I guess that will fit at the back This expansion will need another resevoir at least, to support GPU. So I'm not sure that will fit, I think it fit under the GPU tho..
Well, that case is awesome, but too expensive for me. It looks like Enthoo's brother. The Enthoo's price is fine to me, but I guess the windows is too small and will not show the Swiftech H240X2 nicely.

I have had a 280mm Corsair Hydro H110i in pull mounted on top of the case without any issues. Depending on your mainboard, you even have clearance for push/pull if you desire.
120mm radiator fits at the back, no problem. You even have room for a 240/360 radiator on the front. Talking of which, i am ordering a 360 radiator and a GPU block one of these days to build into my 540.

I've owned the Corsair Graphite 730T, NZXT H440, Thermaltake Core P5 and Phanteks Enthoo Luxe.

All I can say is: buy the Enthoo Luxe. Its an amazing case with very pretty leds, insane details in terms of overall quality and its really awesome to build a system in it.
I can really recommend it! If you want some more details or some pics of my loop inside the case hit me up thumb.gif

Oh, I forgot this case was $250. It is a lot of money. I wanted a caselabs but that will have to wait. Well nothing wrong with the corsair case. They make a good product.

1 more vote for Phantek from me.
My build ist with the Ethno Prime. Very similar to the Luxe.

Plenty of space, greate cable management, greate airflow and great case fans thumb.gif

PSU and pump and all of the cabels can be hidden in the back.

You can check out my build log and album to give you some ideas.

I´m upgrading the build in a few days so more picks are coming!

Someone in the 540 owners club had a 120 rad in the back and it made the temps worse, presumably because it restricted the good airflow the case is meant for. But the 540 can do a 360/240 or 280/280 which is plenty for 2 components.

Well thanks, I like the looks, but I'm 'concerned' it will not show the water resevoir what good. I like a window that will not block the view at components, like the motherboard and water resevoir (H240X2). Also I'm not sure about the intake: won't the front block air to get in? Pictures are always nice, especially if you got a Swiftech set as well. How did you like the 730T?

That is overkill indeed I guess. Plenty of space then. Maybe 280mm will support 1 CPU + 1 GPU (both overclocked)? Seems all cases in the openingspost got decent options for radiators tho.

As a rule of thumb, you want 120mm radiator space for each component + 120mm extra in total as headroom.
A 280 radiator for both the CPU and GPU could work if both were on stock speeds but its insufficient for two overclocked components. Maybe you could get away with it if you have the radiator-fans on full speed but that most likely result in a whole lot of sound. Kind of screws the purpose of water cooling also.
