One question, the fan grills on the bottom look very restrictive.
Have you though about fabricating an open-styled grill (old Thermochill style) that is riveted to the case to keep structural integrity? You could also add a stretched out speaker cloth, or some other type of free flowing filter fixed to a frame with neodymium magnets for easy removal for cleaning.

EDIT: Have you changed the op-amps in the I/V section of your Ti HD?

I am going to try to use the method jibz used and just use stands for the radiator to keep it directly off the case floor. Should help a bit w/ airflow. However I think my HD7970 is too long, if so then I'll be cutting the bottom of the case to fit the radiator properly. I don't think I'd need any sort of radiator grill if I do have to cut it. Once I screw the unibody frame back in place it should be structurally sound.

And I haven't done any sort of modding to my Titanium HD. I probably won't either. I had opa627au's in my old STX and really didn't notice all that much, especially not worth the price. Also have a opa627au for the fronts on my Prelude. Although it came w/ the card when I bought it.

This looks absolutely amazing. I'm hoping to get some pictures of my new rig taken once I accumulate the necessary hardware, but I don't think it'll look half as good as this one.

Gotta ask though... Why tri-fire? Especially now with Kepler coming soon...

I am going to try a single Hd7970 for a bit to see how it handles. Skyrim and SWTOR aren't all that demanding so we'll see how it handles 7680 x1440.

If next-gen Nvidia cards actually as good as they claim then I'll sell off my hd7970 and go w/ a couple of them. But I haven't seen any real facts that it will be released anytime soon. I am not going to wait 3-4 months.
