Many nice designs that are designed by people who watercool but nobody want to mass produce the cases which I find is retarded as whoever builds them will start to really own that market share in which water cooling is now getting really popular with those nice hot chips coming out. Watch and see....This area will start to get more and more people coming in to cool down their ridiculously hot systems. Here is a friend of mine Mick64's design--> Case Design for Liquid Cooling - XtremeSystems Forums It is perfect for mass production but none of the companies he contacted want to build it.

He is going to cool a Q9550 and a 4870X2 with the cheapest 240 rad on the market. Like I had said earlier that he could but only with awesome fanage because he is throwing some heat. Forget about OC'ing too much as well.

I've seen it. I wonder if it can be produced in limited series here in Canada by some metal shop... and what price/cost point it may have.

Just for the record, I'm cooling an OC'ed Q9550 and an OC'ed GTX260 with an MCR220 with only 2 fans in pull (Noctuas NF-P12) and the results are pretty good.

Furthermore, my rad is installed on the ceiling of my cosmos (internally) with the fans pulling cool air in - not the most optimal setup.

I don't know how hot your 4870x2 gets under load, but if it's anything close to a GTX260, give the MCR220 a shot.

Here is a comparison...From this site's 4870X2 review! Just read it properly however...You will notice one core on the bottom and the other on the top. Add them up! The 4870X2 throws some serious heat. Heck you could have 2 GTX 260's and still fall short of the temps a 4870X2 gives.
