Definitely a big rad! Makes your case look small in comparison. I would cut the top to the exact shape of the rad and then I would use acrylic template to hold it up part way in and out with stand off's. Would look so cool! Especially if you use LED's to light up the acrylic!

Especially since just that brick alone carries 1.5 litres of water itself!

This is 1.3L of coolant plus 4.5kg of copper, so about 6 kg....

I'm thinking about two possibilities:

Remove hard drive cage and place rad on the bottom, PSU up
or
Remove both hard drive cage and 5.25" cage and position rad vertically.

For the second option I loose all optical drives, but may have better flow and more fresh air.
