That's a real good point. My rad is mounted on the back of my case and is also an intake, and I would have made my front rad an intake also just because the fans themselves are intake so I guess I would have gotten lucky and it turn out fine, but I definitely overlooked that scenario.

I would mount the radiator in the front of the case, and run them both as intake. Use the side and rear fans as exhaust and you'll have a good airflow setup.
So.. Youre saying to put both rads in the front as intake but then wouldnt the warm air from the first rad be transferred over to the second? I think I read this wrong or something..

No, I'm saying to mount one radiator in the front, one in the top and have them both as intake. That way they both get fresh air from outside the case.

Ohhh so.. Put a 240 rad under the 200mm fan..? And then use 2 120s to help pull in air on the other side?

Yes. One one the back of the case, and the other in the front where the LED fans are and have them both as intake and the 200 mm big boy as your out take. That's what I'm going to do. I just have to find a way to mount the front rad so it will be secure.

Haha sorry for the late night typo. Well... I suppose another RES could help if it was made of copper and finned. maybe throw a few TECs on it as well

In all seriousness though I did indeed mean another RAD and there are really countless possibilities for mounting. There are even some kits made for mounting in the optical bays (and some forign import rads that have holes drilled in the sides for this very purpase... not sure if they are any good though). You can also use a swiftech "radbox" to hang one off the back, or just make some sort of device yourself. And of course theres the possibility of just tossing it on top, next to your case, or building/buying a seperate enclosure.

Its all about personal prefrence and situational requirements here.

I found this on youtube:
Hopefully that'll give you some ideas. I'm planning on doing something really similar to that but I'm just a bit worried about puncturing the rad or something.. that wouldn't be good haha. And yeah I guess I'll have the front and back as intake and the 200 as exhaust. I just bought 5 R4 coolermaster fans so I'm going to have to take them out and flip them anyways. Maybe I'll put a 120 in that side window for more exhaust. Anyways please PM me if you come up with any better ideas as to how to mount the rad in the cages
