I'm going to be cooling a R-290X and a 4670k and i'm wondering what case you guys think i should get.

I'm currently looking at the Phanteks enthoo primo and i'm wondering what other cases you guys think i should look at.

360mm and 240mm is the min i would do (But in this price range pretty much everything should hold that) Moar rads = Moar better

So recommend anything you think would be nice.

Here is the loop and setup i'm thinking of using.

On another note how do you think i should setup my loop in the Phanteks if i do decide to get that case? The pump goes in the back.
