Default Case for Kraken X60

I have the Kraken X60 (Bought it at Frys in Houston last week on vacation)
I also have the CM690 Advanced MK2

The CM690 MK2 fits the X60 at the top but the thickness of the radiator combined with the included fans will not allow a motherboard like my Asus Sabertooth Z77 to be installed. The included fans can also NOT fit under the top case cover as it will not snap closed if they are installed there.

With respect to the bottom of the case, it also fits but the shear size of the radiator will get in the way of the power supply cable and the bottom hard drive cages will have to be removed to even accommodate the radiator.

All in all even though the CM690 MK2 is listed on NZXT's site as being X60 compatible, I think it has more to do with the spacing for the mounting holes as opposed to actually installing the Kraken X60

That being said I am looking for a case that has the clearance at top for fans & radiator(And proper fan mount spacings) to get this thing mounted. Any ideas that won't break the bank???
