Answer:
radiator mounts inside the case where the back case fan is. So you need a case which has 120mm back case fan. which removed is replaced by radiator.
I don't have corsair cooler, but I have somewhat similar system from Coolit Eco ALC. They look almost ideentical. Though the pump of that system is humming and I can hear it and I don't like it. I am not saying that Corsair has the same pump though.
It cools my cpu very well. It is for my secondary PC, so there is no OC.
So I expect Corsair unit to be same or better at cooling and maybe noise.

So now that I have the basic setup somewhat handled on my machine, I'm now looking at liquid cooling options. The unit I have in mind is the Corsair CWCH50 that employs a radiator.

Does anyone have one of these? How does the radiator mount? On the side panel or in the case. I'm expecting to fabricate some bracketry to mount it near the side panel but not on it and then add ducting to improve airflow and efficiency.

How good are these things in stock form?

Thanks in advance.

Cool, now I know what to expect. I figure Im going to fabricate a leak pan around it with a reservoir just in case.......

I've done enough heater cores on cars to know that those little radiators don't last forever. I guess now I will just have to figure out where to mount the nitrous kit!
(just kidding).
