I suggested to the shop that we put the radiator outside of the case. Unfortunately the hoses aren't quite long enough and you'd have to disconnect them to get through the back of the case. Certainly a better idea but not possible without taking the sealed H60/H80/H100 apart.

You might be able to do it if you had a big enough cut-out to feed the head through the back of the case. Looking at the picture of Arvid's that looks like what he did.

It looks like he cut the fan grill and passed the radiator through that hole

The best solution that I've found for me are the CoolMaster HAF-32 cases having 2. The front, side & top fans are 230x30 @ 1,700 rpm. The front and side inhale and the top exhales. The psu has its own exhaust port. Both machines use the Corsair H70 cooling system, in a push/pull configuration, which keeps the CPUs in the mid 60c. With the CPU at the top of the mobo & case, what extra heat is created is immediately exhausted by the top fan. Because of where the room sits in the house and no a/c, I'm seriously considering upgrading to the H100 before this summer when the room can get to mid 90s F. I will probably have to find some way to have it outside of the case, so that I can keep the top exhaust. Both are running on 6 cores w/ 2 for GPU processing 24/7.

I have a HAFX, with a reversed top fan, its sucking in.. Antec 620 watercooler in pushpull on a FX6120, before I reversed the top fan the cpu was running WU at about 45/47C and core temps of 30/32C after reversal I'm getting 40/41C overall and 27C core..

My only problem right now is keeping my GPU's at below 85C when running them at 96% on APv6 cuda..
