Default Case Holes for Water Cooling pipes

With Project : PZYCHO B!TCH II , I am planning to modding the case so that it's ready for water cooling when I go that far. I under stand that you need to have 2 holes for the pipes to go in and then out in the back of your case.

What sizes do these holes need to be? (In metric plz)

i think lol 1/2 tubing is like 13mm. Pretty much everyone uses 1/2 more then 3/4. So i guess its 13mm holes

With your case, you won't need to cut out any holes for external parts since you have a TON of room to work with. If you use parts from dangerden the whole thing should be internal and the only holes you'll need to drill will be to mount the pump and radiator
