They do. You will have to wait till they verify everything and process your order. If they cannot process it they will let you know why.

So what Kind of screws do I need for my swiftech dual rad? I can't get the fans on X_X

And if the rad is upside down or up it doesn't matter right?

The screws included with the radiator should work. If they weren't included for some reason, I believe the size is 6-32. You'll want 1 1/4" length for 25mm fans - any longer and you'll puncture a radiator tube.

Look at Page 5. I made brackets is about 10 minutes, or you can find something at Home Depot or Lowe's you can mod.

Okay, got it to mount by modding the front panel case. Now, will putting the res. above the psu heat it up? I might do that (don't see any other p[lace to put it lol). Maybe screw it into the case brackets (it'll still touch the psu).

That's a non-issue. Acrylic isn't a very good heat conductor, so there won't be any problem with heating.

and why are the Noctua Fans magnetic? Aren't they bad for HDDs? I mean, their back is facing towards my MoBo (I have yet to reinstall) Could this be bad? The back has the magnets BTW.

The bearings are magnetic. You can check out their company webpage for a more detailed explanation, but in brief, the magnetic fields are very localized, and only used to minimize motor friction and noise. So no need to worry about that.

K, just need to tube it and then fill it with water, I hope I didn't puncture the rad lol. I'll make sure to leak test to (do you really need to do it for 24 hours? Seems like overkill lol, but if that's what it takes...)
