Oh they Might fit... its another option.... Idea = Use towers in up/down configuration and then use two High CFM fans at the back to PULL the heat out (the top CPU would actually be pushing air Downwards towards the 120mms....

Definitely not pretty.... but what would i do about CPU1&CPU2.... two towers one on top of eachother, could do a push-thru-pull between them, but where do i push the air? To only has an 80mm.... bottom.... even less....

Yup, push-pull on the HSFs. If you create front-back airflow, the chips will be fine.

No, that's not what I meant. Push-pull vertically on the HSFs, but your case airflow front-to-back. Or heck punch a hole through the top of the case...

Again... watercooling = $500-600 or more... Air cooling is half that or less...
