Fortunately he can get away with the regular RS360 for all 3 blocks, so mounting it would be no problem.

Putting a thick one in there is not as easy as it looks.

Well I went ahead and swapped all the blue LED fans I had in my phantom for red ones today. The top '200' mm fan slots are just as deformed as the side slot...a standard 200mm coolermaster wouldn't fit normally, so I had to creatively make it work. AKA shove it in and zip tie it down (although I got 1 screw in at least)

With the non-modular psu and sentry controller I had a lot of cables sitting inside the case, which are now neatly stuffed behind the mobo tray smile.gif

My iPhone makes the color look a little off but you can still see to some extent that black + red lights makes this case look really mean. I also put in a couple meteor light strips on the inside...for raves

Thanks @thrashert. I would prefer the 360 if it will fit. By chance, do you have a pic of how you fit it inside the case?

I agree, I think it's best not to install it and then have to uninstall it for shipping from Afghanistan back to the states and then hook it up again. I've never done water cooling but I know when working on cars, fluid hoses don't always fit the same when reinstalling so I would imagine some of the same problems would apply. Of course I could always just buy new hoses, but then again I would be afraid of corrosion while there is no fluid in the Rad during shipment.

I still have 7 1/2 months to go. It's pretty hot here and the rockets suck but not too bad. Insurgents I can deal with, but rockets are pretty indescriminant and you can't shoot back at them LOL.

Initially, I only want to cool the CPU, but if I can fit the 360 I may cool the CPU as well as the two GPUs.

Here is a picture that should give you a good idea of how mine is mounted. keep in mind, that with fans on an RS rad, it can come close to the motherboard. Mine almost touches the ram sticks.

Did you get extensions for the mobo power cables? I honestly could not thread the 8-pin CPU cable to reach from the bottom and go behind the tray to the top of the case, which is where the connectors on my mobo are, right below the top fan.

The 24 pin threaded fine though it was just the CPU power that was giving me trouble.
