Here Well, it is almost done... . Use post 145 for visual reference. They are slightly outdated photos, but you get what I'm saying. You can take the top off pretty easily, and the 2 fans also remove easily. The fiberglass molding I did on the top front with the USB ports takes a little patience and sanding, but again no biggie, just make sure and wear a mask.

Also, if you take the top off, there is a slightly larger gap that I used for 1/2" ID tubing for the externally mounted rad, but at the sizes your planning, the three holes in back should work fine. the cpu/chipset rad is a Swiftech MCR-320 QP triple 120mm mounted inside at the top, the GPU rad is a koolance triple 140mm rad mounted on top. Both reservoirs(2x EK 140) for both loops, as well as the pumps(2x Swiftech MCP 655) themselves are mounted via a dual top/dual pump block, and sit perfectly in my front 5.25" bays for easy fill/draining. Keep in mind that two 5970s overclocked are creating alot of heat that needs to be dissipated by a large surface area. Also make sure that you have the right fans for your rads...low fin desity= Low CFM fans/ High fin density= high CFM fans.
