I was thinking long and hard about how I was going to do this, and I came to three conclusions.
1. I know the H80 does not work the normal way, so I am considering using this to make it so the hoses don't have to reach as far.http://www.frozencpu.com/products/7716/ex-rad-136/Feser_Admiral_Series_Xtender_120mm_Radiator_Shroud_-_Dual_Blue_LED.html
This way there will be more space between the rad and the front fan so the rad is closer to the socket. I have no idea if this will work.
2. Wing it. I'm sure I can fit it somewhere. I could cut the top grille to fit it through, fit it to the back somehow with low-profile fans, or something else.
3. Just let it hang somewhere. I fully intend to get the H80 in this case. Call me crazy, but cooling and overclocking are huge priorities for me. This is the dealbreaker for me with the Vulcan if I can't cool it properly. If I go regular ATX, I would end up spending over 150 bucks more.
When I get my parts (It might be awhile, it might not. Long story.), I'll tell and show you how I did it. If I can't, I'll sell the H80 here. I really think it is worth a shot. My guess is that the shroud will be enough to make it fit! If not, I'll get my hands dirty.
Thanks for the help.
