Hey everyone,
Will a rx360 radiator fit on the top of a Haf-X case?
My motherboard is an asus maximus V formula.
I am thinking of a push/pull configuration with these fans : http://www.frozencpu.com/products/9124/fan-570/Scythe_Kaze-Jyuni_Slim_Slip_Stream_120mm_x_12mm_Fan_-_2000_RPM_SY1212SL12H.html?tl=g36c15s972#blank

Did you need to take out some of the front drive bays?

I don't think so but don't remember for sure. I had a small fan controller (half the size of regular cd-bay) installed in the first bay. Last 3 bays was for a fan.

ok, a little off topic, What is the best coolant fluid? and would you recommend red tubing with clear fluid, clear tubing with red fluid, or red tubing with red fluid? (Yes I want to have UV lighting)

Distilled water with Silver Coil is the best. Less maintenance.
Red tubing/distilled will work fine, in fact, probably what i'll do next.
Red tubing is going to look great on that Formula board.

This is my clear/uv tube with distilled with blue LED lighting:

I have heard that some people put a little antifreeze into it, is that a good idea?
Also nice rig!

Thanks, I heard antifreeze isn't a good idea, anything other than water=potential clog.
Also even with the antifreeze, not much of a temperature gain.

Really? I heard that the purpose of it was to put a few drops and then that could prevent corrosion.
