    Officially this case does not support a 360mm, ended up drilling out the rivets on the top panel to get enough room to work with to angle it in, and one on the bottom panel for end tank clearance.

    If your radiator is any larger than an XR5, it won't fit (either in height or thickness)

    Waiting on a multi port 240mm to put in the top to work double duty as a reservoir.

    After all of this I'm tempted to just do a triple 240 NR200, darn my indecisiveness.

    Multiport 240x36mm in up top. Doesn't fit with the fans on the inside. There is probably enough space for a 280mm AIO up here, epseically when using an mATX board with DIMM slots which are much lower.
    Just enough space to fit a thermocouple fitting in the front of the top radiator too.

    Built for noise reduction, not temps. My 3900X is an absolute pig, still hits 80C stock and 90C overclocked (single core temps, all core is about 10C lower), on the Wraith Prism it actually thermal throttled at 100C totally stock. That's at about 35C fluid temp so it's pretty much on par or slightly worse for Ryzen. GPU basically never goes over 45C.
    Have fans to ramp from 500RPM@30C to 1200RPM@40C fluid. Gaming loads are around 36-37C but a full power stress test will reach 40C.

    Im struggling to understand the Flow, so top rad acts as res which feeds to pump > down to gpu > cpu > gpu > 360 rad > top rad?
