As for the radiator, just get a heatercore, it's much cheaper and performs the same as the black ice. It's less restrictive to the fan also.

You might have to take out a HDD rack or something to fit it in... I dunno. We need to know how much room you have.

^^^ Actually, a heatercore outperforms a Black Ice Pro or Black Ice Extreme (called BIP and BIX for future reference). I single 120mm heatercore will perform much, much better than a BIP, and outperform a BIX by a couple of degrees, assuming you have the same fans on each. I double heatercore will outperform anything on the market (that will fit in a computer case).

I think I'm going to get the Double Heatercore along with a DangerDen D4 Pump, Swiftech MCW6002-P CPU Block and the DangerDen 6800 GPU Block. I was trying to figure out where inside my case I could possible fit this monstrous thing and I had an idea. Depending on how heavy it is, is it possible to mount it on the side window?

I'd just build a custom case for the top of your computer, thats what I'm doing since I can't fit much into my case. Damn designers, too bad i didn't know what i do now.

The BIX 3 actually performs online with a double heatercore.
