The original Plan:

And stuff a whole lot of awesome in it.

The NEW Plan:

M-ATX is out, ITX in IN! Go smaller! Stuff more in it!

I thought about that, but it wouldn't look right, and I wanted the full tower to make sure I have enough width to run the PSU sideways. I have a heavily modded Phantom full tower from my previous build but it's too modded for this build, since I want the case to look like OEM quality or better. I ordered a white/red Phantom today, since I want red LEDs. The case itself will be sandblasted first, then modded, then repainted. Probably some form of red chassis with white exterior

Thanks! For anyone wondering, here's a diagram I made planning out the loop. The green circles indicate where there will be Y splitters. I plan to run most of the loop parallel to minimize pressure drop and optimize flow. As many things, the loop changed. Now I have a 240 AND a 360 rad planned in the loop!
