so prebuilts are good now? whatever, the petra kits are sold out. Are there any other good kits that have the adapter for the radiator to put in the back of the case? Or if someone configured some parts that would be great. I'm kinda new with this water cooling stuff and don't know what the best parts are.

Okay, if you dont know much about w/c then dont do it right now. That is the best advice to follow, read as many guides as you can. Hang out at the extreme cooling forum, I cant remember their web address but someone I hope can refresh me on it.

Theres a couple pics to give you some ideas.
My radiator is mounted on the back of my case and the tubing runs through the rear in.

The random tubing that t's off from right in front of the pump is my t-line. The end is just stuck up in a drive bay.

btw, that petras kit you linked IS in stock at tis point, just a lil heads up.

and if you do end up buying from them just let em know that aspire.comptech forwarded you there. Im local to them, and know the two owners personally.

i was looking a picture of the radbox installation and i noticed that it shows the fans sucking in air from the PC. is there a way i can have the fans sucking in air from outside the PC without drilling and holes in my case? Also, is there a way i can still use my 120mm fan in the back of my comp? or do i have to take that out for the radbox?

If you took a look at my pictures, you will note that for my radiator mounting, i have two fans on the outside edge of the rad pulling air through, while using the two 120mm fans inside my case to blow air through the rad.

if you want to have them blowing youd just have to flip them over so they blow the other way.

and yes you can still use your 120mm fan, youll just need to get creative with the mounting.
