    Erm... @Tachi13?

    You may want to take a second look at his post. OP is planning on installing this 120mm AIO. And even if he wanted to install 120mm fan in the back, I just don't see that happening. According to specs his case is only 16,3cm wide. A big part of that is taken by motherboard and the components on it.

    Looks like the original rear fan is 80mm or 92mm at the most. The following pic is borrowed from Amazon and has the same specs as his system.



    If this is the rear end of his system, I see no space for a 120mm fan. And because of the location of the PSU, installing the radiator with a fan on the top might not be possible.

    Summa summarum: I say not possible, unless OP is willing to do lots of modifications (cut metal and some plastics). But please, do prove me wrong. I like modding things as much as the next guy! ^^

    Sure, you can do that. If you are planning to take out the system fan in the back of the cabinet for the Be quiet 120MM fan, you can do that. Just be careful when you're tightening those screws together while fitting the thermal plate on the cpu, if the cooler came with pre applied thermal paste, that's fine, if not make sure you use a good quality thermal paste and carefully screw the four ends. Good luck, upgrading them yourself and then looking at the result is a good feeling though. Happy gaming!

    Different PO3 models have different cases. Which PO3-xxx-xxxx model do you have?

    I know you aren't asking me, but the pic and measurements I used are from Predator Orion 3000 with similar specs the OP listed. Having owned and tinkered with a newer PO3, I just don't see how a 120mm fan (and even less 120mm AIO) would fit without some serious case modifications.

    since that cpu cooler will not fit from the information I've gathered, does anyone have any cpu cooler recommendations that will fit?
