If you are able to pit a second 360 rad in the front, that would be my opinion as well, assuming money isnt too much of an issue...

2x 360 rad
2x gpu blocks
1x cpu block
2x pumps

throw some Noctura fans on there with a fan controller to keep them at low speeds when you dont need the cooling, and youll have a quiet, yet cool machine.

But I guess your looking at $700+ cooling system there... damn that money!


EDIT:

Maybe since you only have 1 GPU now, you just get the res, 2x pumps, cpu, and gpu. then down the road buy the 2nd gpu block, 2nd res, and just do an overhaul of the system when you get your second graphics card... split up the cost since you dont need all of the cooling right away... adding a rad is easy down the road. Its things like pumps, you should get first

Adding a 360 to the front takes some modding, you need to cut the internal bay case and drill out a few rivets. That's why I went with a external mount, I didn't want to hack this case in the event I want to sell it later on. I used a MCB120 revision 2 "Radbox" . The 932 already has the tube pass thru holes in that top plate.

I agree with your edit.

I'm currently starting to mod my HAF 932 case in order to start putting my watercooling loop together.

It IS a PITA. I removed the bottom drive bay and am really considering removing the top one as well as I have an AquaComputer Aqualis PRO 450ml res that is most likely going to have to get mounted on the upper rear of the case if I don't remove the upper drive bays (5.25")

I've had this case for years and THOUGHT that it would be big enough for the loop that I am starting to build...boy was I wrong LOL.

I'm about to start my own build log as some of the situations that I am running into are just too hilarious not to share :-)

Good luck with yours, but don't be surprised if you'll have to make some mods to your case. I really didn't want to (though I already have), but at least it'll give me a reason to upgrade later on and since this is my very first build, I need the experience.

It's a long time i'm modifing the case cause the ring of water, finally i've found this solution that looks clear and short as possible, with a bay reservoir, a 360 + a 120 radiators, 1 controller for 4 fans. I need the drive bay cause there are 6 HD to install:D. Last thing to do it's about some lights and i'm waiting for a strip blue led that i''ve ordered.
Sorry for my english
