Upon opening and using the case, you will know that your OVERPRICED case is well worth it.

Did they get tired of seeing people using their motherboard trays to make their own bench cases? ;)

As far as mounting a rad goes... easy enough to drill a few holes in the side of the motherboard tray to mount the rad using the fan screws.

You beat me to it

Dunno about that. Certainly interesting, but even if you're not looking for radiator mounting, there's not exactly a lot of places to mount things like fans. HDD cables will have to routed sideways and around, or they'll block one of the 5.25" slots. And it looks a little back-heavy when you get some bigger GPU's and heavier CPU heatsinks, although that could just be the angle.

Default Radiator mounting?

If you look on the lian-li website, there's a dual 120mm fan bracket that mounts so it blows over the motherboard, A 240 rad would bolt onto the back of that easy. You could also go for a 360 or 480, but it would overhang like a mofo.

It look like it will fall over when you push your pci-e cards into your motherboard.
