could not tell if the question was directed to me. If so, yeah - I was looking for a case like you and the deal just fell in my lap ! lol ! No, the member I am buying from is someone else - I will just give him the opportunity to introduce himself.

My issue was that I needed a full tower case that can accommodate water cooling, yet can handle air cooling decently until I can get everything bought for a water loop. It seems the only two case that stood out was the ATCS 840 and the Haf X. The Haf X looked better on the air cooling side, while the ATCS looked better on the water cooling side. And since this guy was ready to sell his ATCS, it made the decision for me !

nice work, I love the look of some of the HAF cases the amd edition is awesome i think http://www.coolermaster.com/product.php?product_id=6632 but yeh i know nothing of where best to mount rads and my understanding of airflow dynamics is just common sense based. But yeah I want a case with a black interior and that alone cuts out a lot of case choices for me... then I was being picky and wanting one directional airflow (all front intake and all rear exhaust or all bottom intake and all top exhaust) because standard case airflow seems messy.

Well, ATCS 840 does not have a black interior - so it is probably out of scope for you. I do not know if you got a chance to glance over

It has some good case choices that will give you some ideas.

As for my setup, I will be cooling CPU and two GPUs. I intend to use the XSPC 360rad kit with one loop, but add an additional 240mm rad to it. So, basically two radiators - a 360 and a 240. I will be getting the EK waterblocks for the GPUs as suggested by some members here in the forum.
