i dont know how many people have faced my same problem also but i'm sure a few have. how to fit a water cooling system in a tiny little atx case. i had to cram. i dont even have an inline system. i got a 4x4 underground electrical box to house the pump, a danger den maze block, and a 12x5 transmission cooler for a radiator. (too big but the price was not) i put the reservior towards the front under my hdd's and cdroms. tight squeeze. as for the radiator, i choose to mount it to the case cover. i did not want hot air going in my radiator or in my case, that is dumb. so i drilled some holes in the cover, and used zip ties to hold it on. its sturdier than i thought it would be. there is about a one inch gap between the radiator and case to let air flow through. i drilled holes in the back of the case and put in some plastic 3/8 two way nipples for the hoses. all in all it looks pretty nice. i can get pics if needed.
