Will you be using a 280mm radiator ? I find it weird but for some reason (probably the lack of choice upon 140mm fans) they're uncommon. Mine will be exactly 317mm long (they're both 280mm EK coolstreams) but nowadays sata ports are on their side and by having the Radiator as close to the left side panel as possible will leave plenty space anyway.
And I actually would have to worry about PSUs, if I ever change my PSU (but it looks like consumption is lowering with every new Gen of GPUs and even CPUs so unless it fails I'm good) for a normally sized one and the cables aren't as far on the right as on my current one (or if it's a modular PSU) the there would be absolutely no space left between the rad and the cables.

I will be doing a 240mm if I end up doing another radiator my rig.

Mount the rad under the 200mm fans using the brackets nzxt provides. You may or may not be able to put push fans on the bottom of the rad.

Also use short mobo screws to attach the bracket to the rad. Longer screws will dig into the rad fins and may potentially cause a leak.

I've just waiting for two OCZ Vertex 4 128GB 2.5" SSD to arrive, and whilst i do I'm trying to work out the best way to mount them.

I've seen a few different ideas and i was wondering what people think work best?

Speaking of those, aren't the cables a bit of a mess in the 5.25" bays because of them ?
I'm still looking inot options for my SSD and HDD so that's why I'm asking smile.gif
