Will this Radiator water cooler fit in this tower i will be purchasing.
I am concerned that the radiator witht he fans on them will be too thick to put on the top vents of this case, and the tubes will be too short if i were to mount the radiator on the front. Will this cooler fit and not run into my motherboard or will i have to return it and get a new, thinner one?
Thankyou for any help!

I want to apologize for the wording (might sound a bit harsh).
here are some useful info about the Enso case: https://www.youtube.com/watch
Here is a nice video for the case research: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IqoGsaYJIzU

As for cooling, liquid cooling is not necessary at all. There are usecases for the liquid cooling like very small cases with powerful HW.
They are also nice to have for cleaner look around CPU area, but they have many disadvantages as well.
As for performance, normalized to 40db (you don't want jet engine sound in your room) good air coolers usually do better than AiOs.
Custom loops could be a bit better (keep components cooler at lower noise), but they are expensive - decent custom loop for CPU only would start at ~300$. But those involve maintenance.
Don't get me wrong, I love liquid cooling (click the "System" word in my signature) but it is more of a hobby. An expensive one to be honest.
It means that if you are on a budget (read fixed amount of money), it would be better spent elsewhere (GPU, PSU, SSD, MB, case, RAM).
Which cooling you SHOULD pick is up to you. I'm just providing an info so you could make an educated decision.
My choice of cooler would be something like Noctua NH-U14s.
There are also very good coolers from Be Quiet!, Cryorig and many others.
 
this case is probably the most useless shinny toy.
it's one of the worst for cooling.
the wannabe liquid cooler is also overpriced crap.
a good case would be Fractal Design Define C TG or the Meshify C.
A decent air cooler (50-80$) will do the same job at lower noise than this wannabe liquid.

dang, actually thankyou for pointing that out, i was a bit rushed as i had little research to do before the sales had ended. ill probably be returning both items and checking out that Fractal Design Define C. do you have any reccomendations for cooling? Also, is water cooling necessary, or should i get a fan cooler?
