In the bottom you can either put the PSU in the bottom mount and put the rad on the plate between the PSU chamber and motherboard, put the PSU in the top mount and mod the rad into the floor of the case, or mod/replace the PSU panel to have the PSU vertical, and put the rad on the side of the case.

Either of those options requires a holesaw/dremel at a minimum.

Another option (how I first set mine up) is to put the radiator on top, with shrouds (gutted cheap fans) suspending and holding it to the existing fan mounts up there, then just drill 2 holes for tubing.

Start by deciding what you want to put and where. My advice is to get a radiator stand and mount it to the bottom of the case below the psu. It will fit. Barely.

ABS Black Pearl is the same as a Lian Li V2000. Abs is newegg's brand.
