The other route would be to mount the rad off center to make room.
The way most have mounted a 240 rad in the Scout is in the front. It is a pretty easy mod depending on what rad you use. The XSPC RS240 will bolt up to the stock fan location, the only thing you have to do is cut in to the 5.25" bays and remove the HDD cage. You can check my rig out, I have a link to it in my sig. If you are just wanting to cool the CPU you could go with a 120 in the back, very easy set up with little to no modding.
thanx for the reply.
i plan on making a wood top (see link to build log-Not a HTPC?)
, so i will only have about 1.5 inches sticking inside my case.
i did a quick measure, just to the MB standoff holes and it looks like i have about 2 inches from the top of the case to where it will effect the ram.
i wont be able to use tall heatspreaders on the ram, but i can rig up some sort of ram cooling if needed.
i plan on getting a-XSPC Rasa 750 RS240 Universal CPU Water Cooling Kit.
once i get the rad in my hands, i will have a better idea of how it will fit.
if i cant get the 240 to fit, i will sell it and pick up a couple 120 rads and sell the 240.
i do like how you have you rad set in your system-i might end up with something like that.
thanx and looking forward to posting some pictures throughout my build.
