    [SOLVED] Possible to build water cooling in Sharkoon VG6-W?

    Like the title says, is it possible to build a 240mm watercooler (Corsair Hydro Series H100x) in the Sharkoon VG6-W case? If yes, how would you do it (ex: First the Radiator, then Fans exhaust)? And additionally would that water cooler be good for my CPU?
