I don't have this case but the bott holds a tripple fine you could fit a 480 and a 240 down there alone. Great case for watercooling almost wanted to sell my 800d for it but I like my cable management

Corsair Obsidian > TJ07 for Water :P

Chances are I would go with a 120.3 instead of my 120.4 and also use my 120.2. However, under those circumstances, and the price if the TJ07, I might as well go with a 300D. It's cheaper, looks cleaner, and could hold my rads with very little modding.

I actually think I will stay with my Antec 1200. When I think about it, it should perform better than the TJ07 and the 300D. I would take the 300D over the TJ, simply because it will look cleaner in the end, and is cheaper. This is why I think my 1200 will perform better than the 300D:

(I should have made two different columns. i.e. positive and negative traits)

300D:

120.3 Radiator up top. It can either blow cool from outside the case, but the hot air will end up inside the case.
If I do it the other way, blowing out the top, warm air from the case will be going through the rad. Not very practice.
This case is meant for water-cooling, so the airflow is terrible.
With a mod, a 120.2 can be placed in the bottom. However, it would probably be best for this radiator to have air coming out of the case, as warm air rises, and the compartment down here is isolated, also, there is very little hardware that will produce heat.
Require me to trade up my 120.4 for a 120.3

Antec 1200
Plenty of airflow
With the 120.4 radiator being external, there is no worry of hot air being put into the case
Top exhaust fan help remove rising warm air.
Can be modified to have nearly invisible wires
The 120.2 is blowing warm air into the case
The 120.4 is receiving warm air from the two exhaust fans of the case - However, this is only half the size of the 120.4

I think you mean the 800D and the airflow is perfectly fine if your with air its just a matter of putting good fans into the case.

Second blowing air up and out of the case through the rad will have almost no effect on temps whatsoever and will be perfectly fine.

Your points about the 800D aren't totally valid, warm air from the case going through the rad isn't a major problem, you can ALSO mount a 120.4 rad externally (so you could have a 120.4, 120.3, and 120.2) and you don't need a whole lot of airflow for watercooling.

Well, I would have a 120.4, 120.3 and a 120.2 all for a Q9550, a 4870X2, and my Northbridge/southbridge fusion block on my Rampage Exreme (X48). Overkill much!

Just saying, it's totally possible with both cases. And I can't speak for myself, but from what I've heard the 800D is a dream to work with.
