i have everything for the liquid cooling system except the rads.
A rad in the top will NOT fit unless you go fanless, cause it will hit the top screws on the CPU waterblock. I Currently have like 1 cm clearance between the 140mm and my screws.
a Rearmounted whould probably be able too work in 2 ways, either you just get a passthrough plate for the PCI-e cover slots
or you can (this require modding) Drill 2 holes in the top just above the rear 120mm fan and use 2 Bulkhead fittings
and 2 45 degree fittings
on the inside of the case, this whould give a very neat and clean connection between the rad and the case itself (I'm acctually considering this but i don't have the funds or heatload for this)
It is also ofcourse possible too mount a 120mm fan on the inside of the case at the 120mm fan.
Your idea of placing the 240 rad in the side panel might become difficult considering the amount of space inside of the caseand if you do this you will probably need a few 90 degree bends too make it easier too even connect all the tubes.Edited by MlbrottarN - 3/19/10 at 5:48am
