Default Need advice with i7 in a Silverstone SG03

Hey, I'm building an i7 system, and need some advice about the case I'm interested in using. I really like the size and looks of the Silverstone SG03. My concern is cooling though. It is a pretty small case which is what I like, but the i7 runs pretty hot right?
The system has the following:

i7 920
Intel DX58SO
6GB DDR3 1600
eVga gtx 275
Corsair TX750 PS

I was either going with the cool master V8 or Silverstone NT06 cooler. I was planning on overclocking it to maybe 3-3.5GHz, nothing crazy.

How's all this going to fit in the system? Are there going to be cooling issues?

Thanks for any help

V8 wont fit AFAIK.

I've successfully used the following in that same case: Coolermaster GeminII (passive), NT06 (didnt perform amazingly), Corsair H50 and recently (with some modding) an Asetek LCLC-240mm. To get the lclc to fit though, i had to make the front hard drive rack unuseable by removing its side bracket. But it does work .

Thanks for the info! I've decided to go with the Cool Master Sniper instead. I've read some good reviews about that case. And I know I'm not going to get into cooling and/or expansion issues with that case. It's too bad, that silverstone case looks really good.
