Hi guys!
I wanna know whether my case is compatible with the Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML240L RGB Liquid CPU Cooler and more like this or not but I wanna put 2xCORSAIR ML140 PRO RGB Fans and Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML240L RGB Liquid CPU Cooler together in my Gigabyte Sumo Alpha Mid-Tower Casing so is this possible?


Note:
I'm completely new to PC liquid/water cooling so I'm not sure how this works but I have two CORSAIR ML140 PRO RGB Fans already installed in my case so I wanted to know will these work with Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML240L RGB Liquid CPU Cooler or any other liquid cooler or not!

PC parts which I wanna put together:
Gigabyte Sumo Alpha Mid-Tower Casing
2xCORSAIR ML140 PRO RGB Fans
1xCooler Master MasterLiquid ML240L RGB Liquid CPU Cooler

First thing, if you are asking about CPU cooler you should say which CPU and MB. Much of it depends on it.
Second thing, case fans have nothing to do with CPU coolers and their fans. Any combo is possible.
I have a Gigabyte B150M-D3H motherboard and I will be buying an i7 7700!

And you mean that I can place this Liquid Cooling together with my 2x140mm Case fans?

Difference between most case fans and radiator fans is something called static pressure. You wan "high static pressure" fans for a radiator. That said, some case fans come with those types of fans and can be used for a radiator.

I'm new to this too, but I've seen just one fan (thermaltake riing) that comes with a case but is high static pressure. Doesn't mean it's the only one though, check yours.

According to case stats:

Top : 120mm x2
Bottom : 120mm x1
Front: 120mm x1
Rear: 120mm x1

So doubt you'll get the ML140 Pro to work, you'd need LL120 RGB, which is the same fans that come on the ML240L.

But here's another issue. That B150 does not have RGB headers, so you'd need something like the lighting node pro (comes with a 3pack of fans) to get the RGB working.

The casing top has both options for 120mm and 140mm fans and rest of the case fans are 120mm and yes the lighting node pro also came with my RGB fans and I have installed these RGB fans with it already!

You can't use 140mm fans on a 240mm radiator. You'll need 120mm fans.
Oh that's sad but what about the two 120mm fans that come with the 240mm radiatior already as for example if I have already 2x120mm fans are fitted on the top of the case instead of 140mm fans then will I have to remove them and then I can place 2x120mm fans which come with the 240mm radiator or I can place these 2x120mm radiator fans below those 2x120mm fans without removing?
