Not to mention the fact that I can't put a standard 3.5" drive in, which would be pretty nice as right now I only have a 5400rpm 320GB laptop 2.5" drive in. I'd say I was just too enamoured with its looks that I didn't really think about it logically. Lack of proper planning on my part.
Ah yeah. Never thought one would use a SFF case for a full water cooling setup. I thought the H60 was the biggest people tried on the v354.

unless your 460 is a single slot wide card like this ...
then NO, it will be covered over by the width of the video card.

Figured this would be the right place to ask this, could I fit 2 6950 TF3s on this board?

ON the board ... yeah ... IN your case might be the concern for some ?
but not you with that Thermaltake Xaser VI. You should be good to go I think.

Well I'll be getting rid of my current case but I'll def get one that can fit the two cards. Thanks though, looks like I'll be shrinking my pc's footprint significantly.

Budget isn't a real issue. The only reason I don't have a SSD in this build is because the drive I want isn't released yet.

It's not ground breaking that I did a custom loop, but I tinker with my pc's too much to have to deal with taking my entire rig apart whenever I want to do something as simple as add a second 2.5" drive.

What SSD drive would that be ? curious upgradable minds would like to know should I hold off getting that Crucial 128 GB M4 ? The Corsair's and OCZ's seem to have WAY TOO MANY problems and issue's, and the Intel's & Plextor's are kind of expensive, with Intel having some issue's also. I haven't read up on too many complaints with the Crucial's ?

Corsair Force GT 240GB. If that is close to the cost then I won't buy it. That is outrageous. But if its price is around other 240-256GB in its performance bracket, it is the one I will probably get. If not, I will get another 510. I am hugely satisfied with the 120GB I have already.
