Default Watercooling Advice

just need a few ideas, here's a new build
Newegg.com - DFI LP JR P45-T2RS LGA 775 Intel P45 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards mobo
Newegg.com - Intel Core 2 Quad Q8400 Yorkfield 2.66GHz 4MB L2 Cache LGA 775 95W Quad-Core Processor - Processors - Desktops cpu
Newegg.com - Crucial Ballistix Tracer 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory ram
Newegg.com - Western Digital VelociRaptor WD3000HLFS 300GB 10000 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive - Internal Hard Drives hdd
Newegg.com - Antec Skeleton Black ATX Mini Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases case
Newegg.com - EVGA 896-P3-1258-AR GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 SSC Edition 896MB 448-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards gfx
Newegg.com - OCZ Fatal1ty OCZ700FTY 700W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Power Supplies psu

The big question I have is watercooling. I have looked at a few different options, and the only one I seem to like is the Zalman Reserator XT ::: Zalman, leading the world of Quiet Computing Solutions ::: , obviously it needs to be an external resevoir with that case, but I'm also looking for a small bit of portability, we have small LAN parties where I am at. THanks for the help!

wow I just saw the case you are ordering.

Are you absolutely sold on that case?

It just looks like problems waiting to happen to me.

If so you may want to construct something as you cannot do the traditional rad box mount.

Which kind of defeats the purpose of the case.

If you really want an open air case with water cooling I would look into the danger den torture rack.

there are some pictures on xoxide of that case being wc'd, I have no idea how they did it though
Xoxide.com - Customer Images - View

****EDIT****
If I can't get a decent mini or micro tower, I will most likely just get a full tower, such as the Newegg.com - XCLIO 2000 Black &Ttitanium Finish 1.0 mm SECC / ABS Plastic ATX Full Tower Extreme Cooling Computer Case - Computer Cases

that case just has a singe 120 fan rad on it. Aspire will fill us in completely but I would imagine a good air cooler would be as good as that.

The danger den case can mount 2 2x120 radiators on it if needed.

Just get a full tower man, but if you are going to get one.. and spend that much dough... aim for a TJ07 for watercooling... either that or a Lian-li ... if you wanna save some cash, I have found setting up the loop in my HAF932 to be very simple without any modding needed.
