    I have an Antec 300 and i have been looking at some water cooling kits. I am looking at the Swiftech 220 compact and i want to put it in the front of the case if possible without mods if it won't fit there is there any place else i could put it IN THE CASE WITH NO MODS?
    also would the case fit all the water cooling stuff?will be cooling CPU only


    here is a link to the case

    The radiator would pretty much have to be external, as you will need room for the pump and resevoir.

    unless you knock out the drive bays it wont fit

    you could skip the kit and do dual 120mm rads one in the back adn one at the top of the case

    I had the 120 version of that kit. I can't see a way to mount the 240 rad/res inside the case w/o a mod.

    You could just get a radbox for the back to mount the radiator to.
