Well, seeing as how you said the Rad is a Swiftech, the NZXT Tempest is rated to Mount that Rad Internally as well.

Just a thought at least,
Gives a decent result for a WC internal Mount, again though to each their own on this.
If money is no object, then get something Silverstone or Coolermaster.

I have this case and have it internally mounted. It works alright but the 140mm fans above the rad don't really help much, I would mount some on the bottom as well. Also it's a VERY tight squeeze with the GTZ, as in they touch. Other than that it's an alright case, I like the looks of it and painted it all black. The pic is a few months old, cleaned up the cables since then.

Very Nice , the stock 140's I usually replace with AeroCool Streamliners for better static pressure and Airflow.
And, well the blue glow.

Just my thoughts, looks tight, but you have a lot of stuff in there lol.

Yeah I'm going to replace them with some fans very soon. Also going to buy a molex "switch" because my pc is too bright at night for me to sleep. If you want a better internal pic let me know. Like I said I would maybe look at a different CPU block that doesn't get so close to the rad. If I ever have to remove something I basically have to take everything apart. *knocks on wood*

I think your setup looks really nice, Although myself I've been a 3/8 tubing kinda person, for a little more room in the case, but that looks nice.
