Put radiator at air imput?

Hi, I'm going to be making my first build using this case http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811133192
There's just one problem, I can't find any radiators that are 140mm (exhaust fans).

Even if I did put it on imput wouldn't it be better for the cpu because it would pull cooler air, and with those massive 200mm fans would airflow really matter?

    Unless you attempt to water cool the whole computer, it could overheat, as high temperatures created by the cpu would be blowing on your GPU's and all of the other stuff.

    Try this radiator from DangerDen: http://www.dangerden.com/store/black-ice-sr1-140.html

    Everything else you NEED:

    Depending on the type of cpu, you may need to use different types of water blocks: http://www.dangerden.com/store/intel-and-amd-cpu-water-blocks/
    Pump: http://www.dangerden.com/store/dd-cpx_pro-12v_pump.html
    Fans (For push-pull): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835146020 (x2)
    Tubing: http://www.dangerden.com/store/clearflex-60-tubing.html
    Liquid: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/6996/ex-liq-75/Feser_One_Non_Conductive_Cooling_Fluid_-_1000_ml_-_UV_Blue_F1-0001.html?tl=g30c103s702


    That should be everything. Plus, you can also add water cooling to your RAM, GPU's, hard drives, all that kind of stuff.

    BUT!!!
    If you aren't a professional at water cooling, try this one from corsair: http://www.corsair.com/cpu-cooling-kits/hydro-series-water-cooling-cpu-cooler/hydro-series-h80-high-performance-liquid-cpu-cooler.html, its a bit smaller (120 mm), but you should be able to patch it into the case with zip ties.

    I hope this helps! :)

    I can just ghetto zip tie it in? That sounds great! lol Well thanks for the help and helping others who pass by.
