Default Antec 900 Water cool mod

Hey everyone! Expect this thread to take a while to finish! I have never modded anything before, but I am really looking forward to it!

I have chosen my watercooling parts that I want, as suggested by aspire. They are as follows:
Petra's Tech Shop

I am just looking for an intro into water, so this kit fits me perfectly.

I plan on doing some painting of the interior black, to have the overall blackness, and I want to do some wire management mods so it is neat. I also plan on doing Blue UV lighting inside. I plan on doing some mods like this person did:
A Positive Look at the Antec Nine Hundred (900) Case - XtremeSystems Forums

** I also need to get a rad attached on the back of my case! Anyone know of any worklogs that show that being done? thank you for your help!

I am also wondering what is the best way to get UV lighting in my case evenly.

I plan on doing more reading, and starting this either late this coming week, or easter weekend. And then I have spring break, so I can get a fair amount done that week. I probably wont be able to order my w/c until after that week, so like I said, may be a long term thread, but here it is! Thanks for reading, and all the help I have gotten so far. I really appreciate it!

I plan on making it that way, because I cant afford a new case and I want to try to mod for once, instead of getting something easy


*if I did double post, someone delete the other* *I did not mean to...*

why do you need a worklog for attaching a rad to the back of your case?

doesn't the 900 have only 1 120mm fan area in the back? where are you going to fit it there!? (I'm pretty sure i've asked this elsewhere before, but im tired)

I am going to hang it off the back. It isnt going to be in the case. I have seen a 900 with a rad hung off the back, but I dont know where.

And I want to light my case up, to make it look real nice. I just know that I will have lots of questions.

how... upwards against the PSU? sideways off the case? down blocking the expansion slots?

Just think of mounting the rad on the rear 120mm exhaust fan slot, externally.

no, I am gonna hang it off the back, like you would imagine that it will block the expansion slots, but it will stick off the top a few inches. It is 11.2 in tall, and 5 wide...

but where else could I put it? I am always open to ideas
here is a pic of where it would be (the rad being 11.2 inches, and stopping where the expansion slots stop. It will most likely go higher than off the top) or I could put it somewhere else? Anyone have any* ideas?
