Water-cooling with the NZXT Phantom?

Is there any water-cooling system compatible with the NZXT Phantom (just the Phantom, not the 420, 530, etc) without any modification?

I've been googling it, and all of the videos and forums I see, guys are shoving radiators under the case fans, but above the WC fans, and letting the radiator hang, which leaves very little space inside the case that required low profile ram. Or just using zips to secure the radiator through the top, if they didn't drill different holes into the case. Worst case scenario, I'll have to drill a few holes for the Corsair H100i, which I wouldn't really have a problem doing, if I owned a drill, or have drilled through anything in my life. I just don't want to throw 110 dollars away if I screw the case up AND not be able to set up a radiator.


Normally I wouldn't want to do this, but the Phantom is sooo preettttyyyyyyyyy.

Thats exactly as its supposed to be mounted.

Any 240mm or 120mm rad unit should work with the Phantom.

I have the 630 and yours appears to have the same specs for fans on top (2 x 200mm). I installed a Thermaltake Water 2.0 cooler which is big to the top and removed the two 200mm fans. There is some holes in between the two fan cutouts that you can mount it to. NE has them on sale right now for $60 after RB http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
