Are there any clearance issues with the RX or RS 240 kits and this case?

In order to mount the rad with the optional 200mm fan installed on top, I had to slightly bend the rad mounting brackets forward toward the front side of the case. This also moved the rad away from my RAM, which is quite tall. The side of the rad sits almost flush with the side panel once the case is closed, but it fits fine. You have to insert the rad (with brackets attached and slightly bent forward) at an angle, first getting the single-hole bracket up and between the two 200mm fan frames, and then raise the front two-holed bracket up and tighten it up!

I used the extra space for my pump.
+ Rep! Thank you so much for the very informative post! Definetly made my choice clear, come May Ill be building my system with the Red NZXT Phantom

It is very easy. All the controllers cables are labeled so it is quite easy to do.

Still on hold unfortunately, haven't had a chance to buy a dremel yet. My time is heavily invested on my race car team right now... so many deadlines to meet.
