Quiet? Fractal Design R3?
It has holes at the top to allow a 240 rad up top.
Not to mention it has sound dampening all over.

But when you say WC'ing system. What are you looking to do?
What size rads etc?

No idea really, just starting to ponder the gear I'll need, and my current case is packed already. I would like something large enough to accommodate enough rad for at least the CPU and GPU, plus possible expansion. Is that a tall order?

Well, what rad were you thinking? Because some rads very in thickness.

Considering an EK 240 or 360, but I don't know exactly how large they are.

Well, I'd like to get back into something aluminum, so the SilverStone FT-02 looks pretty good.

Well the FT-02 or RV-02 aren't very watercooling friendly.

If you want allu cases, consider the 700D, which has lots of room.

I've put 2x 360 and a 120 rad inside Raven, custom hdd mounts x6 but external DVD

Just depends if you want to mod or just be able to "fit" the WC gear
