It will be an outside mount. It's going off the right side corner in back. 2 steel brackets i'll make and longer screws so i can use the case panel holes. The rad will be vertical. I'm excited.

I think I'm gonna go the extra step and paint the inside of the case black. I love my antec 300's, all 3, but i hate the inside not being painted.

Dunno if you've already purchased anything but *real* watercooling is pretty expensive so be prepared to spend at least double what you think it will cost. As another guy already said, the XSPC kit might be nice for a starter but be prepared to replace a LOT. So you might as well do it right from the onset, especially if you want to cool your GPU(s).

Gotcha. This is why i'm waiting for the swiftech kit from crazypc. The entire kit
seemed better. Methos123 is prolly gonna kill me, but i'm goin for the full coverage ek block.

I wouldn't wait for a kit. Get a pump/rad/blocks tubing and fittings and put it together yourself. You'll be more satisfied; trust me on this. Watercooling is an addiction and should be taken seriously. Also, good choice on the full coverage EK block... Way better than a GPU only block with ramsink... Especially with today's GPUs.

- PA120.3 (or equivalent rad space) - You want at least 3x120mm radiator space for cooling CPU and GPU. More if you plan on adding more later, but worry about that then; this is right now. ~$110
- MCP 355 with XSPC or Bitspower reservoir top. ~$110
- EK Supreme HF - CPU block ~$80
- EK FC480 - GPU block ~$110
- Tygon 3603 7/16 x 5/8 - at least 10 ft. $1.95/ft. More if you want some wiggle room.
- Bitspower 1/2" Barbs - ~$3/per - You'll need 8 (two on rad, two on cpu, two on gpu and two on pump/res combo)

Now this is where it gets fun. People are selling stuff here on OCN and on other forums all the time so I'll bet you can find the radiator, pump/top/res and barbs all for a lot cheaper. Also, you've already got the h70 which is *technically* watercooling... If you cut off the EK Supreme HF that saves you $80, plus fittings and the extra tubing it would take and even extra rad space if you want to get only a 120.2 right now.

Yes it's an expensive hobby, but the gains are freakin' sweet. You'll continually want to do more and the rabbit hole goes deeper and deeper. Start small, and start with some used stuff... that will cut your costs down a bunch.

MCP 355 with XSPC - you guys like the pump/res combo? same power pump as a stand alone pump?
