I think you'll have trouble finding a quiet, full-ATX case. The Define R3 has plenty of room for the hardware you're putting in there. Small cases have better airflow anyway, and therefore less need for more fans.
EDIT: Maybe a Silverstone Fortress FT02?

Its not that I need a full atx case I'd just like the option to increase my watercooling in the future by adding another radiator when I decide to go SLI and I most likely will do that.

That Silverstone Fortress FT02 is a great looking case, I wish I could try before I buy to test out how radiators would fit in some cases. I'll trying looking around to see if anyone has water cooled this case.

There is, its a really nice case with an awesome 2 compartment thing going on. I was wondering how well it would do, with a few modifications It might be really good a water cooling case.

You don't need to pick a case that will fit all the radiators that you need unless you really want it all to fit inside. Just get one that suits your need of silence and fits a 240/360MM radiator.

Then later when you need more radiator power you can mount one(pretty much any size) behind the case externally like shown here:

& The hardware piece needed to do this is here:

It looks pretty good IMO. wink.gif PS; nice avatar.

You cannot go wrong with a silverstone case and also you can fit a 2x180 or even 3x180 radiator in it and it can still be fully dust filtered.
Edit: here is a silverstone rv02 and an ft02 water cooled
this is the rv02 with a dual 180 mm
450
And here is the ft02 with a triple 180mm
399

Any fans outside the case will make more noise. Would be nice to have it all in if I'm going to be spending all this money I can find a case that will stay quiet even after a couple add ons.

That ft02 is deceivingly large.

You could get super silent fans? 800 - 1200 RPM fans won't make hardly any noise. Or you could just mount a bigger radiator than what is needed and don't even put any fans on it at all. It'd completely passive.

So I founds this and now I am leaning towards the 550D again. I can't find any pictures of any cases actually set up this way though.
