Lol that case is "okay" for air or water cooling.. It's not really a favorite of most of us here... try looking at a NZXT switch 810/820 or the Fractal arc midi r2 for a smaller loop. There are more cases but modding will be required.

Did you pick the 820 over the 810? 810 IMO is a better case but the 820 is just a more expensive version in it simply for the extra lighting features.

yes i dont have a budget issue here.. my issue is knowledge .. which you guys have . so from u i learned that nzxt 810 or 820 is good so 820 is fine with me ... but hey i heard people are having trouble mounting a truiple rad at the top of nzxt 820 and they have to move the rad towards the 5.25 bay thus forcing people to not put anything in the bay because of no space . please clear that out for me ..

so please then let me know which rad would be completely compatible without modding my case ( since i cannt do ) and any good fans as well .. thanks

hey i looked it up again .. nzxt switch 810 is much suiting with my needs.. i really really really really REALLY needed a case which had a clear side window so that i can show off my rig from inside.. ...

OK NZXT 810 IS A GO FOR SURE

The 810 is a perfect choice!

ok. Now since we have a start point that the case would be NZXT 810 .. what radiators should be used for top and bottom for cooling ?

Hi yonus1932,

I put a 360 alphacool monsta in the roof of a switch 810. It is possible but requires some dremelling so if you want to do it without any modification you might want to choose a 60mm rad. or a 45mm rad if you wish to go push pull.

If you're willing to give up the bottom lot of drive cages you can fit any 240 or 280 rad in the floor. However a 280 and a long PSU (corsair AX1200i etc) will not work and a 240 and a long PSU will be a tight fit.

There are plenty of watercooled 810s in the rig gallery if you want to browse what other people have done. Just be sure to check with them if they made any modifications to get it all to fit.

Also what is your goal, do you want a silent rig or are you going for a noisy one with massive cooling potential. Radiators work differently with different fan speeds so it'll help with peoples suggestions if they know.

Cheers,
Ulijin.

If you're going switch 810 you *need* to watch Tom's video, he has literally EVERYTHING covered on it for water cooling the Switch.

hey ulijin i just need to overclock my cpu with the most safe voltage and overclock a little bit my gpu as well .. and the only only thing i do is play BF3 and now play BF4 and the next thing i do is render videos in song vegas. And THATS IT ! . so tell me if i can achieve this ting little task with a silent rig , yes personally i do prefer silent rig but to do my task that is play bf3 or bf4 with maximum fps and to get that even silent rigs will work then i am fine with that.

Pick a case first though. We can't really help you if you don't choose a starting point for you or us.
Which SP120s are you talking about? PEs or QEs?

I have the Quiet Editions and they're silent for me, and I'm massively picky when it comes to fans and noise...
