Default ITX case for watercooling.

Hi

Currently looking at going back to an ITX build as I don't care to have my tower taking up space in my cramped area. I am looking at going to a full watercooling loop.

I plan on cramming the following gear into said case:

Asus M6I ITX z87
4670k
Swiftec H220
GTX 680 / EK block (or an R9 290/EK block if I can sell my 680s).
2 x M4 64GB RAID 0
500GB WD blue for my user folder/programs
1TB Momentus Hybrid Drive for games ect

Ive looked at a few solutions so far, but none of the ones I have been looking seemed to have what I'd like. Able to fit a larger than 160mm PSU, fit a dual 120mm rad and a full size card. Aside from the list I have here, anyone care to toss a suggestion or two for case's that could meet this criteria?

Prodigy - out due to psu restrictions
CM Elite 120 or 130 - lack of space to mount a 240mm radiator (I love this case btw, have two of them here lol)
Hadron and Sugo cases use SFF psu so those are out.
Caselabs are beautiful, but entirely out of my price range.
Obsidian 250D is def looking like it might be exactly what I want, but I haven't seen any actual reviews yet and I cant quite get a good picture in my head of what it would look like.

Is that PSU 100% modular? Unfortunately mine is and that makes clearance even more of an issue.
