the phobya rad comes with two mounting plates, and you can simply use strong double sided tape (3M "tape of the gods" Bill Owen from MNPCTech uses) to attach the mounting plate to the frame of the fan...i replaced the corsair stock fan in my 650D with a bitfenix spectre pro and its frame has plenty of surface area where the tape would mount nicely :)

i've seen this done in a few 650D builds...this one's the only one i can seem to find right now: Corsair Obisidian 650D Water Cooled Build - The Corsair Support Forums

I hope you post some pictures when this is finished. I myself just ordered the Phobya 200mm rad for my 650D. From what I have read I shouldn't have much of a problem getting it in.

I'm glad I found these big radiators, I'm fairly new to water cooling and had no idea they made 180-200mm radiators until a few weeks ago. I was originally going to build a 'basement' area for the 650D to stand on, and put a quad 120mm rad in there. The 200mm rad will save me lots of work, and now everything will fit inside the case.
