That is a nice, compact case.  Can you still mount a 200mm fan in the top with that massive CPU cooler?

Much lighter and easier to move around then my HAF-X case.

light it isn't but not as heavy as yours, already got 3 120's and 2 80mm blue led fans pushing/pulling air thru it. I would have to change out the evo 212 (that thing is huge!) if I put in a 200. 
 My cpu idles in the 30's c-gpu in low 20's c  or low 90's f-cpu  low 70's-gpu. not coming even close to having cooling problems. Might  look cooler with a 200mm led fan but probably wouldn't change temps much.
 Used the evo 212 for my cooler because I new it was good at pulling heat. had used a couple of them to replace leaking liquid coolers on a couple of socket 1366 I7's (they are known to run hot.)
 Think I'd rather keep the evo than have the big fan.

I've had a Corsair H100 water cooler for a couple of years now.  Simply because I know how much heat my i7 930 can put out under load and I wanted a quiet, low profile, low maintenance, cooling solution.  And I've never been happier with my decision to go water cooled.

Plus, I know scores of others who have also gone with sealed water cooler systems and never had any problems with leaks or pump failures.

 Actually just one of them leaked, it was a Corsair but might have been a different model. The other I didn't use because it was missing the backing plate so I couldn't mount it properly.

That is the thing with these sealed units.  You do have to handle them with extreme care because the hoses are not very durable when it comes to aggressive handling, and are not replaceable.  The plus side is that water cooling is far more efficient at transferring heat then traditional heat sync and fan solutions.

 This one actually was leaking from somewhere near the copper part that makes contact with the cpu. It was leaking very little when I caught it. other wise would have lost the video card it was dribbling on too at the least. probably the only reason I caught it in time was the fluid was mixing with some of the arctic silver and leaving a small light grey drip pattern on the back of the video card.
 My close call kinda soured me on liquid cooling for awhile, I liked it when I was using it. With air cooled and good thermal paste, only thing that can fail would be the fan, super easy to fix or replace (fan) and my temps are fine. I did a 100% load test for 2.5 hours yesterday, got up to about 60c. But I don't think my cpu isn't quite as hot running as yours . Temp is actually to the right on the pic. Everest doesn't monitor my temps correctly.

U should also do a video of that thing to really show off the pretty lighting and show how it isn't that loud like you would think . It is a shame you didn't get pics of the liquid cooling as I thought that was cool for the short while it worked for you.

I want to eventually get a newer case so that I can open the side easier

I never had this computer water cooled, that was my older I7 the one Adrian has. Switched it (due to the leak) to a CM evo 212 air cooler  before selling it to him.

Are you talking about mine with it's 4, 200mm, red lighted fans and all that eery red, LED lighting inside a black case?

When I came over and saw it it did look better. :) Also that other case you are planning to sell that I was playing games on looks nice as well. Maybe we can all play a game together? How about Left 4 Dead 1? It will have to be after Christmas but with the gaming rig you have and that other one I can use while at your place and with Sandman's gaming rig he can host a game or we can find a server and play together.

 I could probably do that or left for dead 2 (got both). I would need to know what game in advance though to have it on the other  tower.
