One of the things that I'm sure we all will agree on, is that if you want an internal water cooling solution (inc radiator) its hard to find the space inside your case.

I'm not currently aware of any manufacturer that has teamed up with a case manufacturer. It would be great if a case came with the necessary holes and mounting points to make fitting a watercooling solution easier.

I like the idea SwiftTech has on their site, where the radiator sits outside your case, but attached to the back panel. That means that the 2 120mm fans cool the radiator, but also stimulate case airflow. The problem is trying to find a case that you don't have to cut in order to do this......

Swiftech itself used to sell barebones kits, but I was just checking the site now, and there was no sign of them.

Koolance offers barebones, check here: http://www.koolance.com/products/produc ... egory_id=2 There are several pages of them. Was that what you were looking for?

Heh, I like that kind of look in computer cases.

I used to like beige, I guess I'm still trying to get that out of my system ;)

there's a neat kit from coolermaster that stuffs everything into the space of 2x 5 1/4" drive bays - looks very nice and seems to work as well, would be as easy to install as a cdrw drive.

Koolance doesn't have a good reputation... They use Al for their components, which isn't good w/ Cu blocks. Their plumbing is small bore and restrictive, and they (at least in stock form) tend to be loud. Or so I've seen reported.

I would also be unhappy with a box that put the rad where it was 'cooled' by air that was pre-warmed by going through the case....
