My first plan of attack wont work because I couldn't find machine screws long enough in the correct size and threading, it came out to be about an inch too short.

Simplified version of my new idea: use a shelf to hold radiator above the case at the correct height. Use currently placed 120mm fan holes to secure shelf to top of case. Shelf will consist of 2 pieces of wood with little jut-outs for radiator to like on and screwed onto.

I thought about mounting on the bottom, but the mesh that is there is not continuous, so airflow would be resticted.

The only problem that I can see is that I dont have a table saw to cut the wood down to size, but I do have an old miter saw, hopefully I can carefully do the cuts correctly... Its all fun and games 'till I run out of money
