Graphite Series 760T Liquid Cooling Install?

I have three Graphite Series 760T cases in use and a 4th in a box that I'm planning to use for a new build, the existing three I'm using several different AIO coolers attached to the top of the chassis but this one would be my first full liquid cooling build. Most often when I see pictures of liquid cooled systems I see the radiator attached to the front of the chassis rather than the top, does the 760T support this? I'm looking at various kits and radiators and for instance is a 64mm a possibility?

 

Likewise where and how would I mount the pump / reservoir, something like this:

Yes, you should be able to fit a 280mm radiator on the front intake. You will have to watch out for the in/out tubes and end cap. I am not sure how tight that will be, but the risk is to the lowest 5.25 drive bay. That might have to come out for more space.

 

Most people are going to mount the pump radiator combo in the gap between the end of GPU/motherboard and the front drive array. This could be done on a pedestal, on top of the drive slots below, or theoretically it could be strapped to the back of the front radiator.

 

Unfortunately, this stuff can be a bit fiddly and tiny little details matter. If you have 4 of them, you are beyond me and knowing the case is not the same as having it physically in front of you to measure and assess.

Thanks, I'm not going to have so many drives that I need both drive cages so I can remove the one closest to the front to make room for the radiator and pump / reservoir. I'll have to take the one in the box out and take a look and make some measurements and see if there are any predrilled holes in the bottom for me to attach the bracket for the pump and reservoir. I imagine that with the fans in the front all I need is fans in the rear of the radiator to help pull air through it?

Yes, the fans can go on either side of the radiator. The 760T came with AF140 LED fans. Loved them in the day and still have a soft spot for them, but they are terrible radiator fans. You are going to want to use something more appropriate for a radiator with fewer, flatter blades, like the ML fan series. Most of those types tend to be PWM and will not work with any case DC fan controller. I know the 780T has one. I thought the 760 did as well.
