The Enzotech Northbridge was a failure and ended up wasting a lot of my time. With that said, here's some pictures:
Sorry to hear the Enzotech failed for you, I was hoping it would be successful so that maybe I could follow your path and get one for my own setup.
How did you mount the 40mm fan to the Stock HS?

There's just not enough surface area on the SLF-1 to dissipate heat. I was looking at the larger square heatsink from Enzotech, but it has no fan and I'd have to figure out how to mount on. On top of that, it probably is also smaller than stock as well.

And hitman is right, 2 zip ties to mount the 40mm fan. I only used 2 because I couldn't see any room for more, and honestly didn't need more. When zip tied diagonally, there was plenty of pressure holding the fan securely to the heatsink. I probably would not recommend mounting a 40mm fan because they simply aren't able to push that much air. IF I decide I want to improve on what I have, I'd pick up some 60mm fans.

I want to go to water, but I have concerns about fan noise for the radiator, finding a case with a minimalistic design that I like, and having everything contained in 1 neat package.

mountain mods

kinda pricey though

as u seen in the earlier posts from me, i made dual gpus fit in a small case with rad on top, noise is not even half as high as i thought it would be. just grab a decent fan controller and some high speed loons, you can stick with your antec 300 and mount the rad on top (kinda like i did) if you dont care for looks, but for performance.

The best way is how hitman just suggested, Mountain Mods. Hit them up and they have anything you need. However, you can also get a CM 690 "Advanced Package" and you have endless possibilities to mount rads inside that case. Just have to do your research on what rad to get for low CFM fans, low pressure fans. I know for a fact HW Labs GTX Series love high pressure fans, you can use some low flowing quite fans, but they shine with some big boys bolted up to them, I can tell you from experience.

Mountain Mods looks pretty close to what I'd like. Plain brushed aluminum with minimal frills is a huge plus for me. Only thing is these cases look pretty large. I can also see how the "cube" setup may be more effective, but it's different from the "standard" and takes some getting use to. I'm going to price out some stuff and see how much this would set me back, hahahah

Yeah Mountain mods is the way to go if you have the extra $$$. You have sooo many possibilities to watercool there it's not even funny.
