Gonna be veeeery tight if it's possible at all.

But there's always the option to mount externally on the rear or wherever. Again, I've never mounted one, I'm just looking at dimensions. If I'm talking out of my a**, someone correct me.

Hope that helps, and sorry if I didn't read/understand your first post correctly. I just got done flying a 2-hour flight in thunderstorms dodging lightning (I'm in flight school) and I'm a little wiped
So you fly, you dodge lightning and you help people in need. What are you, Superman?

Also thanks for your time. Making a custom loop just seems to expensive and the parts are REALLY hard to find here in Sweden, if any store actually sells them at all. So if anything, i'll have to go with a pre-made one.

More opinions on this please!

I just got one in. You can fit two 260's in it which surprised me. It's just a tight fit. My top card runs a little hot under load, but within an acceptable range. Will post a pic when I finish my cable management.

I just decided to just get a DK or something. Seems like EVERYONE thinks pre-made wc kits are terrible.

Just make sure that whatever you get, it's about 120mm vertically if you want the fan blowing from front to back. My TRUE is too big to fit that way, so I had to have the fan blowing upwards instead of out the back. The DK will fit, and is apparently really good. But the TRUE, Mugen 2, and Megahalems (some of the top choices out right now) are all too big to fit vertically. Good luck

a little cable management and that'll look really good. just out of curiosity. why's that HDD in the top drive bay and not with the other HDDs?

because it felt like there was no airflow with three hdds in the bottom cage, so i placed one up top with its own cage and separate fan(and to get more air intake)

I think that it is possible to mount a 360 rad internally and that means a 240 as well. I recommend building a shelf like surfer did but after removing the hard drive rack. If you put some mesh on the shelf to allow air through then you could look for that sweet neg air flow.

Once you have a shelf extending across the bottom just above the power supplies you could use 1" standoffs to old the fans up and the your rad. you might tweak airflow a bit but it would work and could look really clean.

In fact, I am thinking about getting another scout and moving my stuff over. Its such an awesome case.

It might be small but it makes everything inside look sooo big. Like that girls hand... hahaha.
