IMHO would put rad outside of case with barbs on bottom, with fans blowing away from case using fan the spacer as in your photo but the sides opened up on spacer

also use the res type rad Q mcr for the ez of bleeding/filling

I would mount the rad on the lower right corner, I see 2 fans there it would be a perfect place for the rad, and it out of the way.

I'd keep it there or move it to the front as Vinnie suggested. Internal >> External (looks prettier)

I had the rad on the lower right corner,i did not like it over there because no air came inside the case.After i moved the rad like KaptCrunch said i did not like it that way either.Yesterday i cleaned up my computer and i saw that i can fit the rad where it is now.I just removed the rivets and installed over there.Now my future plan is to powder coat the case inside.
I just bought this card :NCIX.com - Buy Sapphire Radeon HD 4890 850MHZ 1GB 975MHZ GDDR5 PCI-E DVI HDMI Display Port Video Card - 11150-11-20R In Canada. what water block i can buy for this?

P.S.
Do you guys now a place to powder coat in Mississauga or Oakville area?


Sory for my bad english.

That case could use some cable managment. I'm with Vinnie, go internal 4 fans push/pull. You can have the rad mounted in front, barbs on the bottom. Them turn your pump around so that it feeds directly into the rad. That would also leave you the option of adding a third rad later on, on the back 120 exhuast fan.

I agree about cable managment:biggrin:.I want to buy a new power supply,and that's way i did not do it.Regarding the rad position:I want some cool air to come inside the case to.
