I recently picked up an RV03 on a whim for use in a future build. What I was wondering in particular was the suitability of the case for a custom watercooling setup.

While I know most parts wouldn't have an issue fitting inside the case, I wouldn't want to assemble my loop and find that it's performing poorly.

I'll most likely only be cooling the CPU for now and possibly my GPU in the future (Perhaps 2x240 or 1x240 and 1x120 rads).

So good people of Tom's Hardware, I ask you this: Is trying to watercool my RV03 a pointless endeavor or do you think it'll work just fine?

Thanks in advance!

No. Silverstone you can put only 2*180mm radiators. + one smaller to top.

Silverstone do have better case to water cool build.

Look this build for example:

There is also models that do have 3*180mm fans and this is better way to go.

I think there is an adapter so you can turn the bottom 180mm mounts into a 360mm mount of radiators. Then you have the 120mm mount at the top of the case.
You have a decent amount of rad space in that rig, no more than I do in my HAF-X (at stock :) ) No doubt if your willing to drill some some holes you could easily hang a 480mm off the back panel.
