I got the same case as you ,
hmmm the GTS has a Width of 133mm
and the BIP's are the same.

You could mount it on the top or the back like i did, check out some pics in my sig down there of my rig.
hmmmm i just measured the inside of my Armor in front, and it seems to be larger than 133mm,about 142mm including those brackets sticking out inside to mount the 5 1/4 bays. so it should fit!!
You getting a 2x120mm rad or 3x120mm rad?

I was thinking a 2x120mm. would that cool a e6600 and a 8800gtx? I am sure it depends on what radiator i get though.

hmmmm for an E6600 and GTX in the same loop with low cmf fans, i would get a 3x320 at least, those are 2 hot chips right there and you will need all the cooling you can get. Especially since your using low cmf fans.

Otherwise get a 240GTX and put some higher cmf fans on it if your tight on the space.
Or even a thermochill PA120.2 rad.

what about adding a 1x120mm to the back of the case and attatching it to the rear fan with the barbs facing the case? Then drill 2 holes for the tubes to go through. it would be between the cpu and gpu.

Yup thats a good idea, you need to get a radbox though, to put some space between the rad and the case, so you take advantage of that cool air in your room, and not blow hot air into your case or into your rad from your case.
Yup cut a hole like i did here:


hmmm but maybe you dont have to cut, if your adding another 120mm rad, then just run your 3/8 tubing through the top holes at the back of the armor, those a meant for water tubes.

If you want to use 3/8" use compression fittings for it and it will still have decent flow...If you don't want the hassle of all that use 1/2" barbs with 7/16"x5/8" tubing its only 1/8" bigger then 3/8x1/2" tubing and it will flow about as well as full 1/2"x3/4" tube....

If i where to use danger den 3/8 high flow fittings how would compression fittings give me better flow? They still have a barb. But man they are expensive! I hope that price is for 2.

I'm going by Cathar's tubing calculations where compression fittings were used on the 3/8" and smaller tubing...The compression fittings give you a less turbulent flow...Tubing over a barb has more turbulence and less flow...
