Default Case for water cooling?

Right now I have a thermaltake case. It's pretty large but I don't see anywhere I can mount my radiator (2x120mm) easily. The only thing I can think of doing it cutting a hole in the top of the case and mount the radiator inside with the fans on the outside of the case.

Right now I have the radiator sitting on top of the case so I can't put the side on. Are there any cases out there that I could easily mount this radiator on?

Thanks

Here's mine w/ the PCG75:



It's a huge case, but if you're looking for radiator room it has it! I'd suggest checking out the Lian Li line; there might be one smaller that would suit your needs better.

Do you use any water additives? If so, which would you recommend?

Pentosin and PTNuke are what I use. Pentosin is an anti-corrosive, and PTNuke is a biocide. This is a reputable site that you can order them from; I've done a ton of business with these guys:

hey thats the same stuff I use Petra is awesome! Definately recommended

love how clean your rig looks Xion

My TJ-09 is freaking awesome for water cooling, I am using a MCR220, had to get some 2.5" corner brackets to mount it to the top of the case but I didn't have to mod anything I wish I had a camera to post pics.

I don't know of a case, but I know the best fan you can buy is the ultra performance panaflo, or if noise bothers you, you can get a quiter one at the expense of ~7rpm.

That would work well as an (only) exhaust fan.

Yep, you had the benefit of not having to cut the top of yours like I did mine.
