Split the rads up IMO makes a more clean appearance instead of Jam packing massive Rads everywhere. Top/Bottom/DriveBays/Rear rads everywhere, but still looks surprisingly not cluttered.

That is certainly sexy. I need my dreams to stop being so expensive tongue.gif I've still got $250 left in my $300 budget (selling parts = win), so I don't think I can work out dual rads. I don't even think I can work out a single 240 with a good 6950 block. But I'm trying.

All I want is a simple internal loop for CPU and gpu - my stupid processor won't run stable above 4.0 even with my giant 120 extreme on it. And I want it in a black interior case that allows REAL cable management.
That being said, I need to be able to do this as cheaply as possible, and I'm already really sad that the price of a case is getting tacked on.
I am open to all suggestions and will be giving out rep like Halloween candy for posts that help me get to where I need to go.
Main priorities: something that looks CLEAN inside. Adequate cooling to handle as much OCing as possible. Hopefully under $300 (not set in stone, just a target to mitigate as much gf aggro as possible).
...and if anyone is interested in a cheap Antec 900 or Tuniq 120 extreme let me know :-P

When I built "They beat me" I used the stupid antec 900 case too. God did that thing make me irate! The cable managment drove me nuts, the silly hard drive cage thing is just nuts...anyway. last year when that was my main rig I replaced the Antec with the CM 690II advanced. Its amazing! 10 fold better than the antec case. And will house plenty of radiators, fans, and anything else you want or need. Cheap too! The second I replaced my antec 900 with the 690 II Ad I loved it! and after about a year I still don't want to change case's.

Still saving money but I will at some point have a loop in my 690II. You can fit two 240 rads (one in the floor and one in the roof) and a 120 rad in the back, or a 240 with some stand off's. My 2 cent's.
