    I hope you know that with that case if you use the rad mounts in the roof you can't use any PCI cards... it blocks off a fair bit of the mobo..

    yeah, it does suck quite a lot, it will also be very tight with all the water gear i want, and seeing the quad rad today im not sure 2 will fit, hense the need for the new case :)

    I'd spin the Hard drives round and route the SATA wires behind the mobo tray! :)

    To mee this watercooling looks like absolute extreme overkill. Maybe the biggest I have seen yet.

    Why the heck would you want 3 loops 1 with a quad rad is nearing overkill for your system.

    3 Quad Rads! that has to be a first, what you planning on putting in each of the loops?

    At the moment i got a single 120.3 bix, that manages fine with an overclocked Q6600, dual 8800GTX and the chipsets, 3x 120.4's is a bit much.
