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.

If you want allu cases, consider the 700D 800D, which has lots of room, hotswap bays, a side window, etc.

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

Those are steel.

If you're willing to shell out the money TJ07 is the best case on the market, and the nicest. 700d/800d are steel, but also terrific watercooling cases.

For all (or nearly all) metal construction. Corsair 800D(700 without window), Mountain Mods (cube shape), CaseLabs, or Silverstone TJ07 all fit the bill.

it all really depends on what you plan on doing. Look at your build, budget, and what you want to do.

800D is cheapest price wise (relatively speaking), well built, intended for WC, and has great wire management.

TJ07 is going to setup very similar to the 800D, but cost you $100 more.

CaseLabs and Mountain Mods cases are going to be a lot more flexible in how you can mount things, but they come with a higher price tag.

You won't go wrong with any of those cases, you just have to figure out what you want to build.

Well, I do have an old aluminum case that would hold everything, so I think I'll try and see how I can mod it to do the job. It quite big, and drilling/cutting it up should be pretty easy.

EDIT:
Nope, the old case isn't going to cut it (no pun intended!). So, back to the hunt for a good aluminum case. Going to use a 360 rad internally...
