Im partial to the TT Armor myself. I love it. However, I got the model without the 250mm side panel fan.

I quite liked this one:

http://www.xcase.co.uk/p/345610/antec-p182-black-no-psu---.html

I got my new case. I got the Mozart and it's huuuuuge! No kidding! I'm gonna put a
secondary system in it. The PSU's in seperate part so no heat come from that to MoBo,
the water cooling area has it's own area. What a case!!! Best investment yet! And there's
still loadsa space!!!! I'm getting all my cooling kit 2morra so it'll be up n running by 2mora
night!!! YEEEEEEEEESSS!

Tam,

Thermaltake, Enermax, Danger Den, all great components!
I have a TT Tsunami and I had to drill and tap for two days to get my cooling system in place, but your case is much better suited to liquid cooling plumbing, especially if you're going to use 1/2" tubing. The extra case width is a godsend there.
I didn't see in your list of components, but this case would fit a pair of BlackIce Extreme II 2x120mm radiators with ease.
Also try to use a 100% low conductivity solution, instead of water. I've had issues with water and electronics, so always try to use pure solutions instead of water mixtures.

Nice case. You need to upgrade your sound card & speakers to somethings like a nice 5.1 sound setup. Should't set you back that much.

I advise:
- Creative Sound Blaster X-FI Xtremegamer FATAL1TY Professional Series Sound Card 7.1 PCI w/ 64MB X-RAM
- Logitech (970102) Z-5300e 5.1 Speaker System - 280W RMS - THX-Certified

Looks nice big and durable. The price is kinda reasonable as well.

Go for it.
