Just doing a CPU loop? If so, everything listed would be good to go. If you want to add a GPU to your loop and intend to overclock, you might want another radiator.

You wont be able to fit the res in-between the GPU and front radiator. The case is very tiny.


If you're okay with going horizontal res on the false floor, or just having a ceiling-only radiator then it should work just fine.

I intend to add a GPU loop and overclock the processor and place only one radiator on the top in the case.

cases like that remind me why I wanna build my external radiator, pump, res combo box. Then you'd just QDC your tower of choice to your radiator tower

Unless you want to run your fans on jet engine takeoff mode, doing all that on a single 360mm isn't going to work well depending on what CPU and GPU you are trying to cool.

I would go up to a larger case and run a 420mm up top if you really want to go single radiator.

One possible option:

So I have another question. Whether the EK-MLC Phoenix 360 fit on the top of the case with the hoses on the left and right?

I am not going to get the lowest possible temperatures...

I'm running 2x 360 radiators with Vardar fans with an overclocked 8700k 5.2GHz and a 1080Ti and I think that is a bout the minimum I can run when playing BFV on the extra hot summer days unless I want to crank the fans up a little in which case I could run a 360 and a 240. I have the EK-XRES 140 Revo D5 PWM running at 40-45%. Any faster and I can hear it. Not loud but it is right next to me and I don't think faster cools much better.
When water cooling a bigger case can be better especially when you want to reach into the case and change stuff without the pipes and pump getting in the way.
I am changing one of my radiators to a 420mm and fitting 140 furious varders to give even better cooling.
You could start with a single 420rad and 140mm fans and see how you go but either way my preference would be for a larger case.
When you hold a 140mm fan you realise how much more substantial it is than a 120mm fan
