Lilis are great cases, and I use them whenever I can. They rock for air-cooled rigs. Water? Not so much. Don't get me wrong, it's feasible.

ATCS840 and Obsidian 800D are my choices for water-cooled rigs.

As I said they are customizable, Mark trust me once you go with a Lilly you will wonder why you didn't buy one years ago.

Top Panels : Performance-PCs.com, ... sleeve it and they will come

Bud, my Mozart is still available. Can't put the rad on top but tons of room inside.

are you sure about it ...here a pic of my mozart look at the beautifull piece that fit the hole perfectly





the EVGA classified will have a hard time to fit in the Mozart, the sata cable will touch the fan, I was plaing to put the EVGA inside until I receive it, it's a e-atx ,

Good choice. They say that Corsair case is excellent for WC.

My System Specs

I like both cases personally - I have an ATCS840 with a watercooling setup right now.

I like how CM have brackets for the top fan mounts to put a large rad under it (and have 3x 120mm pushing) and you can put another 2x 120mm rad at the bottom of the case.. currently have the pump sitting there though.
