpu blocks and reservoir showing up top.

My concern is similar to what others have. The windowed panel. I was hoping to get another so I have a view from both sides but I don't think that's enough air being drawn from the front and back. Maybe a 200 up front will provide some but is it enough?

I was thinking up front vertical. Its an EK multiport, so I dont need access to the top or bottom of the res for fittings. But you are right, it might look better in the bottom section of the window on its side, with a plate behind it.

I have a couple large sheets of plexi to play with when all the parts get here. The case will be here friday, but the W/C stuff might not be til monday.

If that is the line of though, why not move the window to the top and make it look good from that angle?

With both rads side mounted, so will there be plenty of air moving through it.
So you just have to find a way to mount the PSU.

Is the tube (with fittings) 400mm or do you have to add fittings to the 400mm?
After all, you only got 402mm, so if the tube with everything is higher then that, you cant fit it standing up.

I did not know the top and side panels were interchangeable O.o

Thanks for the help. At the very least, since its so modular, I can part the case out into another build if it don't like it. 170 for brackets, motherboard tray, dust filters etc. isn't too bad a deal

Sorry, I had an modder in mind.

It seems you cant put the window on top.

hmmm, can that motherboard try be rotated to the top?!?! No clue how that would help in any way, but it'd be cool!
