That radiator is going to likely have a hard time keeping both the 4870's and a quad core cool.

And trying to fit all that in the 900 is going to be a barrel o laughs.

My advice, buy a nice big full tower case and a cpu only loop. Then when you have the money add the gpu's to the loop.

Now if your dead set on keeping the 900, there's only one place you'll be able to put the rad. Hanging it off the back of the case with the barbs at the top and going directly into the case just above the fan mount where the pre drilled holes are.

If I help you with something, you think I'm the bomb, or you just like what I said, rep me by clicking the star under my post.

or build a WC box! all the cool kids are doing it!

I like antec cases but they are really dreadful for watercooling, so I am building my WC box this vacation. Been planning awhile and already have all my black acrylic here marked out for cutting.

About 9 fans will be pulling air through rads where normally 5 fans would be mounted.

lol... i though it was gonna be an external mount anyways!

i'd make some mad tornado box for the rad... be like a mad vortex, but it wouldnt help that much with the MCRs... they're optimised for low pressure, so their performance tops out without ALOT of air movement
