I'm going to buy the NZXT Hades case and the Antec H2O 620 CPU Water Cooler
http://www.nzxt.com/new/products/crafted_series/hades
http://www.antec.com/Believe_it/product.php?id=Mjc2OA==...

The case is kinda tight so I'm going for watercooling but push&pull does'nt fit in it because of the 200mm side intake fan

But should I make the Radiator Fan Exhaust or Intake? I will install 2 140mm exhaust fans at the top and there's one 200mm fan at the front

Never had Watercooling before :)

I have an Antec P183 and us a Corsair H80 in a push/pull setup as intake. One exhaust fan up top and an intake on the front panel. All the fans are on a fan controller and rotate at 1000RPM for max quiet. I have less exhaust fans running at lower speeds and it is alright in my PC...You'll be good in that setup. Don't forget that the air will naturally ventilate thru holes/cracks even if the exhaust fans can't move as much air as your intake fans. ;)
