I thought so as well, but "churchy" mentions he is working on one (different build). In the pic it is a 480. See its box on the previous page

Don't have a picture of this sorry.

Not sure where you got this info Charlie but as someone who owns a 700d..

The top of the 700d / 800d is 585mm and a 560 is 605mm so it won't fit. If you add the aluminum face plate that cover the 5.25 bays it it 610mm.

Sorry, I was wrong. You have to do a slight mod to allow the tubing hook up to extend out past the end of the case. Essentially the tubing comes out the back, only to go into the "internal" radiator.

It's still preferable to mounting it externally.

Basically you would have to cut the back out of the case to fit it in the top. Might as well just externally mount it. You would have at least 3" or 8cm sticking out the back. Sort of a franken-mod.

Ill probably just stick to my original plan of 480mm rad on top and a 360mm rad at the bottom all in corsair 800D.

A 560 rad gives you about the same performance as two 360s, so if you went that route you would only need a single radiator. But to each is own.

You can't really fit a 360mm on the bottom unless you have a super short psu. Why do you even need a 360 and a 480? Thats a ton of cooling power.

Yes, it is. Even with 1000 RPM fans on XSPC radiators you're going to have over 1000w of cooling power. This amount of power is only going to be found in something like tri-sli 480s + i7 or dual 5970s + i7. Hardly anyone has that hardware.

Wow that's quite the build! What is the maximum RPM your fans will spin at? It will help us a lot for choosing your radiators.
