And yeah, this isn't going to fit under my desk like my HAF 932 did.. Going to put it on top of desk, where it belongs
Do it! You'll never want to go back.. But definitely do your research beforehand.

Using a H110 cooler just isn't doing this case justice. Maybe you could sell it to a friend to cover some of the cost of buying some more things.
IMO of course
I would like a beast setup like what we have seen on the 900D Demo video of the water cooling capabilities. Money is not really an object. Since I am a water cooling newb, I don't really know about the "gold standard" setups to get. I understand how to put everything together, and am fairly comfortable with plumbing and outdoor fountain work (Sort of similar idea with tubes, pumps, reservoirs, etc). I also have watched a crap-load of videos on setting up a custom water cooled pc (The Linus videos) as well as read several forums explaining what everything does. I have a reasonably good understanding of what every item required for custom watercooling does (in terms of function), I just don't know what the "good brands" or "good models" to seek are. I have always done things in excess, so I would like to keep that track record for my first cooling project. Just need to figure out what will be my ideal build. I do know I would like to at least have 2x480 rads and possibly a 360 rad in the front in push/pull(Overkill for no reason other than...Why not?).My setup currently is this:Components:
-Asus Rampage IV Extreme Mobo
-16GB (4x4) of 1866 Dominator Platinum Ram
-Intel 3930K CPU
-EVGA GTX Titan (GPU) (will also be getting a second for SLI- might wait a bit for this though)
-WD Black Harddrive (2TB)
-2x 240GB Neutron GTX SSD
-1x LG Blu-Ray Writer driveCooling:
Corsair H110 (looks like not gonna be used anymore)
Stockpile of AF120's, AF 140's and SP120's
I would say my budget for Liquid cooling would be preferably under $1500. If solid setup was under $1000 that would also be nice.
