Default Good case for watercooling

Would this be a good case for watercooling? I want to put some neon light s in there and aslo is the psu any good? I plan on putting an AMD venice core 3200 and a BFG or EVGA 6800GT overclocking so i need decent cooling and for it to look rly cool. I also want to put an LCD display in the top 5 1/4 bay to check my temps and fan rpm's and stuff like that. If anyone has some other case suggestiong id like to hear them.

You know, a case i've seen that would look absolutely beatiful with water cooling perhaps and has gotten some decent ratings is the Soyo Blue Ice clear. Might want to look at it, but the one youve chosen seems a great pick too. Lil review & pic- http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,1759,1649577,00.asp

that would be one b**** of a case to work with
imagine trying to hide wires
personally i dont really like them very much
i would say either the kandalf, the armor, or the cm stacker
all are excellant cases with plenty of room

ya i have the shark right now and you could fit wc in it but i will be getting the armor soon i have heard good things about it. the stacker or kandalf are both good cases as well the stacker is a bit bigger i think though so it depends all are around 150-200 range maybe a bit less depending on where you buy.
