Well, apart from the Cosmos S suggested above, there is also the ThermalTake Armor+ and the ThermalTake Xaser VI

A Lian Li V2000 can fit at least two triple radiators internally. The Silverstone TJ07 can do the same, but can also accommodate a quadruple radiator (480GTX) in the lower bay with little modification (relocating HDDs). Either of those would be good for your setup. Great quality, fantastic looks, and spacious.

Thanks for the suggestions guys... basically the Thermaltake Kandalf (water cooled)that i have seems to be good for good oc's but as soon as i try to go a little extreme like 4.5 GHZ (15.5volts) the temps are off the charts. Question will a top of the line either single or dual Rad + good block take care of this problem... or am i just pipe smoking?

I recommend any Lian Li Full tower case. These things are massive and have plenty of room for watercooling.

I have this baby and there is room galore.

I suspect that I could esily put in 3 water-cooling systems.

2x 240 radiators on the side
single 120 at the back
all reservoirs and two pump in the 5.25" slots
Last pump on the floor or in the ceiling slot.

Just speculating.

In a year's time I might well put that into practice.

Do not want to lose warranties on the graphics cards by removing the on-board coolers yet.
