I was going to use my existing case but after reading about the Corsair Obsidian and discovering this discussion thread, I have decided to get the case. Damn you Corsair for making an awesome case!!

But I do have a question. My current radiator is an older Thermochill 120.3 with older 24mm spacing. I know this will not fit with the Obsidian but I plan to mount it in the case using only the holes for the center fan. I will be upgrading to a Feser X-Changer 360 in the future. Will this be enough radiator for my setup? If not, I am thinking of adding a Feser 140mm radiator to the rear 140mm exhaust fan. What do you think?

Thanks.
If you want the best results I'd go with the BIX GTX360 on the top and BIX GTX 240 on the bottom but that's if you can bear the noise created by 1800RPM+ fans. There are a couple of options you have, if you want low noise level you can stick with the feser, get a thermochill for cheaper, or even xspc for even cheaper and run dual loop config. Having a separate loop for the GPUs will result in better overall temps but will cost more money.

For premium parts I'd guess around 500-600$ will be spent on the entire loop give or take if you decide to run single loop or dual loop. Most builds I've seen with 3 or more GPUs usually run a second loop to obtain the most satisfactory temps.

hiding a dual loop in that case is gonna be a bit of effort.

I have a XSPC RX360 (Gentle Typhoons at 1400RPM) on an OC'd I7 920 (4.2Ghz @ 1.27v), the EK NB/SB block of my Classified and a GTX295 (essentially two GTX275's) and my GPU's did not go avove 41c (ambient at 23c) and my CPU didn't go above 45c after playing games for about 3 hours. That being said, I agree that you would want to add additional rad space, maybe two single 120.1 rads (1 in the back and 1 in the bottom) like this guy did on EVGA forums:

http://www.evga.com/forums/fb.ashx?m=163651

This would save you from having to mod the case. Also, I would take a look at these reviews to see what radiators are rated at what wattage of heat load:
