Well enaberif is right, but enaberif he has the Aurora 570, imo is it quite much better than the first version... I have the case myself, offcourse nothing compared to yours lol.. but still it has descent space. Functionality, its better than other cases to say the least, it is a nice case.

Tubing: 1/2" or 3/8", up to you. Primochill ProLRT works good for me.

Grab all metal fittings from D-TEK, Danger Den, Bitspower, whoever. Just don't use plastic crap.

Not sure if it would fit internally or not, rad might need to hang off the back with a RadBox or something.
Perfect suggestions, as for the tubing the cheap ones like Clearflex 1/2" do work quite well.. But Primochill is on its own league man, pretty good tubing.. I personally have D-Tek barbs and can say it is well built, no probs whatsoever. Bitspower, is the best out there, you can't regret them..

As for the setup, yea a radbox would definitely work, or you can cut a hole on the top of the case and mount it that way, or just cut holes for the fan holes on top, and mount it.. It might be a tight fit if you do or in the future decide to get a huge psu, one of those long 1kw ones, then it might be a tight fit, offcourse you could always leave the first couple spaces in the 5 1/4" bays empty for passing the tubing.. That case can be worked around, it just needs some tools, and patience.
