I got the Dark Base Pro 900 rev. 2 but no watercooling.

I do have the ASUS RYUJIN 360 AIO cpu cooler mounted on top...

I believe 420 rads fit also. And IIRC it can hold up to 4 RADs...

Also

USB 3.0 2
USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type C 1
Expansion slots 8
Fan mounting locations 10

ASUS Hero XI + Intel i9 9900K + ASUS Ryujin 360 + Corsair 32GB 3200MHz + ASUS 2080Ti + Samsung 970 nvme 500GB + 3x Crucial MX500 2TB (For Games Only ) + ASUS Thor 1200W + Be Quiet! Dark Base Pro 900 v2 + ASUS XG35VQ + ISP 1Gb down/40Mb up

...either free-style with TT Core P5, 7 et al (Dremel included) - or go with the superb Lian Li PC-O11 XL

Just so you are aware, your average 2080ti will dump out about 330w of heat in a gaming scenario where the GPU is pegged.
Now take into account your average 360mm Radiator is good for dissipating roughly 300-350 watts of heat with good fans then you run into a situation where the 2080ti will be cooled minimal vs air cooling and your water temp will be extremely high and you will have to run the fans at a very high RPM just to keep the temps at a somewhat decent level.

I would do 2 360mm Radiators at minimum personally.

It's not clear to me if you're just going to cool on water the GPU or also the CPU. If it's both, a single radiator I see it insufficient.

I had 1080 Ti pull 300W with EVGA AIO (120mm) and hit 5XC. Also in the past I have had 360 + 240 to cool about 1100W of heat and was still fine. I am not trying to get 2C water delta here.

On midtower cases I have researched or owned: (edit: I only have looked at quiet cases, ie ones with closed fronts but still decent airflow)
Fractal design R6/R7 has good front clearance for rad, poor top clearance unless you dont mind fans/rad hanging over ram limiting ram choices and being annoying to work on. Front rad only should work well.

Fractal design R5 has clearance for top and front rads, top limited to 30mm rad and push or pull only. Front, like R6/R7 has plenty of room for push/pull with mosts rads and reservoir space without banging into large gpu. But R5 is dated, lacks top filter, and front requires modding to prevent recirculating expelled rad air, but it was fixable unlike R6/R7 lack of top clearance. But if single rad, R6/R7 might be better option.

Phanteks P600 has good top clearance for top rad, but front rad too tight and eliminates room for reservoir with rad with large gpu.

other phanteks have poor airflow, bought evolve, dremeled it to point destroyed it ie like I did with R6, then tossed it.

I used to have a large full tower lian li case, but much happier with smaller midtower cases myself, i typically use 2x240 or now 2x280, more than enough for single titan/2080ti and 8 core intel heater with 700rpm fans, typically 6-8c delta air/water gaming..

I already started ordering parts. New cases all require internal reservoirs. I used to really like cases with 5.25" with bay reservoirs. I have to also order AM4 water block. I would like to get something that could potentially be used with AM5 or Intel.

In regards to CPU Block here, The best deal i think is dazmode heatkiller cpu iv for dual purpose CPU blocks. You just need an conversion kit for it. However, the only concern is that block design is old (2015) and it may get updated for Intel 7nm/Amd 5nm. Only 105Cad for the acryl block (the adapter would be 30cad whenever you need it). I actually have one around with intel kit (never used as i ended up going to optimus for office build) too but giving to friend.

The issue with them is shipping wise. If your in an hurry, it will take some time for them to come with all the shipping delays. I myself have stuff stuck in certain countries because they can't ship. The aliexpress blocks perform reasonable but the quality doesn't compare with heatkiller and heatkiller does slightly outperform it.
