Ok, hold up. I just saw on Corsiar's website that they have a 450D Obsidian case...which is, like, the 750D...only not quite as tall. I wonder if it would do what I want with this loop as well. The specs say it has space for a 360mm rad on top, 240/280mm on the front, 240mm on the bottom, full ATX motherboard space, and also has 5.25" front bays.

I've had a look at it and it looks like if I do push/pull on the top 360mm rad, I'd probably need to leave the 3rd push fan off in order to have an optical drive installed. That makes me think I should just do push on both rads and be done.

Thoughts? I like the idea of having the smallest case I can get away with that will fit everything in it. It needs to fit a 5.25" blu-ray drive, a 3.5" storage drive, and a 2.5" SSD drive.

Buy an external box for the BR drive.

I would rather have it inside the case, as I have had it since 1993 when we upgraded my father's 486 DOS computer with a Roland sound card and CD-ROM combo. If it wasn't for the requirement of the 5.25" drive bay, my case options would explode and I'd have more choices than I do chip brands at a grocery store.

Just a quicky, you dont need to to go rad - block - rad block

As its a sealed loop there is only a degree or so in it so Id hose it to be as tidy as possible

Ok, good point. But I thought routing it this way WAS the tidiest method. Those Fermi Cards are supposed to put out a LOT of heat under load (I can warm my feet in seconds during cold months by putting it behind my computer). I think the cards are rated around 240-watts each, so that's ~500 watts of heat to dissipate under load. That's why I was going to get the 360 rad just for those two cards. Honestly, the i7-860 at 113 watts is miniscule by comparison and having a 240mm radiator up front is severe over-kill to cool it.
